    Dur dur d'être bébé

    Alright, crank up the cuteness factor!

    This week, it is all about baby pictures! While it may be "tough to be a baby", he/she is still adorable. So let's see those baby photos and be prepared to go "Awwww......"

    BTW, if you are nor familiar with the theme today, google that tune by Jordy.

    Zz.

    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. 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. 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.

    Zz.

    @OmCheeto - sweet! Interesting crop... Avante-garde presentation, or maybe you just had this in a collage?

    I have absolutely no clue why it's cropped that way.
    I bought a negative scanner about 2 weeks ago, and should have rescanned it.
    But I looked at my 3 shoe boxes of photos and negatives, and said, no.
    I think I'm a tad burned out.

    @OmCheeto - Awwwww!! :)

    @ZapperZ It can't be your baby picture because you couldn't have taken it right?

    Correct. Unless you had the ability to do a selfie at that age, there's a strong possibility that a baby picture of you was taken by someone else and does not qualify for this contest.

    Typical of me - instead of going for the cutest I have, I went for the most fitting the subject.

    Yes. I'm familiar with the rule.

    I'm just glad, that you're no longer staff...

    (not really. I always admired you)

    Then It puzzles me why you chose to ignore it.

    Right now, you have two photos in this thread. Have you decided which one you are submitting for the contest?

    The first one, per the rules.
    But if you decipher the url's of the images I posted, and see what I attempted to do, you might understand my attempt at humor.
    I think it would have worked with the old forum software, but not the new.
    Which is kind of a relief, as I had to bump my ISP capacity up last year, due to the number of pictures I was posting at this forum.
    hmmm.... I'll have to send Greg a PM to see if I can delete all of those images now. $5/month over 20 years, adds up.

    This might be a difficult one to vote on since the cuteness factor has been cranked way up!

    Please vote for the photo that best represents our theme.
