Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Happy Farktography Anniversary 7"

: It's Farktography's 7th anniversary! Post your highest vote getters or favorite photos since May 2011. Prior contest entries allowed but not required; Prior entries, HDR, stacked, stitched, and text-added photos eligible only if used in a contest since 5/09/11.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:

- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.

Please note:

The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. HDR, stitching, or otherwise combining exposures in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.

- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

- Stats can be found here.

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

Title:Breakfast of Champions
Quote:Now the heat was all gone, too - into outer space, Trout supposed. It had boiled
water, and the steam had made steel windmills whiz around and around. The windmills
had made rotors in generators whiz around and around. America was jazzed with
electricity for a while.

For "Curves", I ended up shooting a bunch of colorful shots using compact discs, but only entered one. Since that contest was fairly recent, I figured I'd throw in a "b-side" ... one of the images from that set that I didn't enter, but I like it anyway (hope you do too).
