    What A Mess!

    Just like the title say, this week, your photo must have, as its main subject, something or some place that looks very messy. Shouldn't be difficult if you have a teenage kid!

    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

  3. What if you are a teenager yourself.:smile:
    Thankfully I checked the contest before mom returned; a brilliant this piece of art would have been lost otherwise. So here it goes.

    This mess is not made by some teenager, but by adults!

    Unfortunately, the culprits got camera-shy when I showed up....

    A tornado touched down in the next town around 6pm on Wednesday. This shot is from the roadway, aiming down along the path of the tornado. Broken, splintered, and uprooted trees, including a lot of spruce and firs that are all twisted up in one another. It would take a skilled and brave/foolhardy person to get into that mess with a chainsaw to clean it up, since about any tree that you cut is going to spring in one direction or another. Very dangerous.
