    Feb 14th is upon us again. Hearts, love, soppy tat. You know the drill.

    Since valentines day is the Saturday, I'll leave this open for entries til Sunday.

    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.

    Whoa! No Valentine's Day pictures yet?

    This is not one of my better fireworks shot (it's so damn difficult to get the timing right), but I think you get the connection with Valentine's day.

    Can the photo be the antithesis of V day?

    I haven't really any pictures, just if I were to come up with something brilliant it would prolly be quite the opposite of "soppy tat"

    This is a tough one. Hopefully this one counts! A flower from the Rose Garden in my town

    I'll go with yes, as long as it's clearly about V.day, even if it's anti v.day.

    TBH this is an anklet, that's why it is too long for the hand :wink:

    Oh, and in the case you wonder - yes, that's valentine gift.
