View Full Version : Macro Photo Challenge #2: GREEN

6th of February 2006 (Mon), 15:25
As you know, the macro forum have decided to run a regular macro challenge with rotating contest organisers.

As I won the last challenge, it's down to me to run this one and I have chosen GREEN as the subject. This theme is open to any interpretation you like, be it bugs, plants, vegetables, inanimate objects - whatever you want but as this is a macro challenge it MUST be a macro shot!

Standard rules apply (see below).

Photos should be sent to:

potnmacrocontest at gmail dot com

TITLE all emails MACRO. Entries close Monday Feb 20th 8am.

First impressions are important as is a catchy title, technical competence and interesting interpretation of the subject.

I look forward to seeing all the great entries! Have fun! :D


1) The contest will run for two weeks and will end on Monday 20th February 2006 at 8:00AM GMT.

2) You can submit up to two pictures, and change these if you wish up to the time that the competition ends.

3) Post processing - nothing that substantially changes the original composition of the image. Click here (http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=96180)for clarification.

4) Photos must be no larger than 800 pixels at the longest dimension and a maximum of 200k. Click here (http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showpost.php?p=663519&postcount=26) for help on this.

5) No framing of pictures, text or copyright notices.

6) This competition is a learning experience so we ask you, where possible, to take photos espeically for the contest.

7) At the end of the competition, a separate thread will be started to seek the votes of forum members over the period of 1 week. The person with the most votes will be declared the winner. The winner should volunteer to run the next challenge.

Please be patient with me if it takes one or two days for me to get submissions posted.

Finally, please ensure that you have read this post fully and understand the rules prior to sending.

Note to the moderators...That BG(film negatives) where work is posted it is distracting from the subjects(macro photos) so it is hard to look at them...
