Theme: "Spring" - It's been a long winter, so I'm sure we're all itching to get out and take some pictures in the newfound weather. Hence, this contest is about representing the idea of "spring" in your area of the world, be it the flora, the people, the clothes, the activities, whatever. Just get out there and take some great shots! (Note: It's not springtime all over the world, obviously, the idea is more to capture the current season in your area)

Timeframe: Your entry must be emailed to on or before midnight Mountain Time, May 20th, 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 #8" 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!

- Your submission email should have the title of the image and "Contest #7" in the subject.

you mean #8?
Hey, i know what you all mean, down here in Florida we have 3 seasons. Wet, dry, and cold. And sometimes a spin cycle during the summer hurrricanes.
This looks really fun. I can't wait to take some pics! - I finally got around to editing this today... took it in February. Yay for fog!

Just sent mine in :D
Gah - missed the deadline. Been offline for a few days and got a photo I liked... :(

Next time.
I'd also like to remind everyone about the NO BORDERS OR SIGNATURES rule. A full third of this round;s entries had borders, which I've removed for the voting.
