=================================================================================
Got a nice picture or video you took with your T2i?  Submit it below and the winner's picture/video will be posted up as the website header for the month of January.
 
I wish we could throw in a prize but unfortunately, we don't have any sponsors yet.  Bragging rights are always fun to win though!

Also the winner will choose the next POTM`s theme!

Looking forward to seeing what you all got!  The poll will be added on January 20th for the first round of voting.  January 25, 2012 as the poll will be updated so that everyone can vote on their favourite from the top 3 that made it past the first round of voting.

The Theme of this Competition is Bokeh.

RULES

1.  One photo entry per user (so pick your best one!).  Choose wisely as the first photo you submit will be the one judged.  You can't switch photos once one's been submitted.
2.  Photo has to be in some way related to the Theme.
3.  Photo has to be in landscape orientation (as opposed to portrait), preferably 990x415 as this will be the cropped end product (Photos that have a smaller width than 990 or a smaller height than 415 will be disqualified - the reason, enlarging photos degrades their quality).
4.  Deadline for entries is midnight MST on January 20, 2012.
5.  Between January 20 and 25, members vote on their 3 favourites and can update/change their votes up until midnight January 25.  From midnight January 25 to the end of the month, the poll will be reset with the top 3 vote-getters from the first round and members can vote for their favorite.
6.  Moderators can now enter a photo in the contest without worrying about conflict on interest, haha.

Hmmm....bokeh might be difficult with a 990x415 ratio, but I think I have a few....

And we are off. I predict there to be 14 shots of flowers in this months thread. I think I might even break my anti flower stance and post a flower shot of my own.

Nice start JosephLara.

It's a Japanese term that essentially means using blur artistically.

Well I managed to get the width correct at least  :-\

Edit: Fixed, but it threw my rule of thirds off lol.

One time, this guy handed me a picture of him, he said,"Here's a picture of me when I was younger." Every picture is of you when you were younger. "Here's a picture of me when I'm older." How'd you pull that off? Lemme see that camera... what's it look like? -Mitch Hedberg

Now, that is a nice photo - I've always liked suckulents. Why not just find a good crop and dial in the height?
