~~ Patterns ~~ a new challenge
« on: November 12, 2006, 02:49:17 AM »
New Challenge

    ~Patterns~

As always, please read the Standard Challenge Rules.

This challenge is for anything you see a pattern in. Can be man made, or naturally occuring. Could be hard geometric or free flowing. What ever you, the photographer, see's a pattern in.

Contest will close on December 9th and 12 midnight, my time. (that's east coast United States for those who don't know.)

Please post your submissions here.

Now fire up those imaginations!!!

Grand prize, my admiration forever. :D :D

If I pushed a copy of myself off a cliff because he was swearing could I be charged with making an obscene clone fall?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Just a reminder that the board guidelines request images not exceed 700 pixels on the longest size, and not exceed 150 kb

There are several threads in the guidelines board explaining how to reduce file size without reducing image size or quality - please remember to adhere to these principles.

If your images are excessively large (in dimension or file size), you may receive a message from me or the other moderators asking you to revise the post.

If you need help with it, that's fine - it's why we're here :)

Thanks, and on with the Challenge! :D
