    Photography Contest Mark XVIII

    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_charisma 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 mr_charisma, it's Mad World.
    You should submit a photo that captures madness in the world in some way. It's ok to be provocative (that's what art is about), but please don't break any of the forum rules.




    DEADLINE
    The deadline will, as usual, be 3 weeks, meaning we end on July 4th, 23:59 GMT +2.

    If there are any questions, just ask here.

    Now let the photography commence!
    Please, call meg Johnny.

    I've got something I want to do, but I just haven't had the opportunity to take a picture yet.

    Here's something in case I don't get time to take anything else:


    This is the view out of my window in the office where I'm working for the next few months. Adelaide looks so much more dilapidated from high up, behind the shiney facades of shops and office buildings. 500D, 50mm f1.8 @ f3.5, shot RAW, converted to black and white in Lightroom, contrast and brightness adjusted.

    I'm trying to think of something, but have been drawing a blank. Hopefully I get an entry in before the deadline.

    I like it. It has a lot of interesting lines and textures.

    As I'm currently swamped, I won't be around to close this contest, so I'm extending the deadline till Wednesday July sixth. Same time, just different date.

    Here's my entry:




    Shot this with my Sony 5.1 megapixel point and shoot digital camera. Converted it to black and white in Photoshop since I liked the effect of it without color better. I call it the sign graveyard.
