Challenge: Viewpoint (runs 11th June to 11th July)

Discussion in 'Forum Competitions and Themes' started by EightBitTony, Jun 4, 2018.

    Photograph something common from an uncommon viewpoint (it's a cliché, but we've got to start somewhere).

    The photo must still be interesting to look at and well composed.

    Starts 00:01 11th June (any posts before that will be ignored).
    Ends 23:59 11th July (any posts after that will be ignored).

    Two photographs per person max.

    One must be from your archives (pre- 11th June 2018). One must be new (between 11th June 2018 and 11th July 2018).

    You don't have to enter both an archive and a current shot, you can choose to enter only an archive shot, only a current shot, or both an archive and current shot. Your choice.

    The last photograph in each category (archive / new) for each person will be used, so if you enter multiple times, make sure your last shots are the ones you care about. i.e. only your last posted shot in each category (archive / new) will be counted.

    There will be two winning images, one archive and one new. All judging is by me. Judging is final. There is no prize.​

    I picked the times so that it doesn't start / stop with the monthly theme, to keep announcements clearer. And I'm serious, I'll ignore anything posted before the 11th June!

    Each person can post two photographs at most. One from their archives, and one from the period in time.

    However, if a person decides to post 10 photographs, 3 of which are archive shots and 7 of which are current, I'll take their last archive shot, and their last current shot as their entries.

    Summary: If you feel obliged to enter multiple times, only your last entry counts.

    You don't _have_ to post an archive shot and a current shot.

    You can post any combination of,

    1 archive shot
    1 current shot
    1 archive shot and 1 current shot

    There are 7 days where you could add to your existing 60 year archive to choose from?

    But who on earth would take a picture of something common from an unusual angle? Let alone take a picture of something common. I have said that I'm not the creative sort.

    Ah - I obviously stopped reading the instructions after the two pictures - archive and not archive. I'm supposed to be concentrating on something else not reading the forum.

    Get your thinking hats on - starts tomorrow. Common things, from uncommon viewpoints. You can each post a single archive shot (if you like) and a single new shot (if you like) and there'll be one overall archive winner and one overall new winner. Let me know which shot is which! You can post only an archive or only a new shot if you like you don't have to post both.
