1ST SEPTEMBER 2008 - AUGUST'S ASSIGNMENT IS NOW CLOSED!
Congratulations to everyone who entered, and a big welcome as always to all our first-time entries!
So now please vote for your favourite image!
The poll will run until midnight GMT on 21st September and the winner, as always, will get to choose the next Assignment - this time for October 2008.
Hello everyone, welcome to August’s Assignment!
The theme for this month is suggested by richcaw who won the June 2008 competition. In richcaw’s own words:
"I have decided to go for Trees. For me one of the fun parts of these assignments is discovering new techniques both in terms of original capture and then processing to create the final image. Therefore there are no limits on post-processing this month aside from not adding material that wasn’t in the original image.”
So there you have it, the theme for August is Trees, and as always the image you submit has to be taken during the month of entry – that is, taken during August 2008. Photos taken on an earlier date do not qualify!
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 August 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 August 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 August 2008 comments
Thanks and good luck!
