Back!

Baby, we're back!! Hopefully, this time, stronger than ever. So for our first theme, it will be just one word - "back"! Use your imagination and find your photos that can best represent the theme.


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

Zz.

Could also be titled "bareback". I just knew we'd be seeing this photo again. The lens flare and low-light colors are great.

My brother and his little girl in the spring of '09. We had just spent the better part of an hour feeding ducks at the mill-pond in the next town, and when a couple of passing cars dispersed the ducks, it was time for a piggy-back ride until the ducks came back for more food.

With a sly sense of humor, too. At the time, she knew all kinds of animal sounds, and whenever she would see a duck in one of her books or in a TV commercial (Aflac insurance uses a sassy duck as its "spokesperson"), she would say "quack-quack!". However, when ducks were mobbing her for bread crumbs and cereal and we would ask her what a duck says, she would say "Woof!" and then grin. Couldn't get a quack out of her all that time - she persisted in fooling us with her "Woof!" joke.

Marzena's birds are my favorite, so far, I laugh every time I look at the. I think I'll save my two-tone blonde rear end squirrel for another time.
