    OK everyone, my chosen subject for the 7th Salon Challenge is "Lines". Lines can be straight, curved, parallel, covergent, divergent, random, they could be railway lines, fence lines, power lines, tree lines, mooring lines, even the Nazca lines if someone has access to a light aircraft (unlikely I know but I expect some of us would like to see the results of that trip). I'll close the challenge at 08:00 hours GMT on the morning of Monday 29th October which should give you all 3 weekends, hopefully that will be of some help to the weekday wage slaves amongst our number. Lets see you get straight to it, make a bee line for those cameras (sorry, dreadful puns but I couldn't resist).

    The normal rules apply:

    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, donĀ“t be shy...Participate and have fun!

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

    Enjoyable shooting everyone,
