    When I open the Duck's link as a folder, the red and gold coupe is
    Image #1. When I single-click on that image, it opens full-screen.
    When I double-click, it opens #2. For some reason, I instinctively
    double-click. I think that's because my FastStone viewer requires a
    double-click to open an image to full-screen. That movement has
    become hard-wired, I guess.

    These are 2009 shots. While the CC allows any photo of any age to be
    entered, I try to use a recent shots in all competitions. Whenever
    possible, I'll shoot *for* the mandate because I think mandate
    competitions should encourage a person to look for shots, not trawl
    through their archives.

    For September, I'm using two January, 2013 shots because I didn't get
    out and look for the mandate.

    Number 34 has the two players up by the post, but the image needs
    straightening so the post doesn't tilt. #30 is intended to show the
    number of players in the scene.

    My Documentary leanings lead me to try to tell a story with a series,
    so I try to include establishing shots and detail close-ups along with
    action shots. I don't usually include text, as I have here, but it
    added to the story. Who would recognize the Duchess of York without
    it?

    Yup! By double clicking you are effectively clicking on the open image
    the second time, and that will move you to the second image. In the
    Dropbox viewer clicking on the image is another way to move to the next
    image in the series without moving to the navigation arrows.
    Right click on the image, and you get the option to download or view
    the original. That duplicates the "More Options" selection on the
    bottom right of the viewer window.

    Fair enough, but they are nice shots.

    At times I will just go throudh the archives to see if something appeals
    to me. Wvery so often something does.
    Our CC had only one mandate each year. this year we have two, but I am
    not entering the second. It is only for smart phones and all processing
    must be done within the phone. I simply am not interested, in that. Our
    other mandate, will be for our April competitions, the subject is
    reflections.

    fair enough.

    Snipping can destroy content, and the content of what you snipped was
    about my possible submission to competitions at my camera club.

    Snap! That's the mandate for the September competition that I'll be
    entering today.
