Main Question or Discussion Point

The Dirty Dozen

They come in TWELVES! For this contest, the quantity 12 is the subject. Your photo must clearly show a dozen of a type of object. This may be a dozen eggs, a dozen baked goods, etc... There must be exactly 12 of these objects, not more, not less.

They must also not be a random collection of 12 objects. There must be a clear and apparent common theme or characteristic for all of them.

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. Size limitations: Your photo is only limited to the file size limitation set by PhysicsForums. However, your may want to consider reducing the size of your photo if the file size exceeds 1 Mb. If your file is being hosted elsewhere, I will have to see how it is being displayed here, and I may ask you to resize and resubmit if it causes problems.

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 withdrawal 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.

Following the 6 on right are 3 pairs indicated by the double bulges. Even that last pair on left can be resolved.

Yes that's required. And evidently not clearly scene. So fine, leave it up to Zz. This is an easy topic. But with this cheap phone it was very difficult to frame 12 of these buoys: the screen image during photo did not correspond to actual photo. Out of about 10 above was chosen.
