DC Photography Contest #22

Recommended Posts

Thank you to everyone who voted for me! smile.gif (I'm still speechless!) The theme this round is ... no, not winter, sorry guys... and not brownies or dogs or handcuffs either,

but rather purple, since I see from past competitions that a colour can be used! Let's see some entries!

 

Purple example, to decorate the first post (bromeliad in my aunt's garden, from last year):

Rules:

- One entry per person

- No manipulation besides basic photo adjustments (contrast, exposure, cropping, color balance, lighting, etc.)

- No text or framing in the photo. A signature/watermark is just fine, but it's preferable if you don't have "O Hai Eye Hav3 T3XT" (or something similar) present in the photo.

- When voting, please don't select your own image. This will ensure fairness.

- You are free to submit an old photo, you don't need to take a new one just for this competition.

How I hate my memory... This time I really need to get a picture in time... I've an idea now, hah, maybe not the best thing to photograph, but he's purple for sure. And I can use it as an "in progress" picture too... (: Hopefully I might continue with him if I photograph him to this... (yes, I know, probably none of you know what I'm talking about, so I can at least say that I'm talking about Spyro)

I was about to reply that I did not have any pictures fitting the theme, and because I am away from wednesday I do not have a change to take a new photo and post it before closing date.

 

But look what I found here:

Pufferfish

 

And that is really the most purple picture I have:P The rest is more.. pink

Purple, huh? Well, I guess I have some shots that go with the theme. laugh.gif It's just choosing one that's the problem. I'm leaning towards the first one though.

Yeah, the dragon is actually made out of wood. happy.gif I saw it when I went to a medieval fair with my Aunt. Was too expensive to buy, but nobody stopped me from getting a quick picture.

 

Okay, first picture it is! laugh.gif

@lachrymation: I like the first one; it's got a nice calm feel about it. The other one just looks odd with the blurred flowers right in front.

I like the first one, too, lachrymation.

 

Gamekatt, this image has been moved or deleted?

 

Flowers, a purple house, a purple shirt... butterflies. I know you guys will be successful in finding things! smile.gif

 

And, yes, Nim, that works!

which one? There's this one, which is prettier, but it's less purple, and this one which is more purple, but less pretty.

I like the first one best.

Ok, the first one it is! =D Thanks for helping me decide. I wasn't too sure which one to favour over the other... theme or quality?

Btw, for this contest, I'd like the description for my picture to be "It's a red-spotted purple... but it's not purple! OH, THE IRONY."
