DC Photography Contest #49

Recommended Posts

Welcome everyone! Sorry this took so long, it's a busy time of year for students as I'm sure many of you know.


I do beleive this week's subject matter will be Contrast. Either Light/Dark, colour contrast, texture contrasts... even ideological contrasts, if you've got a photo showcasing that.

This is just basic Light/Dark... but there are so many more ways to use it!


The Rules:

- One entry per person

- Picture has to be made by yourself and can't be just a reproduction of someone's work. If someone else's work is in the picture, there needs to be something extra.

- 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.

No, it's one of those fuzzy things with the metal inside that you can bend into a bunch of shapes. I attached it to the mesh on my window.

Hm, I've got two I really like for this.


This, as a sort of symbolic contrast between life and death, or the cycles of the year.


Or this, a more literal one between light and dark.

Wow, so many good entires! I really like Subject/background contrast for Rhea, and for St. Jimmy, I think the snow and pine tree is the best.


And, Laurarockstar, I think you picture qualifies. wink.gif
