Use household everyday objects in your images. It can be anything in the home; be creative. (This is a subject which was definitely tailor made for our judge!)

Judge - Marty Golin - Marty is a long-term artistic member and VP of our club. His images are thought provoking (and he admits his selective eye often keeps him from completing household chores).

NOTE: Regarding the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in photography.  The Planning Committee has decided that the components of your final image should be produced by your camera. We are interested in your work as a photographer. If you decide to modify any part of an image in your photo, such as replacing the sky, it MUST come from your camera only. Basic tools like the healing brush for dust spot removal are allowed. GENERATIVE AI IS NOT ALLOWED for contests unless the rules  specifically permit it.

UPLOAD DEADLINE: Upload before 5:00 PM Saturday, January 13th.  If you are late in uploading and miss the deadline, you can still try uploading, but your images may or may not show up for the contest.

UPLOAD: Click on Member Log In (not the drop down).  Then enter your User Name (UN) and Password (PW). If you don't remember your UN, contact Dianne Rose. She can give this information to you. If you don't remember your PW, you can enter your UN and use the provided link to change your PW (make note of it somewhere). Be creative with your PW; we have had our problems in the past with 'simple' passwords.

If you have difficulty with your upload or have made a mistake and wish to replace an image, please contact Janet Hickey or Dianne Rose.  We reserve the right to remove image(s) if they are not properly added.

IMAGES: Members may submit up to four (4) images) in this contest. Choose two (2) max in any one category. (Example - Max two (2) in the THEME category and two (2) in OPEN).

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS below BEFORE saving your image and uploading.

NAMING: Type in "HOUSE" first. Continue by using first name then your last name initial, then show the number of the image (01, 02) and briefly describe what we are seeing.
Example: HOUSE_Dianne_01 (add description). Then save your format as a .jpg image.
Example: "HOUSE_DianneR_01 blender.jpg".  The second image would be "02".
If you are entering 1 or 2 additional images in the OPEN category - The example would be the same, but using OPEN first rather than HOUSE.

SIZE: Horizontal/wide 1600 px OR for a vertical/tall or your 'square-ish' image use 1200 px.
IMPORTANT TIP: Make sure that the total image size is not over 2MP. The uploader may have difficulty with larger images and will probably fail to upload. If this occurs, resize your image by adjusting the jpg "QUALITY" slider.  Watch that the total MP of the image does NOT exceed 2MP. Save your image and try UPLOAD again.
FORMAT: .jpg or .jpeg
