Weekly Photo Contest: July 11 - July 18 (Theme: Square Composition)
Welcome to this weeks photo contest thread!
Theme: Square Composition. I'm looking for either squares in the composition or an image in an actual squared format, as in cropped square or shot naturally on square format. (And of course the square format accentuates the photo)
You may only submit one photo per contest.
Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.
The contest runs for exactly one week, starting NOW! (see time/date stamp at the start of this thread)
At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible. (Judge has 24 hours to make decision)
The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme)

St David's Cathedral's ceiling, St David's, Wales. Founded by the Welsh patron Saint and the focal point of the UK's smallest city.

***EDIT AGAIN*** used your link and it worked, thank you very much. Not sure why the link I first used stopped. Could it be because I made two extra changes in Aperture, which re-synced with flickr, hence the "_c" at the end of the URL? The third iteration of the image?

OK. Here we go. I have to try to be brief because somehow I didn't get enough hours in the day today. 24 seems to be the limit.
pmxperience I like the subject matter and extra points for squares being a main part of the composition as well as a square format also working well with the photo. The one thing I can't get past is that it's slightly off center and leaning to the right at the top.
LongSticks Very cool subject and idea for a photo. I wonder if it ever gets any different lighting in the space or what it's like at night.
salacious Interesting leading lines type photo but I really see more rectangles than squares.
sim667 I enjoyed this one. The square format works well and my mind is lead down the alley way. The snow really helps add interest. I like the Holga images when they are done well and this one is. Been tempted to get one for a while.
firedept Cool subject. Looks like this was a mobile grab or maybe a really tight crop? The colors are nice when it is small but the IQ is pretty bad when you look at it full size. +1 for squares inside of triangles though.
deep diver Nicely executed shot. Plenty of squares.
jabbot Nicely done. The square format works well with this landscape and it's nicely composed. I like the light on the cliff face of the mountain. I know you couldn't really control it but the trees in the foreground detract a little from the main subject for me. I wonder what the image was like from the waters edge?
dmax35 I like the composition but we really aren't hitting the theme of squares with this one. I'm ok with HDR but for me (my opinion only) this one is pushed a little far.
someoldguy Very cool building. Nice perspective in the photo too. With the background blasted out so much I'd like to see some early morning or late evening or even night shots so that the building really stands out.
cambookpro Neat idea. I think square crops work well for closeups and small prints. Focusing on the bubbles is a good idea too.
Nuer0genesis There are several things I like here. The square format works. The break in the trees carry your eyes deep into the photo. The layers of mountains in the background are nice and it's even cool that the branch in the center tree kind of mimics the clouds behind it.
ijohn.8.80 Nicely executed shot and on theme. I can appreciate it but it doesn't really draw me in for repeat looks.
rosmadden I think the color and tone are wonderful. Nice approach to the theme. I think either there was not enough DOF here or like me you have a lens that is kinda soft out on the edges when zoomed in. The diamond shaped things (whatever they should be called) not being in focus is a distraction.
MacCruisKeen The square format doesn't work with the composition of the image on this one for me. I like the choice of black and white though.
Apple fanboy That rubiks cube is more my speed. It's interesting because I haven't figured out exactly how you shot this. Is it resting on something? Looks like maybe two images combined into one piece?
Schtumple I like the muted tone and feel of the photo. I think it works well with the subject which seems to be the entire room. I like the square format here because a wide shot would show too much of the room to me.
acearchie The light is wonderful. The models stare into the camera is great. The composition of everything in the room works really well with the square format to me. My one criticism is the dust on the print. I'm assuming that this is one from your film camera. Normally that "acearchie" feel to a picture is very intriguing. For whatever reason in this one I'm distracted by the spots around the models face and hair.
fireman32 There's a square in there...but it's a mess. Maybe a wider composition for more context?
sagar4995 I like the format for this shot. I do like the isolated color in a B&W (I think there's a name for this?) I can't explain it but the placement of the colored donuts in the bottom left doesn't work for me. My eye keeps going to where the choco frosted ones are.
And on to the winners....
3rd place acearchie
2nd place Schtumple
1st place sim667 - This is the one I kept coming back to. It held my interest the longest. The not perfect aspects of the image came together to make it an interesting photo for me.
