    Photography Contest XL: Water

    The theme is "Water"

    Anything that involves or is water.


    The Deadline is 16th April 23:59 GTM+1

    For those of you wondering when that'll be in your local timezone, just go here: http://wwp.centraleuropeantime.com/


    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 ^^

    If you want to, feel free to share your settings and how you arrived at your final photo.


    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?

    By posting them here in this thread. 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


    If there are any questions, just ask here.

    Now let the photography commence!

    Anyone has an interesting idea what to take a picture of?

    I have always wanted to shoot a drop of water hitting the surface - either water or solid like glass or something. Currently I'm trying to figure out how to let the drops fall and trigger the camera at the same time which is surprisingly difficult if you're doing it alone.

    I know the feeling. I've done that before (filled the sink with water and let the tap drip) and found that it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I found it took more timing than anything, and so just letting the tap drip and knowing when it was coming, you just keep taking shots until one works and looks good. I don't think I still have mine around... if I did, I could show it to you.

    I have an idea still and need to execute it... Might get messy...

    Since not a single photograph has been submitted. I'm prolonging the deadline until I find time to do my entry (the drop of water) which should be tomorrow.

    My entry for this contest, albeit with a small time delay

    Background story of the image:
    I made this image in April. I found it recently and thought that it should be posted for the sake of concluding this contest or, hopefully, reviving it.

    The image shows the rain as it shallowly covers the ground at the meeting point of the street with the -somewhat worn out- pavement.
    As for edits, the image was cropped to hide cars that were still visible.
