    I Need Some Zzzzzzz's

    This week's contest is sponsored by the letter Z! Call it "zee" or "zed", it is my most favorite letter of the alphabet! Your picture this week must contain, as its main subject, something that begins with the letter "Z", as spelled in a standard English language dictionary. A proper name such as a person's name, does not qualify.

    Good luck!


    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. 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. 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.

    Zz.

    Oh sure, I'll just step outside and take a picture of a zebra. :biggrin:

    I wonder how many folks can find something that begins with Z, and not a person. I knew a Zelda once. She was really cute.

    Oh, geez, that's going to be a tough one! And when I saw the thread title, I expected it to be about things related to sleep.

    I like the eye detail and how it was staring at me..the only downside was the horns of a antelope in the way as the zebra was standing in the middle of the herd of them.

    ... but also more difficult. You've seen already people complaining about not having any zebras as a pet!

    :)

    I know I have a picture of the elusive ZapperZ around here. :biggrin:

    I actually probably do have a bad photo of a zebra somewhere too, but since there are already good zebra photos, no point in that. I think I need to consult the Z section of the dictionary for some more unusual ideas. :rolleyes:

    Well, after consulting the dictionary, I must conclude that I have
    Zip, zero, zilch!

    Edit: It was even more humorous that my first attempt to insert the image failed and just showed a broken link icon. :rofl: Not sure, maybe I should have just left that version up. :biggrin:
