Caption Contest: February 20 - 26, 2016
Posted By: Logics, 02-21-2016, 10:17 PM

The contest will run from Feb 20 through Feb 26. Votes will be counted thereafter.

NB: VOTE ("like") FOR SOMEONE WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE AN ENTRANT....!!

Submissions can be in any written form (no video or audio files) — caption, limerick, motivational, poem or prose — whatever inspires you to describe the photo or catch attention. Submit by replying to the thread. Contestants may submit more than one entry but it must be in a separate post. Important: Even if you do not submit an entry, please “like” any posts you feel deserve it as this is how the winner is chosen. And if you DO submit an entry, please also find an entry that you like from among your competitors' efforts and "like" that one as well.

The "thread starter" is the moderator and must post an original photo at the start of the thread. In case of a tie the moderator will choose one to break the tie. After determination of the contest's winner, that winner will be notified ASAP after by the current Thread Starter/Contest Host and will become responsible for posting the next original work to be captioned. Enter often, vote more often. and most important: Have fun !

My caption was:

“In the Glades, the Everglades, the 'gator sleeps tonight”.

An alligator can stay underwater sleeping for as long as 24 hours!

My choice of pics was difficult: I choose not to use any pics with a minor depicted (my choice), and no client work (my choice) and that left me with few "Caption worthy" (in my opinion) of the many left. I then started going through my nature shots and picked the first "caption worthy" one I could find. Since then, I found others (and not necessarily nature).

Guys, don't wait until you are notified to start selecting your image. You just might win then get caught off guard. ;-)

Tip for the unwary. Polarizing filters DO have their uses.

For some keeping a low profile is the figure of speech. For others it is the way of life.
