September 2007 Photo Assignment -- Competition with Voting


The subject for this month's competition has been chosen by the 1st Place WINNER of our August competition -- fpellerin AKA Frank Pellerin!


The theme for September 2007 is "Reflections". That should allow for a variety of treatments -- indoor shots/outdoor, cityscape/landscape, with people/animals/flora.

Deadline for submitting your image: Friday September 28th, 2007 at 12 pm EDT.

The goal of these friendly competitions is to inspire members to grab our camera and actually use it. New photos are our goal, but we will accept recently photographed/recently processed images that fit the topic also.

If you can share, we'd love to hear when you shot the image, any shooting info you have (shutter speed, ISO, f-stop, filters used, post-processing (normal photo processing allowed - sharpening, adjust exposure -- this isn't the place for Photoshop art filters [we have forums for that too!])

Feel free to add info about what/where you shot, and why you chose your subject/composition, etc. when you post your image in this thread.

What does the winner get? The winner gets to choose the next assignment PLUS gets all the nice accolades that come from being chosen "Winner".

Post your photo submissions in this thread, and we'll have the separate thread for discussion of this assignment and your comments regarding any of the entries that strike your fancy.

Again, we'll let all RetouchPro members take part in the voting, whether they have submitted an entry or not.

Re: September 2007 Photo Assignment -- Competition with Voting

Don't know I'm going to be able to get anything this month that will fit the brief, but this is one I took a few months back when I was in Scotland.

If I take something this month that's OK I'll post it instead.

Re: September 2007 Photo Assignment -- Competition with Voting

Here is a pic I thought would be a bit different. It was taken through glass while we were wandering down the street a couple of months ago. I like the way the mountains and trees and powerlines are reflected.

This photo was taken last spring using a Panasonic lumix LC1
It has a Leica lens that was probably set at 28 mm.

Decided to play today with some shiny objects -- learned some things that might help me do it better the next time I try it, but I'll put this one up today.
