Weekly Photo Contest (March 1st-8th) Rules: #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. 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 decide 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 again will run for exactly one week. This week's theme is OPTIMISM. I encourage you to interpret it broadly, as I will too. I choose this theme because I've recently felt the world provides an avalanche of bad news, and I want to look at photos that make me feel good. Show me some optimism! Good luck!
