i kind of have an idea of what i want to do, but it involves a lot of graphic design--it focuses less on the photography aspect and more on the computer generated / video game aspect. im not sure if ill be disqualified

The subject lends itself to this kind of approach. I guess the only way to see what people think of it is to try it? It's a difficult subject but I can't wait to see what you chaps come up with.

It IS a photo comp tho....

I'm assuming this rule gets tossed out the window for this specific contest...

Falls foul of the rules as far as I can make out - bits "chopped" in etc. Unless you took a photo of someone in front of a tank?

Haha...filename changed from sick to bitches....
real good chance of winning based on that alone.


in all seriousness, that's not really a photo. it's a graphic design that involves photography.
