The Green, Green Grass Of Home

No, I'm not singing a Tom Jones tune, but that phrase makes for a perfect theme this week. Your photo must depict, as its main subject, a lush and green field of grass.


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 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 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[/QUOTE]

This is a tough one! This time of year, a photo of "grass" should be easier to get than a photo of grass....

Will "white, white snow of home" with an incorrect white balance do?

Home to these geese and their goslings is a lush field that surrounds a farm-pond. The adults are very alert and on guard. They had probably at least 10 goslings, but I never got to see more than a few at a time through this tall grass.

That farm-pond is just a few miles from here. It's a dairy farm and they manure their fields and hay them. The farmer is nice enough not to take early crops of hay off the field around the pond because it is wonderful cover for the geese. Once the little ones can fly, then he'll cut hay there.

Not home, not all that green and not such a good photo but I thought the sky, in parts, came out not all that bad as grey skies go.

All I know is, I see sunny skies and panoramic views. The pic I took was the first sunny day since early December, and the sun hasn't been back since.

Maybe I'll sacrifice some students....

Hmmm. I see the problem. You don't have to take your contest entry during the contest.
