Next week's photo assignment: Lowcountry Parks

By Michael Trotman: St. James Santee Episcopal The Chapel of Ease (Est.1706), McClellanville, SC.

We had a lot of newcomers this week - our first My Charleston week - and we had a lot of great photos.

Too many great photos, in fact, as many people sent several photos. Trust us, we know how hard it is to pick just one but we ask that you please only send in one photo per photographer, as the rule states.

It was especially difficult to pick this week as we had 38 individual entries. Our editors picked Michael Trotman's photo to run in Friday's edition of the People section. Pick up a copy of the newspaper Friday to read what the editors liked about it.

Next week's assignment: Lowcountry Parks. If you would like your photo to be eligible in My Charleston magazine, please include a line in your email saying so.

We have not chosen yet which pictures will run in My Charleston magazine. It will be a long process between now and when it's published in August but don't be surprised if you get an email from one of our editors asking you more about your photo.

The rules:

- Send just one (1) photograph to by noon on Tuesday, April 8. Include your name, town and where the photo was taken. If you send us multiple photos we will select one randomly.

- We will allow photographs with reasonable watermarks to run in the gallery but for the winning photo that runs in the newspaper we must have a photo that does not have a watermark. If you want to send us one with the watermark (to run online) and one without (to possibly run in the newspaper) please feel free.
