Re: July 2009 Photo Competition: Entries

Did my feeble mind miss something once again? Last thread I read said "no photo competition this month"?
Palms, help again please.

Sorry for the mixup.

Flotsam - may I make a suggestion?
I think if you straightened your photo it would have more impact.
I like the idea, and I think cemeteries are very interesting places.

Thanks for your comment Cathy.
I left the angle of the shot exactly as I took it.
It looks like it isn't level but there is nothing in this graveyard that is.
The ground is slightly undulating and nearly all the graves have sunk to some degree. Some one way, some the other. Difficult to find a level.
I know it doesn't look quite right but that's the way it is.

Re: July 2009 Photo Competition: Discussion

ok, so maybe you could find a spot where it shows the various angles and undulations.
I'm not trying to be picky, just suggestions to try again. A little push and encouragement.

I'm still looking for something worth posting for this contest.

I don't think you are being in the least bit picky.
Yours was a perfectly valid comment and it is appreciated.
I suppose I just liked a shot of looking down a pathway and everything just fell in around that. I have quite a few others of that graveyard and may submit one of them. I think we can change our entry. In the meantime I will return and see if I can get a better shot of the same scene.

I've looked at each & every photo...they're great. I didn't contribute so I won't be able to vote, which would be exceedingly difficult under any circumstances. Happy this month to watch & learn.

Who said you couldn't vote?
Did you read the rules?

The last "bullet" states:
All RetouchPro members may take part in the competition and all members may vote, whether they have submitted an entry or not.
