    Blue

    For this contest, the theme is the color blue. Your photo must have, as its dominant color, the color blue.

    While there are variations to this color, and the possibility that different screens may display color slightly differently, please ensure that there is no ambiguity in the color (i.e. it does not verge into purple, for example).

    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 800 x 600 or 600 x 800 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. Alternatively, you may simply upload your image file to PF, and then have the full image displayed in your post.

    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. The photo of the subject must be something that you took directly, not via in intermediary medium, and not taken by someone else. Unless otherwise noted, a photo of another photo, painting, print, etc. does not qualify.

    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. Photos not meant for submission must not be posted in the contest thread. Posting of more than one photos by a member may result in an automatic disqualification from the week's contest.

    This photo has been taken in Arunachal Pradesh, India. Arunachal is one of our favourite regions for a tour, because of its wild beauty. Not many people visit this state because of a number of reasons. So, Nature is not quite nurtured here by man, and that's primarily why we love Arunachal. Check out the travelogue here (links in the first post will take you to the consequent posts).

    Final day to submit your photo for this contest. Do it now, or you’ll be blue.

    For a moment there I thought I had to do some vertical and horizontal adjustments on my screen!

    That's really quite disturbing to look at...

    Where is it? I'd like to know where to avoid. o0)

    To tell the truth I don't know now, I think it is metal.

    I don't know where you can not-see it now, it's moving quite fast isn't it?

    In August 2013 I photographed it in a somewhat secluded part of the grounds and gardens of Hatfield House (easy and worthwhile day excursion from London) home of the key powerful and sinister Elizabethan statesman, Robert Cecil, Earl of Essex - photo below, not part of competition, may jog your memory. I had quite forgotten it and only found it yesterday when searching for something else blue from around that time. Possibly has its maximum effect when photographed.

    It's stainless steel. After a bit of search, I found out that the artist is Xavier Veilhan (French) and he seems to have made a few carriages and other sculptures in this style.
