    Got that, just wanted to be certain :beer. Biscuits/Dessert are technically food but may not be/fit the food theme that Kobe has in mind, subject to mods approval. In any case, off to eating and snapping for submissions :druul:hehee

    Nature/wildlife shots :swtf

    That's really broad, I thought narrowing it down would be more interesting. You could do birds as well, for example, and it could also include depictions of birds in case someone can't capture any good shots of living birds.

    I don't think we have. One of the really early on contests in PotW 9 -- Water had some boats in it but they weren't the focus.

    Nature usually happens in various ways just under different names. You can do like Suzutsuki suggested with narrowing it down to something like birds/pets/reptiles, or you can do an overall one after a decent amount of time between themes.

    I suppose it depends on how you word the suggestion. For example, you mentioned Desserts before. There was a strictly Desserts theme in the past and a Fruits and Vegetables theme as well. But Food is the general theme so they all still count. Going back to birds, we've had a few Animal themes but birds would count in both.

    In third place, it's a statistical tie between the comfy clouds of Entry 01 by @Mysticreader and the comfy couple of owls in Entry 03 by @Azeruth!

    In second place, it's the happy gathering of comfy sharks in Entry 02 by @Suzutsuki!

    And the winner of Photography of the Week is...


    It's the comfy dog with the comfy toy frog in Entry 08 by @Jibutters!

    Congratulations to all the winners!

    Bout time it came to an end. I'm gonna sit this one out. Boring selection and it gets tiresome taking pics sometimes when it's the same ole same ole. Congrats to the winners I guess.

    Also considering my only win and the pick I selected for the next photo contest had the most entries and it's not a staple of the contest is blasphemy.

    Lol

    Could do the Naval/Ships/Aquatic Life theme Suzu had suggested before. Or could do another round of Transportation or specifically Cars like Nataly suggested.

    I'll give you a few more hours to make a choice, otherwise it'll go to a dice roll on the other suggestions~

    As a note for now regarding Cars, if you happen to take a picture that includes a license plate, please keep in mind that for privacy reasons it should probably be removed or blurred. The rules for photomanipulation state that it is fine to remove something for privacy concerns.

    If possible please try to avoid including license plates. If it's not something you can really do, then please try to cover it up to prevent issues.

    And yes to the 1st question. Lots of turkish restaurants here. Also like turkish cuisine among others :catstalk The teas not so, don't know why but it's either bland or bitter in all the places I went to. But others like it so maybe it's just me :psyduck
