This year we have decided to go away from an annual Bluebell competition, and the new competition to replace it is entitled 'Blooms'. So, out with the camera, and let's see those blooms posted into this thread :).



RULES OF THE BLOOMS CHALLENGE

1. Read the rules
2. Pictures must be of 'Blooms' taken this year 2022 - EXIF will be required in the photos.
3. The competition is open to all forum members
4. The competition closes midnight Sunday 17th July 2022
5. Please upload the image directly to the forum and please do not link from a hosting site. Linked images will be removed
6. Pictures are allowed to be taken anywhere - in situ is not a prerequisite.
7. Maximum entries per member three images
8. Images must be unique to the competition, and not have been posted elsewhere on the forum


Post your pictures here below, and when the competition finish date arrives, there will be a poll for members to vote for their favourites.

Good luck to all, let’s see those Blooms!

I hate to be a pain in the derriere, but June 12 is long before we have any real blooms here in Canada. Could this possibly be extended until at least the middle of July?

Not much in Australia either at this time of year. We are just a month away from the end of Autumn and then it's winter! Are plastic flowers allowed? :)
P.S. Autumn is known as "Fall" for those that live on the left side of the planet. We on the right side know "Fall" as something we old folks do so we can get a new hip!

Well there are lots of flower shots coming on forum, so why not consider an entry in this competition? Remember, the entries have to be unique to the competition.

Just a reminder of Rule #8. Images must be unique to the competition, and not have been posted elsewhere on the forum.

Entries that do not conform to the rules(see post 1) will not go through to the voting stage.

@Jay Mcgillicudy your daffodil entry appears in another thread so would fall foul of the competition rule #8

Plenty of time to get some shots in(up to 3 entries per member), the submission period doesn't end until the 17th of July.

Yes if the EXIF shows a similar photo taken at a different time, that bypasses rule 8.
I don't suppose you can skip the voting and just declare me the winner?:grin:
