    Turned Into A Statue

    This week, the main subject of your photos must be on statue/s.

    Zz.

    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. 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. 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.

    This one might be questionable, but not for me. It is, or was, a large oak tree that was struck by lightning about twenty years ago. Gradually over the years the Forest Service has cut back any limbs that could possibly be dangerous. This is what it has looked like for the last several years.

    This is the Future-Buddha statue (in Buddhism) at peak of Bai Dinh Pagoda-The Biggest Pagoda in Southeast Asia(my father land).

    Q: what about people posing as "living statues", or posing in the form of a statue (i.e. 'the thinker')?

    I didn't think about that, but I'd say that should be fine, considering the phrase of our theme.

    If you cannot see the relevance to the contest title 'Turned Into A Statue' then you would have to look at

    The guy who did this (I forget his name) had statues all up and down Broadway in NYC some years back and I got pics of almost all of them.

    One of his recurring themes was money, and to really get the flavor of this one, you have to see the closeups of the guy being crushed by the coin and the other little figures as well (note the two hugging at the bottom of the coin), but since the rule is "one pic per member", well ...
