This month's theme, selected by last month's winner, Valentino, is Picture Post Card - with Caption. We all have pictures that would make great cards, especially with the right caption or tag-line. For this contest we want some well-composed captures matched with an appropriate caption such that it would make a great advertisement, post card, holiday card, greeting card or gag card for some type of product or occasion. They may be serious or humorous, like - the caption a picture of a baby monkey as a ‘congratulations on your first born’.
Some light to moderate post processing is permitted on this one - but not too excessive. The caption should ideally be part of the picture but I know this can be a challenge for some depending on what software they have, so instead simply add the caption above or below the picture, and of course to the Subject line when you post. Pictures without a caption will not qualify for the finals.
Please give some thought to the caption - you don't want to wake up a week later and have a better line. This should be fun one!!!!
Captive subjects welcome but as always, NO pets or farm animals as they do not belong in the wildlife forum.
