Official Photo Challenge #13 Architectural Lines

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.


For the next challenge, the focus is architectural lines. I'm not sure how describe what I'm looking for but i have a few photos to give you an idea.

I'm looking for something creative and unusual. These 2 pictures were taken by accident so they arent close to perfect but maybe they will give you an idea....

+1

I have some ideas, but requires a lot of time. Time as being at the right place, at the right time. Maybe I'll get around to it.

In my head I was looking for more of the industrial look, but looking at your pictures I like it. It gives a different perspective to my title. It is completely up to you Ken, I think alot are going to post the industrial type of pictures so....

I was thinking about going with a spiderweb picture I took many moons ago in SW England with a b/w 35mm but I'm too lazy to find it and scan it. There's lot's of different ways the topic can be taken... That to me says it's a good topic.

The host still picks the winner, right?

The picture is from 1995, not digital. Taken with some crappy Cannon PS camera I had at the time. I've always loved this picture, minimally this gives me an excuse to post it somewhere!

I don't think anybody will be able to just run out and copy that pic.

I liked how the lobby was at that place.
