DC Photography Contest # 74

Recommended Posts

Okay, I've been wracking my brains for a new subject that hasn't already been used. At first I thought of 'water', but no, been used. And it's summer, but that seemed sort of obvious. So, how about going in the opposite direction, in a way?


How about 'Darkness'. The darkness could be the beauty of night, or darkly coloured objects, or darkness in a psychological sense, or... any way you want to interpret the term. I'll post my own choice as an example later, if you like. In the meantime, have fun interpreting. :-)


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 lots of photos that would be great for this theme, but they're all prints and need to be scanned before I can use them. Tested my new scanner on this photo, taken in Hong Kong in 1988.

Not sure you can enter your own contest, Jennie, though it's a cool photo!

Oh, I'm sorry. I thought I saw that other people had entered their own contests. I'll check again, and if I'm wrong, I'll pull my photo. Sorry.


Okay, so I've checked and it looks like I was wrong. My apologies, and I'm pulling my photo.


ETA: I'm figuring this thing out as I go along, since I'm new here. Still figuring out how I'm going to post the poll, but I'll manage. :-)

You're right Jennie, the host doesn't actually enter the competition smile.gif


The poll is not tricky. Just hit the "new poll"-button instead of "new topic", and follow the instructions ^^

Just a reminder that the contest ends tomorrow, and then the voting will start. I'm going to end the contest in about 24 hours, and then it will take me a while to get all the links together and so on for the poll. So, you still have time to get your photos in. Good luck. :-)

Okay, since there have been no new photos posted today, I'll declare the contest closed, and will post the poll as soon as possible. :-)
