This months challenge, chosen by our most recent winner Linwood Fergason is “Tell me a story.”

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but some shots tell a story better than others. For this exercise, find an image that, when first viewed, immediately tells a narrative. Not just “pretty” or “great action” but where from expressions or context you cannot but see and hear a story of what came before, or what is about to come, what people are thinking or saying, all from one shot. So while we usually want a great shot – here we want a great story first.

Archive shots are permissible.

The top images will be selected by the winner of the previous months challenge and will be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo.
The winning image will be added to the Monthly Challenge Winner’s Gallery for the Sports Forum.
The monthly winners will also choose the finalists and the theme for the following month.

I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!

Good luck!!!
