    Red, Red Wine

    The contest this week is brought to you by the color RED. Your photo must have, as its main subject, the color red.

    While there are many variation to this color (and people's displays can vary quite a bit), the color should clearly be red and not pink or orange or purple.

    Good luck!

    Zz.

    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. 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.

    I know it's not original but I don't have beautiful pictures of flowers, sunset nor do I have a red laser pointer.
    It's the word that appear in ZZ's post of this thread as seen by my camera. I realize that my camera has a better resolution than my eyes for macro things. I almost can't notice the tricolor pixels on my screen with my own eyes, maybe a bare blue and red on edges but that's about it.

    A picture of my girlfriend's doodling. It features red AND yellow. It's the Firebird from Stravinsky's Firebird Suite "Жар-птица" (Fire bird in Russian).

    I hope I re-sized it to 800x600 correctly.

    Beautiful last 2 pictures...
    To tell you the truth Andre I was imagining that one of your insect had red eyes. What I had not imagined is that its body would be also red!
