November Photography Contest!

Postby Scribs » Wed Nov 02, 2005 3:39 pm

Yes, it is that time again, time for the start of a new photo contest. (Could a mod please move this to the contest area? Thanks)

What is this month’s theme? Water.
It covers the majority of the earth’s surface, 2/3 of your body consists of it and you need to consume large quantities of it in order to survive, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to get a picture of it, now should it?

Deadline? The 22nd should do nicely. So sometime on the 23rd I will attempt to get it judged.

Rules? You must take the picture yourself. You must not use any photo editing software to touch it up or crop it (proper centering of the subject is important for good photography.) You are allowed to use photos that you have taken prior to the start of the contest, so long as they follow the other rules.

What are the criteria for judging? I am not sure actually. I am going to try and find someone who is somewhat qualified in the field of photography to judge it. If not I will find a competent unbiased source to judge. Just try to get a good, clear, well focused picture.

Ok, that’s about it! Enjoy the contest!

Edit: Sorry, forgot to mention, you are allowed to have 2 entries per person.

Yes, Olorc is very busy nowadays, and he has handed the contest off to me. He does however still run the coloring contest, which I urge you all to enter if you can.

OK, question: Is the main focus of the picture supposed to be the water? Or can it just be an awesome pic so long as it has a noticeable amount of water in it?
Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

alone,
And this I know.
Your breath's like wine,
And just like clouds, my skin crawls.
It's so divine, the sky it glows with fields of light.
Did you know that I love you?
Come and lay with me.
I love you.
And all this day, I will love you.
You make me feel alive,
and I'll love you
Until the end of time.[/SIZE][/align]

The focus does not have to be on the water, as long as there is water in the picture.

Ooh, this should be interresting. Question, though: water in any form? As in, does snow count? ^^;;; (It snowed a foot last night and I took some pictures that I would love to use if snow counts... )

I have a question. You can't use editing software to resize the pic right. My pics are over 2 to 3 MB long and I haven't been able to post them on the board or get them on photo web pages, because the files are so long.

Resising for the sake of making it small enough to post is fine. It doesnt change the picture, it simply makes it smaller.

Alrighty, here are my two submissions. It snowed a foot tuesday morning, so I ran around my building taking pictures, I ended up taking about 80 in all, but these were two of my favorites.

Good luck everyone in the contest.

Yeah, I have a digital camera. I loves it, it's a lot of fun to play around with. And I can take 80 pictures and only have 10 turn out and spend nothing to figure that out. ^^. My picture last month was taken with a Vivitar SLR that is now dead T_T I miss it.

In photoshop, click 'Image', then 'Image Size'; then a window should pop up, in it switch the upper boxes that say 'pixels' to 'percentage' and resize the picture from there. Should work... that's what I do.

Depend on it. God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supply. He is too wise a God to frustrate His purposes for lack of funds, and He can just as easily supply them ahead of time as afterwards, and He much prefers doing so.
- J. Hudson Taylor
I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?" "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet. You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times." It was all true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach. He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.

For some reason I feel slightly evil entering this pic. :grin: I was just looking to see if I had any photos with water in them and I found this one. I took it this past weekend at the St. Louis zoo, because I had never seen a polar bear sit like that. I'm happy it turned out as clear as it did since I had it zoomed quite a bit. ;)
