Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "A Shore Thing"

: Pictures from the beach or at least the water's edge.

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.

A lone swimmer made it out to a rock to look over the ocean. Outside Kenting, Taiwan.
The aqua look is thanks to adjusting the tint-level on my white-balance. It usually makes it look more green, but the deep blue in the picture held through to give it a moldy-aqua look that I ended up liking.
