    Challenge no. 189- Spots and Stripes

    Challenge number 189 Spots and Stripes

    I’m looking for an image that has as its subject a strong presence of spots or stripes – or both together if you want

    This can be as already made eg ladybird, tiger, an article of clothing or as discovered while out and about- such as the stripes made by a plough in a field

    As ever I am open to a flexible interpretation.

    In particular I encourage newcomers to the forum, or the shy ones who have not yet posted, to have a go. It’s just for fun and I will give friendly and constructive comments, bearing in mind my strictly amateur status.

    The prize is the honour of standing on our virtual podium

    Judging will be based on the following:-

    * fulfilling the brief
    * a good photo based on composition, focus and exposure..
    * 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.
    • Please use 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 max (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 Sunday 25th September.

    This should be enough time to get your thinking caps on, take your masterpiece and then finalise it in PP

    Have a go..... why not ?

      So far only only one entry which is a disappointing response

      However as the last couple of weeks have been somewhat on hold due to the Queen's demise, I propose to extend the closing date by 2 weeks

      NEW CLOSING DATE :- midnight Sunday 9th OCTOBER

      Canon EOS R5, R6 plus the usual suspects ......


        Sorry Bo, just thought closing was this coming weekend, will get an entry in before new closing date. Dave
