NOTE: This contest will be for the month of October.


Submit up to three photos of digital photographs of some of your best photos related to Fall (Autumn) time of the year. This is an open category and can include a variety of styles of photography - people, places, things which provide a sense of the Fall (Autumn) season in some way.

For this particular competition, the photos do not have a time limit on when they have been taken. Photos entered can be from years ago, as well as more recently. They just need to be posted in this thread by the end of the competition to be counted within this contest. 

Images must be posted here in this forum thread and be owned legally by the contributing member. Please also submit information about where the photo was taken along with some brief details. 

The photograph should be interesting and draw the individual into the scene! We look forward to seeing your photographs!


Judging will consider different criteria including, but not limited to, creativity, relevance to the category, and photo quality. Judging will occur when the contest ends and results will be posted in the forums as soon as possible.
