Official Photo Contest #5

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.

-New Rule, no camera phone pictures. This is an artistic contest and nothing about a camera phone shows good composition or technique.


Official Photo Contest #5 Topic
This week’s topic is “Contrast”. Compose and capture pictures of anything that shows contrast, yin and yang, hot and cold, black and white, masculine and feminine, fast and slow, ...etc. There are lots of possibilities.

Due Date: 3/24/2008

My sample. I call this one Fire and Ice.

"The man who makes me your enemy, it is he who be the guilty one....Here I abandoned peace and desecrated law; fortune it is you I follow. Farewell to treaties. From now on war is our judge!"

I really like this pic, the contrast in it, the pic itself. Does this work? It is original in color, but i think it's better in B/W
I was trying to get the mother more in the shadows and the baby more in the light, to show that he's pure and the connection between them in their eyes.

Bikes can be replaced...people can't...ride safe!!

I'll keep looking through my photos, but this one came to mind when thinking about a white vs. black contrast.

My vote is for the cleevage shot

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Yes it works. You can't go wrong with contrast pics. Life is all about contrast.

Nah these are normal chilli peppers. Not very hot on the Scoville scale. My younger brother and sister-inlaw eats them like candy. I use them to make my own hot sauces. I have some Thai peppers that are green and black that grow about waist high. Now those are hot. I use to grow Habeneros but no one really likes them.

You can have as many as you want once they are in season. I usually grow enough to put in the freezer for all winter and I pickle some in jars. Good stuff.

The aspect ratio is not really right for a screen background but I probably have a similar one that could be.

There are some interesting interpretations of contrast. Really good entries. It will be tough for me to judge.

Been a busy morning for me. I hate judging as I like many of the pics. But I can only pick one.

Winner! Naked Bandit.

I really like the framing of the shot. I like the contrast of the ice/water and the cool weather vs warm weather sport of cycling.


2nd place BusaDave.
Beautiful shot of the silhouette of the city. I really like the contrast of the sky, clouds and buildings.
