OCTOBER Photo Challenge - Comments & Notable Rejects

This thread is for any comments that you would like to make on the entries in the OCTOBER Photo Challenge submissions.

Additionally, if you have any other shots that you have taken on the subject that didn't quite "make the cut", but you still want to share with the IIS community, then, please, post them here too.

This month's Theme is ... "Golden Hour Activity" ...the period of the first and last hour of sunlight

This would have been my first pic...
nice clear belt of Venus, iconic setting...
but there is no "Activity",
(except maybe the rising moon)
so it didn't fit Suzy's brief.

Oh wow what a gorgeous photo, Allan! Would've been more awesome with a Kangaroo or a romantic couple embracing over a glass of wine. There in lies the challenge for "activity" .

I was thinking of putting this one in, which seems to fit the bill, but I thought with it taken in 2014, it may be a little outside the competition requests. So I decided to go with a more recent image, one that was taken in October.

I am having trouble seeing the "ACTIVITY" in some of the submissions.

I may have to rule some as ineligible.

Yea there plenty of those Whiss Bangs floating around the Country, mostly backpackers we have seen so many on our travels.

The company is Wicked Campers

They buy/hire them drive them into the ground and go home usually.

It was a wonder that that sentence was allowed for public viewing
