CAFE CHALLENGE #5 Official Submission Thread

Discussion in 'Challenge and Contests Forum' started by Boobie Joe, Mar 22, 2005.

  1. In this thread, you will post your submissions.

    We should keep the comments off of this thread. For comments, I will open a new thread in a few days so we can start commenting on the pictures.


    When entering a submission, do not forget to include a title

    Have great fun everyone.
  2. In your mind

    The original picture is an ink drop (one eye) and in PS I simply multiplied it to make an abstract figure. I hope it falls within the rules.

    I had an opportunity to shoot AMA Superbike testing at Laguna Seca on Tuesday (played hooky from work). Unfortunately, it poured rain all night the night before and we had to wait around for hours for the track to dry.

    I think this qualifies as an abstract view of a very abstract piece of machinery:

    Night view from the Brewery

    On our vacation Patrick and I visted the Riverwalk Brewery in Jacksonville. It was fun 8) This was taken looking toward Jacksonville Landing and that is a whole adventure in itself which i'll explain later.


  7. This picture was taken at the Montreal Congress center at a polished metal ceiling. The colors came from tinted bay windows and interior lights. PS used for cropping and adjustments of contrast and brightness.

  17. Angels Fan

    What I did here was to take an image of an Angels fan (purposely overexpose it) and inside Nikon Capture, use the "Show lost highlights" feature and capture that image. There are NO other modifications that have been made to the image.

    Hope this is inside the competitions spirit and boundaries.
