Round-the-Clock challenge : Flowerama! + Some announcements




Taking queue from the lovely effects the Diana+ close-up lenses bring, our first Round-the-Clock challenge for the week involves your best floral shots. The most colorful, detail-bursting flower photos will grab a chance to win our opening salvo for the week. (Any analog camera shot is allowed!)

Rumble Details


  • 1st Place – 15 Piggies
  • 2nd Place – 10 Piggies
  • Runner-Up – 5 Piggies

Deadline – in 24 hours (please check the posting time to guide you through!)

Upload a maximum of 3 photos ONLY, 768px in width or height.

If your submissions would not push through the first time, please give a few hours before resubmitting your entries!

Rumble Announcement

To avoid confusion with the rumbles and our plethora of contests, the 24-hour rumble is now merged with the Round-the-Clock rumble. We will still have the same frequency of rumbles but just streamlined the prizes! :)

    WHY WHY WHY 3 photos only? I'm a so bad judge of myself that I'm sure I leave out the best shots! :(

    @calo: no, it's open for all! (Any analog camera shot is allowed!)
    @superlighter: so we could sort the entries out easier. It usually takes us an insane LOOOOOOT of time just to go through every entry and it'd help us if you send what deems best :)

    I've been trying for hours and can't upload. Every time I click "add images" the button disappears, but nothing appears that would enable me to upload. I know how to do it, but I'm not being allowed. I've tried Opera, IE, and Seamonkey and none of those browsers work. I'm off to shoot now, good luck to those that were able to upload!

    Meh, been trying to upload images since yesterday, but it just won't have it. Gets to resizing then freezes there. I've had problems before, but usually it will upload at least one eventually, if I keep trying for long enough. Not this time it seems!
    Good luck to all those who could upload! The gallery looks great!
