    On A Clear Day, You Can See Forever

    You may interpret the theme any way you wish, but it must have a clear representation of the phrase "On a clear day, you can see forever".


    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.

    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

    A theme with a clear bias against Oregonians. :biggrin:

    Topher925, is that the great wall of china?? *raise white flag* Your photograph fits the title perfectly!

    khemist, awesome photo. Lolz is he talking on the cellphone? I don't know why I find that funny. I guess it's just a reminder how "busy" we are.

    Andy, love your picture!!! The sky is really clear. I've been trying to get a good picture of the sunset/sunrise, but have yet capture one I'm satisfy with. But this is gorgeous! I really like the color.

    Perfect water reflection of the boats and the sky, really looked like the boats were sitting on a mirrored surface.

    Yea he is on his cell phone. The funny part is that was probably the best photo of the day, and we were doing all kinds of skating shots.

    It just occurred to me that the only picture from Croatia I posted so far fits perfectly:

    uvala.jpg

    Main land (closing the view, behind the island on the left) is about 30 kilometers away. From a different point, and looking about 30 degrees to the left, you can look alongshore the Hvar - and the most distant points on the main land are about 45 kilometers away. That's quite often too far, and they are hidden behind fog/aerosols/contamination.

    I do apologize for the terrible quality, it was a 60 second exposure, on a stationary tripod.
