    MPC 175 - Winter Sports 2/1 - 3/5

    I guess I get a semi-happy feeling in pants as the 2nd place winner? Hey, I'll take it.

    We are going to do a hard reset on the MPC. No old topics are out of bounds going forwards. Just maybe browse through the last few to make sure we aren't repeating anything super recent.

    This contest is all about Winter Sports. I'm expecting lots of skiing and snowboarding shots, but if you are in a warm climate and getting out on your bike, or out hitting golf balls, or hiking with your pup, it's all fair game. If you are in the southern hemisphere, post up whatever sports you are doing at the moment as well.

    Given the quality of photos in the Go Forth and Ski/Bike threads, the "Powder Pole" thread, and the BBI going on as we speak, I know you all will kill it.

    I'll accept any photos taken within the month of February up through the end of the contest on March 5. It's been nuking all over the west so I know you all are holding!!

    RULES:

    1. Photos must be taken within the time period of the contest.
    2. You may submit 3 photos during the competition.
    3. The contest moderator will choose 5 (or 6) photos to be voted on.
    4. The winner will get a happy feeling in his/her pants. (That is a rule by the way, not an option.)
    5. In the event of a tie, the contest moderator will have the deciding vote.
    6. Winner will be the contest starter/moderator for the next comp.
    7. The winner has 3 days to start a new contest or 2nd place becomes the new winner.
    8. And have fun.

    A retroactive contest date... interesting.

    I'm not sure where we came out on the length of the contest, but maybe make this one a little longer? Til the end of March maybe?

    Thereís been so much good stoke here lately I would hate to miss it.

    If we donít have a ton of entries Iíll extend for sure. Hopefully a broad topic like this can be three weeks long. That way a new contest could be up for the middle of March.

    Great... just in time for me to go to Florida in a week!
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Young Men,

    I took this picture last week so I suppose it would qualify for this contest. My friend Robert Capa took much better photographs than me but he stepped on a mine in Indochina. If this photo is poor, remember the motto of my friend Robert. "If your pictures aren't good enough, you aren't close enough."

    Sadly, this bull died badly at the hands of Hemosa de Mendoza. We booed and whistled and I would have tossed my seat cushion into the ring if I didn't need it for seven more bulls. The borracho behind me yelled, "Use una pistola, sera mas rapido!"

    I have already forgotten the bull's name and had to look him up in my notebook. Alberti. He deserved a much better fate than a half dozen clumsy estocadas. But since he has already been defiled and disrespected I offer him here to TRG.

    My entries... taken yesterday at Silverton. Such an awesome mountain, but it's really hard to shoot there without a long lens due to the BC/guided skiing protocols. These were all taken with the Canon M50 and the 18-150 lens, the first two were cropped quite a bit due to the distance.

    Cheers!

    I updated this one, with a bit of a cheat... Photo-merge with a shot of the line from before the first drop-in.

    Not my best work, but an entry is an entry.
