Main Question or Discussion Point

My Favorite Photo 2018

As we approach the end of another year, it is time to look back at all the photos that we have snapped this year. For this contest, choose one of the photos that you have taken in 2018 that is your favorite, and submit it to this contest.

Obviously, I will not be able to verify that the photo was taken in 2018, so I will have to trust you on this. But that's fine, because even though a few of you sometime forget about our contest rules, you can be trusted, can't you? Humm... ? :smile::-p

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 800 x 600 or 600 x 800 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. Alternatively, you may simply upload your image file to PF, and then have the full image displayed in your post.

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. The photo of the subject must be something that you took directly, not via in intermediary medium, and not taken by someone else. Unless otherwise noted, a photo of another photo, painting, print, etc. does not qualify.

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. Photos not meant for submission must not be posted in the contest thread. Posting of more than one photos by a member may result in an automatic disqualification from the week's contest.

Falls Park Panorama - small.jpg


This was actually my very first attempt at a panorama. IIRC it was inspired by the panorama contest thread last April, which had closed just a couple of days earlier so I couldn't submit it there. (full size version hosted off-forum)

This contest is over. Please check the dates in the topic.
Ok, I will wait for another contest.
But it's hard to understand what is deadline without timezone info. I looked into archive and it showed some posts after deadline date (I believe the dates I see are adjusted according to my timezone settings).

There is already another contest running right now.

But it's hard to understand what is deadline without timezone info. I looked into archive and it showed some posts after deadline date (I believe the dates I see are adjusted according to my timezone settings).
The deadline is in whatever timezone you are in. Even taking all time-zones into consideration, Dec. 29 is already way past the deadline in any time zone for the contest, which was on Dec. 28.
