###CTF challenge 113 - Blur ###
Jun 20, 2006

Firstly thanks to Jim for hosting the last challenge. There were a lot of wonderful photos.

Now to the next challenge. The topic is BLUR.

I want to see blurry shots. I don't think it happens in this forum in particular but I sometimes get bored with all the talk about whether my picture is sharp or not. Photos are worth more than sharpness. So lets see them.

Now, I don't mean simply OOF or bokeh blur. The photo must have a component of blur in it and obviously the blur plays a major part of the subject/story....etc.

The challenge will run for 9 days. Starting now Tues June 20th and ending Thurs June 29th at 17:00h (GMT).

THE RULES

The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You post your image(s). The host chooses the winner. The decision of the judge (the host) is final. The judge is not eligible. The winner then chooses the next topic, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person.

Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera.

You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo. Feel free to comment on other contestants' images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put an asterisk ( ) next to the title of the image.

Here are some guidelines:

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to display your name or picture titles. This way, when someone comments (i.e. replies), it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: Mini Challenge 111"... it would be very boring to scan the list.

Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website). Also try and resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll ( 650 pixels on the longest side works best.)

And how do you embed a picture? I'm glad you asked:

1. While your photo on Flickr (or any other web site) is open, copy the URL address from the address box on your tool bar, then paste it into your reply thread. Add a .jpg extension to get the photo to show up. Click on preview to make sure it's what you want.

Or

2. Right click on the image in Flickr (or where ever you've hosted it), click on "Properties"..., highlight the link with the .jpg extension on it, and paste it into your message text. Provide any additional information you want.

As a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original
post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos.

As usual, if you appreciate constructive criticism, put a star ( ) at the end of the subject line of your entry.

The challenge begins now and ends on the deadline prescribed above.

You may enter up to three pictures, but try to put them within a single post. Please give a title to each photo... this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.

Please size your photo no bigger than 650 pixels on the longest dimension. This is to let those with smaller monitors to see your image at full resolution.

Please limit the size of your entries to conserve bandwidth. 150K or less works well. Again, as a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos.
