The winner is GINA!
Thank you all, for participating. The judging category is officially over.(at least for now) I may post some ideas on our future challenges so we all can work on them through out the summer.
I will still post once or twice a month a challenge for that month's challenge. It will only be for FUN.
Thank you ROB, VICKI & BETTY for helping out.

I posted this in my journal (Visions by Vicki) and Marie suggested that I repost it here for all our photographers to see...so, here goes:
I've been a member of the Monmouth Camera Club, in NJ, for 2 years and have been involved in a number of "competitions." I'm still no expert, but have observed that some judges seem to follow what they believe are iron-clad rules of photography (Rule of Thirds, Leading Lines, etc.) in some cases, but don't apply these rules consistently. This angered and confused me a bit because they were being inconsistent and that didn't seem fair. Also, as far as I knew from all that I've read, these "Rules" are actually guidelines and NOT written in stone. I just read an article by one of the premier landscape photographers in the US--Alain Briot, Arts and Facts, The difference between judgments and opinions--and something clicked. It's definitely worth a read, so I suggest you go to his website and check it out. While you're there, browse through all his writings and photographs--he's really amazing! And...let me know what you think. :)
P.S. The original article referred to in this one was written for a different website, which I also highly recommend. The original article is titled Being an Artist.

Our June Photo challenge for FUN only, is The American Flag. Find a flag anywhere, on a flag post, a building, painted on something....or just the red, white & blue colors. You can even use a child's drawing as long as it has the red, white & blue colors. I want to decorate our Challenge Journal for July 4th, so I am planning to make a quilt of all entries. So the entry date will be different, it will start today & end on Monday the 23th of June. This will give you an extra weekend.
Try to make your image into a square, if you can.UPDATE: don't worry about the size, just post whatever image you have for this challenge. I see it's hard to crop/edit certain images into squares.
Post here in the comment section, all new entries. Try to follow guidelines...thanks~
