    The blues
    Interpret as you will
    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.

    This was shot "back in the days" on Fuji Provia - I think the best film ever manufactured. There was no "digital" back then... :smile:

    I like it because there are only four predominant colors in this picture.

    Hum... since almost everyone is going for blue sky, I'll change it slightly and go for blue lights! :)

    Oh yes, look closely at the glass reflexions, if this was to be a professional studio shot, you would not have seen the photograhper reflected, and you'll see that there are a lot more inperfections.

    If they tell you vodka 80 proof doesn't burn - don't believe them.

    Did you drink that while it was still on fire?

    No, this is a stage of making "przepalanka" - vodka with caramelized sugar.

    coverme, I think you're wrong and, to be frank, it's very rude of you to be making baseless claims. Have you seen other photos that Andre has posted? He's an excellent photographer. This shot is a great shot, and it's on par with many that he's posted.

    Not an original interpretation, but it'll do.
