    The theme is, Flowers in an Abstract Art Form. Please, don't just go out in your gardens and think "oh, there’s a flower" and quickly take a picture of it. Explore it from all angles; try using a very narrow depth of field, look for punchy colours, etc. Good luck everyone!

    Rules:
    Playing this tournament is simple:

    A tournament involves 10 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 ten 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.

    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 ten 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 1024x768
    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.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but both Vroom_Skies and myself can still use these images as long as:

    ... they DIDN'T win in a previous competition.

    ^^Agreed^^

    However, I've won a flower tourny before lol.
    Honestly I don't remember if this was the shot, but I don't have a problem changing it.

    Dang...I've been living by the wrong rules my entire stay! oh noes :p Though I still think you should only be able to use one picture only one time. But that's just me...

    I second that because the spirit of the tourny isn't to win, but to show your best pictures :p

    That IS my best flower picture from lat year. If I were to go out and take a picture of a flower... well... I'd find nothing to photograph...

    Bleh, why not... I had my Panasonic handy so I ran outside and snapped a picture of the local Dogwoods. It didn't do quite what I'd hoped it would, so not as abstract as I wanted. Heh, but I'm tired (and lazy) and don't feel like trying more :p
