    Well-Beaten Path

    This week, the pictures must show a walking path that is well-used.

    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 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.

    Zz.

    Good to see pictures from you again, scorpa. You've been absent for such a long time!

    Binzing, mines a old Indian trail that runs about 100 miles in Michigan, it was much easier to follow in summer.

    The path on Torc Mountain in Ireland was so well beaten that they had to cover it over with old railway sleepers to prevent soil erosion.

    I really love that one Edward.

    All of the pictures are great, but this one has an ethereal quality. You could sell prints of this. Heck, you should make it into a postcard for the club.

    By the time I walked the path over the dunes to get to the ocean and back I was one tired out old dude. The path meandered around through the wild grass making the trip much further than I had expected.

    I don't think a bridge like that would qualify to be considered as a "well-beaten" path, since it is paved. The picture should show a path that, for the most part, is well-beaten due to repeated use.

    You may submit another picture if you wish.

    Point taken, Marzena is already asleep (almost 1 a.m. here), so she will not know before tomorrow.

    This is effect of nuances that show in translation. Path may refer to a sidewalk - which is paved. That's not to say you are wrong - you are the boss, so you are right by definition :wink: - just to explain why we thought this picture will fit.

    Not a problem. I fully expected that there will be things lost in translation, which is why I often try to explain the theme a bit (or too verbose for some people). When we refer to a "well-beaten path", it usually refer to a path that was created because people kept walking on it over and over again until a clear path is made, rather than a path that was "formally" made.
