    Challenge 159 - Two's company

    Challenge 159 - Two's company

    With February 14th just around the corner, a chap's fancy turns to love, romance and couples and all that.

    So couples is the theme, but rather than limit this challenge to the human aspect of that, I would also like to open it out to other interpretations, whether animal, vegetable or mineral, of what might constitute a couple or a pair. I'm not necessarily looking for symmetry, but also for images which show two things which clearly relate to each other, belong together or are commonly associated with each other. Please interpret this as broadly as you wish!

    For those new or shy on this forum, I would encourage you to enter. Hopefully in doing so you will challenge yourself and have a bit of fun at the same time.

    Please bear in mind that I am neither an expert, nor a judge, just an enthusiast.

    Judging will be based on :-

    * fulfilling the brief
    * a good photo based on composition, focus and consideration to the light.
    * Having impact. Will I remember your image after I go away from the computer?

    The usual rules apply:-

    • The competition subject shall be selected by the winner of the preceding competition who will also judge the competition.
    • One picture per person; images should conform to general image posting rules.
    • All entries to be shot with a Canon EOS camera i.e. SLR / DSLR / M & R series
    • Posted images should be taken during the running period of the competition. Any images submitted that were taken before the competition started, or after the competition has ended, will be deemed invalid.
    • Images 800 pixels widest maximum (to help those with small monitors).
    • No Photoshop frames and borders.
    • Include a title; the image must convey the theme without title description.
    • Please, NO comments on images- on this or another thread- until the round is over.
    • No canvassing e.g. “I’m thinking of posting this image for the challenge, what do you think?”
    • I will pick 1st, 2nd and 3rd favourite images (please don’t PM me to discuss my choices).

    Closing date for entries is midnight Saturday 29th February

    Good luck,
