Main Question or Discussion Point

Something different

Let's see your creative side. What do you consider your most different, unusual or original photographs?.

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. 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

I think I know what that is, but I agree, another vote.
And a big plus is that the kids can't make jokes about some nice girl from Dallas and your photo :rolleyes:.

:rofl: Looks awfully pink for a black hole. :biggrin:

I really like your photo though. A sprinkler in the shower is definitely different!

mmmmm, is it the inside of a vase turbo-1??
You got it! It's the inside of a tiny hand-blown bud vase. I thought the tiny bit of vegetable matter on the bottom (and dirt) might give it away.

BTW, I bought that little vase at a flea market for $3 and it was appraised by a well-known art glass expert at $250-300 (auction estimate).

Thank you.
Being the mother of a female black hole, trust me that is not too pink. Give this little one time and she will show her true black. She will erase memory, she will stretch out time, she will have a major event horizon.
I think it's a new born black hole. :rofl:

I have already posted it last year, but somehow I can't think about anything better.
