    Sick as a Dog
    Sorry to everybody for bombing my first photo contest, maybe this one will be simpler.

    I've been quite sick recently, what is something that helps you feel better when you are sick? Submit your photo to the PF Photo Contest! :biggrin:

    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. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. Any other form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a special effect contest.

    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.

    Aww...well, perhaps everyone at least gained an appreciation for how difficult it really is to come up with themes every week.

    Ooh, this sounds like an interesting theme that could inspire quite a variety of photos. I'm looking forward to the entries (and will have to see if I can put one together too...there's certainly a good chance I can get a photo for this one if I don't get distracted from it).

    One of the things I hate most about being ill is being cooped up inside for a long time, so what really helps me feel better is fresh air and sunshine.
