Season Photos, page 5

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:

2005-03-18 [Cougar]: *laughs* i know. People wanted me to enter the fifth one on my house but i didn't like it. The next most voted for were the first entry and this one. ^^ so i just tossed them in and let them fall as they may. I didn't think Gone Fishin' was very change-ish but my photography friend liked it. *shrugs* lol

2005-03-18 [Yuriona]: It was a lovely photo but sadly didn't fit the contest theme. :) Next time you should just go with what you like and not bother with the poll. LOL!

2005-03-18 [Cougar]: *laughs* i know. My instincts work better than ppl's opinions most of the time.

2005-03-20 [losthero]: Is the new one I put up better?

2005-03-20 [redheadedterror]: okies thank you..

2005-03-20 [Janouk]: Oh, I was just thinking about making a photo about spring cleaning!

2005-03-21 [Asrun]: That's beautiful [Skydancer]!

2005-03-21 [Bye bye elftown]: wow really beautiful :|

2005-03-21 [Althanas]: DANG IT! I just got my film back today!! Grrr.... Next time its the 1 hour photo!

2005-03-21 [Yuriona]: Message me [Althanas]... I closed it a bit early. I may allow one more entry. ;)

2005-03-21 [Bye bye elftown]: So the results will be set by poll or the judge is going to be yuriona?

2005-03-21 [Yuriona]: And again I quote from the little blurb right above the badges:: Two Photographs will be chosen by the Council and the Assembly among all those presented.

2005-03-22 [Bye bye elftown]: oh ooopsies

2005-03-23 [rabidbunny]: how will we get to know who the winners are and the awards??

2005-03-23 [Yuriona]: Once the Council and Assembly have finished voting, the winners will be announced on Mainstreet.

2005-03-23 [rabidbunny]: cool thanks

2005-03-23 [Yuriona]: Now I realize that this goes without saying but even though the winners will be chosen by the Council and the Assembly please DON'T beg for votes. It's annoying and will get you disqualified.

2005-03-28 [chosenwarrior7]: What is "sprinter" (sring/winter?)?

2005-03-31 [Garden4Gnome]: spring cleaning lol

2005-07-27 [*Hottie-Holly*]: is it too late to enter something?

2005-07-28 [Yncke]: Yes, a bit very very too late.
