      The monthly contest will continue this month. But you guys must play nice and follow the rules. They are here for a reason and if you do not follow them, you'll be excluded with no warning.

      Rules

      1. Photo must be taken DURING the assignment time period. That means shot after the first posting of the assignment and before the deadline. NO EXCEPTIONS. This encourages you to go out and shoot with the assignment in mind. Please keep EXIF intact so that others can see it. If you use a host that does not retain the EXIF, please link back to the original photo at the host site. Do not use "save for web" to save images as that strips the EXIF info, use the regular "save as" command to insure it remains intact. One entry per person. You MUST have some way to prove when the photo was taken via EXIF or a link to a site that will display this data.

      In other words, you see the topic FIRST, THEN YOU SHOOT THE PHOTO. If you did not do that, its not eligible for the contest.

      2. Please do not type any explanations of the photo as to how it relates to the topic. Let the photo speak for itself.

      3. Basic Photoshop/editing is allowed (levels, exposure, saturation, sharpening, etc), but no complete altering of the photo/subject, as in, no fake blurs, no HDR, no dropping one subject into a different background, that kind of stuff. Converting to B&W and selective color is OK. Removing small objects that do not belong is also OK.

      4. No borders or frames on the photos. This tends to detract from or unfairly add to a photo and the judging is on the photo itself, not how nicely you can present it.

      5. No nudity, illegal activity, implied illegal activity, or anything else that would normally not be allowed in this forum should be posted.

      6. Post entries in this thread, do not make a separate thread for each entry. You have until Midnight Pacific Time on the 23rd to post your entry.

      7. The assignment thread is for posting photos ONLY, no discussion until voting starts and all ideas/questions should be directed to the person who is in charge of the assignment that month.

      8. On the 24th, use THIS thread to post critiques and who you think the winner should be. Until a better alternative is found, the person in charge of the month will tally the votes and declare a winner. Any entry deemed NOT on topic may be left out of the poll at the discretion of person in charge of month. Voting will last till the last day of the month when a winner will be chosen and the new assignment will start. So you should be ready to take over for the next month and have a topic in mind that you can send to me immediately.

      As a reminder, please do not enter the contest unless you have an idea for a topic next month. Many winners have said "I didn't expect to win so I'm not sure what I should do for a topic." Have it in your head already or DO NOT enter the contest because if you win you MUST come up with something.

      I must receive an IM with the new topic at the beginning of the month. I will not start the new month until I have that topic IM'd to me so please make sure you do this. If you're traveling or going to be unavailable at the time the contest ends, make sure you give me an IM before then or make sure someone else can contact me.

      These rules aren't hard, please be prepared if you are going to participate.

      Whatever the winner wants the topic to be, that is it. Do not start polls or have questions about what would be good. Send me the topic so we can move forward.

      I don't always have the time to watch over or organize this, however, I will post the sticky for each assignment. You guys must self regulate and come up with your own ideas.

      Please report any problems or issues directly to me, report all assignment related questions to the person in charge that month. Everyone is encouraged to participate regardless of skill level. With or without an SLR. It will help you grow as a photographer to see how others perspectives on a similar subject.

      Person in charge this month is 71sbeetle, so contact him with any questions about the subject.

      Previous topics have been:



      Please be prepared to choose something new if you win.

      Enjoy, and let your imagination run wild.

      I went to a women's workout center in town called "Curves", started setting up all my camera gear and was quickly kicked out... So probably no submission for me this month. :/
