    This weeks contest is about Iron.
    I'm a fan of wrought iron and will take a photo of it if I find some.
    Any thing made of Iron will do.

    The rules are as usual:

    · The photographs must be your own work.

    · 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 a week and starts now!

    · 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.

    · If the Judge is unable to complete the selection within 48 hours of the deadline for close, then a vote will be carried out to select a winner. This will be based on the number of "likes" each image has. In the event of a draw, the second place winner from the previous week will choose the tiebreaker.

    · 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).

    · Please update the Weekly Contest Master List when you post a new contest

    Coincidentally, I took this image on Friday at a local old church in the graveyard! This piece of iron work dates back to the 1850's.

    Steel is an iron and carbon alloy. Does that fit the theme?

    Wooden gate 1f resize.jpg I am not generally a fan of selective color ("colour" for those that speak the Queen's English) but it seems to me that it works here.

    EDIT: I swapped out the first post for a different version of the same image.

    This kind of stuff really gets me steamed. Surely you have more pressing things to do other than this. It's time for you to plug into what's really important.

    I am feeling an inCREASEd need for a pun of the week contest. Anyone else on board so that we can get this ironed out.

    What is IRONic and has likely got everyone steaming at this point... is my image has the most likes at time of writing! so na na nana na... :p

    EDIT: In my defence that windowsill looks nasty in my image. That is the back room in my house, next room to get renovated... hence it being in a state of needing repair.

    What a scorching retort!!! I think we all got burned by that one.
    Seriously, I hope the job comes off without any wrinkles.

    Given our history, you should have known better.
