August Competition - New Beginnings

Post by Albee (Admin) on Thu Jul 24, 2014 4:23 am

Remember the image must be taken in the month of August, but you have a few days to start thinking about it. Don't interpret it too literally, sunrises, babies (people and animals), spring growth.... there are many options here.

Post your images in this thread, or if you have any issues doing that email them to me and I'll enter them for you.  albeephoto@clear.net.nz

Okay, I'll kick things off with 7 week old baby Azaria. Remember you can change your entry up until the 25th.

It's not about the beginning, but how well you end.  "Poppy" photograph taken outside a court house building in New Plymouth.  Quite ironic really such a harsh exterior or start to life with a beautiful end.

A new night begins. Unedited and straight off my camera, im not a fan of editing the hell out of photos (but some of them do look great).

How did you try and do it Aaron? You can't directly upload into the form yet, you have to host them offsite (flickr, facebook, picasa, etc) and then copy the url into the link box. If you have problems please send me the image and I will upload it on your behalf. Fuzzy was having problems too, but he got it sorted in the end.

Hey Aaron

You can get hosting via the forum if you use the "host an image "icon which is to the left of the "insert an image" icon.

I am thinking about making the competition anonymous to avoid personalities tainting a fair voting. That means all images would be sent to me and I would post them all each month.

What do people think?

I would like to think we wouldn't need to keep things anonymous, but then I don't know many of the other group members  Wink I am happy to go with your idea though if others agree. It might also help those who are having 'upload' difficulties.

Not fussed at this point.  Happy to go with the majority.
At present with such a small group we are likely to know who has posted as there will be other similar shots around on Facebook or Flickr.
People would have to remember to leave off their ID tags too.  The big "Albee Photography" is a bit of a give away   Wink

Like others I am not worried either way. I don't see it being an over-riding factor in knowing who has submitted a photo, and I don't believe that peoples objectivity would be clouded by who submitted a photo. We all seem to be here for the same reason, to enjoy and improve our collective photographic skills.
