<center> <table width="855" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tbody><tr> <td>September's Photo Contest theme is "Expressive hands and/or Feet".

Some examples of this month's theme could be; a parent with one hand on her hip and the other pointing "no no" to her child, or a person with their hands stretched out begging for food, or a skater pointing his foot in the air in a striking pose, a child wiping a tear from his eye or someone someone teaching him how to tie his shoes.
Here (http://scenicphotos4u.smugmug.com/gallery/5820594_eX6vx) are a few samples (I removed most of the faces in some for obvious reasons).

This could prove to be challenging. For instance, someone washing dishes is a basic chore, but they could be wiping their forehead with a very tired expression on their face. If the viewer can see there is an obvious emotion or expression connected with someone doing basic every day chores or work related jobs, then that would qualify.

This is another chance to use your imagination and be creative!

The contest runs from the 1st - 3oth, and is closed out the following day to allow for any entries taken during the 3oth.

Please reduce your entry to 800 pixels in width.
The Album is located here - http://43photo.smugmug.com/gallery/5864484_GqrEU
Log in using this Username: 43photo and Password: express.
If you have a smugmug account, please log out, then in again with the above username/password.

The photo must be taken in the month of the contest. You are allowed to submit one (1) photo. You can resubmit another one, but be sure to include your username again and PM me so I can remove the one previously submitted. Some have expressed wanting to wait until the end of the month to submit theirs and that is fine.

It would be nice if your entry has a title. Please make sure the exif info is attached to the photo. If you need help with that, PM me.
It must also be from a 4/3 SLR camera, which includes (but not limited to) the Olympus E-3, E-1, E-300, E-330, E-400, E-410, E-420, E-500, E-510, E-520, Panasonic L-1, L-10, etc.

The entries will be judged according to these criteria:

Subject: Does the subject fit the theme?



Creativity: How effectively/dramatically/interestingly is the subject presented?



Composition: Has the subject been composed appropriately/interestingly?



Lighting: Has lighting been used appropriately/effectively for the subject?



Technical: Has the subject been exposed, focussed, etc appropriately/correctly?

1st place and 2nd place winners will each have a choice of one of the prizes below.
There will also be two who place 3rd and 4th, and they will have a chance at the end of the year for the Photographer of the Year.

Howdy,
Added a photo to the gallery, lost the exif somewhere. Can you pull it and I'll try it again? or is there a better way?
Thanks

They put their user name in the key words. The first belongs to halfwright and the second is bonanno. They also have it in the file name as well.
