This is the next thread in the "photo of the week" contest thread 'series'. Big thanks to SLC Flyfishing for having facilitated the first one! Rules (Copied from the first thread) #1 You may submit only one photo per contest. #2 The contest runs for exactly one week, from the time stamped on the first post in the thread (this will be made by the winner of the previous week's contest). #3 Please refrain from commenting on the photos submitted in the contest. I think that a good photograph is one that can appeal to someone who may not know much about the technical aspects of photography. I think it would be best if the judge isn't swayed by someone else's opinion of the photograph. The judge will decide his/her favorite at the end of the week, place a post listing it and a short synopsis of why he/she chose that photo. The winner is then responsible for starting a new thread containing a new contest and topic which again will run for exactly one week. This weeks topic is: contrast Contrast between almost anything; don't feel limited to things like colors, shadows, etc. There can be contrast between people, ideas, places... And finally, don't feel intimidated to submit your photos . The point of these contests, as explained by SLC Flyfishing, is to have some fun and help improve our photographic skills. Whether or not you win shouldn't be your biggest concern, as it's always hard to pick one photo above the rest, and almost every photo has lots of merit in its own right. Anyway, good luck shooting, and I look forwards to seeing what you all come up with! Edit: If a moderator sees this, might he/she edit the title to read "Weekly photo contest #2 (3/17/08)"? I was in ignorance of the proper format for the thread title..
