Default Contest #37: Low-Angles (closed)

Please make sure you have read and understood all the rules before submitting your photos.

Remember, everyone is welcome to join in. You don't need to be an expert or to have a fancy camera, this is all just about having fun and, through that, getting better at photography.

Just please make sure you've read all the rules before sending in your pictures.

As per usual, you may submit up to two photos for this competition.

Good luck everyone!




RULES


1) The contest will run for two weeks and will end on 13th January, 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 for clarification.


4) Photos must be no larger than 800 pixels at the longest dimension and a maximum of 200k. Click here 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 will be recorded in the Hall of Fame


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

Can you please elaborate on the subject a little more.. I would have to guess to know what you mean by low angles.. Does this mean you have to say crawl under a car and look for some angles to photograph?

Try and see things from a worm's eye view. Perhaps lie on the ground at the base of a tree, crawl under a car or whatever your imagination comes up with. Does that help?

Sam is away on hols for another week I believe. I think he's overlooked this comp, but its no biggie. To organize the tribe and finally get to go on hols is usually enough hassle to make you long for home when you get there.

We all have those Griswold-at-Wallyworld moments... (btw didn't see Chevy on the Golden Globes...)

That explains

And right now I saw this on the Photographer of the year thread:

Quote:
NOTE: I am going on holiday tomorrow morning so I will not be around until the 23rd Jan.
So 13th Jan was just a spelling mistake and should read 23rd Jan..

We'll have to wait until monday then... No problem... Hope Sam enjoys his holidays and comes back full of new fresh ideas!
