Photography: Take A Photo Of A Sport Related Item
Go out there and take a photo of a Sport Related Item. Like a golf ball sitting on the green with the flag out of focus in the background. Anything to do with sport even a pair of football(soccer) shoes sitting next to each other with mud on them.


1: Must be a recognized sport (Car Racing and Fishing inclusive).
2: Try to keep any humans/animals OUT of the picture as its of a Sport Related Item not a sport itself.
3: Keep any photoshop/editing to a minimum (preferably none to give everyone a fair chance)


One Entry Per Person: You can only submit one entry per contest. If you submit two, only the older one will be voted on. If you want to change your entry, EDIT YOUR POST!
No Copying: Do not copy another person's work! If the contest admin decides that you copied anther entry, you'll be disqualified from this round.
Disputes: If you have a problem, such as someone else copying you, PM the contest admin for this round, NOT the Frihost staff.
Time Limit: You have 30 days from the date (and time) of this post to submit an entry. Late entries cannot be added in: no exceptions.
Voting: Your entry will be voted on for 15 days from the date of the next contest's first post. You may vote if you entered, but vote for the best, even if it isn't your own.
Ties: If two entries are tied for an award, they split the frih$ prize and the earlier entry gets any prize that cannot be split up.
No Admin Entries: The contest admin for this round may not participate because his/her role in choosing the type and settling disputes could be abused.
Image Size: If your entry includes an image larger than 600x800, post a link (or thumbnail link) to it, not the image itself. Smaller images should always be posted in-line.
Rule Breaking: Failure to follow the above rules might disqualify you from this round of the contest.

I think the theme might pair up nicely with the blizzard I just got... Just have to figure out how.

Is that really a sport?

And what in the world would be a blizzard streaking-related item? Confused
speeDemon

What kind of blizzard was it? Am interested as we have had some very unusual extreme wind and thunderstorms in the Middle East. Particularly the pelting rain was totally out of character.
speeDemon
Wow! no one posted before me?

Looks like speeDemon really is the speed demon!!!

A perfectly normal one!
When there's no wind here, people comment on how strange it is.

My entry ^.^

I like the way they seem to be forlornly waiting to be used again...
Though I don't suppose inanimate objects get depressed.

I have another,but the pixel rate is rubbish,the one i had was 8mp, my other is only 2mp,and theres a huge difference in quality. I wouldn't just enter a picture for the sake of entering,if i didn't think it was any good.

I think its been extended till the end of May,though without it being made into a featured discussion,and being hampered by its "sticky" status,i am not sure if any more entries will come in.

I think we should still carry on next month with the next contest however.
Flakky
I think the problem is that many people are forced to stop whatever they are doing right now on the internet in order to take a picture. And the internet is interesting, ain't it? Maybe posting your computer is a better solution Smile
speeDemon
hey guys, I dont think I will be able to take the july spot, so just fill it in... or is the competition finished.. as in over forever..??
speeDemon
so what exactly happened about all this??
Xelphir

Only if we can get it on featured discussions. Otherwise, there will never be enough participation.

If this contest is not active, then shouldn't this post be destickied (Couldn't find an appropriate word ;-p)?

This really should be made into a featured discussion. It has very good potential; so count me in for upcoming rounds. Very Happy

Well, if it was made into a featured discussion, there might actually be more rounds... But hiding in the stickies of the contest forum just doesn't work out well.
