Welcome to the Photography Contest!

Here you submit photos you've taken and users vote on which photo they like the best!

  

Submission deadline: 24th March

This time, the theme is: Games

 

I'd like to see some games! All games are welcome, be they board games, video games, sports games, anything! As long as there's a game in the picture, it counts. So let's have some fun!

 

Voting deadline: 30th March

 

Submissions:

sh20000sh's home-made puzzle

Little-Star's boyfriend's board games

hedy's Red Dead Redemption 2

BrazenChase's Dungeons & Dragons

Ruby Eyes' cat playing dominoes

GhostMouse's favourite dice

Lagie's five puzzles in one

 

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.

- Winner hosts the next contest.

Do puzzles or Lego count as a 'game'?

If puzzles like things are allowed, I'd like to submit this one as entry:

It was the one of things that I made at high school. Its goal was starting from top left tile and find way to bottom right tile.

Welp, I think I don't have to explain detailed instructions here.

Lego is more of a toy than a game, but puzzles are definitely in :)

Not the best quality image ever (taken on a phone from a TV screen), but I like it nevertheless! I took the first night I was playing Red Dead Redemption 2, and even though I have some "prettier" images from the game, this has a lot emotional meaning to me since I remember feeling so happy taking that because I could finally play the game and it was everything I had hoped for and more :wub:

Time to enjoy some lovely beautiful art to help stimulate your creativity and appreciation, please show some love and support with just a simple vote! Also, for those getting the creative art itch or who do photography or used to and want a reason to do more, encourage them to check these out, they are a very long time ongoing DC forum Activity, and it is a really awesome way for people to share their creativity. And maybe even consider dipping your toe in the water, and if nothing else, make a vote, and make a post so we are sharing the love and support. I really always love to see what people post and share stories about the pictures regardless of who "wins" the round, and I really appreciate the work. So thank you for always being willing to share your work. There are a lot of people who want to art more, or try to art more, or get inspired to art more, and these sorts of fun non-judging events and games are great ways to get into that frame of mind to encourage and better expand our own appreciation of the art. So much to be inspired by. It would be a shame to keep the secret ALL to ourselves!
