    Hello stranger!
    Photos of people you don't know.

    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 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 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.

    Ideas for competitions you'd like to see? Submit them here

    Few years ago a friend of mine asked me to take pictures during his wedding party. No idea who it is, but you can see bride in the right upper corner :wink:

    I don't know these people, but they were still amused that I'm taking their picture. :)

    Taken last summer at a Starbucks in downtown Montreal. (I remembered having this image because of Marzena's. Of course hers is a far superior photograph. I just wanted to enter this one because I'm fond of it.)

    Oh, my goodness! That is so sweet.

    These are all such great photos with clever perspectives. Excellent contest theme idea!

    I knew her parents, and I knew her name, but I didn't know her at all. Hayley is my baby brother's only child and here she is as a baby. By the time she was 14-15 months old, she was already a character. We took her to see and feed the ducks at a local mill-pond this spring, and though she always says "quack, quack" when she sees a duck on TV or in one of her books, when the ducks swarmed her for food, she would say "woof, woof" and then turn and grin at us like she was making a joke. BTW, she has red hair and a temperament to match - when she wants to do something by herself, leave her alone so she can puzzle it out.
