    Welcome to the 21st serious compacts salon challenge..... your theme for the challenge is Eyes. Since the central subject in my winning image in the last challenge was my daughter's eye, I thought it would make a good theme for our salon challenge. Significant other, spouse, pet, old, young, let's see (pun intended) your best where eyes really make the image.

    The salon starts today Nov. 19th and shall run for 2 weeks, ending on Dec. 3th

    Rules are simple................

    1. Either take a picture that matches the nominated theme or select one from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the picture in order to enter it.

    2. There are several ways to add your photos to the current salon thread: 1. upload your entry to your SC user gallery (all entries must be present in an SC gallery), which you automatically get if you are registered on the SC forum, so if you aren`t registered you will need to if you would like to join the fun. (Don't know about the "gallery" yet? Then read this: SC Gallery FAQ please read it carefully if you are new to using the site's software.) 2. embed from Flickr or another similar web hosting photo site and 3. use the attachment method. All three are explained here:How to post images in forum threads

    3. Only one entry per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that is OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement picture that this is what you've done. You can add or change the title and add to the edit line to let everyone know.

    4. The decision of the curator at the end of the challenge is final - don't give him/her a hard time about it: this is just a friendly photo challenge, after all!

    5. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator for the next Salon Challenge and as soon as possible post a message in a new thread in the SC Photo Challenges forum, with details of the new theme. Don't forget - that opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

    6. The curator can't enter his or her own salon.

    7. Please, don´t be shy...Participate and have fun!

    8. Each salon should be open for about two weeks.

    In your eyes

    Don't see too many submissions in this one, so taking a stab here.

    One from this weekend - even though the eyes aren't the main subject, for this is ALL about the eyes.

    First dance, lost in each others eyes:

  11. Elk eye

    I'm a little short on eyes, or rather, photographs of eyes, lately. But this photo was taken several weeks ago at a celebrations of a 50th Wedding Anniversary, which was hosted at a traditional Elks Club. And one of the things traditional Elks Clubs have in them, apparently, is....an elk.

    I spent some time looking at this one. He had a certain patience and nobility, standing quietly, surrounded by laughing celebrants. And he always seemed to be surveying things....and when I came near, looking back at me.

    Marcel Proust wrote, “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” I think that's especially true for photographers.

  19. While not a close up, I just love the expression of a husband as he looks on his wives first horseback ride.
