Hello, and welcome to the twentieth Salon Challege! My thanks to Ray Sachs who has passed on the baton. This time I am setting a brief which can be interpreted widely, so let your imagination run free! I am looking not only for literal interpretations but also for creativity and imagination; the impact of, perhaps, or the consequences of. The theme is SOCIAL MEDIA. It is now an integral part of modern life - loathe it or love it you cannot ignore it. From the use of the hashtag (#) to the way the "twittersphere" reacts to - and impacts - major world events, from the quest for Facebook "likes" to the rise of Periscope and the increasing use of social tools and channels in customer interactions, social media is here to stay - so show me what you think of it. Closing date is the 4th December. Rules are simple................ 1. Either take a picture that matches the nominated theme or select one from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the picture in order to enter it. 2. Only one entry per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that is OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement picture that this is what you've done. You can add or change the title and add to the edit line to let everyone know. 3. The decision of the curator at the end of the challenge is final - don't give him/her a hard time about it: this is just a friendly photo challenge, after all! 4. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator for the next Salon Challenge and as soon as possible post a message in a new thread in the PL Photo Challenges forum, with details of the new theme. Don't forget - that opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules. 5. The curator can't enter his or her own salon.
