    Six Feet Under

    OK, there are TWO issues to deal with here.

    1. After that very cheerful "Orange" contest, I have no idea how this is going to be received. The theme this week will be on photos of cemeteries, graveyards, etc. It's a bit morbid, but what they hey.... Note that "fake cemeteries", such as the graveyard scene at the entrance to the Haunted Mansion attraction at Disney theme parks, do not qualify.

    2. Starting with this contest onwards, minor modification of photos will be allowed. This is restricted only to brightness and contrast adjustments, in addition to the already-allowed resizing and cropping. No other modification to the picture is allowed. The new rules will now reflect this change.

    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 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 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. 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.

    I have a picture of my grandma's grave, and it's surroundings. I don't mind posting it. However, I'm thinking of editing out her last name. Would that be ok?

    I thought I wouldn't be submitting an entry for this contest, but it so happened that I was literally walking on graves this morning. Here's one that I didn't step on...

    Er.. please read Rule #9 of this contest!

    You are welcome to start your own thread to show your pictures, but for this thread, only pictures for this contest are allowed. Think of me when I have to sort out all of these when I have to do the polling!

    No, he's referring to your 3 photos. Which one is for the contest, if any? You can put the others in the Disqualified! thread if you'd like to share.

    This was taken at an old cemetery outside Jacksonville, OR. The grave markers are wood.

    Found along the banks of the Ohio river. The people in the town{Cave-in-Rock IL.} said, its the remains of a river priate{theif}..who was captured and killed by the early town folks. I did find the hint of a name on the bottom, which tended to make me think, it was just a early settler. The skull and cross bones was a very common motif around 1830's.

    I took this during the last Memorial Day weekend, at a Confederate cemetery in Fredricksburg, VA. We would have stayed for the lighting of the luminaries, if it wasn't as hot and humid as it was.

    Took a walk down to the cemetery this morning. It's a beautiful place and the light was just amazing for photos.
