"After a little bit of thought, the theme for this month's assignment is un-natural. You can interpret that any way you like - I can think of at least two ways you could approach the assignment, and I'm sure there are more. I'd really like to see people push the boundaries on this one! But keep it clean and family-friendly - ED.


Hah! It honestly didn't cross my mind that the assignment could be interpreted in that way. But yes, clean and family-friendly is definitely the way to go :)

Also, Gordon, could you possibly edit the first rule from the cut-and-paste ('you may only submit one image') so as to remove confusion as to whether people are allowed to submit series? Cheers :)

I thought I'd get the ball rolling with an unnatural-looking tiger painted on a wall a few blocks away from my house.

I initially thought about submitting a pumped-up HDR as a typhoon passed last nightleaving some angry skies in its wake - perfect HDR subject for an unnatural look.

Nice work on the reflection Tomis - I think most of us would have just pasted them on in photoshop. It's much better and more realistic to attempt this kind of thing for real, so full respect for you there!

Tomis, previous to reading these comments I voted for your picture, it's genius and I automatically assumed it was post processing until I read your info on how you took the shot, really good!!

Thank you for the kind comments. I've had the idea for a while and wasn't sure how it would turn out. I'm very pleased with my results. You can view the image full size here for a closer look at the pupil: http://thomaslowe.com/index/About_Me_fi ... -ching.jpg

Hello Friends,
There is a tie it seems.
I have a request - would prefer to step down from any further voting. Primarily because -
1- I am very new to D photography and may be this shot was more of a beginner's luck.
2- At present I use FZ-35 and not any DSLR. At some point of time we all who love photography, like to graduate to SLRs.
3- Didn't feel good that time line for voting is over but CL has to keep this thread open.

Thank you all who could find my submission fair enough to be voted for. It is a great encouragement and highly motivating and definitely will boost me to devote more time ( albeit with the monetary risk involved :roll: )
Please do not misunderstand me. I am saying the above solely because there is a tie.Would have been lot difficult to step aside had I used a DSLR :)

May I request the moderators to break this tie.

Hi Jagadish, I think the reason the voting has been left open is not because its a tie, but probably due to the fact the Gordon and Bjorn are perhaps very busy and they have overlooked the closing date. I do not think you should think of your photo as beginners luck because with the 9 votes your photo received it was voted for obviously because people liked the photo and felt it fit the UN-NATURAL assignment perfectly. I dont think there has ever been a tie before, so i not sure how they will get around this one unless both winners pm each other with perhaps a list of ideas and can come up with one you both agree on for the next month.
Anyway, i would like to congratulate you and both Sonnyboy for a tie win.

Regards Sue

PS. Perhaps the assignment could be `JOINTS` :lol: :lol:

Once again congratulation to you both.

Thank you very much Sue.
You may be absolutely right that Gordon and Bjorn are caught up in their busy schedule and hence couldn't close the voting.
It was indeed a dilema to think that members who could vote for my entry may feel let down. More over at the stage I am, the prospect of receiving highest votes was sooo thrilling :)
Joint winners sounds great too, you know! Thanks once again.
I already feel encouraged enough to put up another challenge in the ensuing assignments ( still with the FZ35 :evil: ).

My Regards,
