    Have A Seat

    For this week's contest, we focus on one of the most common objects that we see everyday - a seat.

    Your photo must have, as its main subject, one or more chairs, benches, barstools, thrones, sofas, loveseat, wheelchairs.... anything that was designed specifically for people to sit on.


    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.

    I came across this creative sculpture (of a living room set?) on a Bike Medic shift at a Half Marathon near the San Leandro Marina. Pretty creative. :smile:

    @Andy Resnick : Is the statue, or where those people are, designed for specifically for people to sit on? In other words, is that where it is meant as a seat?

    That statue (at the National Academy of Science in Washing DC) has long been used as a seat. It's a common-enough occurrence that I thought my image would qualify. It's up to you.

    Unfortunately, if it wasn't designed as a seat, it doesn't qualify, even if it was used as such.

    What if the kids weren't there? I think that place was at least designed for Einstein to sit on.

    Then we are speculating. The briefing was clear:

    This was why I did not list fences, termite mounds, grass, kitchen tables, etc... even though people DO sit on those.

    Good point, but then what's your ruling about the post by @CAF123? Wasn't the depicted item designed to do something that only rhymes with "sit on"?

    The picture is depicting a toilet SEAT, is it not?

    I thought the stairs where indeed designed to have a seat.
    Yes, that's why I didn't post a V-ladder laying on the side or a box for beer bottles, although I'm sure they are far more often used as a seat than many chairs are.
