august photography contest

Postby olorc » Sun Jul 31, 2005 8:42 am

the theme for this month is gravel!
Just kidding, what lame-o contest that would be.
The real themem is animals.
the deadline is August 20th.
One of the mods/admin will judge if volt doesn't want to.
Everyone gets two entries at most.
No computer editting, these babies must be pure lens work.
And remember, "Don't get eliminated!!"

I don't know how many entries are allowed, so I'll post two for now. I have some better, more artsy ones somewhere, but I'd have to scan them.

About the computer editing... What about maybe cropping? Like as if it's a god picture of the animal, but someone is in the edge of the picture... Well, maybe then the point is to not let that happen... I'm just wandering because, one is not really changing the picture, just the size... ^^;;

I think gravel would be an awesome topic. I love the doggy action shot, Eire! And the dragon and tortoise are awesome. I like reptiles, but my Mom does not. :( I love the black and white pics, and Betty's 'pose' is rather cute and comical.

Alas, I have no scanner/digital camera. And no good pics of my dogs. There is that one of my fish.....

haha, ya. Ash PMed me. I think she got a little confused about the specifics. She didn't know to post the winner directly in this thread nor was she aware of the judging date. So just sit tight till you gets a moment to come and tell us who won.

If you didn't notice already, the coloring contest winner was posted on the homepage already. THe winner of this will get in right above it i think.
