Main Question or Discussion Point

Stop Wining!

This week, the "wining" refers to the delectable wines. Your photos must have, as its main subject, wines!

These wines may be depicted in glasses, in barrels, in boxes (ugh!), or still in bottles. Empty wine bottles or other vessels do not qualify. Grape juice that has not been fermented do not qualify either. On the other hand, fortified wines (such as Port), or drinks that have been made predominantly out of wines (Sangria), do qualify.

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. Alternatively, you may simply upload your image file to PF, and then have the full image displayed in your post.

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. The photo of the subject must be something that you took directly, not via in intermediary medium, and not taken by someone else. Unless otherwise noted, a photo of another photo, painting, print, etc. does not qualify.

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'm underage. I'm really going to have to dig through old photos to find some wine somewhere. Would a vineyard count?

It has to be wines, not wine-related. It is why "grape juice", for example, is not acceptable. A vineyard is even more removed from a wine than grape juice.

Too bad, I thought about a cork to get the "Stop" in the title involved.

A cork with wine?

A reversed unopened bottle with the cork stopping the wine?

Far better than wine with cork!

I haven't had a good idea, yet, only saved a cork - just in case.

The producer of all the Pixar movies, these are bottles of Pixar-labeled wines from the John Lasseter winery.

Final day to submit your photo for this contest. So plenty of time to open another bottle of wine!
