WE JUST love look­ing at pho­tos here at the Ru­ral Weekly. And who can blame us?

Coun­try peo­ple are a good-look­ing bunch and our farm­ing land­scapes make the perfect back­drop for am­a­teur and pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­phers alike.

And, if you throw in big-eared poddy calves, rus­tic (or shiny and new) ma­chin­ery and hard-work­ing, yet cute, bush kids you have a recipe for a great shot.

The Bush Ban­ter page gives ev­ery­one the chance to have their best ru­ral pho­tos pub­lished - so, send them in!

But, be­fore you do so, please help us out by fol­low­ing a few sim­ple steps that make print­ing your photo a breeze for us.

■ For re­pub­li­ca­tion, size does mat­ter. Please en­sure all pho­tos are emailed in a jpg for­mat as the full-size im­age. We rec­om­mend pic­tures to be sent through that are more than 1MB in size. If your com­puter, or smart­phone, gives you an op­tion on what size you can send the im­age, please chose the big­gest op­tion. Don’t worry about our com­put­ers not be­ing able to han­dle large files – it’s the big­ger the bet­ter on our end. If your photo does ap­pear to be on the small size, send it through any­way and we will let you know if our de­sign team can make it work.

■ Names are es­sen­tial. As a policy, we need to run full names for ev­ery person that’s printed in an im­age. While first and last names for peo­ple are es­sen­tial, we also like read­ing the names for horses, cat­tle, dogs and any other an­i­mal that might be in the shot.

■ Let us know where the ac­tion took place. Please in­clude the name of the pho­tog­ra­pher and time and place the im­age was shot. The more de­tail, the bet­ter. If it was a hot day, let us know the de­grees, if it was dur­ing a storm, let us know how much rain you re­ceived. That’s it!

Now all you have to do is get snap­ping and email your best shots to an­[email protected] ru­ral­weekly.com.au. And, if you get stuck, give me a bell on 07 3327 3413. I am not a tech ex­pert but will do my best to help you out – I love a chat as much as look­ing at your coun­try snaps.

❝hard­work­ing, Throw in... yet cute, bush kids you have a recipe for a great shot.
