1. 'Space Explorer Icecream Buggey b/c Aliens Like Icecream Too!' - [moira hawthorne]


Proof <img50*0:stuff/day%203%20a.JPG> see marbles lottas marbles
my son Eirikr built it and together we set up the photo set than I made it more spacey...
March 29 2007 on my livingroom couch

2. "Fly Me Away" - [Able Insane]


Proof <img50*0:>
When I read the criteria I was slightly disappointed because I had taken several pictures that could be changed to make something very spacey. Because of this, I knew exactly where to go to take a picture.
This picture was taken today, April 4, 2007, in my backyard^.^

4. "Cityscape" - [Triola]


Proof <img50*0:stuff/z/35761/triolaimages/i1178216344_1.jpg>
Taken today, the 3. of May. It's from the inside of my computer, because I've always thought that the boards with all the micro-thingies look like small cities.

5. 'Space In My Empty Coffee Mug' - [moira hawthorne]


Proof <img50*0:stuff/CC%20empty.jpg> see one red marble
May 9 2007 on my computer desk.



8. "Recroom Wormhole" - [deRevenant]

proof photo<img50*0:>with small yellow tennis ball for round object
pix taken May 9, 2007, showing west wall of downstairs living room

used PcImg Editor for the photo manip/i changed the image to monochrome, then used twirl and radial blur effects; my intention was this: what would happen if an interdimensional vortex suddenly showed up in your home? :-o

9. "Successful Ignition of the Neo-Aetheric Reactor" - [deRevenant]

proof photo<img50*0:>round object is the little black antenna ball on a string (i suppose the tissue lantern itself also counts)
pix taken June 17, 2007/proof photo taken at different angle, shows the ceiling light in my bedroom

rotated the image & adjusted the color/hue, i got the effect i wanted with fewer adjustments this time; got to be careful though, these captured alien reactors are unstable, you know...might put someone's eye out... O_o

10. "Lazer gun" - [Ilana]


Taken in my backyard at approximately 1pm (Eastern time) on May 27th, 2007. The model is my little brother. I blurred up the background, made him black and white and added the laser beam. In the proof, my spherical object is a tennis ball because I didn't have anything else handy.


12. "Traversing the Rocky Wastes" - [Yuriona] An intrepid traveller crosses a barren, alien land while leading his six legged beast of burden.


Proof: <img50*0:stuff/sci%20fi%20photo%20contest%20proof%20yuri.jpg>   <img50*0:stuff/scifi%20contest%20proof%20-%202%20yuri.jpg>
Photo taken last weekend in my driveway by me of an unknown beetle. That really is one of my daughters' balls in the background but its all blurry due to the setting on the camera and I didn't want to bring it closer for fear my subject would skitter away on me. :3 Bug saddle & tack and little alien dude added using Photoshop Elements.

13 . My indoors UFO , only active between 11pm and midnight [Iske]

UFO non Active <img100*0:stuff/PowerB.jpg>

14."swash" It's the roof of the building below, from the inside.

Proof: <img100*0:>



17. "Alien Abduction" - [Sir. Robert]
You never know when those aliens will come out of the sky to probe you in places you don’t want probed…but this time I was ready with my camera! (of course they still got me, but at least I have some proof)
-Picture taken June 10th 2007 in my room
Lots of marbles on a flashlight!

18. "The Nebula" - [Sir. Robert]
It was a nice clear night up in the mountians and I snapped a great picture through my 10000000000x lense of a nebula on my digital camera :) ...This may be a little too much editing :S
-Picture taken June 20th 2007 at approx 1:00AM

18. "The Horns of Atakoch" - [playslashwrite]
These are the fabled Horns of Atakoch, the only bastion of sanctuary you will find in the mountain regions of the planet. Took me a while to get the editing done due to other restrictions and physical problems, but it's finally done! The horns are actually a souvenir I bought in Crete and the mountains are my messy bedsheets. The planet in the background is completely photoshop work!
-The pictures were taken on monday the 14th of may, 2007, in my very own bedroom.

I didn't have any marbles or anything round, so I ended up using some beads that are attached to my pirate sword XD

19. "Intergalactic Portal" - [Kelaria]

2007-06-22 [playslashwrite]: thats not a bad thing right? i actually found that to be kinda cool:)

2007-06-23 [Ilana]: Thanks, Trennas... It's just weird to me, I guess.

2007-06-23 [playslashwrite]: i guess its just not the first thing that sprung to mind:)

2007-06-23 [Yuriona]: Hey! Mine has a person in it! Just not a human person. :)

2007-06-23 [Teufelsweib]: pwnage, [playslashwrite], pwnage! =D

2007-06-23 [Ilana]: That's true, Yuriona.

2007-06-23 [Kyrinn]: Hey, its a person, he has legs and arms and a cool mount.. XD I wont look at beetles the same ever!

2007-06-24 [playslashwrite]: or at the same size:p

2007-07-02 [Hobbit teen]: what if you have other photos as proof on a wiki but they are in different areas? can i put the wiki page as proof?

2007-07-02 [Linderel]: Well, no. The deadline has passed.

2007-07-02 [playslashwrite]: oh wow, didnt even notice it XD

2007-07-02 [moira hawthorne]: goood luck to everyone!

2007-07-02 [Ilana]: I didn't notice either... time flies when it's summer time and I spend all my spare time playing Diablo II. Good luck, all!

2007-07-02 [Relphien]: yes good luck!!!

2007-07-03 [Sir. Robert]: Good luck everyone :)))

2007-07-14 [Sunrose]: A number of submissions were removed from the contest and put on ET scifi photo contest related. After discussing all the entries we felt that these entries didn't follow the theme as much as we feel they should.
The images should show they are science fiction without needing a description on what makes them science fiction.
When using objects, the objects should not show so well what they actually are..
Well, if your entry was moved and you have questions, please comment there :)

2007-07-20 [Ilana]: Hmm... this contest is closed, yet there seems to be a new entry. How strange.

2007-07-20 [Sunrose]: Yes I added it, [Kelaria]'s other entry was denied as a submission. She was allowed to make a new entry that will make her a participant, but it was not considered in the final voting as an entry because of this.
Congratulations btw, both of you ^^

2007-07-20 [Ilana]: Ah, I see. It's all good then and not some strange warp in the space-time continuum.

2007-07-20 [Sunrose]: lol :P
