    Very Expensive

    {Admin note: Please note that this contest will end a day earlier than usual. I will be going out of town next weekend, and would like to start the polling and the new contest on Friday, April 26. So the final day of submission will be Thursday, April 25.}

    Last week we had a contest on Very Colorful. This week, it is a contest on things that are Very Expensive.

    Of course, this term is rather relative and subjective. While laptop that costs $500 might not be considered to be "expensive", if it is a hamburger, then certainly that is one very expensive burger. So for this contest, what is considered to be "very expensive" can be quite relative. You may get a query from me if it isn't clear if what you have in the photo shows something that is expensive. However, in the end, it may be left to the voters who will have to decide if your photo satisfy the criteria of depicting something that is very expensive.

    Have fun!

    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.

    OK, so the room needs a bit of tidying up, but this is still a rather expensive laser system.
