    Oh the Horror!

    After having Godzilla stomping through Hoover Dam last week and leading up to Halloween season let us see your best horror shots. It doesn't have to be a movie monster or Halloween costume, just something that makes you say :eek:. Do you shoot closeup macro shots of spiders? Perhaps a slice of toast butter side down on the floor. Maybe your whiskey glass is empty.

    Most of all have fun with it.

    • The photographs must be of your own creation.

    • Explore, get creative and have fun with it.

    • You may only submit one photo per weekly contest round. (Make that one before and after set, not one photo)

    • Please do not comment on any photos until after the judging has taken place.
    (think this one has been forgotten of late!) The photo set should tell the story.

    • The contest runs for one week, starting 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 they possibly can.

    • 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).

    • Winners please update the Weekly Photo Contest Master thread

    Sorry, no examples this week but I think you get the idea. ;)

    While I have plenty of local "Carnival of Screams" photos which will explain afterwards, going to try something different for the horror theme. For the benefit of those not located in the United States, the grassy knoll (second shooter theory) and schoolbook depository building (sniper location) is the site of the assassination of President John F Kennedy.

    The ghostly imagine fits the theme.
    The model is Mrs. Diver. She definitely does not fit the theme.

    Just started an aging test with some cheap scotch. That’s a two liter oak barrel.

    Unbenannt 2.jpg It is nature, but it makes me shiver...:eek:


    Played around in the garden to test a new lense and found that apple for this weeks topic. Was not that funny to photograph it, sometimes I have a sensitive stomach. :D

    How about a mummified hand from the 17th century? The origins are not completely clear, but it probably was meant to represent the victim in a murder trial, as was customary at this time.

    Been ill this week, and I could send a picture of my afflicted area but I'd probably get banned from the internet!

    So I'll go with this one from a while back, specially for @MacRy as I know he enjoyed it!
