    PF PHOTO CONTEST Morning has broken (Mar 8 - Mar 15)



    Please post your best picture illustrating new beginnings.


    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.

    Weekend is approaching. Maybe a good time to check on new beginnings all around.

    I have some, but I started them from prunings a couple of weeks before Valentine's Day. They rooted nicely in the vase, so I have planted them in a clay pot, and they are putting out nice shoots and leaves.

    I plan to cut some branches this weekend and put them in water - Easter is coming.

    I am going for the literal interpretation, as for some reason lately I feel compelled to get out of bed in time to watch the sun rise on my days off.

    My neighbor has a Japanese fantail willow and forsythia bushes, and around the first of February he gave as a bunch of cuttings to brighten up the house. The forsythias were in full bloom with emerging leaves by Valentine's Day. The fantail willow branches are curved and flattened toward the ends and gave a nice artistic touch to the vase. Willows root very easily, and after they developed nice clusters of roots I put those cuttings in a pot with loam and potting soil. When it is warm enough for transplanting, I will replant them near my pond. I started a cutting the same way last winter, and it did well last summer. Many of the catkins have flowered and fallen off by now, but the new foliage is nice to have around.
