    The Theme:


    The Rules:

    - Photographs must be taken by you - no nicking them off the Web
    - Photos must be taken specifically for the contest - get out there and get snapping!
    - One picture per person.
    - No excessive digital manipulation (i.e. adding a more dramatic sky from another photo to your picture, or creating negative images etc.). Cropping, and adjusting levels, contrast, saturation etc. is ok though.
    - Equipment: Anything goes as long as the results can be seen from here.
    - Voting takes place when the contest closes.
    - The winner of the contest gets to choose the next subject.
    - The entire community is allowed to vote for one picture in the voting thread

    Think I might be consuming lots of spirits before tackling this one. :D

    Remember me? I've been busy being a student, but now that it's holiday time I've time for lurking on the internets again. I hope it's ok for me to submit an image. :)


    - which is the ghost, the one-eyed scribble monster, or the shadow-girl behind it?

    Cool! Good entry, IgorMina.
  6. Hsing Moderator

    Yes, that looks great!
    I'm looking forward to more entries!
  7. IgorMina New Member

    Thanks! :)
    I can't wait to see other people's entries either! :D

    I do have an idea but my camera is not working:sad:. I hope to borrow one before thread closes.

    Well, seeing we have just one entry and several people claiming they've got ideas or at least find the idea interesting, I say we follow our competition tradition and delay the deadline.

    New closing date would be

    SUNDAY 21st.

    The bugger was getting the quill to stand upright, but the candle didn't cast a strong enough shadow for the best effect.. ah well.

  12. randywine Member

    It's a quote from Hamlet...

  13. Joculator The 'Old' Fool

    Love to join in, but circumstances do not allow...

    Maybe next time.
  21. Rincewind Number One Doorman

    Aces Lyia! Is it a balloon or a football that's been kicked? If it was a balloon what was it attached too?

    Real good show this month.
  22. Lyia New Member

    :D Thank you! It's neither. I used a small paper lantern. It's tied to my fishing pole. Luckily the tree hides the fishing line somewhat. You should have seen the looks I recieved walking through the cememtary with a ghost attached to a fishing pole. I of course walked by as if it was normal to fish in a cemetary.
