**** Challenge 107 - WATER ****
Aug 14, 2010

Thanks to Mateo Miller for hosting the previous challenge and for providing me with this opportunity. Previous challenge: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1034&message=35928673

The subject for the next challenge is: WATER . This remarkably simple substance is integral to all of our lives in a bewildering number of ways. Let us see how you see water.

I am looking for interesting, well exposed and composed, high quality, images depicting the theme of water in any of its states (gas/vapor, solid, or liquid) or degrees of purity. Feel free to interpret this this subject as you will; your creativity is what breathes life into these challenges. I do my level best to keep an open mind, but do remember that I only know what I can see.

Rules and a couple of examples follow.

Good luck to everyone!

Keep the following in mind:

  • This challenge ends Wednesday 25 August 2010 at 11:59 PM GMT . In my local time zone, that time corresponds to 7:59 PM EDT.

  • Reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post if you are submitting an entry and RENAME THE SUBJECT TO INDICATE THE TITLE OF YOUR ENTRY .

  • Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put a (CC) next to the title of your image [e.g. Sunset with Canada Geese (CC)].

  • Sharing EXIF data is always welcome and encouraged (embedded, linked, or summarized in your post) as it enables others to see how your image was exposed.

  • I'll be trying to judge based on a balance between artistic vision and technical execution. Higher resolution images may be beneficial for the second part of that.

R U L E S:

  • The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going.

  • You post ONE image (if you post more than one image, the first will be your entry in the challenge).

  • The host chooses a winner after closing.

  • The decision of the judge (the Host) is final.

  • The judge (the Host) is not eligible.

  • The winner then chooses the next topic, runs the challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person.

  • If the winner fails to post a new challenge within 72 hours of being declared the winner then the runner-up should post the new challenge within a further 24 hours.

  • ANY NIKON CAMERA IS ALLOWED .

  • This challenge ends Wednesday 25 August 2010 at 11:59 PM GMT . In my local time zone, that time corresponds to 7:59 PM EDT.

  • Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put a (CC) next to the title of your image [e.g. Sunset with Canada Geese (CC)].

  • Please embed your image in the thread. Try to resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (800 pixels on the longest side works best.)

Thanks to all and good luck!!

REMEMBER TO REPLY TO THE FIRST POST OF THIS THREAD! Not in-between but the FIRST .
