MIDNIGHT GMT 31ST JULY 2008 - THE ASSIGNMENT IS NOW CLOSED!
Congratulations to everyone who entered, especially all the first-timers in this section - it's great to have you on-board. So the huge poll above contains no fewer than 72 entries to choose from, and as always it's tough with only one vote each - so make yours count!
As always, the poll closes in three weeks at midnight GMT 21st August 2008. The winner will then have one week to set the theme for the following month, September's Assignment.
Now get voting!
Hello everyone, welcome to July’s Assignment!
The theme for this month is suggested by Georgie2H who won the May 2008 competition. In Georgie2H’s own words:
"I quite like the idea of Minimalism, as suggested by (fellow forum member) Lorraine.”
Georgie2H made no preferences in terms of post processing, so feel free to manipulate your image, but do tell us what you’ve done. The main rule as always is the image submitted has to be taken during the month of entry – that is, during July 2008.
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 July 2008.
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.
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 2008. The final poll will follow.
Please remember this thread is for submissions only and that posted images should be around 500 pixels on their longest dimension. If you'd like to comment on any of the submissions or ask any questions, please do so in the July 2008 comments
Thanks and good luck!
