    Weekly Challenge Apr 26 - May 03: Mayday / Distress

    "Mayday" - fortkentdad's Choice

    For what will be the first challenge in May, @Forkentdad decided a play on words for the widely known phrase "Mayday - Mayday!!" to set the tone. To answer the distress call, this is your chance to submit your best image that captures or portrays the idea of the subject (person or thing) is in distress. There's no expectation that the photographer needs to create a situation of distress for the subject, just capture an image that portrays the idea. Let's see how creative you can be! Color, B&W, HDR...anything goes!

    DO NOT SHOOT OR POST IMAGES UNTIL WEDNESDAY APR 26
    This early announcement of the topic is to give a little think time, before the challenge begins. Photos must be taken and submitted between 00:00 UTC of the start date and 00:00 UTC of the end date.



    The Rules

    1. Photos must be captured with a Nikon and appear in the thread with EXIF info in order to be considered for the challenge. If the forum EXIF viewer does not show for any reason, listing the camera and capture date/time below the photo is acceptable. Listing exposure info, lens & focal length is encouraged so others can learn.

    2. Any photo submitted for a weekly challenge must be taken during the dates specified in the challenge thread.

    3. Only one photo entry per member for each week, unless otherwise noted.

    4. All regularly active members of Nikonites are allowed to participate, including moderators and administrators.

    Voting

    During the submission & like periods, please click the Thanks/Like button to vote for your favorite images. You can vote for as many as you want! At the end of the week, you will have the opportunity to vote again for the top 3 photos for this challenge!

    There will be no cash or prizes awarded for the Weekly Photo Challenges, unless specifically noted by the site administrator.

    Any photo will be accepted for the challenge. Edited or straight out of the camera, it does not matter. You are left with complete freedom to do whatever genre of photography you wish to do, and your own interpretation of the challenge subject.

    Thought I had it covered - noticed half mast flags - but didn't have the camera with me - but by time I came back with the camera the flags were up again. It was in honour of the National Day of Mourning for workers who lost their lives on the job. ... teach me to keep the camera with me.

    Since this was my hairbrained challenge I thought I better offer something ...

    This would have been very distressing when it happened, now just another hunk of twisted metal.
