as promised, i went out on a drive on Saturday and took some pictures. It was probably the best day (weather wise) i could have done this. Very sunny!

Here you go, here is my entry...

I would have made it appear on the screen but the size of it on this forum is HUGE. Its not the best picture, but it was as good as i was probably going to get within the 30 miles from my house i was going to get.

Wow! That one works just fine, tojan! Welcome to OZZU!


Thanks, I've got tons of great pics, mainly from Poland (European State, not a region in Maine or bottled water:) , but recently my brother took amazing pictures in Thailand, Laos and Kambodia.
You can see it here: http://www.ewiza.com/azja/
If you se those pictures you'll understand why it's good, that he doesn't take part in this competition.

BTW. This trip can be a good example of what you can see for a little more than 1 K dollars.

Hiya SB, please amend your entry to the above and PM me the link and I will add it back in. Your current entry is 762 x 571 and 839.65 kB in file size. This kills users on dialup modems.

Cheers!

I was taking an early morning stroll by the ocean in Peru and I came across this pelican catching some zzz's near the ocean shore! It looked so peaceful I would have felt awful had I woken it.

My version of tranquility. Somewhat different than the rest, but gardening is my sense of tranquility and this picture of the first bushel of tomatoes I ever picked reflects it. I wish I had a better camera for quaility, but I always sit back in peace when I recall this moment:

Question - If I was going around, saw a nice photo, set it up, then handed the camera to a friend with explicit instructions as to what the photo is, so i could jump in it, can I count as having taken it? If the only thing I didn't do is click the shutter?

Sorry Kairisika, but the primary rule of the competition is that it must be a picture you have taken yourself.

And Truce -- you have it right, that's why editing is not allowed in this forum. In the future if you make a mistake that needs edited, feel welcome to PM any mod you see online. If I'm not mistaken, I believe all of us can moderate here and fix it for you. Musik is the one primarily in charge of the competitions. Final decisions on what will or won't be accepted are hers.

//edit correction. UNFLUX, musik and myself are the moderators here, so PM one of us if you need something fixed (And of course Bigwebmaster could fix it as well.)

Hi Kairisika, your entry needs to be an image you have taken yourself, while its impossible to enforce this, we rely on the honesty and integrity of our forum members to be truthful.

Competition closes tomorrow, we hope you can get something in! This is the most we have had for a comp, it's been a fantastic response so far.

Cheers,
Rose :D

I am so sorry - just looked back and realized I also got the dimentions wrong. Can someone delete my previous posts? Man, haven't been here in forever and come back to cause this.

my photo:

I had read the requirements. For some reason I had 800x600 stuck in my head. I resized the image now if you could delete the other posts for me.

musik - you should probably check with Bigweb and make sure the poll options will allow that many. If I'm not mistaken, I believe the board default setting is a max of 10. Hmm...yep -- it is 10, so he'll need to change that if he never has in the past.
