    Make me smile

    The challenge this week is to make me (and the voters) smile. Votes should go to the one(s) that made you smile the most. No other restrictions on subject.

    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.

    LOL, no; no teeth.

    He showed up here as a stray in really bad shape. He recovered nicely and is a very happy cat, but we had to have all of his teeth pulled.

    I shot this with my 100-400 zoom. The siblings were well out of my reach, but still nervous - not nervous enough to run away and miss out on all the seeds under the bird feeder, though.

    I stumbled upon this little nest of trolls in the back end of a cave I was exploring. Found about 25 of them scattered around in various nooks and crannies :rofl:

    Sorry Turbo, but you've already entered this one before. It won Animal Instinct a while back.
    Feel free to submit another.

    Oh, Sorry! I didn't have a down-sized version on my PC or on Photobucket. My bad!

    Here is my niece, Hayley. I called her name and shot her in burst mode as she turned to look at me, and managed to get a cute googly-eyes shot. Burst mode is very handy for shooting kids, animals, and other active critters.

    Or maybe they do, but they choose to ignore it. Why? Because they can get away with it. :)
