You MUST have taken the image yourself.

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.

*smiles -- Sorry about your camera. Just read the post in the photography board. You are welcome to describe it, but I suspect that it simply won't qualify. Sorry.

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:
