Main Question or Discussion Point

Let's Go Shopping!

This week, the theme is shopping, or more specifically, on merchandise and "atmosphere" that one can find in a shopping store, mall, or department store. These must be the main subject of your photo.

Zz.

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. 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.

Geez, they start Christmas shopping in June? I know it starts earlier and earlier, but didn't think it came to that. Sigh.

edward: clarification. Is the picture taken in a shopping establishment? The theme here is specifically on pictures of merchandise or atmosphere IN a shopping establishment.

OOPS : I didn't get past the word merchandise, sorry about that. Sometimes this place looks like a toy store.:smile:

I never actually do things like take pictures when shopping, so I've got nothing on this one.

You still have time to find a different picture.

Is this a limitative rule in concrete?

shopping store, mall, or department store
The best shopping pictures are made in the open. The title does not exclude the market, the fair etc?

Now that you mentioned it, I suppose outdoor markets would qualify. So farmer's market, etc. would be acceptable... However, it must focus on the market itself, or the merchandise being sold, not on the surrounding outdoor scenery.

Hum..... that gives me an idea for a picture submission.... :)

So when I arrived yesterday, at my German residence. I was totally surprised, the monthly market in front of my house. Nuisance for parking and luggage, but I turned it into positive and took out the camera and shot several dozens like this one.

I'd certainly be surprised if I came home to that, Andre. What amazing burst of colours!
