We at the #The-Yard-Collective crew are happy to bring you the second round of features to our LightHouse gallery!
As a quick reminder, every month a group of three of our moderators, *DougNZ , *MARX77 and ~kingmouf will pick a number of notable photos from Yard’s galleries and propose them to all moderators. After a voting process, the top three photos will be featured in the LightHouse Gallery. For reasons related to our real lives, it took us a while to make the second feature, but we hope that we’ll be able to deliver features in a more timely fashion from now on! Also, for this month *MARX77 has been replaced *PEN-at-Work .
The following photos will now be featured in our LightHouse Gallery (photos are presented in no particular order):

Dear Street Photography afficionados,
We at the #The-Yard-Collective are happy to introduce you our new gallery: The LightHouse!
Every month a group of three of our moderators, *DougNZ, ~MARX77 and ~kingmouf will pick a number of notable photos from Yard’s galleries and propose them to all moderators. After a voting process, the top three photos will be featured in the LightHouse Gallery.
After the selection process, we will present those photos with a comment from the gallery’s curators.
So ‘nough with the talking and let’s present you the first.. four… selections for the gallery! A tie in the voting process forced us to accept more photos this time. The photos will be presented in no particular order.
THE WINNER IS *myraincheck - MARY CIMETTA!
A big congrats to Mary! Her winning image outperformed the rest of the competition and was by far the most popular amongst the judges. A more deserving winner is hard to think of since she always delivers as a street photographer. Her images are often ones that will require you to look at it for a while before your brain sees that extra dimension that she so often adds to her images.
Please take the time to congratulate her in a proper manner! Other than this feature she has won a Print of her winning image together with a winners certificate with a judges motivation and a a year of dA premium membership subscription.
(The runner ups will soon be notified and they will be featured in the next journal/blog entry.)

Her winning entry, image #48 in the Yard Shed Collection [link]
Like one of the judges, Nick Turpin, said: ”This is a classic street photograph, something extremely simple and everyday that has been elevated by the act of photography into something surreal and ambiguous. There is the implication of a little narrative here, what is the relationship between the man and the boys if any? What are they doing?”
AUGUST 12, 2011:
Plimsoll Line* – The name of a special marking, also known as the national Load Line or waterline, to be positioned amidships, that indicates the draft of the ship and the legal limit to which a ship may be loaded for specific water types and temperatures. The purpose of a Plimsoll Line is to ensure that a ship isn’t overloaded and has sufficient freeboard and thus sufficient reserve buoyancy.
To make up for time lost in drydock our beloved craft is now loaded beyond reason. Two galleries, not one, will be featured as well as a new Photojazz Five, by the Taiwan based American Brian Webb `bQw. This time he is featuring the Portuguese architect and photographer José Calheiros. *JACAC. Today we will also award someone special a Veteran’s Award Badge.
