    Neonwilderness, thanks for the new title, that should be popular. While I am here may I ask you to remove bullet-point 3 from your OP. We have now gone over to posting up the image not a link. Doing this will help when this month's winner copies your OP for the November competition.

    Er...silly question I think but how do I resize images so I can post them? The one I'm trying is 2.3mb/2448 × 2159...

    You need some photo editing software. I use a copy of Hornil Stylepix which is free to download. I usually reduce the vertical size to 700 pixels which fits a computer page well. My first entry this month was 800 pixels high due to some clumsy keyboard work.

    Photoshop Elements is also good value for money if you want lots of editing power.

    The image is of an AV installation by artist Doug Foster. Shot at the Minotaur exhibition in the Old Vic Tunnels, on a Ricoh GX100. 15 sec exposure, only post-processing was to up the contrast a tiny bit.
