Welcome to the Photography Contest!

Welcome back for another round of the DC Photography contest, come and show us what you've got! 

 

This time, the theme is: Masks


A topical topic, but take it any which way you like.

 

Submission deadline: January 27

 

Voting deadline: February 1

 

Rules:

- One entry per person.

- A photograph is defined as an image made using a camera or phone camera

- Screenshots are not allowed

- 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.

I've been told this window looks like it's wearing a face mask:

Took this photo in Spring. Interestingly, the window *still* looks that way - they never fixed it.

Not very original, but I can't not post it with this theme! :)  Taken a few weeks ago.

Oh wow, are you selling ?

Umm no, buying...  :lol:  I wish I had the patience to sew stuff myself!

I had decided not to buy any new clothes in 2020, so I guess I sort of compensated for that by buying a ton of pretty masks instead.

 

They're from redbubble.com, there are lots of artists there selling various products with their designs. They have flat masks that are no good IMO (not suitable for people with noses), but these 3D ones are okay. They have a nose wire which makes them almost usable with glasses. (I haven't found any masks that REALLY work with glasses, though.)

You win. Everybody go home.

 

🤔 My sister has a small collection of small Mardi Gras masks. Pretty sure she has them put away right now. Supposed to see her Tuesday if the winter weather doesn't hit us hard.

Part of my sister's Mardi Gras collection. I also have a photo of two feather-framed faces and another of one that she says is a vintage 1920s (gothic looking with black strands), but I wasn't sure if they qualify as masks.

Those would be masks, by the sound of them, but what you've posted is lovely too.

Ohhh - not really masks, you're right - well, the bottom one looks like a mask... but no the others. That trending one isn't coming up for me.

Try the trending link again. I think Imgur is having some overload, because of the Inauguration + their regular anything and,everything.
