Ok here's my thoughts on this one. Most of you have taken the seasons literally. I guess I think sideways!

If you view life like the seasons we have main stages

A new life
Childhood
Maturity
Death

My photo shows two stages, a new life and adulthood. When my son was born it certainly changed me, there is another similarity, the changes the different seasons make to all of us.

You're gonna want to resize it though cuz it won't be included if you don't. No reason for this good of a photo to be excluded for such a silly reason. ;)

Excellent -- love the aged feeling it seems to have. I assume it was scanned? Adds a real-life quality to it...ironic considering your subject eh?

btw - once again a few of you didn't read the rules. It clearly states to PLEASE name your entries as per your nickname. I really don't know how much clearer I have to be with this. Please follow the rules people!

Since the photo is b&w, or greytones, your hair and everything else in the image is grey. Guess you didn't get that lil' joke.

613flavah, in the future just don't accept entries that break the rules. I think that is mentioned in original post (i'm too lazy to go back and check). It's not a bad thing dismissing some of these, if they can't get it fixed in time then that's not your fault.

People need to remember here that the competitions are done in 613flavahs spare time, all the rules are put in place to make it as easy and quick as possible for her to do the work. I wish people would respect this.

I don't see this as a lack of respect issue. People do forget things sometimes, even after reading and knowing the rules, and I really doubt anyone is going out of their way to make things difficult for her. :roll:

I agree though, if an entry doesn't follow the rules, then simply disregard it.

Hi Guys, I never disrespected the rules. I actually skim read them, my fault I know and I missed the size limits, when UN pointed it out I sorted it.

Apologies.
