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: Festive

 

'Tis the season to be festive!  Anything festive is welcome!

 

Submission deadline: 6th of January (end of most of the seasonal festivities!)

 

Voting deadline: 31st of January

 

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.

- Hosts may re-use previous themes that have not been used in the last 10 contests.

 

Ping list of people who have competed in the past, which should help them see when there's a new thread if they want to join in: please ask if you want your name added or removed:

I don't really decorate the house for Christmas so here's a picture of the giant Christmas tree in town:

'Meri Kirihimete' is Maori for Merry Christmas in case you were wondering

Christmas tree at work with the store's 2 kitties (surprisingly they don't care about the tree other than sleeping under it). I work in a petstore and the tree is decorated with dog and cat toys

I had a really hard time deciding, but this one is quite festive!

 

This is Marble House, a historic mansion in Newport, RI, taken in December 2019.
