Summer Flight (NO Airshows)

This challenge closed over 3 years ago.

The Challenge

As the long-running Summer 2013 Airshow excludes everything else, let’s have another challenge for everything else :-)

  1. Accepted photos should look like summer – so if the ground is visible, there should be no snow on the ground; if trees are visible, there should be foliage on them – you get the picture :-)
  2. New work, please, and definitely no previous avatar challenge winning images!
  3. NO airshow pictures, please enter those in the Summer 2013 Airshow challenge

Please note: group rules apply


  1. As close to straight out of the camera as possible please. No composites at all. No superimposed images. This is the Vision of Flight Photography challenge group NOT the Vision of Flight PhotoShop challenge group. Thanks!
  1. WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!
  1. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with added writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for the photo that you’d like to represent the group – should look good in square thumbnail

Rewards & Prizes

  1. Winner will be Group avatar until the next one (please make sure it’s in the group!)
  2. Bragging rights
  3. Features for the Top 10 and 2 host choices (or as many from the top 10 that are in the group, plus the remaining places as ‘hosts’ choices’).

Additional Information

  1. Please remember this is the “Vision of Flight photography” challenge group :-) (not the Vision of Flight Photoshop group!)
  1. Works not added to the group cannot be featured when they end in the top 10 (‘computer says NO’). Adding to the group once the challenge is over will be too late. Please add your work to the group as you add it to the challenge! :-)
