    {Administrative Note: I'm about 5 hours away from flying off for my vacation. So the contest this week will run for 2 weeks instead of just 1.}

    Bring Me A Flower

    Flowers have been a very popular contest theme. We have had many glorious photos over the years whenever we touched on this topic. So why not do it again now, especially when a lot of things are blooming in the Northern Hemisphere.

    However, for this topic, notice the singular name in the title. Your photo must have, as its main subject, ONLY ONE FLOWER! In fact, there must not be any other flower anywhere in the photo, not even an unfocused petal in the background. So not even parts of other flowers can be in the photo.

    Good luck!

    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.

    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.

    I have a freak twin eggplant bloom, but wasn't sure if you would disqualify it, so I decided to post this instead.

    Technically not a flower (up to Zz to decide).

    It's a flower that's gone to seed, so maybe, looks cool.

    I have no problem with the fact it is not a flower, close enough. It was just my first thought when I saw the picture.

    Tom, You might want to re-read the rules. Zz will be the judge. Just a heads up. Beautiful picture though. We used to have an alternative picture thread for photos that didn't qualify.

    Unfortunately, this photo does not qualify. There are more than one single flower in the photo.

    Please verify if this photo has been modified. Per our photo contest rules, anything other than resizing and cropping is not allowed.

    Hmmm i'm perhaps too literal.

    So far i'm the only entrant to incorporate the transitive active verb 'Bring" from thread title.
