Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Wallpaper This II"

Description
: Shoot a photograph specifically to be used as computer wallpaper.

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. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true 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 Farktography.net (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Stats can be found here.

This is one of precious few times I've thought about wallpaper potential when taking a photo. And oddly enough, it's been my wallpaper ever since. Taken from my front yard in January of last year.

I took this in Venice as a wallpaper. It makes me dizzy, but if anyone wants a larger size to try it out, just click.

This is currently my phone Wallpaper. I took it when I was preparing cabbage and realized that it didn't really get wet when I was washing it.

1/3 - Went upriver to Orofino, ID, today to have coffee with a friend at her coffee house. I stopped along the river on the way back to shoot a few pix of Dworshak Dam (the concrete cork in the background, holding back the North Fork of the Clearwater River), and the fish hatcheries in Ahsahka (pretty much pronounced like it looks) :D
