Challenge and Image content question

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by bendheim, Jul 3, 2005.

  1. Hi all
    I see the challenge is closing in a few hours. I haven't been out shooting for a while but yesterday I shot a few at a fashion show at a big Horse Racing Event (I hate horse racing).

    I've got one shot of a model or part thereof that's a bit "cheeky", literally, but I personally don't find it offensive.

    I've checked the forum rules, but not wishing to break them or offend anyone - would it be a problem to enter it? It's not porno or anything, but it is "cheeky" .

    Should I or shouldn't I?

    My opinion, purely from the "peanut gallery", is to post the image. If you believe in your common sense that it is art and not pornographic or otherwise offensive...then post the image.

    Just my honest 2 cents.....

    Send it to me, Peter ;c)

    I'll let you know if it's ok to post! :wink:
  5. Ok, I'll post it...and if it offends, it can be removed el pronto!
    Steve, why did I think you'd say that?!
  6. Oh well, I got the timezone thing wrong

    And missed the challenge. Sigh. But here it is anyway. The fashion parade at the Durban July Handicap, South Africa's biggest horse racing event, is more important then the race, I suspect, for most of the spectators.

    It's not hard to understand why...

    Man, that IS borderline,

    but it's just, and I mean just ok... by me! :wink: I say give Bendhiem the 1st prize right now! :wink: I'm incurable & insufferable, aren't I?! :shock:
  8. Steve, you have my vote as a moderator, anyday. Even that mutt on your avatar is looking a trifle interested ! Gotta admit, she is kinda cute ! And it is in a VERY public place with about 12 000 spectators.
