February 2010 Photo Competition: Entries

Theme:
  • Animal(s) in motion
    As Southbay puts it, "i.e. birds in flight, cats on the prowl, dogs playing. Not a static shot, the action should be apparent or implied"
Entry Period:
  • February 1, 2010 to February 25 6:00pm EST
Voting Period:
  • February 25, 2010 to February 28 6:00pm EST
Discussion Period:
  • February 1, 2010 to February 28 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.

I know these birds are considered ugly; but in flight, they are majestic and soar with grace and beauty.

Enjoy, and Happy Shooting...

Portrait mode, with the flash on but out put reduced.
18 - 55 mm lens

My cat use to jump way off the ground for cheese and bologna, but she is getting to old, now she just grabs at it when you get it within range.

Re: February 2010 Photo Competition: Entries

I took this photo with my Sony DSC H50 Ultrazoom Camera
Further details are
Shutter Speed:1/160 sec
F Number :5.6
focal length :78mm
Iso Value :100
Metering Mode:center weighted


One of the varieties of sparrow (known in tamil as chittu kuruvi) is fast vanishing and is in the verge of extinction. Surprisingly we found a lot of them at the streets of Vellalar Theru in Puducheri, India. I donot care if this photo wins or not but atleast it should provide some information for others to save this fast vanishing bird.

Re: February 2010 Photo Competition: Entries

Went out into the yard with the cats and set my shutter speed down to 1/60th to show some blurring if I caught them in motion. Missed a hummingbird "right in my face" (too surprised and appreciative of its beauty to shoot), got static shots AFTER the action, and finally, Tig jumped up to the table when I was ready.
