Welcome to Farktography!
This Week's Theme: "Lakes"

: Lakes, ponds, puddles, and your bathtub only. No rivers, streams, waterfalls or oceans need apply (unless connected to a lake).

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.

Moonset, there is a double reflection of the moon from the double pained window, the more impressive fact is this was taken autonomously with a computer system I hardened for extreme temperatures and control from 1300 miles away. The temperture this day was below zero Fahrenheit if I remember correctly.

Gorgeous images, Farktographers--thank you as always!  I'd like to take a moment to welcome our Farktography First Timers: medelman, Sio, and Torion! as well as send a warm welcome back to some folks we hadn't seen in awhile: adanacot, andynz81, gretzkyscores, heypete, Tom_Slick, and Trapped87.  Hope to see all of you back next week!

Results aren't final until the thread closes, but at this point, congrats to top finishers, Ranger Joe, swampa2, and ravnostic!  Final winner will see their enemies driven before them and hear the lamentations of their women at and in the Fark Farktography Forum after the thread closes.  Ok maybe not, but they'll definitely receive much glory and righteousness.

See everyone next week for "Software Hootenanny 3"!
