Hi everyone! Welcome to September's Assignment!
The theme for this month is "Welcome to our curious but beautiful world", as suggested by robbon44 and 4xxxx who won the July 2012
competition. Be sure to read the whole post for the rules.
In robbon44 and 4xxxx's own words:
"We have had a bit of a chat and we are both pretty new to this but we think we have an idea for the assignment.
Staying slightly topical we thought that with the mars rover landing and taking photos of an alien world, of what and how would an alien race take photos of our world if they landed here.
So our theme would be "welcome to our curious but beautiful world".
We are looking for people to show photos of what they think our world represents, its technical advances, its natural wonders, its inhabitants from an outsiders point of view. This can be scientific or it can be social curiosity. If you arrived here today what would you see that you think is worthy of taking some further interest in or think wow thats just strange. As a side line why not try taking a photo of your environment as maybe the rover is of mars..
It may be a little open to interpretation but we like the fact that the openness may encourage more people to enter with photos of what they see as being representative of our wondrous, quirky and possibly whacky but most definitely beautiful world.
With respect to rules we simply ask that photos be kept as simple as possible, let the image do the talking and keep post processing as simple as you can. Mild HDR is fine as is slight coloring but the idea is we show off our planet in its natural beauty."
