Official Photo Contest #8

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.

(I'm abolishing the silly "no camera-phone pics" rule; a camera is a camera. But if the photo looks like a fuzzy picture of dirt underwater, you probably aren't going to win.)


Official Photo Contest #8 Topic

I'm going to leave this pretty vague on purpose: the topic is motion. Now this could simply be a good track photo showing a bike in motion, a good spots shot freezing the action, or even a photo of something stationary taken in a way that it appears to be moving. (Obvisouly no photoshoped blurring or touchups, just something straight off the camera.)

Oh fine, Ill throw one in from the scrapbook:

Dustin Boyd rounding turn 6b at Blackhawk. Of course this is before he became that famous 5 time Amateur CCS champion.

Taken with the trusty D50 and 70-200VR:


I have others that may be sharper, but I love the background in this one. Its too bad that when you get to shutter speeds this slow that the image actually stretches as you are taking the picture. The backgrounds turn out amazing, but the subject unfortunately has a strange partial focus/out of focus effect. Its a really strange concept to grasp.

I got tons of actions shots, many better than this. However, I like this one because it shows the meaning of throwing a pitch with your whole body.
