This is the third 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: Technology In Our World This is a broad topic that can go in many directions, and include many different styles of photos. Old, rusty technology to cutting edge digital to medical technology, etc. etc. or it's uses. It's a wide-open topic, so don't hold back. Try to avoid basic product shots if you can, because that's another topic, unless the picture is more about technique than simply the object in the shot. If you show me your iPod, make it interesting somehow. Bottom line: it's up to you how you see the topic. It probably would help me evaluate the photos (and hopefully, since this is a learning thread where everyone who participates is a winner...) if each photographer said a few words about his/her own photo. This should be a fun topic, and I'm looking forward to what all of you come up with. This can be a fun, creative exercise as long as we realize it is an opportunity to share ideas, rather than a competition. When I choose a photo to close this week's 'contest' it will be not so much because it is the best photo, but because somehow I saw enough merit in the photo to hand the assignment of running the next exercise over to it's creator.
