Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Windmills"

Description
: Old ones, new ones, big ones, little ones, metal ones, wood ones: photograph windmills.

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.


Ideally, your photograph should be presented as taken with as little alteration in Photoshop or other image editing programs as possible. No removal or addition of image elements, no spot treatments, and no HDR images, please.

With few exceptions (red-eye removal, sensor or scan dust removal), modifications to the original photograph must be made evenly across the image.
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 (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

- Stats can be found here.

Windmills south of Abilene TX. If you look closely to the left of the base of the largest one, you'll see something cool.

A windmill is so much more than just the spinny part. Look at all the cool stuff that comes from the water it pumps!
