Nice! This should be good. Now I know I need to somehow hide this competition from AXE, because I am quite certain he has some outstanding pictures from last summer's hurricanes. ATNO predicts Axe as the winner on this one if he sees it *lol (although one never knows until the vote is cast.)

Yeah I thought it would be a good one! A friend gave me the topic so I had no advantage! :D

Oooh yeah I recall when Axe had those hurricanes, well we should get some awesome pics this time then!!

This was a picture after a bad T-Storm on the prairie in North Dakota. The picture was taken with a standard 35 mm camera then scanned.
The colors have not been modified or changed in any way which makes the picture rare.

ATNO...i have a photographic memory. If i was to describe what i was unfortunate to take a picture off would that count as a contribution? :lol:

I am annoyed, i had my camera ready only for it to stop working when i really needed it. The scene outside was beautiful.

Very good picture cubechris! I really like it. Mind if i email this to a few people? Any way this is my first competition. Here is my entry

http://www.thesoccermall.net/fog.jpg

ok, some people are like :shock: its fog, but i live in Phoenix Arizona and there is never any fog. My parents have lived here for years and years and they have never seen any thing like this. Photo wasnt manipulated in any way except for sizing.

I had a look about 30 seconds ago at the image you originally posted and to be honest, i dont have a clue what the difference is, assuming you changed it. :wink:

Not to be counted as an entry. I'll add my real entry later if I can still find it, but I did like the way this one turned out so I thought I'd share it (click thumbnail to enlarge):

This photo had taken on Friday 31 last year ( 2004) hehe
I went out with my family for dinner at one restaurant close to
the sea. This is a view of Thai bay. It looks clam and peaceful,
but sometime it did hurt you. :?

It's a lovely shot, Toony! The color is very nice.

ATNO: You could have passed that one off as a real shot, I think. :)

Yes, Toony that is a nice shot indeed.

dM and Musik - yep, I pretty much knew when that one was done rendering it looked pretty much like the real deal, but I am happy to abide by the rules. I just love that program though (Terragen) and it makes the best skies. I could pretty much make it do any kind of "weather" I want. Couldn't resist the opportunity to play with it.

Fortunately that was taken two years ago. Tomorrow should be around 50-something and partly sunny (not to be confused with partly cloudy). No snow on the ground at this moment. Got over 2 inches of rain the last two days. That picture was a "breath of fresh air".

Thanks. About the only time I really like snow anymore is when it looks like that. We get one of those kind of snows a couple times a year usually.

Darn, late again... had a quick look last night through some of my images but didn't see anything I felt was good enough. Although I had a really good snow scene from Christmas Day here which, with hindsight, I should've thrown into the mix.

Nice entries guys!

I'll try and pay more attention next time ;)

How far away did you move? If it's reasonable close, check the old place. I've heard of cats and dogs working their way back for miles.

Yes weve been to the old place, but no luck, are old cat did that once, and we were lucky to find him hiding at the old house.
