    The One True Color

    The theme this week might be either one of the most challenging, or one of the most boring, or both!

    For this week's contest, your photo must show just one, single color over the entire photograph. That's it.

    The object in your photo must have just one single, solid color. The object may have patterns or textures, but it must not have more than one color. Your photo may show variation in the shade of that color due to shadowing or the lighting, but your original object must not be the one having this different shades of the color.

    Since your entire photo must only have this one single color, it means that you may not be able to include the edge of the object, since that may show something else in the photo with a different color. Every square inch, or centimeter, of your photo must be of this one, single color, and nothing else.

    Capice?

    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.

    Cropped from a much larger photo.
    Hopefully, "white" counts as a single color, even though scientifically it is ............... :oldwink:

    Does it disqualify that the originally identical colour on one sheet has washed out more than the other? I can give you a more monotonous and boring picture if the rules require. :oldsmile:

    Unfortunately, it does disqualify it, because parts of it are now of a different shade.
