This weeks theme - Dreams

Following AFB's theme 'Home', I'd like to see your dreams. Your wishes, (your fantasies?), your nightmares, your night ewes. Be creative.

(edit: selected persons are allowed to submit images of German photo equipment... but these will excluded from the competition )

Standard rules apply:

· 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, last week’s winner will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible.

· If the winner 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.

At my age, the Olympics are only a dream gone by...and then there is the house. (You don't want to know about the master bath - tub raised on pedestal with fireplace and wine coolers, set in a Grecian garden with exercise equipment along the walkway, half the wall a shower and the other half a sauna.) Just dream.

Actually, First place has better colors......:D Go Blue!
I went to Penn State. You are right about "Go blue" but I think you are talking about the wrong team. (Yes, I am ignoring the insignificant amount of gold in the picture.) :rolleyes:

My daughter-in-law is a Michigan grad. I had to do a lot of soul searching when they got married. :eek:

No matter.... We all know God is a Penn State fan. That's why the sky is blue and white. :D

Time's up. I will take your tests home and will grade them. I must say, boys and girls, that some of you were not paying attention during this weeks exercises. You should take an example from children like cogi0490, somepix, little apple fan boy, tizeye, akash.nu, malofx or our extra terrestrial exchange student Darmok N Jalad from Tanagra. Oh, I forgot all about little redshifted, who used 500px paper to hand in his work.

This week’s theme was difficult I guess. My other option was ‘Pests’, but who wants to look at images of snakes, mosquitoes and the neighbours children.

Here is my view on the entries:

cogi0490, Great lighting. Nice details in the floor. Does this image pop up in your nightmares? Is that a skull on the wall?

somepix, Are you on a camping trip? The last image you saw before falling asleep. It has a dreamy look.

apple fan boy, That is a beautiful dream. I would advice investing in something larger than 140mm to make your dream come true.

deep diver, If it wasn’t for the rules, you would have won…

tizeye, You dream big. I like it.

akash.nu, Getting old together. Yes, I guess that’s every couples dream. And they seem still to be having an interesting conversation too.

malofx, Am I looking at one of your dreams or do you fantasise about this place? It definitely is a place to dream about.

Darmok N Jalad, Hmmm, time to get out Freud’s Traumdeutung. Or is flying such a plane one your big wishes?

redshifted, I like this. Creative. A combination of something that looks like coming from a dream and perhaps a wish. Longing for winter to go out hiking in the snow again.

Considering the number of entries this week, it seems logical to have only two podium places

2nd place: akash.nu
1st place: redshifted

Thank you for your entries, over to you @redshifted
