1ST AUGUST - SUBMISSIONS CLOSED - VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE!!
Hi everyone! Welcome to July's Assignment!
The theme for this month is "Village / Small town life", as suggested by caesartg who won the May 2010 competition. Be sure to read the whole post for the rules.
In caesartg's own words:
"The theme for July is 'Village / Small town Life'. Any kind of photography is fine. The definition of village or small town here is a community with a small population. [If you have any questions regarding the size, please ask in the comments and questions thread - Gordon]
As usual the main rules apply, but if you want to submit a series of strongly linked photos depicting a narrative/slice-of-life/'haiku moment' of some kind (E.g. See the October 2009 assignment), then obviously you can have more than one photo in your submission post.
Please add the usual details under the photo plus detail any post-processing. Further details and description would be great (E.g. Location, time of day, how you came to take the photo, preparation, technique, accidental aspects that had a bearing - anything that you think is relevant is probably interesting to folk here).
I'm looking forward to seeing these - grew up in a village but now live in Taiwan's highly vertical metropolis. Oh, for mossy slated rooftops, the far-off bleat of a sheepie and the wafting scent of freshly-spread cow poo!"
1: You can only submit one image and it has to be taken during July 2010. Photos taken earlier will be disqualified!
2: All images submitted must be no more than 500 pixels on their longest side, although you can include a link to a full resolution version if you like. Flickr users must link back to the original version to comply with its latest rules.
As always, please exercise good judgement on what is suitable for the forum. See the Forum Rules for guides.
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 July 2010. 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 July 2010 Comments and Questions thread!
Thanks and good luck!
