    Happy New Year!

    Our contest this week will straddle into the new year, so what better theme can we have at this time? To celebrate the year 2007, our contest this week will involve anything to do with the Number 7. It could be a picture of a building that has only 7 floors, or a large number 7 painted on street signs, or a picture of seven swans-a-swimming, etc... Use your imagination. However, be sure that the connection to the "7" is clear and is the main subject of the picture.

    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 grey 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 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. But other than that, 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. 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.

    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 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.

    Zz.

    What, nobody has any pictures of something related to the number 7? Are you going to let SpaceTiger and larkspur win this by default??!!

    I thought I didn't have a picture for this contest, but then I found this. Here are the seven dwarfs! :)

    Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, it's off to work we go....

    I didn't have anything that suited the theme, so had to stage a photo just for it...and I can't believe the action shot I got! Some of the others I just took were in crisper focus, but this was the most fun.

    Yay! Seven Toy Mice!

    I could've had more fun cropping out the feather lure (it's her absolute favorite toy, so easy to get her into the shot with it). I had to hunt all over the house to round up those mice though, which begs the question...where are the other gazillion of them hiding? (Note that the gray mice sort of blend in with the carpet in the background - there are two of those in the picture if you can't see them to count them.)

    Oy vey!

    You are right, Gokul. That is a very, very far stretch!! :)

    I like the story, but I think this picture is a very, very distant cousin of the theme we have for this contest. So I'm afraid it doesn't qualify.

    You can hardly blame him. He spent last night alone in the lab, so desperate for a beer he'd wear a princess tiara, and with nothing for company but Ivan's groaners. He's obviously in sore need of amusement. :rofl:
