    Rules (Copied from the first thread)

    #1 You may submit only one photo per contest.

    #2 The contest runs for exactly one week, from the time stamped on the first post in the thread (this will be made by the winner of the previous week's contest).

    #3 Please refrain from commenting on the photos submitted in the contest. I think that a good photograph is one that can appeal to someone who may not know much about the technical aspects of photography. I think it would be best if the judge isn't swayed by someone else's opinion of the photograph.

    The judge will decide his/her favorite at the end of the week, place a post listing it and a short synopsis of why he/she chose that photo. The winner is then responsible for starting a new thread containing a new contest and topic which again will run for exactly one week.

    This week's theme is A New Beginning

    A new day, a new set.

    Nothing special done to this, just taken with my p&s in the early morning.

    Big Sister

    Am I really the first to post a pregnancy shot? Well, I hope it's not cliche.

    What a weird coincidence. The picture I put up yesterday is from the Negev.

    Hey all,

    Looking forward to seeing what the next theme will be!

    Depending on where you are in the world depends when it will end.

    it runs for one week from the date stamp on the thread starter.
    For me that means it ended on Thursday night at 10:42pm.

    No, sorry guys, I died.

    Or, more like college has once again consumed my life.

    Anyways, apearlman is the clear winner. Besides the technicalities of the shot, his fit the conceptual basis of the contest the best, in my opinion. It is a new beginning for not only the mother and the soon-to-be-born child, but for the little girl as well, as her life changes in a rude way, with her parents being more tired, stressed and having time taken away by the new child. Yet, she has a new beginning in a newly redefined family as one of two children and as a sister.
