Welcome to the Photography Contest!

Here you submit photos you've taken and users vote on which photo they like the best!

 

Submission deadline: September 29th

This time, the theme is: Botanical

 

As fall creeps up on us and we anticipate the changing colors of the leaves, let's appreciate the beauty of plant life in any season!

 

Submissions:

Ruby Eyes' Cosmos Flowers
Sh20000sh's Baby Cactus
XDLugia's Dried Flower
Hedy's Cornflowers
Lagie's Banyan Tree
CrazyChess's Flowers in the Park
Lovecats99's Hairy Flowers
Water_angel's Flowers from the Botanical Garden
Alectrona's Forsythia
 

Rules

- One entry per person.

- Picture has to be made by yourself and can't be just a reproduction of someone's work. If someone else's work is in the picture, there needs to be something extra.

- No manipulation besides basic photo adjustments (contrast, exposure, cropping, color balance, lighting, etc.).

- No text or framing in the photo. A signature/watermark is just fine, but it's preferable if you don't have "O Hai Eye Hav3 T3XT" (or something similar) present in the photo.

- When voting, please don't select your own image. This will ensure fairness.

- You are free to submit an old photo; you don't need to take a new one just for this competition.

- Winner hosts the next contest.

I took this photo out of botanical interest, actually. This bush was growing large and strong and all green all summer long, 2 years ago, and only by the end of October it started growing buds! I've never seen this flower, so I took this photo to ask what it may be:

This was one of the better images I've taken. The flowers in my home were drying out, but they were still pretty interesting despite that.

@Ruby Eyes I don't know if you have identified your flower yet or not, but if not, it's some type of cosmos! I have them growing in my garden every year, they grow very tall and bloom late in the summer/fall. Very pretty! 

 

Here's my entry, taken yesterday in the said garden. The cornflowers are still in bloom:

Yellow on yellow! I don't know what these are, but there was a big bush of them near where I used to live.
