Here we are at the 10th challenge. With some collaboration with Patrick on the subject and Leigh for the title we have a topic for this the 10th Challenge here at the Cafe. Topic = PORTION OF A WHOLE Images of animals only, but only a portion of the animal that will make the viewer immediately recognize the subject without seeing the entire animal. As usual, color, contrast, composition and all the other technical bits that make a great photo will be used to judge your photo but the "portion" will rank high in the judging criteria. Examples could be an elephants trunk, A cats eye, or perhaps zebra stripes Sample photo courtesy of "Leigh" . THE RULES: - One picture per participant - Please give your picture a Title but the title should NOT be the name of the animal. This will ensure that your image and only your image will have the desired impact on the viewer. - One can edit/change the text of the entry as often as necessary, but the posted pics are to remain unaltered once posted. - Pictures can be edited in PS but must have been taken during the submission dates. - Somewhat controversial pictures are permitted, but please use your judgment and keep it within reason. - Please include the EXIF data so that everyone can learn from your exceptional shooting skills! SUBMISSION: Submission for this challenge starts now - Saturday, July 31, 2005 at 01:16 utc/gmt And will end on - Sunday, August 14, 2005 at 23:59 utc/gmt. Pictures must be taken within this time period. To avoid time disputes the following website will be used as our time standard: http://www.worldtimeserver.com/current_time_in_UTC.aspx THE PRIZE: To celebrate this the 10th Challenge the winner will receive A 24 PACK OF blank DVDs on which to save their precious images. So. Post your submissions in the Submission Thread. When the submission time has elapsed I'll put up a voting thread and explain the voting procedure in that thread at the time it's posted. I'm sure we will see some great photos with "different" views of animals we are all familiar with. Good luck and above all else...enjoy!
