    Hi everyone,

    This month I've decided to choose the theme based on one of my favorite albums. The theme for the May '08 photo challenge is "Sunrise Over Sea" by John Butler Trio. Good luck everyone and as always please don't forget to read the boring, but important stuff down below :).

    For all those who wish to participate in this challenge please take a moment to read through the following:

    - The deadline for submissions is May 31
    - The image can be no larger then 150KB*
    - Include your forum username when submitting
    - The submitted photo must be in the form of a .jpg
    - Please keep your photo anonymous (no distinguishing watermarks, and no photos that have been posted previously on the forum)
    - Submit no more than one photo
    - If you wish you may include a title when submitting your photo (please use no special characters)
    - The form must also be included when submitting the photo
    - The forum Admins and Moderators reserve the right to exclude or remove any photo solely at their discretion

    Please submit only one photo per challenge.

    .......................................................................................................

    Please email your photo to photochallenge@thephotoforum.com and remember to enter the subject as indicated.

    All photos must include the form when submitted. Just copy and paste it into your email. This will ensure that no mistakes are made when photos are submitted and therefore, hopefully, no photos are excluded. If the form is not included in the submission email the photo will not be included in the challenge gallery and voting process.

    There is more important information regarding rules and procedures located in the FAQ section. We highly recommend that you take the time to read these FAQs.
    Good luck to everyone and have fun with this challenge!

    *150KB will be taken as the “size on disk” and not the actual file size. Also some email programs consider 1KB=1000Bytes as oppposed to 1KB=1024Bytes. When these programs calculate attachment size they will often read larger then they actually are. To be safe we recommend a target size of about 140KB so that once sent it does not go over 150KB.

    Is anything from the album fair game? Or should it be connected with the album title itself?

    For those who live inland I think a lake or river would probably do. I live near the ocean but I don't see why you couldn't use a lake, stream or river

    I agree.

    Also, not sure how'd you tell a sunrise from a sunset, so if you don't tell us, we won't know :sexywink:.

    Okay, you'll all laugh at me. Not being familiar with the John Butler Trio, let alone his album Sunrise over Sea, I went googling.

    Discovered that the Sunrise over Sea is part of the lyric to Peaches and Cream.

    Well, googling for the lyrics to Peaches and Cream, I inadvertently stumbled across a same titled song by an artist "112."

    "sunrise" "over" and "sea" were nowhere within that particular song!

    If one doesn't mind raunchy lyrics or concepts, one can google for 112's version of the song.

    I was pleased to discover that it wasn't John Butler's version, and that his version is an homage to his daughter and wife. This really opens up the possibilities for some creative images.

    Sunrise is a brighter yellow than sunset which is more of a darker orange. For example, this is a sunset:

    I was just going for sunrise photos over a body of water. I hadn't thought about anything else from the album.

    What do you people think? Do you want to have a few more options?

    Here's the track listing if it will help you you guys decide:

    1. Treat Yo Mama
    2. Peaches & Cream
    3. Company Sin
    4. What You Want
    5. Damned To Hell
    6. Hello
    7. Bound To Ramble
    8. Seeing Angels
    9. There'll Come a Time
    10. Zebra
    11. Mist
    12. Oldman
    13. Sometimes
    14. Somethings Gotta Give*

    Just voice up to say if you want to restrict it to sunrise photos or if you want to open it up to the whole album.
