    O' Christmas Tree, O' Christmas Tree

    It is that time of the year where evergreen trees are decorated and lit. Your photo for this contest must have, as the main subject, one or more christmas trees. The tree may or may not be decorated.

    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 grey 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.

    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 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.

    I'm surprised we're not getting a lot of entries on here.

    I need to scan all my old christmas photos in and my scanner is not connected anymore.

    I wish I had the picture of when the tree fell on top of me. I'm lying spread eagled on the floor completely covered by branches head to foot. :frown: You can see an arm sticking out from under the tree.

    I wasn't sure if I should use one of the pictures of the many Christmas trees I took in January at WDW, or use the picture of the Disney tree we have here at home... I end up using the picture of our 2nd tree out by the sitting room. So here it is... and it took only 2 days to decorate it.

    I don't know who took it. Spawn did have her Mutant Ninja Turtle camera back then. Yes, I have many pictures of me taken from a height of two feet pointing straight up my nose, lovely.

    I wish the 'christmas tree' of sorts I found in the middle of a windswept moorland hadn't already been entered for a competition..

    The deer-topper is a nice touch.

    I have to post a picture of my tree from last year, because this year's is pretty pathetic (it's only decorated in cheap plastic ornaments attached with twist ties that the cat is STILL getting off it :grumpy:).

    Okay, here's our tree from this year.
    (Ivan, please note the Joulupukki in its place of honor at the base of the tree.)
