    Alright, were redoing this.. again.

    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.

    Nah, I have plenty of ideas.
    Members just don't seem to have photos for the prior two. I would rather have more participants instead of a "challenging" topic.

    Isn't that the whole point of it? It's competition; it isn't supposed to be easy.

    The current theme won't work either, will it. Since there's no common theme behind each photograph the judging will all be subjective to the content, and not the photography ability that was put to use taking the photograph. Hence, it not being a photography competition.

    Well the last theme was pretty hard to have/do... You either need to have a boat or a water equipment for the camera...

    I think you're de-saturating your pictures wrong.

    Desaturated was the first one. The second one involved boats and water.

    In any case, he doesn't like altering his pictures.

    Yeah. However it's limited amounts of fun when there are only a handful of entries.

    That's why you should pick categories that are more broad and common, such as:


    Action
    Aerial
    Architectural
    Automotive
    Aviation
    Candid
    Cloudscape
    Food
    Fire
    Fireworks
    Macro
    Night
    Panorama
    Soft Focus
    Street
