Welcome to the Photography Contest!

Welcome back for another round of the DC Photography contest, come and show us what you've got! 

 

This time, the theme is: Traditions


Something traditional from years past, or a tradition adapted for this unconventional year.

 

Submission deadline: December 26

 

Voting deadline: January 2

 

Rules:

- One entry per person.

- A photograph is defined as an image made using a camera or phone camera

- Screenshots are not allowed

- 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.

WELL - we ALWAYS go to a Christmas market. It's a tradition. This year we can't - but on our wedding anniversary last year in Münster (Germany, not Ireland): I LOVE star lights....

I do a Lego display on my dining table most years. Last year I added a second bit on the side.

Christmas doesn't have that much traditional meaning in this part of world, but I have something in this November.

Well, the topic is traditions, not christmas XD

I'm still looking for a suitable scene to take a photo of ... I sadly never took any pictures back when my mother was still there to take care of traditions of all sorts.

Yes indeed - we have a couple of family traditions which I might substitute, but as they are at other times of year I have to find a photo as I can't take one !...

 This has become a birthday tradition for my friends and I. We meet at Friendly's for ice cream and silliness!

Nope, it doesn't have to be Christmas related or even holiday related, as long as it's something traditional!

Every year, we have a post comic con ramen on the sunday (well not a typical tradition, but for us it is, even if I don't go to the CC, I still join my friends for the ramen)

Just so everyone knows, I'm in an area that's about to get some intense wind and might lose power (you know it's bad when you get an alert from the power company). I'm still planning to stick to the schedule in the first post, if I can. If my power is out at that time, then I will close the entries and put up the poll when I'm back online.

Merry Christmas, everyone! 🎄

Thank you! So far so good, so a reminder that tomorrow is the last day for entries, unless something awful happens here! :D

Glad you got through without losing power. Is the danger of that over now?

Yes! We were expecting a storm with huge gusts of wind, but I got really lucky and the worst of it missed me. Places nearby (including sections of my town) lost power, but I think everyone has it back now. The weather has been pretty crazy for the past few days, but I'm not expecting else that should be able to knock out power. I think it's finally settling down. 🤞

We've had loads of wind - but we always do; forecasts like this amuse us.... All our massive trees lean rather dramatically ! Glad you are safe.

Congrats to this round's winner, @Fuzzbucket!

I'm going to send you a cookie with a terribly drawn camera as a prize. :lol:

(Poll will automatically close at midnight because I forgot to set it up before, oops.)
