Re: contest at art museum

I have an entry worked up----I don't know if it will fly -- its flowers instead of fruit and some of these folks are a bit dye hard. So we'll see

Re: contest at art museum

ok, i dont quite get this contest. from the text description it would seem to mean submit your photos, unretouched, that remind us of some impressionist work, perhaps the one posted.

yet, at least one or two of the entries are clearly touched up to look more impressionist, like that park foilage one and doing well in the contest. since the voting is by 'the people', i can only guess that others were a bit confused like myself.

so, what's the deal?

Re: contest at art museum

That's probably why mine's been rejected Craig. lol

Wonder how a photo can represent a Van Gogh though.

Re: contest at art museum

i dont see why it would, lyle. there are others in there that have obviously been retouched. so, why would they reject yours? are you sure it was rejected? did you get something formal saying it was rejected?

and if i have read their page correctly, the idea is to duplicate in a photo some impressionist piece, like the one they posted. but, somehow that seems strange. why not just go out and pose a couple folks in an outdoor cafe and voila. so, again, i dont quite get it.

I tried to give you the max stars but the rollover didn't work and wouldn't record.. I refreshed, went forward then back and tried everything I know.. the rollovers worked fine for most of the other pics but there was at least one other that did not work.. I left a message stating "I wonder how many votes you have lost".. it looks like you were climbing fast.. nice rendition for the contest.. Good Luck!!

I tend to agree Craig.. a staged scene should be a winner!

I see no other way to interpret the following from their site:
"Let your camera be your paintbrush. Use the designated Impressionist painting as your inspiration and Submit your photographic take on what it would look like today. What are the equivalents to a Monet garden view, a Renoir scene of friends having lunch together, a Van Gogh still life, or a Caillebotte streetscape? Submit your Impressionist-inspired photograph for a chance to win unique Kimbell prizes.

Re: contest at art museum

Kraellin and Ol Baldy,
The contest explanation seems clear enough that they were looking for photos but so many of the entries were photo-art that I decided to go that route. The winning entry for Monet was an artistic rendition of a photo. I don't know how close to Van Gogh an unprocessed photo can get.
