***Mini-Challenge 324 - Part of the Whole***
Apr 14, 2012

Thanks Sueanne for your "Shadows and Light" challenge and picking my photo for the winner! I'm going to keep with a similar photography-type theme as opposed to a subject based theme.

Sometimes a picture is more captivating if it includes just a portion of the whole scene, whatever that may be. While viewers are drawn to more detail, they might also wonder "What does the rest of the scene look like?" Or even, "What is that?"

You can choose any subject. It can be a closeup, zoomed in original shot, or a crop from an original. Color, B&W or monotone. No extra points for macros but they're okay too.

Your challenge is to arouse our interest (especially the judges' ;)) with your Part of the Whole images.

This challenge will close at 6:00pm Mountain Daylight Time (00Z GMT) on Saturday the 21st of April.

Standard Rules

The host gives you a topic of interest. You post a maximum of three images. 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 (because we like to know).

Feel free to comment on other contestant’s images. If you want people to give you constructive criticism, ask for C&C.

The host chooses the winner. The host's decision is final. The host is not eligible.

The winner then hosts the next challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person. The winner has 48 hours to post the new challenge. If that doesn't happen 2nd place has 24 hours to do so, and if that doesn't happen it's up to the 3rd place winner.

Posting Guidelines

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to display your picture titles and/or your name. This way, when someone comments (i.e. replies), it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: * Mini-Challenge xxx * …" 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).

You may enter up to 3 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 around 1200 pixels on the longest dimension. This is to let those with smaller monitors to see your image at full resolution. Please limit the file size of your entries to conserve bandwidth.

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.
