  • Landscape
    Selected for Algarve Images, the competition winner for the month of May
Entry Period:
  • June 2, 2009 to June 27 6:00pm EST
Voting Period:
  • June 27, 2009 to June 30 6:00pm EST
Discussion Period:
  • June 2, 2009 to June 30 6:00pm EST
Voting Tabulation:
  • Vote for the 3 entries you like the best by considering 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:
    • First Place 4 points
    • Second Place 2 points
    • Third Place 1 point
  • 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 via retouchpro.com's private messaging 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.
  • Each member may submit only one entry for this competition but you may change your entry up until the deadline.
  • 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 have the technical details: shutter speed, ISO, f-stop etc.
  • This is NOT the forum for photo art filters or art programs and this is NOT the place to showcase your abilities with layers, masks, collages or overlays of multiple images.
  • Entries may be deleted if they do not meet criteria.
  • The winner gets to choose the next assignment PLUS all the accolades that come from being chosen "Winner".
  • Please post your photo submissions without commentary and instead use the Discussion thread for comments on your photo or other photographer's photos.
  • All RetouchPro members may take part in the competition and all members may vote, whether they have submitted an entry or not.

Re: June 2009 Photo Competition: Entries

Too funny Frank. I have moments like this one all the time. It is nice to see someone else have a hiccup of the fingers for a change. No harm. No foul. No problem.

As I stated in the previous entry, I'm actually on my way to Utah's Canyonlands next week for more photo ops, but sadly, will be without a computer for the rest of the month. Therefore, I'm submitting one from Canyonlands two years ago.

F-8
Shutter speed - 160th
ISO - 100
70 mm on a 24-105 mm
Canon 40D

Enjoy,

Janet

This landscape is of Wangum Falls outside of Hawley, Pennsylvania. The Pana FZ18 was set to auto which recorded it at 125s@f.8. Try as I might I was unable to get much contrast into the big white cloud.

This was taken on the way to El Chorro, Antequera district, north Malaga.
The lake is most unusual being turqoise, the only problem was, parking so it was a case of jump out, point / pray and leap back into car before being mown down by a herd of speeding spanish goats

ISO 200
F:11

Re: June 2009 Photo Competition: Entries

I took this a couple of weeks ago, and stitched it together. It was hand held, and I was hoping for better light, but we didn't have time to wait or come back. This is Deadmans Hill near Petoskey in northern Michigan.
Nikon D40
18-55mm lens
set to Auto
