    Must contain two things that are not suppose to be together. For example my flower and snow.

    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.

    Further 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.
    - When voting you are not allowed to vote for your own submission.

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

    Winners will simply be the one who gets the most votes (please no voting for yourself). He/she will then create another thread in which they propose a different theme for the next tournament.

    Please resize your pictures to an acceptable resolution.
    This tournament will have 5 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.

    Have fun & enjoy.

    Awesome idea!

    I'll see if I have something and I'll edit it into this post.

    I love it, but I can't find anything to use on my Flickr. I'll have to dig through my old photos when I get home.

    Pff.. it's clear. A leaf bug is not supposed to live inside a house where it can't camouflage. Maybe I missed something, lol.

    I am sure to change it in due course but here is a good idea of a paradox :)

    Not what i had in mind but I'll go with it, it is not an easy subject. If you want to take new pictures, I'll give it a week or a week and a half if you guys want :)

    What kind of thing specifically did you have in mind? You mentioned 'flower in snow' in your first post - can you come up with any more examples that we could realistically go and capture? I am struggling to think of anything. :confused:

    Yeah, I cant seem to find anything like this, well nothing special. I don't like going out and manufacturing pictures, if I take a picture its real and spontaneous :).

    It needs to have two opposite thing, if you have rain and sun that'll be fine for example.

    It's got a bit of blue sky and rain in it, haha: https://flic.kr/p/k2sLUU

    But that and the cat are the only two things I currently have that come anywhere near close...
