Happy

This week's theme should be very easy. Post a photo that makes YOU happy.

Note that this is not a photo on "happiness", i.e. the photo need not convey the sense of happiness. Rather, this is a highly-personal reaction of happiness from you when you look at the photo that you submit.

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.

Zz.

Not knowing who people are in the photo, I want to confirm with you that YOU took this photo, correct?

Then, unfortunately, the photo does not qualify, per our standard rules.

As a reminder to all participants, the photo contest is of photos that you took, not taken by someone else.

Yes, but only the post with the photo, because I don't want to get confused later on when I make the polling thread. The rest of the discussion should stay just as a reminder of our contest rules.

I was trying to take a scenic picture in Hawaii when my better half decided to improve the picture.

Family camping in Modoc National Forest many years ago (when the kids were about 10-12 years old). The memories always make me smile :biggrin:

On my morning walks, almost all the neighborhood cats either ignore me or run away from me. This is the only one that comes out to the street to greet me, so I'm always happy to see it!

I hope nobody tries to use that stuff for salad dressing! ?:)

(thinking of those kids who eat laundry-detergent pods)
