Theme: "Perspective" - This theme is about doing things differently. 90% of the world's photos are taken at eye level, standing up on level ground, and most of them are boring. This time, I want you to take your photos how no man (or woman, I'm looking at you mgkdk) has taken them before. Move around, climb things, get inside things, whatever it takes!

Timeframe: Your entry must be emailed to finalgearphoto@gmail.com on or before midnight Mountain Time, September 22nd, 2007.
Prize: Bragging rights, and a position in the Winners' Gallery!

Restrictions: Please follow the following restrictions in order to submit an eligible entry.

- Your image must be a maximum of 1000 pixels (height or width), and a minimum of 500 pixels (height or width).
- Your submission email should have the title of the image and "Contest #11" in the subject. Please title your images, as the poll must have some way to distinguish between them - I don't want half the vote options to be "Untitled."
- Also, when you email your submission, make sure you include your FinalGear screen name so I know who's submitting what!
- Only one submission per user. Please do not create multiple accounts to submit more images, as it is 1) unethical, and 2) statistically reduces your chance of winning anyway.
- Your image must NOT contain any borders or signatures or anything to identify the photo as your own. The images will be stripped of EXIF data as to make the vote 100% anonymous. Please do not mention which photo is yours, and please do not post that image anywhere until the contest is over.
- Your image must have been taken after the contest has started, I will not accept old photos that happen to match the subject. This contest is designed to promote creativity, not find out who has the biggest backlog of good photos.
- Your image may be altered in whatever imaging software you choose, without actually altering the content of the photograph. (i.e. you can alter the curves as much as you want, but you can't paste in David Hasselhoff.) Editing out distracting non-content objects such as power lines is also acceptable.
- Please keep the submissions tasteful and without gore/nudity. I like nude photography as much as the next guy, but this is a public forum. Don't submit anything you wouldn't put up in a public area.

If you have any comments or suggestions about the rules of the FinalGear contests, please voice them in the appropriate forum, or in this thread if you want.

When submitting your image, feel free to suggest a topic for the next contest!

Good luck, and have fun!


Deadline has been extended to Sunday, September 30th.

Interesting theme which leaves a wide variety of shots. I'm very much looking forward to see the entries for this contest!

gah i keep meaning to do these and completely forget

perspective sounds good, though where i live i probably wouldnt reccommend climbing inside things unless you want to die lol!. probably get crushed, gassed or incinerated by molten steel or something.

Not to excuse myself for not reading correctly, but doesn't the contests usually end on sundays?
I just went out to take a few shots (didn't have time before, new job and all) you still want it :)

Usually, but I decided to try ending it on a Saturday so I could make the voting/previous winner threads on the Sunday.

I'm going to extend the deadline until next Sunday, hopefully that will generate some entries.
