MIDNIGHT GMT 31ST DECEMBER 2008
SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED - LET THE VOTING BEGIN!
POLLS CLOSE 21ST JANUARY, WHEN THE WINNER GETS TO CHOOSE THE THEME FOR FEBRUARY!
Oh, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Hello everyone, welcome to December’s Assignment!
The theme for this month is "change", as suggested by shallowlife who won the October 2008 competition. In shallowlife’s own words:
"After quite some thinking I have decided that the December theme should be "change", not literally speaking, but in terms of how everything in life changes.
The following conditions have to be met:
It has to be a series of pictures - at least two, but no more than five pictures, and at least one has to be taken in December 2008.
Post processing and editing the pictures is allowed as I believe there is some skill required doing so and as it is part of creating a piece of art. GIF animations are allowed, and you can also turn your pictures into a collage if you prefer that. Again, at least one of the pictures has to be taken this month!
Also please post a few words about your pictures, not just the camera settings used when you took the picture but also what your pictures are all about."
So there you have it, the theme for December is "Change", and as mentioned above, at least one of the photos you submit MUST be taken in December 2008.
Please arrange your photos into a single image for submission here. It's up to you if they have gaps between them or are in a collage. Since there will be multiple images involved, we're increasing the maximum size of submissions for this month only to 800x800 pixels. Smaller entries are of course allowed. Remember this size is for the complete arrangement of images, not for individual ones.
1: At least one of the images in your arrangement must be taken during December 2008.
2: You're only allowed to submit one entry, and you can't change your mind once it's posted!
3: Submissions should be no larger than 800x800 pixels for this month only.
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.
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 December 2008. The final poll will follow.
Please remember this thread is for submissions only. If you'd like to comment on any of the submissions or ask any questions, please do so in the December 2008 comments
Thanks and good luck!
