Colors of July - July Photo Challenge

 

"Colors of July"

July Photo Challenge

 

This challenge is about capturing the colorful events of Independence Day celebrations. Think lots of color!

The rules of this competition are that the image needs to be taken between today, July 1st through July 31st closing at 11:45pm.   This challenge is about expanding your opportunities, so please don't upload an archived image! Anything goes as long as it represents an image with lots of color.  Note, It doesn't have to be taken on Independence Day, but just represent the colorful events that are celebrated this month!

In the caption, please describe your location, date and settings and anything special that you would like to include.  Please only upload one image per person!

Winner of this challenge will get their image posted on the main Meetup page during the next challenge.  Starting on August 1st, please come back and vote on your favorite image by posting in the "comments" section.  The image with most votes wins the challenge.  BTW, you must vote in order for your image to win the challenge, even if your image may get the most votes.

BTW, I am working on seeing if we can offer a prize for the winner in addition to having the winning image on the main page.  Stay Tuned!

Go out there and start shooting, then click "HERE" to upload your image!

    Harvey, did you count the votes that were placed directly with the photos and not here in the general comments?

    • Harvey A.

      Whoops!! Guess I have been distracted! Sorry, I will follow-up tomorrow AM.

    How about letting the winner of the last challenge be the tie-breaker?

    Can we use Survey Monkey for this??

    Put all photos that received more than 1 vote - put them in a hat and select one - that is the winner. Or you could email the entries to our club and have them select one.

    So sorry everyone to let this go by the wayside. Unfortunately we do not have enough votes to use for the competition. Interestingly enough, those that voted had voted on photos from others that didn't vote, so I can't select any of those photos. Not sure what to do! Help me out here!

    I'm voting for Rosemary's. I love the lady's expression.

    I am voting for Rick Budde. I think the lady represents the month of july big time.

    It's time to vote on your favorite image! PLEASE ONLY VOTE ON ONE PHOTO! Posting is now (almost) closed with 10 images to vote on (there are 11, but first photo is just a title image)! Voting will end at 9pm on August 4th, when the winner will have their image posted on the Meetup Site.

    Just go ahead and make a post here on the Meetup page for your favorite photo. If you would rather vote anonymously (except for me knowing) send me a direct email. Note, you have to vote to win. BTW, non-attendees can also vote. Winner will be the cover photo for the Meetup group next month.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
