Round 2 OPEN!

Go for it!
I Will get to the new regos soon
DONT FORGET TO HIDE YOUR IMAGES (everyone did really well last round...)

And a reminder of another thread

In light of the DNQs for round 2 we are going to make it easy with these two points on how to avoid the DNQ:

*Step 1: read the theme Carefully and adhere to it.... Especially any thing that says Must or will have etc...

*Step 2: You can request that I present your entry to the mods for a "Spot ruling" on if the image fits into the theme. This means your image (but not your identity, it is given out to NO ONE until the close of voting) will be displayed to the mods and you will either get a rejection or an assurance. If you wish this to happen you must submit the image to the gallery and PM me NO LATER THAN 3 DAYS BEFORE THE GALLERY CLOSES

And make sure you leave enough time to reshoot if the descision comes into the negative

I wonder if there was a big spike in egg purchases over the last few weeks?

YOU ARE NEARLY OUT OF TIME
To register and/or request a spot ruling

A quick note:
"Registration is only open to members"
Does not mean you just have to have an account here
Read the FAQ with reguards to special access...

if "Member" does not apear below your avatar when you view your profile DO NOT SEND ME A REGISTRATION PM

Cheers!

Cock up's like that have been known to happen, and getting DNQ'd is enough to make anyone crack.
