    Photograpy Contest Mark XII

    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.

    Tell us what you did, unless it's staring us right in the face, in which case you probably shouldn't have done it ^^

    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 Mr3d_PHD, it's Statues and figurines
    You may photograph anything which is a 3D inanimate representation of any living creature. This can be a statue, an action figure, a Monopoly game piece, a rubber chicken, or a 63 foot stuffed red cat. Subject matter can be any animal, insect, human, etc.

    DEADLINE
    The deadline will, as usual, be 3 weeks, meaning we end on November 15th, 23:59 GMT +1.

    If there are any questions, just ask here.

    Now let the photography commence!

    I took this while on vacation in San Diego a couple years back. I immediately thought of it when I read the topic. Its a memorial to all the sailors who served on the aircraft carrier USS Midway


    And thats actually the Midway in the background. It was turned into a museum after being taken out of duty.

    I have a request. Could people please write what equipment and specs they've used to take their photos with? Some of us are interested in that stuff

    I have no idea what I could take a photo of for this theme, there's nothing like that around here. I have photos of statues in my archive, but I want to take new pictures if I'm gonna have an entry.

    Ok, looks like a field trip for me. I know of the perfect shot for this! That doesn't happen to me very often. Dumb question, is bracket shooting allowed? When getting sky into the shot, it really does bring things back to what you see with your eyes.
    For me, happiness is learning new things.

    (i.e. no sponge/dodge/burn, no brushes, vignetting, etc).
    My feeling that exposure fusing falls into this category and is not allowed. Otherwise we need to allow HDR and all kinds of photoshop tricks.

    Flash is allowed though... (*cough* fill flash *cough*)

    MrC, I think he means bracketing on his camera. I'm pretty sure anything you want to do via the camera itself is allowed, no?
