    Orange!

    This week, you have your own imagination in interpreting our theme. So use your creativity to choose a picture that can be suitably given the title of "Orange".

    Good luck!

    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. 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. 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.

    Zz.

    Although Orange is the national Dutch color, natural orange prevails:

    right click on the little red 'x', go to properties, copy the address (URL), and then paste it into the browser address window box----see if it comes it then

    One of the orange vases from the last PF gathering. Thank goodness the rules allow cropping! :biggrin:

    Yeah, I know it's not quite focused, but better than anything else I have. It wasn't intended to be the focus of the original photo.

    :rofl: Sorry...you should've known more than one person had photos of those. :biggrin: :tongue: My only other option was a photo of my cat getting into trouble, and she's only part orange, and now that she isn't a kitten anymore, I don't think she'd score as many cute points (besides, I think everyone has seen enough photos of her in contest threads :rolleyes:).

    The dang thing kept falling over. And it spun too easily, so you couldn't get the jar in with one hand. This was my favorite moment for that rack!

    When you're hunting during the firearms season for deer, you're legally required to be blindingly orange... Here is some of my hunting gear on the patio table.

    What's the closing date for this contest?

    I have an entry, but I'll wait and see if I can find anything less stupid than my current one to submit.
