Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Impact Statement"

: Photos that show the aftermath of something that has happened recently. Examples: A debris-strewn field after a rally/concert, a burned out husk of a building. "Something that has happened recently" must be obvious. Beach? No. Burned logs, empty beer cans and footprints on a beach. Yes.

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. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true 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.

after the Halloween Blizzard 2011. 60 trees damaged in my yard, and I was not even hard hit compared to a lot of people.

If you were sitting in this chair when the tree came down, you'd have been totally safe.

I'm not sure how this happened, I just know I came upon it while they were loading the driver into the ambulance.

Love to see all the different ways you folks captured your various impacts--well done as always!

This doesn't happen often--results are usually closer than this even at this point--but I think it's fair to say that spinach gunk has this pretty well wrapped up!  Congrats on a 1-2 punch with first and second (a first win for spinach gunk, btw!), and to Yugoboy for taking third!

See everyone next week for "Old Man Winter 2"!
