Ha! I thought of winter too when I read the topic title, but then I quickly sent that thought back to north pole where it belongs. I'd rather chill out some place hot.

I guess the site backup after our hack was before I'd posted my submission so here it is again.

My wife chilling out on her iPhone.

would like to suggest to include the link of the previous contest in every subject/rule post set by the most recent winner.

this will definitely help navigating back in time throughout the contest history (here-on-after of course)

cheers

I guess it falls to the second place person from last weeks contest. As I recall it was NeGRit0. But I think you have 48 hours to post results so no panic just yet.

Let's hope twitch comes back but maybe we can ask NeGRit0 if twitch doesn't come back tomorrow??

What do you think?

just curious, do the rules allow changes to the orientation of the submissions? eg from landscape to portrait of the same already submitted photo, or is it considered a new photo altogether so it is rejected/disqualified/whatever

Personally I would say you have to decide on orientation before submission. Any changes to a photo would make it a different picture.

I certainly agree but I would really love a poll to see how people respond to this question

to clarify : this would show how many people like to abide to strict rules, and how many prefer to bend them, since semantically, it is the same picture.

Thanks to all who submitted. I will just announce the top 3 in the interests of letting the next contest start sooner rather than later.

3rd themumu. Nice fisheye picture and it fits the theme well. Composition is a little messy but I guess with a fisheye it’s very hard to have a clean image with no unnecessary elements.

2nd jkramerbob. Excellent picture, love the colour and the crop, love the light shining through the bottle neck. Only point of concern were the sensor spots. It was very close to winning this week.

1st Cheese & Apple. Beautiful picture. Fits theme in more ways than one. Very nice composition, the curve of the person matches the shoreline and doesn’t merge. I like the shallow DOF, it makes my eye wander through the photo. Congratulations!
