Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Happy Farktography Anniversary 6"

: It's Farktography's 6th anniversary! Post your highest vote getters or favorite photos since May 2010. Prior contest entries allowed but not required; Prior entries, HDR, stacked, stitched & text-added photos eligible only if used in a contest since 5/13/10.

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.

This was from the "Five is right out" theme (the number of the subjects shall be three). It's probably the most technically difficult photo I took in the last year; a 30-second triple exposure using a flashlight to paint each stage of the transformation. It took a few hours of fiddling with the setup and procedure, plus a whole lotta sweatin and swearin, to get this. It's not perfect, but after 28 takes it was acceptable.
Besides, Elsinore said she liked it so :p
