PF Photo Contest - A Penny Saved Is A Penny Earned (1/21-1/27)
 
A Penny Saved Is A Penny Earned

This is a popular proverb that means that saving money is equivalent to earning it. This week's contest will have this theme. Based on your understanding of this phrase, you must to interpret it in your photos.

Good luck!

Zz.

Contest Rules:

1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 800 x 600 or 600 x 800 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread. Photos not meant for submission must not be posted in the contest thread. Posting of more than one photos by a member may result in an automatic disqualification from the week's contest.

For the non-US folks, there's some satire here:

The US tax system does not treat the pennies equally: I owe the government $0.0015 for the saved penny, but $0.0035 for the earned penny. The tax system is anti-jobs.....

(and yes, these are not real pennies.. or dimes!)

I guess about every home in Europe has a forgotten jar like this. Now we are just wondering whether these drachmas, lire, pesetas, francs and pfennigs might turn out useful after all.

Dr. Transport,

You must use one of the photo server and use the IMG. function to display your photo. We cannot accept attached photos.
