    PF Photo Contest - "A" is for .... August! (8/1-8/7)

    "A" is for ... August!

    It's the first day of August, and we will do a contest that salutes the first letter of the alphabet. Your picture must prominently feature something that begins with the letter "A". You may want to point it out in case that it is not obvious.

    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 grey 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 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. But other than that, 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. 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.

    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 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.

    That's my nephew when he was about 1 1/2 yrs old. He fell asleep on the dog bed (the "blanket" is the dog's towel), which was of course too cute to resist photographing before moving him to his own bed. For some reason, he's always completely tuckered out by the end of the day when his Auntie Moonbear visits. :biggrin:

    This isn't fair if everyone is going to be using the small child-cute card. Of course, it's fair if I find a picture of my son...

    A is for Acadia National Park. Here is a picture I took from the top of Cadillac Mountain looking down into Bar Harbor. There were 2 cruise ships in the harbor ferrying passengers into the town so they could buy overpriced trinkets from the natives. Unfortunately, since Maine is down-wind from the midwest smokestacks, the ozone level is usually quite high on summer days, and rarely do we get a nice clear day, thus the haze.
