    I figured since fall is my favorite season, and it's that time of year again, it'd make a great theme.

    Theme: FALL
    This can be anything you want that's fall related, pumpkins, trees changing colors, corn mazes, Halloween even!

    Rules:
    Be creative and have fun.
    You may only submit one photo per contest.
    Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.
    The contest runs for exactly one week, starting NOW! (see time/date stamp at the start of this thread.)
    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.
    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, after that it defers to 2nd place).

    Just being really picky, but do you mind adding the theme's name into the Title as well so it's easier to search it and navigate to it please? Thanks! :)

    Just to be really picky.... by Fall you mean Autumn not as in what happens when you trip in the street ? :)

    By Autumn I assume you mean the season and not the lovely lady who serves a great pint at our local drinking establishment. :)

    By season do we mean salt and/or pepper or the position of the earth in relation to the sun?

    If I was a teacher, by now you'd all be sitting in a corner each with your hands on your heads :D :p

    Cheers :)

    While I do consider that Ken's ambiguous interpretation of the term "Autumn" has merit, with so much at stake, I believe we all have an obligation, possibly even a fiduciary responsibility to our principals, to be clear and specific even at the expense of being concise.

    "Autumn, interchangeably known as fall in North America, is one of the four temperate seasons. Autumn marks the transition from summer into winter, in September (Northern Hemisphere) or March (Southern Hemisphere), when the arrival of night becomes noticeably earlier and the temperature cools considerably. One of its main features is the shedding of leaves from deciduous trees." – Wikipedia :):):)

    If you live in the UK it is marked by the rain becoming colder than in the summer months.

    After causing carnage on here, 14 posts in an no one has posted a picture yet so here is one to start us off... not the winner but a nice effort I think nonetheless.
