May 2009 Photo Competition: Entries

May Photo Competition

Theme:
  • Flowers
    The theme was picked for our April competition winner: Sweetlight.
Entry Period:
  • May 1, 20009 to May 28, 6:00pm EST
Voting Period:
  • May 28, 20009 to May 31, 6:00pm EST
Discussion Period:
  • May 1, 20009 to May 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
  • If there is still a tie, first place will be giving to the person that first posted his/her entry
  • 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. Honour 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.
  • This is NOT the place to showcase your abilities with layers, masks, collages or overlays of multiple images. The intent is to showcase the photograph and not the skills of the photographer during post processing.
  • 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.

Re: May 2009 Photo Competition: Entries

Although my favorite photo subject is flowers, this assignment was difficult. I have so many to choose from, especially as I'm in the process of replacing a lot I took with an inferior camera.

F 3.5
ISO 100
1/250th of a second

Enjoy,

Janet

Re: May 2009 Photo Competition: Entries

To tell you the truth, after spending the day at Keukenhof last month I was kinda sick of flowers, lol.

I took this one today of a wildflower. There were some 'stowaways'. :-)
