Main Question or Discussion Point

We Built This City!

We have had contest depicting the tranquil countryside, farmland, and other rural areas. This time, we deal with the big bad boy. The theme this week will be on scenes from a city or any urban area (suburbia doesn't count).

Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukkah, and Happy Holidays!

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 grey 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.

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 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.

Zz.

Folks! Just because Zz chose a terrible, terrible 80's number for the thread title doesn't mean you've all got to submit pics of Music City!

Zz, how could you?

This was taken in Knoxville. It is the newly restored Tennessee Theater that was used as a backdrop for a scene in the October Sky movie. The "T" was not lit in the movie though....

Same here! My first job is haunting me - someone used to put this 80's collection over and over again. I think it brained my damage.

:rofl: :biggrin: I have to confess that I like 80s music, though, mostly I just prefer not having too much of any one kind of music.

Please check the maximum size listed in our rules for this contest and then edit your post. If not, I will have to remove it so that the PF formatting doesn't get messed up due to the width.

Here's mine. Of course, it had to be the Chicago skyline. This was taken from a friend's condo on the 33rd floor.

Snowless I can live with, but it's really weird that it's warm enough that I don't even need a jacket yet! I think we're supposed to finally get snow this week though. NOT looking forward to that.

Just remember that when it is warm and green and pretty, it is also tornado season over here.
