March 2009 Photo Competition: Entries

March 2009 Photo Competition

Theme:
  • Reflections
    The theme was picked by our February competition winner: MrTee.
Entry Period:
  • March 1, 20009 to March 28, 6:00pm EST
Voting Period:
  • March 28, 6:00pm EST to March 31, 10:00pm EST
Discussion Period:
  • March 1, 20009 to March 31, 6:00pm EST
Voting Tabulation:
  • Vote for the 3 entries you like the best by considering how well a photo captured your attention, how well it dealt with the subject, how well it fits with the chosen theme and how well the technical details were handled.
  • Votes are weighted to give greater weight to First Place votes than to Second and greater weight to Second than to Third place votes. When you place a vote for First Place, that entry will receive four (4) points; when you place a vote for Second, that entry will receive two (2) points, and a vote for Third Place will receive one (1) point:
    • Entry X (their name) - First Place
    • Entry A (their name) - Second Place
    • Entry C (their name) - Third Place
  • In case of a tie, first place will be giving to the person with the most "first place" votes
  • If there is still a tie, first place will be giving to the person with the most "second place" votes
  • If there is still a tie, first place will be giving to the person with the most "third place" votes
  • The winner will be notified and will choose a subject for the following month.
Tips & Rules:
  • Be sure to make your entry as large as possible within the forum's restriction: usually less than 100k. Please confirm that the uploaded image is the size you desire.
  • Each member may submit only one entry for this competition however, you may change your entry (by submitting another entry in its place) up until the deadline.
  • The goal of these friendly competitions is to inspire members to grab their camera and actually use it. New photos are our goal, but we also accept recently photographed/recently processed images that fit the topic also.
  • The usual "copyright" requirements apply. You must have shot the picture or have the rights to it. Honor system applies.
  • Since this is a learning forum, we'd love to hear any shooting info you have, shutter speed, ISO, f-stop, as well as any photographic post-processing: cropping, levels, saturation, dodge/burn, etc.
  • This is NOT the forum for photo art filters or art programs - let's keep the photos looking like photos.
  • Entries may be deleted if they do not meet criteria (nudity, photo art, etc.), but we do not encourage arguing about entries -- the voters will decide which images they prefer.
  • What does the winner get? The winner gets to choose the next assignment PLUS all the accolades that come from being chosen "Winner".
  • Post your photo submissions without commentary. There is a separate thread for discussion of this assignment as well as your comments regarding any of the entries that strike your fancy.
  • All RetouchPro members may take part in the competition and all members may vote, whether they have submitted an entry or not.
