Hormone Induced
Jun 21, 2005
Alberta, Canada
The Jeep of Theseus, Angry Wagon
Theme: Cold

It's gotta be winter somewhere.

Timeframe: Your entry must be emailed to on or before midnight Mountain Time, September 30th, 2009.
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 #21" 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!
i dunno, it's pretty cold here too...
Gah! Couldn't you have set this topic for December? I'd have infinite opportunities :(

Of course you come up with this topic in September - you're in Canada!
Actually, this week has been among warmest we've had all year and I hear we may have a mild winter.

I've already got two weekends planned this month where I'll at least be trying to shoot something that would suggest coldness... is suggesting coming coldness good enough? It's a seasonal thing that happens before winter.... that isn't anything to with trees... >_>
Oooohh hohohoh I got a good one :devil:
So cold here it's not going to be a problem this one :D. And i've got so much time on my hands....
*looks out the window and sees a tropical paradise*

God dammit! :lol:
Where in the hell, am I gonna find snow round here?

But since some mentioned freezers etc, I may have to break out my creativity, I'm not thinking laterally enough.

Where's mah camera? I hereby throw my hat into the mix. :D
Sheesh, throughout the time when we're supposed to have summer, it rains and rains and rains. We're finally getting our summer in September!
Dang, I hope BCS accepts late entries until mid-October when he gets around to making the voting thread for this contest :p

...'cause I didn't get anything for this :(
