    Photo Contest Grand Opening week 2 spread the word

    Topic: "Free for All"

    1. All challenges close at 12 noon (24:00 hours) Central Standard Time on April 6th, and will be noted with a "Time's up!" post within the thread.
    2. Please use the challenge as a motive to take a new photograph rather than using a photograph that you have taken in the past.
    3. Challenges are open to everyone, have fun!!
    4. Though not required, commenting on other peoples pictures is encouraged.
    5. Only one image per participant so please choose the image carefully.
    6. Any posts with images taken before the commencement of the challenge will not be included in the poll.
    7. For photos to be eligible they must be taken between Friday April 3rd and Monday April 6th.
    8. Ensure dates and times on your camera are correct.

    I look forward to seeing many contributors, remember this is to encourage all photographers to take a shot of the subject rather than post a photo taken in the past.

    Now, everyone tell 3 people, and have those 3 people tell 3 people who will each tell 3 people... :)

    By "Free for all" I mean, virtually any photograph of any model will be accepted, in case you were wondering. [​IMG]

    OMG, attack of the 2 year old! As I was taking the photo, a mysterious hand reached up and grabbed a nearby fuel truck.

    Mr. Train's entry

    Let these guys loose on the layout and it becomes a real "Free for All"
    [​IMG]

    Not a lot of things to photograph on my layout, so I thought I would throw in some thing a little whimsical. I see a lot of good photos already in so may the best photo win.

    I will write a little tutorial on how to embed images for everyone who wants to know how. I think we might include it in future contest's rules post.

    Great stuff, keep them coming!

    Hmm. That's how I embedded it the first time. It showed up then, and shows up for me now too.
