Next monthly contest suggestions

Last edited Sun Mar 22, 2020, 08:45 AM - Edit history (2)

I have scanned both threads from previous contests in an attempt to find something different.

First concept is a favorite of mine, and that is 'bokeh', the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light".

Next, 'frame/frames', could be trees framing a scene, picture frames, carpentry, or millions of other subjects

'Bodies of Water'

'Rain/Spring Showers'

'Fog'

'Coffee'

I set the time limit to 2 weeks, if it becomes apparent less time is needed, we can just go!

1. Hey love :-)

So you will be deciding the theme for the April contest as March is the seasonal one, and lucky old you I am hosting the April contest. I get very excited about it and market the shit out it!!! I will however also be on a cruise once I have announced the theme, and will open it up as soon as I get back so I may need you to do some promoting in my absence!!!! Well done on the win. Your photo was stunning!!!!! As I said on the announcement thread, my SO told me not to even bother entering cause you so had it in the bag!!


Oh and I love the framing idea. Big fan of it!

2. Thanks Soph!

Although I'm a little sheepish about your not entering, but oh so proud of the win.

4. I have just spent the last 2 hours going through my archives

looking for shots that would qualify for the bokeh theme and I still have over 2 years of photos to look at! It's going to be a tough choice.

What a fun way to spend some time stuck at home!
