    Will You Be My Valentine?

    Valentine's Day is almost upon us. This week's theme is all about Valentine's day and what it represents. You picture must have a subject matter that has a clear connection to or representation of Valentine's Day. I may have to make a judgement call in cases where this connection is not clear.

    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. 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 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.

    I need to get taking pictures again for I haven't entered a competition in ages. I have a valentines type picture but its awful because I was just getting the opinion of my friend (an artist) about some artwork I did in a valentines card for this coming Hallmark event.

    Well, given the lack of entries, maybe I have a shot with this (I've been a bit bored).

    Unfortunately, while the story is romantic, the picture does not have any direct connection to Valentine's Day itself. So I have to disqualify it. You may replace it with another picture if you wish.

    Turbo - you need to go back outside and make a heart in the snow, then submit the picture. :biggrin:

    Alternatively, hang a heart (preferably red, but not too gawdy) in the branches. :smile:

    BTW - Congratulations on 32 years!

    As long as Turbo doesn't make it the way he'd write his name.

    No fair! Pretty lighting for your photo AND a sweetheart who sends roses! :grumpy: I had to resort to photographing the remnants of a bag of Hershey's kisses that I bought for myself. :rolleyes: (No, they're not good chocolate.)

    I turned the lights out and held a flashlight over them and used the timed shutter release.

    Those chocolates look really good Moonbear!! Do they have just a hint of cherry or a lot of cherry flavor?

    Here you go! In a blizzard, perhaps the most temporary Valentine's Day greeting ever recorded.

    [​IMG]

    Edit: It has been about 15 minutes or so, and the valentine is nearly obliterated, almost as quickly as one written in the sand on an incoming tide. We are looking at a LOT more snow tonight according to the more knowledgeable weathermen. Not such a bad thing, since the last few winters have been dry, depriving us of snow-pack to replenish the aquifers. Anyway, happy Valentine's Day. Here in Maine the blizzard has prevented the delivery of flowers, prompted the cancellation of dinners at restaurants, and has encouraged people like my wife and me to cozy in at home and ride it out in comfort.
