    Photography contest Mark IX

    What are the rules?

    No photoshopping allowed, besides cropping and changing a picture to B&W or Sepia, and making panoramas.
    Post production editing is allowed. The editing done should be global, such as contrast, brightness, or overal tonal balancing (i.e. no sponge/dodge/burn, no brushes, vignetting, etc). Filters are prohibited. Any global editing should be used only to enhance the features that were captured in the shot to begin with. The only exception is converting to B&W or sepia.

    You MUST post your original image. Failure to do so WILL result in you being disqualified!

    Tell a bit about your image, and how you approached taking it.


    What equipment do I need?

    Well, as long as it can capture light and produce an image you can share with others, be it a analog camera, digital camera or maybe a cellphone camera, you are good to go.

    How do we submit the pictures?

    To make things easier for all of us, the kind and superior being that is mr_charism has supplied a 3dbuzz photo contest script that magically makes your images 3dbuzz-forum-friendly! I suggest using that, but you are of course free to choose any imagehost you like!

    For those that intend to use the magic that mr_charisma conjured, the link is http://www.20papercups.net/image_upload


    The theme

    As decided by Scott M C4D , it is INSECTS!

    big or small, flying or creapy crawly type. It's high summer here and there are lots of insects flying around, bees.. butterflies, moths, flies. Crawling type... spiders, ants, beetles..millipeads, centipeads, and ladybirds and what ever else that is an insect. Restrictions are that they must not be mutilated in any way ( see exception below ). The exeption is if it's another insect that has mutilated it, i.e. a spider eating a fly.

    DEADLINE
    The deadline will, as usual, be 3 weeks, meaning we end on July 27th, 23:59 GMT +2.

    If there are any questions, just ask here.

    Now let the photography commence!

    The subject is insects?
    Does that include politicians?

    (Because you know, they sure bug me.)

    mr smiley, I'm not sure using a shoe is the best way to have your subject stand still AND look presentable

    And no, politicians do not count as insects, even though I see where you are coming from!

    Well, being the middle of winter here, the bugs aren't exactly out in force. So for now, here is an entry from me, taken earlier in the year.


    Unmodified, other than a tighter crop.

    they are all over the place so I though I would try and take a pic of one
    it took me about 20 plus shots just to try and get something not to blurry, the little bugger wouldn't stay still
    so far this will be my entry it is a bit bright right now I just took the shot a minute ago so if I am allowed to dim it a little I might later

    elevating to new levels of knowledge (that's the plan at least )

    I took this pic awhile back at a butterfly garden.


    I'll just make this one my entry my camera is not good enough to get any good ugly closeup shots, besides butterfly's there is some cockroaches but I can't take a picture of a squished cockroach and the lizards eat all the other bugs here
    I guess I could go piss off a fire ant nest and get about a million of them in a pic but that is not as exciting a pic
