photo contest #2

R U L E S:
- The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You post ONE image (only first image by one person will be judged) that is relevant to the challenger theme. You can change your image as many times as you like before the deadline.
- The host chooses a winner *AND* runner-up after closing. The decision of the judge (the Host!) is final. The judge is *not* eligible. The winner then chooses the next topic, tells everyone when the photo's must be posted by (give some reasonable amount of time like a week), runs the challenge, judges the winner and passes on the baton to that person. Winner/Host, please post a reasonable topic that someone who's not a pro photographer can be a part of. Remember it's not just cool shots, but the story that can be told for some.
- If the winner fails to post a new challenge within 48 hours of being declared the winner then the runner-up should post the new challenge within a further 24 hours.
- Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera it was taken with. You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera, lens and exposure info along with your photo.
- All levels welcome. If you don't have the best lens or just a plain old pocket camera but your shot tells a wonderful story then there's no reason you can't win! This is about overall photo's and their story, not just about expensive equipment.
- Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, ask for it...after all we are here to learn too and practice.
- Provide any additional information concerning your entry you want. Explaining how the shot might relate to the topic could help too.
- Winner/Host, please copy and paste these rules into the topic and thread that you post because some might start doing contests later and miss the first one.


Week #2 Topic
New topic, new boundaries. This week I am looking for "industrial shots". Those like maybe your boken down bike that is sitting n a garage. Cars, trains, planes, locomotives are all aparty of how goods and resources travel, but where does it ship from, and where does it go to? Ports of all types I assume.

So go out there and try to view the subject matter with a different eye. You might have lie down in the prone position to get the best shot.

What about industrial city landscapes?

In the rules, I didn't see that the winner also gets to play with Tony's new Iphone...what gives?

Bobby,

Thank you for solidifying the rules. I didn't want to mess with the first challenge because there were too many holes in the rules...and honestly, I had nothing good to submit. I love how your Topic reads like a riddle! Very open ended for a wide range of subject, and makes us think and be creative. Well done!

Tony,

I'm *very* impressed with that shot. I don't even want to submit anything after seeing it! I can't poke a single flaw in it (assuming it's a bit dark by choice). . My hats off to you .

Vivid, a wonderfully exposed and interesting shot. Very well done!

I have no idea what I'm going to submit after those two. Most of my shots in the past year have been candid or basic bike shots. The previous year was all fish and aquarium photography. Industrial shots? Hmmm...I might have to get out of the house this week for that subject.

It is dark by choice. thank you very much for the comments.
Shot was taken with my new 70-200 F4L lens with a Circular polarizer in place.

iso 100 1/1250 @F4

with some editing in Adobe Lightroom to get the look and feel I was after.

Mort wants details:

I don't know any of the settings on this. But that's Mort, angry with his bike....they have a love/hate relationship sometimes. I'm pretty sure I shot this with the D80.



I'd love to go downtown to shoot for this one...or maybe Gary would be more appropriate.

Industrial cityscapes are ok, as long as it is industrial area of the city, smoke stacks, barbed wire, abandoned warehouses etc. The picture you submitted, what is this?? Do you know what they are supporting if supporting anything like a bridge? Looks like a sidewalk of some sort, I like the fresh clean rain.

The sun is rising earlier and staying out later, and you got a new toy. Should be plenty of initiative to take some new shots

Think some are using point and shoots, others are using DSLR, don't know of any using film.

Bug, can you blow your pictures up??





It's already Wednesday people! Get out to the steel mill in Gary. Find a local factory, and try to get a shot of a smoke stack in the 5 degree weather. A machine with moving parts would be ideal. These shots are cool:





Or even something like this:





One recommendation about shooting in the cold, when you have been outside for a little while shooting, place your camera in a plastic bag before entering the house/car to prevent condensation from building inside the camera.

These are the types of photographs I am looking for, commercial, construction, industrial... I guess they are close to the same thing. Industrial architecture is another one that works, but modern architecture is something different.

Include more details in the architectural photos and I'll consider judging them, but so far, I would not consider the one's not quoted "industrial".

Thanks!

I think that helps a bit.. I didn't really spend a lot of time looking thru my collection as I thought the criteria was very broad... Perhaps I just missed your point.
Seemed to me that Motorcycles would almost deserve their own specific contest or contests (considering where this contest is taking place ((ie road racing, posing, fancy, dirt, dirt racing, crashing, parted out, pretty, shattered... etc etc))

I saw that one picture from the inside of a train in E. Berlin and thought... It kinda might fit the transportation aspect, but not so obviously so.. Not really in love with the pic at all.. I can see some of the pic's fitting in with how I read your contest, and others not so much.. IMHO (and I do mean humble) you should narrow the scope down a bit.. I think that many others are looking at this and not sure what they should enter... Just seems to broad and not very clear to me...

It's your game and you should do it however you see fit.. Just wanted to post this up.. I might be the only one out here who is seeing it that way.. If so.. please feel free to ignore me..

Seemed to me that Motorcycles would almost deserve their own specific contest or contests (considering where this contest is taking place ((ie road racing, posing, fancy, dirt, dirt racing, crashing, parted out, pretty, shattered... etc etc))

I saw that one picture from the inside of a train in E. Berlin and thought... It kinda might fit the transportation aspect, but not so obviously so.. Not really in love with the pic at all.. I can see some of the pic's fitting in with how I read your contest, and others not so much.. IMHO (and I do mean humble) you should narrow the scope down a bit.. I think that many others are looking at this and not sure what they should enter... Just seems to broad and not very clear to me...

It's your game and you should do it however you see fit.. Just wanted to post this up.. I might be the only one out here who is seeing it that way.. If so.. please feel free to ignore me..
Thanks for the feedback.

When I thought "industrial" I was thinking smoke stacks, power lines, gears, welding, steel mills, abandoned warehouses, ugly stuff like that, very difficult to capture and call a good photograph. Hope that clears it up a little. I guess we can't really be too critical on a motorcycle forum...
