    Alphabetical order
    Person one posts something beginning with A, person two posts something beginning with B, then C and so on and so forth.

    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.

    Acidic solution and alkalic solution :smile:

    These were prepared for this pH indicators page. Thanks to Marzena for the idea of using this picture. I was thinking about something like "a boy" or "a flower", but was afraid it won't be acepted :wink:

    c is for the speed of light. Light travels from the laser pointer to the red dot on the wall at speed c, and the lightcones on the book's cover indicate speed c near a rotating black hole.

    Better hurry! By the time you decide you may have to regroup and go for fingers or guppies or horses.

    What a great theme! And challenging to get just the right timing to post a photo to fit the right letter.

    Yup. I was hoping to get G but I missed it completely! I'll settle for I, which is for infrared

    This shot is taken with a filter over the lens which removes all but the furthest red reaches of the visble spectrum. Most of what reaches the sensor is near infra-red.
