    Vacation

    This contest should be easy since almost everyone takes pictures while they are on a vacation. So the pictures for this contest must be taken during one of your vacations. Note that your vacation picture must be taken away from the city/region where you normally live.

    Good luck!


    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. But other than that, 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. 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.

    The Cueva Ambrosio, This is a shot of a grotto in the cave that opens on the roof to the outside. The Cueva was across the street from the hotel in Varedaro Beach Cuba.If you ever get there you must see the cave paintings.

    I don't think I've posted this one before. It's part of a whole series of pictures I took in NY from my dorm room as I ate a baloney sandwich.
    I give you:

    "Baloney Sandwich With New York City Background"

    it was taken in NY the weekend I arrived, before classes started. that weekend counts as a vacation away from home, don't it?

    aww I always get disqualified :cry: this is like all the "does not follow assignment instructions" I always got in middle school and high school.

    This is rather weak. One can also say that a weekend at home is a "vacation" using this logic. Are you sure you don't have another picture to submit that is truly from a vacation?
