This was taken on my long walk to school one morning in my home state of Michigan. I'd say it shows 3 of the 4 seasons -- summer, autumn, and winter. I think the deciduous trees here can be very stubborn, since i took this one in October.

This was taken two years ago near the end of fall/beginning of winter from the 7th floor of the dorm building I lived in at the time. A lot of the campus could be seen from that point, and when I took the picture, a light layer of snow had just fallen.

Interesting Fabinator. Oddly, I thought of doing exactly the same thing with a different photo, and then woke up to the fact this wasn't digital art lol. Very nice though.

Some stunning entries here. I'd like to take part but i have my doubts on doing that somehow. Credit to UNFLUX and Spoof for uploading two really good photographs. The rest are all good, but they really stand out.

Well here's my actual entry. I just returned from a trip to Paris and this is the Louvre.
You may think that this entry has nothing to do with the subject but it has.
It stands for the changes and the contrast between the old palace and the new pyramid.

Happy new year!

You will have to upload the file to an image hosting place like ImageShack and then you use some bbcode to display it here.

Code: [ Select ]

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.
