    Front And Back

    This week, you will be asked to post not just one, but TWO photos. One photo must show the front of something, while the second photo must show the back of that same something. So your photos will show the "front" and "back" of that subject. For a subject that does not have an obvious "front" or "back", you must show one side of the subject and the opposite side of the subject.

    Please ensure that both photos are submitted in just one single post made by you, i.e. both photos are included in one post and not multiple posts.


    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 did not take the picture IN the picture but I took the picture OF the picture so the pic I'm posting is mine :smile:

    The original pic is of the Jefferson Memorial after dark. Sadly, because of the reflections in the glass you can hardly make it out but what makes this shot great is the presence of a dim, slightly pinkish, full moon just above and to the left of the memorial.

    Just a reminder that you don't have to show both front and back in the same photo. You are allowed to include TWO separate photos in a single post.

    @Borek, clever photo choice, in my opinion!
