This is the October 2011 THEMED Picture of the Month contest.

Theme of the month: WATER


Go here for the regular monthly photo contest

How to submit an image?

Just add a geeklist item, where it asks for a ImageID add the number of your photo there. Use [imageid=xxxxxx medium] in the body of the List Entry, where "xxxxxx" is the ImageID number, to show the image at a reasonable size as that helps people judge your image better. If you have questions please geekmail me and I will help.

Rules:
1) You can only submit a single entry with only one image in it.

2) The image has to be one of your own. If you know of any great images that fit the theme perfectly, ask the users who submitted them to enter them here themselves.

3) The image may have been uploaded ANY TIME, but if the image was uploaded during the month in question you will receive 10 BONUS thumbs (calculated at the end of the month). The regular monthly contest will not implement this rule.

4) Submitted images MUST NOT have won a prize in any previous monthly photo contest and MUST NOT be submitted to the current regular monthly contest.

5) Images from your User Gallery are eligible, and images from any other Gallery.

6) Users may vote for (give a thumb up to) as many entries as they wish.

7) The winner will be declared when the next month's list goes up.

8) In case of a tie, the prize will be split equally among all the tied people.

9) I will randomly reorder this list so that the first-come first-thumbed effect is lessened.

10) There is no Hall of Fame for the themed contest, but winners will be posted on the regular winner's geeklist (see below).


Prizes:
First place: 20 + whatever tips this list and the regular monthly list receive.

PS- Want to be involved in in photo contests throughout the year or want to see all of the winners of previous years?
Then make sure you subscribe to this GeekList.

GOOD LUCK!

Sometimes you have a short of reading the rules.
Well holiday's are the solutions.
Can't find a better place than by the swimming-pool

As per Mark's comment below, I'll go ahead and enter this photo. This is a close-up of a well from which water flows in canals all over the board in the game of Aquadukt.

They explained everything in detail and at great length. After they finished I sat, despondent, contemplating a bleak and empty future. "I’m glad you’re depressed" said one. "It means you’ve understood the situation.”

6. Board Game: Oltre Mare [Average Rating:6.66 Overall Rank:1396]
Real water! Accept nothing less! [grin]

Presenting ... The Puddle of Oltre Mare



Yep, I put my game components in real water! And the player boat from Oltre Mare even floats! View in large for best results. I particularly love the effect of the water droplets on the sail, and the ship's reflection on the water.

Photo uploaded this month. This contest inspired my 13 year old daughter to help me come up with some great ideas for some water themed photos, including this one. I've posted some more details about our adventures and the other pictures we took as a general comment at the bottom of the list.

In the confusion and the aftermath you are my signal fire. Hold me close, 'cause I need you to guide me to safety. The only resolution and the only joy is the faint spark of forgiveness in your eyes, I don't want to wait forever...
