Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Mandatory Procrastination"

Description
:Photos of any subject, but must be taken no earlier than 8:00 pm Farkistan Time, Tuesday, Dec 13, 2011.


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 as possible either digitally in-camera or in your image editor during post-processing. No selectively applied digital effects! 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.

To have your photo website listed on the Farktography home page, please send your Fark username and url to admin(at)farktography.net and we'll get you up forthwith. (also, indicate if you're willing to share your photographs for use as source images in PhotoShop contests)

- Drop by the Farktography Forum (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

- Stats can be found here.

I couldn't think of anything last night, which means this contest became "take your camera to work day". Luckily the main building has this big electric tree out front.

This is sort of an arty farty, abstract type photo. I normally wouldn't have captured this, but since I was walking around with camera in hand ... way to broaden my horizons and junk, Farktography ;)

This was a tough challenge, one of the hardest parts was selecting three entries without having at least a day to choose. B-sides here. (new window)

Found this guy near the Kona marina. In the effort to get the shot, I waded out a little, and when I bent over to roll up my pants, my external flash (which I had wedged firmly into my cleavage, waiting to be needed) fell in to the Pacific Ocean. :-(
