DC Photography Contest #110

Recommended Posts

The theme for this photography contest is "Monument." It can be a natural or man-made, but ut has to be something permanent that has significance to someone's memory. Stonehenge or Easter Island, while a mystery to us, were not so to the people who built them. Devil's Tower in Yellowstone Park, USA, is a natural monument. You get the idea.


Two examples:


Mesa Verde, Colorado, USA


Devil's Tower, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA



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 find it sort of gauche for the host of a competition to actually vote. Now, if a tie-breaker is needed, it's a bit different, but I'd still want to bring in a 3rd party to do that. Neutrality and fairness, I guess are the key in my thinking on that.

Entry deadline for this contest has passed, and a poll thread opened for voting. Good luck, participants! I agree with BreSinue12. They are too awesome to choose only one. smile.gif
