Beginning with the contest on 1/2/12, we will have a winner's gallery thread. It will be assumed that you grant permission to have your image (if a winner) posted in the winner's thread unless you advise otherwise.
Today's (10/30/12) theme is "Spooky". Post your best image of a human model (living, dead, or undead) that is spooky.
Wednesday's (10/31/12) theme will be "Horror". Post your best horror genre image of a human model, living, dead, or undead.
A winner's medallion is available for the winner's profile page (past winners may also receive it).

1. One entry per person per day.
2. One vote per person per day.
3. No bumping your entry.
4. No voting before 12:00 PM MM time (Pacific) unless page 2 has been reached. 5. No collages or multiple images.

Please PM me with any questions, concerns, suggestions or concept ideas. Let's have fun!
* There has been an increasing amount of editorial comments lately. The idea of the contest is to portray the concept with an image and no words. It is fine, however, to credit those who worked on the image.
There have also been too many rule #9 violations lately. This could result in the thread being locked and is not fair to those who abide by the rules. Please abide by the MM rules for forum posting or more stringent action may be taken.

Thank you all for the votes.
...for what it is worth:
Shot in NH along the Kancamagus Trail in the dead of winter.
35MM Film / NIKON F4 / Double Exposure
Titled: The Kancamagus Ghost
The figure appeared by the road from nowhere. no footprints, clutching a staff and draped in a raggy coat.
I pulled over, instructed my wife to stay in the car while I approached the figure.
No words were exchanged, I shot him with my Nikon and fled back to the car.
We started along the road then quickly turned back finding no figure, no footprints.
The temperature was minus something degrees with a howling wind.
