    General Photography Competition #234

    Hello everyone, here is the restart of UCP's photography competition. For the General Photography Competition I will not be making any changes, as we've had one year old pictures allowed to be entered, so no need to extend that. Still, note that the competitions will now be moving once in two weeks instead of once in a week.

    Rules

    The deadline is Sunday, July 28 at 11:59 PM EST.
    The photograph can contain any non-automotive image (other than adulterous material).
    The proposed picture must be your own and not found on the internet.
    The photograph must be attached using the UCP system. Any picture not attached using the UCP system will not be in the voting thread.
    Your image may be up to 800 pixels wide or tall.
    Photograph may contain post-processing editing.
    It is preferred that you state enhancements made, but not necessary.
    It is preferred that you state the camera settings used, but not necessary.
    The photograph must be taken no earlier than one year before start date.
    Each photographer cannot vote for himself, they must vote for the others.
    Any users who enter and vote for themselves automatically receive a 2 week penalty from the competition and all votes previously given to his/her photo are removed.

    Just curious, why is the general photography contest deadline within 1 year and the automotive contest within 6 months?

    Here's my submission.

    Haha, after all these years I still haven't figured out a way to embed the photo within the post other than the attachment system.

    I hope someone can do that for me when the photo contest starts.

    Edit- No edits, but it has been cropped from a larger photo.



    If anyone wants a larger photo, I have it on my flickr.

    We've had a 1 year and 4 months deadline previously, so I went on to change Automotive to 6 months and just left General with 1 year...

    As for embedding, use a standard photo embedding feature and right click on your uploaded picture in 'Manage Attachments' menu to get the picture's URL.

    Okay, cool!

    Thanks for the tip, I figured it out.
