    Rules:

    1. You may only submit one photo per contest.

    2. The contest runs for exactly one week, from the first time stamp of 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. A good photograph is one that can appeal to someone who may not know much about the technical aspects of photography, so it would be best if the judge isn't swayed by someone else's opinion of the photograph.

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

    The theme for this contest:

    Support

    Good luck to everyone. Can't wait to see your entries! Interpret it anyway you like.

    Wasn't sure whether to submit this in last weeks competition as it moved this person but think it's more relevant here.

    Light, water (in the clouds), oxygen, food, and shelter (all from the trees) are the things necessary to support life.

    The Millau Viaduct, France

    You'd want some strong supports for this 2.5km long bridge weighing in at 36,000 tonnes and delivering up to 25,000 vehicles daily across the Tarn River in France.

    Caught this in the early morning while the clouds lingered in the valley.

    Great Photos All

    I really enjoyed looking at everyone's work and their interpretation of "Support". After looking through all the pictures, I felt that mickbab's photo of the viaduct in France should be the winner. I really liked the leading lines in the photo. The clouds passing underneath just gave it all a heavenly feeling and the repetition of the bridge supports is great.

    Honourable mention to rebrook. excellent colour and excellent selective focus. Thanks to everyone for participating. mickbab get's the honour of picking the next week's contest!

    Congrats again to mickbab!

    Not as many submissions as normal but I appreciated all the variations on the theme which was really good to see.
