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.

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.
