The new subject is Time.


For those who are new to the D-Lux 4 challenge, photos must be taken with a Leica D-Lux 4 or its sister camera the Panasonic DMC LX-3. The rules are set out below:


The "Time" Challenge dates are as follows:


Image Capture:September 16, 2009 to September 30, 2009.

Image Posting: October 1, 2009 to October 7, 2009

Image Voting: October 8, 2009 to October 14, 2009



I shall start separate threads for posting and voting so please do NOT post images or vote in this thread or they will be invalidated.


Above all, please enjoy yourself during the challenge, and if you've never posted an image before please do so because there's no criticism here and you might surprise yourself and us and win!


Looking forward to a lot of entries, have fun!






D-Lux 4 Challenge Rules:




The D-Lux 4 Challenge is an occasional competition on the Leica User Forum to celebrate and encourage use of the D-Lux 4 and Panasonic LX 3.


This is a test of the skill of photographers worldwide using the same basic camera and getting the best from it. It is open to all Leica User Forum members who own or have use of a Leica D-Lux 4 or Panasonic LX 3.


Shooting theme and period:


In order to participate you should shoot no more than 36 exposures (on a trust basis) using a Leica D-Lux 4 or Panasonic LX-3 camera, in line with a notified theme within a defined seven to fourteen day period (set by the person setting the theme).


Post processing:


All images entered must adhere to Leica User Forum posting rules on dimensions and file size.


Participants are encouraged to pre-visualize and preset their cameras and enter an image with the minimum of post processing. Extensive post processing (beyond levels and sharpening) is not within the spirit of the competition. It is not banned, but should be declared at time of posting. Ultimately, the best photographer should win, not the most adept post processor.


Entering your image:


Select your shot that in your view best matches the theme and post it onto a single thread set up for the purpose by the organizer.


Please give it a title.


The thread will be open for postings ONLY but NOT for voting until a declared date to allow all entries to be posted before voting starts. Your entries are not anonymous - feel free to include a short description of/explanation of your image.




Voting will then be opened. Votes may then be cast on the following basis:


Three points for best, two points for second and one point for third, in the format:


  • Image XXXX - 3 points
  • Image YYYY - 2 points
  • Image ZZZZ - 1 point



You MUST cast three votes in total - one or two votes will be regarded as a "spoiled ballot" and not counted in the overall total.


Voting runs for two weeks. One vote per member, no voting for your own image.


The winner gets the right to set the theme for the next D Lux Challenge.
