Season Photos, page 1

Like all the great contests here, this one has a particular theme so no posting photos of your great Aunt Ethel or the neighbour's dog.
As the month of March often signifies the change of season, we felt that we would like to see some photos that best represent this climatic time of change all over the world. Be it from Winter to Spring in the Northern Hemisphere or from Summer to Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere, we want to see it all!

Photographs must be taken by Elftowners and posted here by the original photographer. Which means, no matter how much you might like a particular image on somebody's house, you are not allowed to add it here without the photographer's permission. Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, i.e. no coffe stained, faded Kodachrome photos from the 1960's. Any such entry will be removed. Each member may enter 2 entries!! Please keep in mind that it is possible that a photograph has the same title as another one. This is not against the rules as long as the photographers' names are clear.
Ok... a few last minute notes: While this is a photograph based competition, we will not be accepting photomanipulations for this particular contest. We want to see your photos of what best depicts the change of seasons, no fairies or unicorns this time around.
Do not feel limited to nature only shots. Anything you feel is a sign of changing seasons is welcomed... just be ready to explain your photo if the need arises.

Since the chosen images will be featured on Main Street, we would like to keep them fairly small. Your image should be no wider than 300 pixels and the height should be no more than 500. Be creative but please keep that in mind!

Subject Matter:
Submissions for Mainstreet will not be accepted if they feature violence or disturbing actions. Only photographs will be accepted.

What will we be expecting? Creativity and change-of-season based photos: melting snow, muddy fields, monsoons, - you get the idea.

Deadline: March 21, 2005

How to post it here:
Add your image after the last one that has been already posted. Don't forget to write its title and your user name. For example:

1. "Title" - [insert user name]

Two Photographs will be chosen by the Council and the Assembly among all those presented.
The winners will receive the colored badge and the participants will receive the green version of it:

2005-04-21 [barutha]: well for me i think the fog and the early morning sunny wetness. makes me think of it anyway.

2005-04-21 [Ishje]: hm..maby..i like the pic's that have won but i guess the theme is diffrent for evry person ;)

2005-04-21 [barutha]: they should do a theme on pictures portraying 'nuclear fission'.

2005-04-21 [Ishje]: i am sorry but i don't know what that means in duch :S

2005-04-21 [barutha]: dont worry, i was being facetious.

2005-04-21 [Ipsilon]: I think a theme like "Children of the World" would be an interesting one

2005-04-21 [barutha]: how would you portray that apart from taking pictures of children? you know how edgy people can get around that.

2005-04-21 [Elmiira]: well, you deleted my comment. what ever.

2005-04-21 [xX.//Standing Up From Underneath//.Xx]: I agree. Taking picture of children would freak some people out. Espically if you have to take alot of them to get that one shot you've been looking for.

2005-04-21 [Ishje]: there are some parts of the world where you cannot take pictures of childen without premission of there parents...

2005-04-21 [Elmiira]: yeah. and then also, it is always wrong to put pics of people in net without their permission. hard to ask from a child.. so we should ask from the parents. But yeah, it's a hard theme. otherwise it would be good though..

2005-04-21 [Ishje]: yea i guess..

2005-04-21 [xX.//Standing Up From Underneath//.Xx]: But sun shots sounds like a good idea... or possiblily even the animals idea. Either one would be great.

2005-04-22 [Elmiira]: I liked the sun thing too. :) I love photographing sun.. :D

2005-04-22 [xX.//Standing Up From Underneath//.Xx]: Oh! Ditto! Totally! I love the sun!

2005-04-22 [barutha]: sun is boring. sunsets get boring i mean. think of something good and difficult.

2005-04-22 [xX.//Standing Up From Underneath//.Xx]: Why not a combo?

2005-04-22 [barutha]: what sort of thing?

2005-04-22 [xX.//Standing Up From Underneath//.Xx]: Since lots of us like sunsets, then why not do sunsets with objects in them? For say, boats (for ppl with lakes in area) or maybe birds (seagulls for ppl with ocean area) or even trees, clouds... anything... as a combo.

2005-04-23 [Elmiira]: sounds good.. like with a name "under the downgoing sun" or something like that. I would like that idea. :)

2005-04-23 [xX.//Standing Up From Underneath//.Xx]: Great! Who wants to take this to the council?
