Disqualified in the photo contest

    I keep finding I want to share other photos that keep within the themes of the photo contest threads, but would be disqualified, either because someone else took them, or I already submitted one but have others that fit the theme I want to share, or I've previously touched up the photos with some editing software, etc. So, I thought I'd create a thread for sharing those.

    A few rules (for those participating in the photo contest thread, some of these will look familiar):

    - Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack. Then to post it here link your picture using the img command. (Do not attach the image to the post...link to it on a server intended for the purpose of sharing photos.)

    - Limit the size of your photos to a width no greater than 650 pixels (this will avoid annoyingly stretching this page).

    - Use only photos you personally own, not ones you've downloaded off the web or that have any copyright restrictions on them. For this thread, it's okay if your parents or significant other or friend, etc., took the photo, as long as they have given you permission to use it.

    To keep this thread from getting too huge too quickly, let's keep the photos within the themes of the contest threads (past themes are okay). So, if you have something that fits those themes, and you're dying to share it, but would be disqualified for entering it in the contest, let's see it!

    Okay, to start off, here's the other photo I wanted to enter in the You're So Cold contest (I couldn't decide between two). Don't tell me if you like this one better than the one I entered, or I'll have to kick myself for choosing the wrong one. :biggrin:

    I missed the deadline for the "What's New Pussycat?" contest, so here's one of my cats (actually I guess it is technically my wife's cat -- the cat loves her, but never wants anything to do with me):

    I said that the one you chose was good because it had a llama in it:confused:

    I always forget that you have to take the picture. One of my friend's mom gave this one to me.

    A is for Athleticism

    Actually, after looking at it, I could have also submitted this to this week's Cold theme. That umpire looks like an ice cube! (or an assassin :uhh: )...

    Oh, it's a shame you missed the deadline! I'd have voted for that one. What a fantastic photo and such big, sweet looking eyes on that cat.

    Scorpa, I really like that Alumni Walk photo...it looks like a very quiet, relaxing place to sit on the wall and read or study.

    And...:rofl: at the Assassin at the Athletic event!

    Y'know, sooner or later, I'll run out of topics/themes, and I'll start recycling the old themes, which means that you might still be able to use the pictures that you couldn't in the earlier contests.

    So do you really want to reveal your pictures now and lessen the impact?

    :)

    Marlon, that kitty is adorable so I hope you'll take the time to follow this rule so you can share it with others:
    The member photo thread alreay puts quite a burden on the site, so I don't want to add to it with a big thread of fun photos when there are sites available that permit free sharing of photos with hotlinks in forums.

    As for you, Zz, I'll take my chances. :tongue: Others can decide for themselves if they might want to use the photo in another contest, but since the topic here is "disqualified," not all of these would be suitable for future contests either. Besides, if you do S is for September, I can always get more sheep pictures. :biggrin:
