Theme: "heat" - dunno about you folks, but down here in socal, it's hot. if any of you guys are in texas or somewhere hotter--sucks for you. so let's whine it out with photos. Go out there, take the brunt of the sun, and show us what you've got to best portray "heat."

Timeframe: Your entry must be emailed to on or before midnight Mountain Time August 5th, 2006.

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!

Hmmm, cold and cloudy :think:

*goes to turn on the oven* :mrgreen:
I'm from Norway. We have glaciers, so this can be hard :lol:

Maybe irony will do
I think i'll join this one.. but if i do make the final cut, can the fact that i'm using the WORST camera in the WORLD be accounted for? :lol:
doesn't matter how crappy your camera is. :p

it could be ironic, as long as it somehow, "portrays" heat.

now if it's the neighbor's dog mating, or even your dog, for that matter....i'm not so sure if i'll actually post it as a "valid" entry...
Sure, but it's not hot in Denmark every day of the summer ;) and I'm going on a little trip this weekend and may borrow a 350D :D
lol whoster, give us time!!!!

I am thinking what I should do about heat.
Question about a technicality.

I snapped a photo I'm considering using, right around the time of the posting of the original thread. I had no knowledge of this contest subject at the time the photo was taken, and as the clock ticks, the photo may have been taken before the original thread was started.

Does this disqualify my image?
wintermute, can you email me an unaltered copy of the original so i can check the exif data? ( the.whoster (at) )
it was friggin hot last weekend, and _now_ you're telling me? :x
Well it was raining this last weekend so....
I'll try to get something before the deadline though
