MIDNIGHT GMT 31 MARCH 2009 - SUBMISSIONS CLOSED - POLLS ARE OPEN!
VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE!
POLLS CLOSE AT MIDNIGHT GMT 21ST APRIL. THE WINNER CHOOSES THE THEME FOR MAY!
Hi everyone! Welcome to March's Assignment!
The theme for this month is "Luck", as suggested by thestig2010 who won the January 2009 competition.
In thestig2010's own words: "The first thing that popped into my head was St. Patrick's Day. So my decision for this month's theme is "Luck."
I'll leave the final interpretation up to you all, but the Merriam Webster definition of "luck" is defined as "a force that brings good fortune or adversity -OR- the events or circumstances that operate for or against an individual."
I'm not a huge fan of post processing, so lets go easy on the photoshoping. Any kind of adjustment to contrast, exposure, color balance, etc is more than welcome, but try to leave the image as natural as possible.
I'm excited!! Everyone have a wonderful month and wonderful spring!!"
So there you have it, the theme for March is "Luck", and as always the image you submit has to be taken during the month of entry – that is, taken during March 2009. Photos taken on an earlier date will be disqualified! And remember, all images submitted here must be no more than 500 pixels on their longest side.
1: The photo you submit should be taken during the month of the actual assignment - so for this month's contest, it must be taken during March 2009. Photos taken earlier will be disqualified!
2: You're only allowed to submit one image, and you can't change your mind once it's posted!
3: Images should be no larger than 500 pixels on their longest side.
As always, please exercise good judgement on what is suitable for the forum.
Please include a sentence or two with your photo describing what you were trying to achieve and if there were any particular challenges in doing so like, for example, any special exposure or lighting setup.
We're all enthusiasts here, so it's also great to see what equipment you used and the settings too. So please also include the following:
Lens and focal length:
Submissions will close at midnight GMT on 31st March 2009. The final poll will follow.
Please remember this thread is for submissions only and that posted images should be no more than 500 pixels on their longest side. If you'd like to comment on any of the submissions or ask any questions, please do so in the March 2009 comments
Thanks and good luck!
