Theme: "Living Where You Live" - People gotta live somewhere. Some people live to take pictures. Sometimes, you just have to combine the two. This contest is about shooting the environment you live in, whether it be urban or rural, it's about communities. It's about atmosphere, people, places, the lot. Get out there and shoot some street!

Timeframe: Your entry must be emailed to finalgearphoto@gmail.com on or before midnight Mountain Time, October 25th, 2008.
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 #13" 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!

The idea is to show the community environment you live in, be it a farm, town, or city. The idea is to express how people live/function/interact in your area.

DHCP shit the bed today, work is a madhouse. Sorry guys, it looks like it won't be ready until after my exam on Thursday. :(

On a side note, I'm not entirely certain that people got the gist of what the assignment's theme was.
