Fixed Lens Photo Challenge #262: Subject: Thankful.

As the Thanksgiving holiday draws near here in the states let this challenge focus on things we are thankful for in our lives. Whether or not we will be celebrating with friends and family on Thursday we all have something in our lives that we are thankful for. This topic is wide open to your creative interpretation.


Remember, if you post a photo, you may be the winner. Be prepared to host and judge a new challenge.

To submit, click the button labeled "POST REPLY" and put your photo title in the first line of the post, above your photo. Your camera brand and model must appear in the post. Include additional EXIF data, if you like.

Enter just one photo.

Post until Monday noon GMT, November 27, 2023..

Rules:
Camera: Any fixed-lens camera, all brands and models. Cell phones are also included. No DSLRs!
Time: Any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible except photos that have won other POTN competitions.
Size: Photo must be no less than 800 pixels and no more than 1600 pixels on the longest side, with no borders.
Postprocessing: Do whatever you like and the host will decide if it fits the theme.
Photo display: Photos must appear in this thread to be eligible.
Title your photo.
No commenting and no likes until the challenge has ended.
People may also post photos after the winners are announced.

Voting: Once the challenge is closed on Monday noon anyone may cast their votes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places. People who didn't enter a photograph are also allowed to vote. 1st Place = 3 points, 2nd Place = 2 points, and 3rd Place = 1 point.
Note: The host of the challenge may also enter a photo and is encouraged to do so. Should the host win, the runner up will host the next challenge, so as to avoid the same person hosting in two consecutive weeks.

Hosting:
1. The challenge host is the winner of the last challenge.
2. Once your win is announced, copy the sticky and start a thread in the Competitions forum with this title: Fixed-Lens Challenge #XXX: Subject
4. Soon after noon GMT on the next Tuesday, post the sum of the votes for first, second, and third place. No ties, please.
5. If the winner can't be contacted and doesn't respond by Wednesday noon GMT, the second-place winner will host the challenge. If both are unavailable, the third-place winner will host.

Schedule: One challenge every week, on the following schedule:
1. New Topic: As soon as possible after winning.
2. Posting Starts: Right after topic is announced.
3. Posting Stops: Monday noon GMT.
4. Winners Announcement: As soon as possible, after Tuesday noon GMT.
 
Not many entries. Not many votes to count.

Stiga wins this round with 6.

Any puds left Rob?
 
Oops just seen this - not really switched over yet as still potning about on the old site. Iā€™ll try to be more observant!
 
Ooops! I have only just found the results, I don't think my email notifications are 200&

Thanks for the win. I'll get a new topic up asap
 
At POTN, NixEre won the Thankful challenge. We have a problem here, folks. Running a challenge in parallel in two places just doesn't work.
 
That's there and this is here. ??? Perhaps we should change the number?

Won't matter in a few weeks though when POTN ends.

It'll be chaotic when POTN ends, or when the challenge ends at POTN. There'll be two winners unless one person happens to win in both places. Which one will be the real winner, the one who'll host the next round?

Apparently you duplicated Thankful over here without announcing it over there. Some people entered both versions, some just one. The Focus version got few entries and few votes, presumably because few people knew about it. One entry was yours even though you were the host. All that is chaotic enough already.

Hi, Nic, welcome to FoP!

Have you thought about restarting your Fun Photos thread? I did enjoy that on POTN.
