    Challenge 164 - Greenscape

    I love being outside in open spaces, the air seems clearer and the greenness restores body and soul (unless it is raining or blowing a gale!), so this month’s challenge is Greenscape.

    I would like an image of your favourite greenscape, the place you like to walk or visit; this can be for example your garden, a city square or park, forest, the countryside or a stately house garden or parkland. For those in apartments and unable to leave their confines, I’m sure you’ll have window boxes and houseplants - your chance to use your creativity. The image must convey the essence of the green space.

    Having only joined the forum in April of this year myself to take up the challenge of improving my limited photography experience, I am a ‘newbie’ and wholeheartedly encourage everyone new or shy to join in.
    The monthly competition challenges your thinking (it gets those grey cells working!) and is a great way to come up with new ideas for photographs.
    I have learnt a lot from taking part and the friendly feedback.


    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?

    I'll do my best to give friendly and constructive comments and find a winner based on my criteria stated above, bearing in mind my strictly amateur status, limited experience, and I have absolutely no qualifications other than I know what I like.

    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).

    The closing date for entries is midnight on Saturday, 8th August 2020 (for those lucky enough to live in Scotland this period includes a bank holiday).

    Good luck and above all have fun, I look forward to seeing your entries.

    Rose.

              Given this is a competition I should say that this was actually taken on a grey flat morning, the sky and rays were added in post processing within Luminar 4.
