Hey Mi Fans!

Greetings photographers! Once again, it's competition time my friends! The competition will be run a little differently this month and will work like this: Firstly, add your photograph in the comments section of this thread, keeping in mind the details of this months theme, if any. Please be sure to include accompanying information with your photograph. Entrants will have the whole of August to add their photo. After this, I will choose a maximum of 6 photographs, and will publish a second thread with details of the finalists, along with a poll for members to vote for their favourite. The poll will be open for 2 weeks. The photograph that receives the most votes will win.

What is this month's theme?

Again, this competition will run just a little differently. Many people will be on holiday this month, and even us moderators need a holiday occasionally. So, normally, entries can be made for 2 weeks and then the voting takes place for a week. However, this time, entries can be made during the whole of August. Then, voting will take place over a 2 week period. The next competition will return to normal. Anyway,

The theme for the August/September 2019 competition will be


Take your best shot of whatever you do in Summertime. It could be a beach or a barbeque. Whatever it is, make sure that nobody is in any doubt that you are photographing SUMMER.

The rules for the competition are the same as last month, and can be seen below

    3. For obvious reasons, we would much prefer that photographs are taken with a Xiaomi phone, but in any case, all entries must be original, unpublished and free from any copyright infringements.

Summer is about long days in the sun and longer evenings by the sea, with a pint in hand of course. This is Porthleven harbour, taken last year with my Mi A2 in auto mode (f/1.8 1/17 4.07mm ISO2000) with only the slightest edit in Snapseed to add a faint vignette & bring the colour of the lights out a little more.
