Theme: "Shadow" - Many photographers go to great lengths to avoid strong shadows in their images - this time, let's make them the focus of the picture. Shadows are everywhere you look, now it's your turn to make them interesting!

Timeframe: Your entry must be emailed to finalgearphoto@gmail.com on or before midnight Mountain Time 05/14.

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 #2" 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 taseful 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!

No, I think the current theme will make for some interesting photos. I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures!

Contests are open to anyone! (well, other than Carsightings, haha)
As Carsightings is now a shadow on the forum if someone shoot him I think he will be in good position to win... :lol: :lol:

Not easy subject...

Sounds tough, but I'm in - if I get anything that is!

i actually really like your choice of topics yet. its something else to the usual topics in these contest.
but you could mix in some easier assignments at times.

Don't change anything - either my photo's good and will be voted for that reason or I'll have to improve my work next time.

Just to be sure, but midnight Mountain Time would be about 45 minutes earlier than I posted this right :|
