    This is fairly open-ended. As usual...

    Rules:
    Playing this tournament is simple:

    A tournament involves 11 different members max.
    The winner of the last tournament will give a theme, and those who want to participate will post their pictures (Only one per person). Please, No more than eleven participants total.

    When all participants have entered their picture in the tournament (please submit a link along with your picture), I will then create another thread to vote on the pictures via a poll. Located in the Off Topic sub forum.

    New Rules:
    - No spot saving; you will only be counted if you have a picture submitted.
    - Only one picture may be posted at a time, if you decide to change it, please edit the original post.
    - No posting an image that has previously won a competition.

    So in brief:
    - Users who wish to participate please post your image within this thread followed by a link to the image source.
    - After eleven participants have entered the tournament, a second thread will be made with a poll to vote on the pictures.
    - If entering a slightly computer manipulated photo, please post the original along with it so users who are voting can see the difference.

    Winners will simply be the one who gets the most votes. He/she will then create another thread in which they propose a different theme for the next tournament.

    Please resize your pictures to no larger than 1280 x 1024.
    This tournament will have 4 days of voting.

    You are permitted to change your image but if you could just change the URL in your original post and leave an edited comment with it.

    End of the road, I think it's pretty self explanatory.

    I think it qualifies as end of the road because you get to a point in life and you just want to 'redo' it all, or start over again.

    If each of you could post why you think it qualifies as "end of the road", that'd be great! Just remember--it should be clear to anyone, even those who weren't there with you or don't know the geography of your shot.

    When you say the "end of the road" what do you mean exactly. Do you mean like there is no where to go kinda thing?

    I dunno, I thought mine was pretty obvious, but you can see that after the rock on the lower right is a huge drop, meaning end of the road, son. Unless you'd like to jump off, which I wouldn't recommend

    Pretty much the literal definition therof. Was so much of an end of the road, that on the way to it, the "road' decided to slam my muffler to pieces and that's why its sagging since a couple of the brackets got smashed to bits.

    There are quite a few entries that I'm not particularly happy about, but I'll let the voters decide. I believe the ones with a chance of winning fit the terms very well :).

    I've taken mine out, no feedback on whether it was fitting for the theme or not.

    It's your call Jet, you have to let us know which ones you approve or disapprove of.

    Not really sure, I just threw it up. I guess you could say that is the end. If you don't know there is more road then that would be the end.
    :D:rolleyes:
