Welcome to the Photography Contest!

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

  

Submission deadline: August 11th

 

This time, the theme is: Still Life

Wikipedia says, a still life is "a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter". Who says that work of art can't be a photo?

 

Voting deadline: August 25th

 

Submissions:

Little-Star's Wrong kind of pasta
Lagie's Starting breakfast
sh20000sh's Grade scrabble
Aqub's Old tools
GhostMouse's Seaside Gentian
water_angel's Still life exhibit in a museum

 

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.
