CLOSED CONTEST: **WATER** Completed

AJ Franklin is a group administrator AJ Franklin says:

The Challenge:

WATER...pools, lakes, droplets, dew, in a glass, in a squirt, a landscape, at night! No visible, recognizable (like relatives or friends) people...no pets... but ducks or other aquatic life welcome. What can you do with WATER?!?

This contest will have a lot of entries so post early. In the event of ties the earliest "postmark" (Entry number) will win! Contest ends 0100 GMT--9PM CST Friday Night, Ballot Box opens Saturday morning. Winners announced after 0100 GMT Sunday evening!

There will be 3 winners and two honorable mentions. HELLUVA SHOT!! contest rules apply: Post a small picture--but with one difference...you can hedge your bet and post TWO pictures in this contest. Post each picture in its own post so it has its own "Entry #." (Could someone be the first multiple winner in HELLUVA SHOT!!??)

Good luck!

(Special thanks to Bec Thomas (Duvina), an ADMIN with almost unlimited creative ability)

"How To" Post to 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!
9. TWO ENTRIES per member in this WATER contest!

All ties will be determined by the EARLIEST ENTRY NUMBER

HELLUVA SHOT!!

This probably was a blue day to me, and I was feeling so lone, the evening was perfect to go for a walk, but too much cars noise so I went deeper the woods and well just sitting there for a while I took some pictures here is one.
