    Give us your best juxtapositions.

    1. an act or instance of placing close together or side by side, especially for comparison or contrast.
    2. the state of being close together or side by side.
    The photo must still be interesting to look at and well composed.

    Starts 00:01 16th July (any posts before that will be ignored).
    Ends 23:59 16th August (any posts after that will be ignored).

    You may post one or two photographs. If you post one, it can be an archive shot or shot between the two competiton dates. You should state if it's Archive or New. If you post two shots, one must be an archive shot and one must be a new shot.

    You don't have to enter both an archive and a current shot, you can choose to enter only an archive shot, only a current shot, or both an archive and current shot. Your choice. But you must identify which is new and which is archive.

    The last photograph in each category (archive / new) for each person will be used, so if you enter multiple times, make sure your last shots are the ones you care about. i.e. only your last posted shot in each category (archive / new) will be counted.

    There will be two winning images, one archive and one new. All judging is by me. Judging is final. There is no prize.

    I am assuming that each entry has to be a single image and not a montage of two (or more) separate exposures. Is that the case?

    Many thanks

    Each entry should be a single cohesive image, but I guess I'm open to that being multiple exposures (i.e. I'm not sure two images stuck next to each other would count, but two images blended over each other in a way which delivers a single resulting picture might be okay). Sorry if that's vague or no help?

    I've reported this to get it moved to the other forum, but I guess mods are busy atm, hopefully it'll get moved in time for the start of the comp :) Otherwise feel free to just post here (obviously)

    The thing about Staines is that the High Street is old (though they keep pulling bits down and chucking up modern stuff) so you are guaranteed the odd old/new juxtaposition.

    So you can only enter 1 archive shot and 1 new shot. The rules say I'll accept the last shot of each type, so just to confirm, Old and New 2 is your entry for the comp in the archive category?

    So this is archive. The old lion:

    I thought it was post as many as you like (within reason!) but only the last of each (New and Archive) counted?
    Anyway, O&N 2 is the last of the two, so it is my archive entry. That OK?

    It's not so much post as many as you like, it's more, if you post one and then find a better one later, you're not out of luck. The monthly theme gets hundreds of entries, and I was trying to create something different alongside that, rather that just create another place for people to post 10's or 20's of shots.
