Point & Shoot Contest #24 - "The Best View From My Place"

Point & Shoot Contest #24 - "The Best View From My Place"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The theme is "The Best View From My Place",
I selected this theme because I love scenery, landscapes and cityscapes and is one of the main reason why i became interested in photography.

So here's the idea:
Pictures taken within your place. When i say "Place" it can also mean your resthouses or other places which you own. It may be a landmark, a view from your bedroom window, a tourists spot, beach, falls, etc. as long as you live in that area, town, city or state ((just to make the theme broader).

I hope there will be plenty of participants in this contest.





The rules:
Rules of entry

1. ANY camera other than a slr/dslr is eligble.
2. Entries will end on Sunday October 9, 2009 20:00 EST. (-5:00 GMT)
3. Maximum image dimensions are 800 X 800 pixels.
4. List camera BRAND and MODEL with entry for all to see.
5. List the name of the place, the City/State and Country where the pic is taken.
6. Maximum of 3 photos per photographer.
7. Post processing is fine.
8. Winner will set up and judge next contest.
9. Remember to have fun
