    With This Ring, I Thee Wed

    This time, it is on weddings! Your picture must depict scenes at a wedding. This includes the scenes at the actual ceremony and the reception. Note that pictures on items related to a wedding without showing that they were taken at the wedding site is not sufficient.

    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.

    :rofl: Okay, I'll have to see if any from my friend's wedding came out well enough for this. I was having trouble getting good photos...people had a tendency to get their heads in my way as I was snapping photos, and even if I got part of the shot I was going for, the flash would be off their head, so everything was too dark. :rolleyes: Some were in daylight though, so those might work better.

    Oh, just to clarify, does it have to be AT the ceremony or reception, or can it be between the two (clearly on the wedding day)...such as during the photos taken between?

    In between is fine. All that is required is that the photos were taken at the location and with the wedding atmosphere clearly present.

    Such an egregious grammatical error in the thread title makes my eyes hurt. It should be:

    With this ring, I thee wed.

    So did you use a selftimer or something Chi? Don't mean to be a stickler, just checking to see that you took it yourself...Not that I really care, thats Zz job to keep everybody in order.

    Crap. You're right. A friend used my camera for that one. (Me being in the shot should have reminded me). I was about to post a different picture when I thought, at the last second, "no that one is better."

    disqualified!

    Evo, you could move this to the member photo thread, I suppose.
