Bimmerpost Photo Contest #8- "Serenity"

CONTEST #8 "Serenity"

RULES
-Any interpretation of the theme that falls within Bimmerpost.com rules is welcome.
-You must be the person that took the photo. Previous photos are acceptable as long as you are the one that captured the image.
-One submission per contest.
-Images must be no larger than 800px in any direction. Links to larger images are allowed but you must have one that is under 800px for the poll.
-All contestants must host their own pictures.
-All pictures must have a title.
-While post processing in Photoshop is allowed, adding or removing parts of the picture is not. In the event a photo is suspected to be "photochopped," the contestant will be asked to provide the original picture.


So just in case you're wondering, "serenity" is a picture of any place, person, or thing that provokes the feeling of calmness, peace, or relaxation.

Important dates and poll info:
Entries must be submitted to this thread no later than Sunday, March 22nd at 2AM EST.

The poll will start on either the same day March 22nd or the following day, March 23rd. As soon as I have some time I will post up the poll.

I worried about that, too. Maybe I should post something different?

It is odd that serenity seems to center around water for many of us. Human trait, I guess.

and thats totally fine, obviously I am in no place to say you can/can't submit it. I was just saying I personally think its so close up and hard to tell what I'm looking at that I don't get the same feeling as you (or maybe someone else) might. To each his own, but regardless of that its still are REALLY nice lookin pic.
