sooooo..drumroll...

SECOND PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST
 
Anybody can enter...
i guess i should say..if you are under 13..your parents should allow you to take part...as always

So..the idea is..you all take a picture (according to the theme)...
then you send it to me via pm...
then i will post them all...so nobody knows who took the picture
and then there will be a voting via pm to me (i will not take part of course)

so the problem is...the users should not be able to know who took the picture
so guys..i know you like taking pics of your animals...but please don't..because then
the voting would not be objective..cause´by now we all know one anothers pets

So you can start pm-ing pictures today...and the deadline is the 7th of June

last contest the theme was Motion
this contest it will be

EMOTION

you should not have trouble thinking of what to photograph

there are no real guidelines for the actual picture:

it should just be a picture that fits with the theme
it can be black and white or in colour
you should send it to me with its original size
it should not be older than 6 months..it would be best if you made it specifically for the contest
and ahh yes one more rule: no changes are to be made with photoshop or programs alike....
you can name your picture if you want to...

ok..if you have any questions..just use the thread to ask them

EVERYBODY< GET READY< SET< GOOOOOOO






so i wish everybody the best of luck..and most of all fun

ps: their will be a small prize for the winner  Wink




hello photography nerds!!!  Grin

so i know we already have a photo member thread, but i had the idea of opening a photography thread.
I have recently discovered my love for photography and i thought maybe there are more users here that share this love.
so as the already existing thread is actually only for member ühotos (which should stay that way)..i thought of creating a thread
for all the other pictures we users take.

so please avoid posting pics of people in this thread...
you can post pics of people, but not the whole pics of you and your best friend....

the idea is to post objects...for example: buildings, food.....and animals....and plants..and all that kind of stuff..

and if enough people come here and show an interest..i will maybe start a small photography competition..(got the idea from a different forum)
i would suggest a theme..you would make pics and send them via pm..or maybe post them here (gotta still decide on that).and i would decided which one will win
...of course i would not take part

edit: conrady had the idea that if you post a pic..you could say which kind of camera you used for it.. *pretty stick* to conrady for the good idea

very important thing: please only post pics you have taken yourself..and everybody remember..the person that posts the pic..has the copyright..

so if the mods do not agree with this new thread..then delete it..but i think people could appreciate this thread..

************************************************************************************************************************************

i will start...

oh well..so i generally take pics of animals (my 2 cats..and insects on plants) and plants (preferably wild ones)
so yesterday it rained..and i thought "what a shame..no nice pics..."....but then i went outside and i was suprised with what i found..
plants sprinkled in waterdrops...and i was in "marlies photography heaven"








hope you guys have fun here...

Hey Marlies!

I love the idea to open such a thread cause I always like to see other pictures taken by other people.

You have a big talent for photography - I am not a professional (faaar away from that *lol*), but I like to look at those pictures. The show nature from another side. For example - I usually hate insects especially when they're making this annoying noise flying around my head - but when you see them at the pictures .. like a painting - I love it!!

So, I also have something to share - not much though, cause I usually don't take pictures (for two reasons: 1) I don't have a good camera - only the one on my mobile phone and 2) I don't visit any nice places very often and take a picture from my room or the street that I live on - well, I think that would be pretty boring  Grin)

Anyway, I took these pictures about 2 weeks ago when we were on our way home from Bratislava (of course, I didn't take any pictures there *stupid*). And when we drove home with the car, I realized how nice the sunset can be and here are they are - I like them, cause you can see so many different colors in the sky. But I am content pretty fast, cause  - as I already said - I don't photograph very often.



  .... I LOVE that one!!

OMG, your cats are really sweet!! I love the pictures!
And the third one - it's an icicle, right? That one looks cool Wink

Yeah, I took mine with the mobile phone & during our drive, hence the quality Sad   ... There was full moon this night too, but I just couldn't manage to take a photo of it, because my father wouldn't stop on the emergeny lane *lool*

lol thanks..my mother says they are the "most photographed cats ever"..
well i just cannot resist taking pics of them..i love them sooo much...

yes it is an icicle..my friends and my parents at first did not know what it is
but you got it right..i took the picture last winter..

the photographs are really good considering you took them with a mobile phone..
my mobile phone has a camera..but i am useless at using it
i know how to..but it never looks good...
and if the object ot i were moving..i would never be able to do a good pic...so WOW to you.. Wink
hmm does your father not respect your art?  lol...i sound crazy...
i love taking pics of the moon as well..and of the sunset and sunrise..but i am better at taking macro pics..

One other thing - maybe post what camera was used for the pics.

I took this a few months ago with my old Olympus OM-2.  It was a sunset picture taken of the Clark Fork River near my house.

Most of my pictures are slides and I take WAY too many... lol.  If I run across something that stands out, I'll scan it.

i had to take a photo class a few years ago and it ignited my love of photography!  i don't have a very good camera, and i'm not too skilled, but i love it.

the first two were taken in an orchard at night with just my flashlight and camera



my backyard:

i love photoshop!

i love the pictorialism style, and try to recreate it.

Great pics wheredidmickgo.

The one of the rocks is strangely compelling & I really like the orchard pics.

Here's another I took the say day as my one above.  There was a flock of geese flying along, but they were a little too far out.  Plus they were handheld shots and it was getting dark.  I was surprised that they came out as sharp as they did.

Thanks - those black clouds were something else.  It was too bad that the geese (you can see them in the middle) weren't flying at me.  I liked how the clouds kind of merged with the landscape.

Hey, finally getting around to posting one or two! I have a few I could show, but lets go with these ones to start! Cheesy






~by the by, yes copyright of these pics is owned by me....

I will try and find some of my other waterdroplet, insect, and flower pictures. Just work has been so busy lately!

Would be cool to know what cameras & lens everyone is using!

Have a good day!
