DC Photography Contest #61

Recommended Posts

Thank you for the votes on my picture in the last contest. smile.gif

Finding a theme is becoming harder and harder so I chose something that allows a large variety of motifes.

What is your favourite picture you ever took?

I know that isn't very easy for someone who takes a lot of photos but there is always ONE that shines above the others. The first one that comes to your mind.

Let's see your masterpieces.

 

My favourite:

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.

I have to say, I'm not surprised that picture is your favorite ohmy.gif It's stunning.

Hmm..I might have something for this, for once xd.png I don't think I've ever entered before but I usually vote. Anyway it is one of my favorite pictures, it just didn't fit in with any of the last few categories.

Perhaps this time around, though..

Deleted my earlier post and am changing my entry to the late lion Cha-Cha, the male lion at the Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines, IA (USA). He was euthanized in March, 2012.

I never was very good at taking photos, but I always really liked how this one turned out with the motion of the wings. c:

Pick my favorite?  Good Grief!  You're not making it easy for me so I'll let the membership help me choose which of these will be my entry:

 

Lady

Ghost Motley

Hydrangea

Dilute Anery Motley

Leviathan

Wow, all of those are gorgeous!

 

I'm pretty torn between Hydrangea and Leviathan, but if I had to choose, it would have to be Hydrangea, if only because of the beautiful colors.

 

 

Edit because I can't read apparently.

Going for Butterfly

 

@CornSerpent:

Dilute Anery Motley or Leviathan, with the first I like the details of the eye, with the second, wow, lovely pose! The only time I noticed one of mine sitting like that was because she was veeery angry (she was about to lay eggs) tongue.gif

Dunno if entries are no longer being accepted, but I'd like to enter mine, if they are:

 

Billboards of the Ancients (petroglyphs: ancient writings on rock face about 10 miles south of where I live)

 

Cicada Bug (this guy was resting on one of Mr. BD71's corn plants last year)

 

Mr. BD71 Shrouded in Mystery (this was a fortuitous shot taken at Yellowstone Park, when the wind shifted just right and blew the steam from the geysers and hot springs around Mr. BD while he was looking off a bridge)

 

Oh, and, I can't choose between the three. xd.png
