Weekly Photo Contest - Oct 30 - Nov 6 (Theme: Your Take On The Icons)

Welcome to this week's photo contest!

Theme: Your Take On The Icons

Rules:

1. You may only submit one photo per contest.

2. Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.

3. The contest runs for exactly one week, starting NOW! (see time/date stamp at the start of this thread)

4. At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible. (Judge has 24 hours to make decision)

5. The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme)

Everyone has their favorite icon to take pictures of. It may be a local statue or may be a national monument. Even though these icons have been photographed millions of times, I still enjoy seeing new creative views and classic views.

Machu Picchu. Legend has it that archaeologists planted this tree so celebrities would stop landing at the site with their helicopters.

Your picture reminded me a lot of one that is actually featured on Disney's official website. However, I like your nighttime version a lot more. Disney theme parks and NYC (IMO) have got to be the two most beautiful places to photograph.

Thumb resize.

Twin Towers

The Twin Towers, once icons of growth and prosperity. Now, a remembrance of so many lives lost in a heartless and senseless act of hatred.
