    PF Photo Contest Champions
    It has been exactly TWO YEARS since our weekly photo contest has started, and it comes the time to pit our best photos against each other in a single thread to celebrate and conclude. There is one week to select your best photo from any of the years' contests to see who are the PF Photo Contest Champions.

    For this special occasion, I think we can stretch the one-time submit rule. I am eager to see what will be judged the Physics Forums Photo Contest's best photo :smile:.

    All of the previous contests can be found in the PF Photo Contest Winners thread.

    Here's mine from "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" or some title like that. I think I only tied for third because I was new to Imageshack and it screwed it over when I told it to resize. Now that I see that most people just upload full size, thats what I did. Bite me for it like I know some smartass will.

    The Spurn lightship at night. Think this is one of my faves that I've entered.

    This contest will be brutal.

    Unfortunately most of my pictures were on a domain, which is gone now. But here is the last entry from "sick as a dog":

    The camera was on an equatorial mount with a clock drive mount and the shutter was held open with a remote shutter cable IIRC about 280 seconds.
