    May Monthly challenge

    by Busiboy » Thu May 03, 2012 10:12 pm

    The theme for the month is

    SHAPE

    vague and open but something that is a challenge that is easily accessible and can be done by any of us in any way we wish to interpret the subject.

    There is no winner or loser so feel free to interpret as you see fit, the key objective is to not have to explain the link to the viewer.

    There is NO right or wrong way to interpret this, feel free to manipulate the subject as you wish.

    I'd rather people didn't discuss the topic and went out, shot it and submitted to see what we all come up with singularly.

    There are no rules other than no images to be posted until the end of the month.

    The theme needs to be the focus of the image, but image quality is just as if not more important. We could all go out and shoot a shape tomorrow in natural midday light, it would qualify but it isn't the objective.

    A quality image that you have a month to prepare.

    So I have 2 only 1 I wanted to actually put in, but to get things moving . . .

    Here is the one I liked.

    And here is the one I thought I liked, but wasn't happy with what I could get out of it.

    So this is just another interpretation

    Scott,

    Underground shapes is really very special. Well done!

    It might have been worthwhile with making several variations at the time to see if the emphasis could be changed but, nevertheless, you've done really well.

    Cheers,

    PS: I wonder now if I am allowed to comment in this thread. Ooops!

    Haven't been up to much lately after my brother lost his battle with cancer last week. Went for a drive today, overcast, drizzle and poor light with the intention of filling this brief. Hope this is of some merit.

    Condolences for your loss to you and the family.

    I hope that things during this time aren't harder than they have to be.

    As for your image, definitely an outside the box interpretation of the brief.

    Bugga that is a tough one

    Sorry to hear that, take care, it can take a long time to come to terms with a loss like that.
