    The Alphabets

    Very much like the Photo Association theme, this week's contest will be affected by when you enter it. The first photo posted for this contest must have, as its main subject, something that starts with the letter "A". The next photo must have, as its main subject, something that starts with the letter "B".... and so on. The names of these objects must be in English.

    These subjects should not simply be a sign or a printed word starting with that letter. They must have given, popular names starting with the relevant letter.

    In the unlikely event that more than one members were posting at the same time for the same letter, only the first entry for that alphabet letter that appears in the thread will be accepted.

    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. 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.

    Eclipse. The 1979 solar eclipse. Taken while hanging out of the window of a car driving down US 30 chasing a break in the cloud cover.

    Jumping boy. My wife was very unhappy when she found out that I had let our son use his new bookcase for this. She made him actually put books in it but he and I knew what it was really for :smile: Notice the supports that anchor it to the wall so he could climb up without tipping it over.

    I just recently re-discovered this photo in with some of my Mom's stuff that my brother found while moving from his house. I was living at home at the time it was taken, and developed and printed it myself in a dark room I had set up in my Mom's laundry room. I thought it had long since been lost.

    You get a second chance at M,S or T. (For me, even R-elativity would be acceptable for historic reasons.)
