A Piece of History -- HAF Photo Challenge Poll
« on: April 19, 2018, 08:31:11 PM »
Admittedly this has been a somewhat leisurely photo challenge as far as timing goes, but there have been reasons, and in fact entries arrived in the final days. This, in addition to the very welcome contributions from folks other than the "usual suspects", has resulted in the widest field of entries yet. Consequently, members will get a larger number of votes to dispose of than usual. Thank you to all the people who contributed images for this edition.  :)

Please PM me ASAP if I've missed any entries, or otherwise made a mistake in setting this poll.

Members may vote for up to eight (!) entries and can change their votes. Voting will close in two weeks.  8)

What a splendid entry But what a lot of work for recusant to do it for me.  Thankyou very much, greatly appreciated as I could never have  managed to do the poll  myself.  :)

Whoa, 42 photos? This poll has certainly exceeded expectations! :smilenod:

Great contributions, I agree it was difficult narrowing it down to only 8 favourites!
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

Love the wide selection of photos this time,...very cool that we have 42 submissions. Some great photos to choose from as well, going to be hard to make my selections.
This was a great theme!

By the way 21 has to be Tank when he was a little boy,...and who knew they had photography so long ago. ;D
I'm truly sorry, but I can't keep explaining this simple thing to you over and over again hoping that you'll finally understand something so simple and obvious.

It certainly attracted the highest turnout ever.

 :embarrassed: Eh, well, it appears that I've managed to win this one. #34 is the Torre de Belém (aka Tower of St Vincent or Belém Tower) in Lisbon. #10 is a pair of arches along the upper level of the Roman amphitheater in Arles. #18 is a lavoir in the style of the Second Empire at Maussane-les-Alpilles. I've become somewhat of an aficionado of French lavoirs, which vary widely in style from the rather grand, as this one is, to the very humble. #26 is a sadly neglected carriage (and therefore all the more picturesque, I thought) sitting in a field near the village of Tourtour in France. #42 is the Pont du Gard again, in the Occitanie region of southern France.

The selection of the entries for this photo challenge was particularly fine I thought, but maybe that's because I'm fascinated by history. It was great to see an entry from Harmonie--I hope that you'll contribute more! Also I really enjoyed the numismatic images from Bad Penny II, as well as the photos of Greek ruins from Guardian85 and hermes2015. The photo of the Sun Studio from Papasito Bruno is excellent, as are Dave's photos of the historic UK sites.

Thank you again to all who provided entries for this edition, and to everybody who voted.

The theme of the new challenge will be announced in its own thread.
