Please make the subject line of the email "October photo submissions for 2nd meeting". This will make it easier for Andre to identify the emails and ensure that your photos will be added.
Please note: If your photo is incorrectly labelled, or named, and there is no subject line for the email, or it is sent after the deadline it will not be shown.

If you miss the deadline for emailing, you can submit photos at the meeting. However, please be considerate and come early. Out of consideration to those who have submitted timeously, we will no longer be accepting submissions after 7PM, once the meeting begins.

2. Set Subject: Nature - Something smaller than your palm
(to be shown at second meeting, 18 October 2011)

For this Set Subject we want you to look closer at the natural world and find the beautiful detail that it contains. Your subject must be smaller than the palm of your hand.  Please avoid the usual flower and bee shot. Challenge yourself by looking for something different. But most of all "Have Fun"!!
