Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Software Hootennany"

: Any and all treatments not normally allowed software-wise are allowed/encouraged for this contest: artsy filters, exposure stacking/HDR, tilt-shift, stitching, etc. NOTE: No pasting or moving subjects not in the original photo(s) like a PS contest.

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 (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

- Stats can be found here.

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

Mom was in UM Hospital dieing of breast cancer when I was calling her on my way home from Indiana. I had to stop mid-sentence and tell her, "Mom, you're not going to believe this but I just saw a piano in the forest. With a full candelabra and stool." She knew I liked taking pictures so she told me, "You have to get a photo of it for me." I had to wait a week or so before they gave me the same run. So here I am pulled over on the side of I-94, leaning out the window trying to get the shot. It was dark and rainy and I was not blocking traffic TOO much. But this is it. One of Mom's last wishes was to share a story from the road with me.
