CLOSED **CONTEST** Challenge: A photo of "A THING I LOVE".

AJ Franklin is a group administrator AJ Franklin says:

Starting now, Monday morning, November 13, we begin a new photo contest. The title is " A Thing I love." This can be any thing, or animal, or toy, or even a nice day or a pretty bug (if you love pretty bugs!), landscapes statues etc etc--but not a person. (Strangers sitting on a park bench, for instance, would be fine while your girl/boyfriend wife/husband or kids would not. That's the challenge... The rules are the same as for our last contest. You can read them in the topic for the last contest.

Please post SMALL size photos. Other sizes will not be included in the contest. One photo per member. One vote per member.

The CONTEST is officially OPEN for Entries! Good Luck!

(There seems to be some confusion about the rules of the contest. So instead of asking anyone to go back to the last contest and look at them, I will post them again:
We will start a new String for the contest. We will take entries (Small size) from when the string is posted for five days. We will lock the string after five days, at 9 PM PST. A half-day for everyone to look at the pictures and comment on them (If you vote for a picture, please comment on it--and comment on any other pictures in the contest as well.) Voting for the rest of the week in a different string called "The Ballot Box." All voters will need to enter there is a "reply to this topic" and "I choose #??" One vote per member.

After the rest of the week goes by, we will count the votes, lock the ballot box string, and post a new topic THE TOP THREE! Then members can comment on those pictures if they wish.
Contest ends Friday night, 9:00PM PST. Ballot Box opens Saturday morning; Closes Sunday 5:00PM PST, Winners Announced.
Monday Morning NEW CONTEST announced.
(Inviting your entire contact list to join and vote for your picture is a secret strategy of some Flickr'ites...don't tell anyone!)
Thank you all! *Alan*

UPDATE: "HOW TO" put your picture in the contest!
1. go to the photo's page in your own photostream
2. Above the photo, find the button "All Sizes" and click it
3. When the large photo opens look at the sizes available, and click on "small" size.
4. Below the small size photo will be two lines of HTML code. Choose the biggest line (Line 1) and highlight with the mouse--
5. Cntl+C to copy the text in the HTML box
6. Return to the contest page and open the discussion for the contest; (the page you are on now as you read this) go to the last item on the bottom of the list and you will see a box to add your own comments.
7. Put the cursor in that box and press Cntl+V to paste the HTML code directly into the comment box.
8. Click "SAVE" and you have your picture, in the correct small size, in the contest!

Entry #1...Not just a pretty landscape shot. It represents what I love doing more than anything else which is camping in the mountains. This is the view from my tent one evening taken from my sleeping bag.

Entry #9

Music is what I love. I've been playing Classical Guitar for 21 years and I play on average about 4 hours a day. This is an exerpt from my favourite piece, Bach's Chaconne. It is more than worthy of being photographed.

The Beautiful Language.

I love making quilts. My parents loved the elephants in Africa so I made this for them. They're in their mid-80's and they have it hanging above their bed.
