I have a question, is HDR allowed? I couldn't find that in the rules. :)

Ha ha, well honestly running out of ideas to make things different. :P

P.S. Sorry I clicked Modify rather than quote by mistake on your post above.  :-[

@Subhadip - Honestly a lot of people hate HDRs so you really shouldn't worry too much. :)

@Ayaz - I purposely left it wide to try and elicit more participation unlike the last contest. :)

@All - Ah some really fantastic entries so far ! Some of them made my day ! :D

Nice category.. Now need to find out a pic worthy of the competition and post (that's not gonna be easy)..

BTW, some nice entries there. Time to fasten the seat-belt for more :D

Just one observation, can we have a standard size for the entries? There are different sizes that has been posted and I feel a standard size (e.g. 800x1200) would be a better option. What do you guys think?

^^ I agree. Size should be standardized.

Also I am changing the contest a bit for the next one on a trial basis. Stay tuned. :)
