    Welcome to Image of the Month for April 2017 - old format!!

    The entries seem to have diminished under the new style IOTM, as many don't like or can't get on with the new system. So, we are going to trial reverting to old style for some months and see if participation comes back up.

    Rules of IOTM:


    1. Read the rules

    2. One entry allowed per member

    3. The closing date for entries will be Monday 1st May at midnight - this will allow any photos taken late on in the month time to be processed and entered into the competition

    4. Entries must be taken in the current month of April 2017 to qualify, and EXIF will be required in the photos to verify this. Photos without EXIF will be removed from the voting stage

    5. Post your entries directly below into this thread

    6. After the closing date for entries a new voting thread will be created for members to vote on

    7. LINKED IMAGES WILL BE EXCLUDED - Please only attach images.

    8. Please do not comment on individual photos posted

    As said please post your images into the thread, and the staff look forward to seeing the entries, which hopefully will be increased. If anyone does have any questions about the old format, please post into the thread, and we will be happy to answer them

    Indeed, hopefully.
    If not then pointless Brian doing the work, we can let the forum do it again.

    That was a subtle hint, Tenchy style folks :)

    Having only been a member of the forum for a month or so, can someone confirm the difference between the old and new - as far as I can see the only difference is posting your image to a thread rather than a gallery - not too sure how that will encourage more entries as its just as easy to post either way

    Yes you are basically correct. However many prefer the thread based format for viewing, one can simply scroll up and down to view the full size image. In the gallery the thumbnails are pants and cycling through is a tad tedious compared.
    Also many people found it hard to find out how to vote. I suspect many people gave likes thinking they have actually voted.

    It could just be reduced activity, we shall see how it goes.

    @Pteranadon - your image contains no EXIf - please reupload the image so that the EXIF is displayed
