* CTF Mini Challenge #66 - Contrast *

Finally I have some time to actually sit down in front of the computer and start a new mini Challenge. Sorry about the delay people!

I have looked around my own photo gallery, and one of the things I can't really say I found much of is photos with great contrast.

Now, I don’t mean pictures that have been post processes and the contrast adjusted, but photos "of" contrast. I would therefore like to see your best shots!

Since I don’t really have any examples to show, I'll try to give a few in writing:

Old - Young
Blue - Yellow
Birth - Death
Victory - Defeat
Cold – Warm
Anything goes as long as it shows contrast.

This contest will end Monday, December 5th at 22:00 CET (Central European Time).

Hope you like the challenge and good luck!



The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You post an image. 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 contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put an asterix ( ) next to the title of the image.

Here are some guidelines:

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to display your picture title. This way, when someone comments (i.e. replies), it will read your photo's title. If all entries read "Re: CTF Mini Challenge #61"... it will 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 ( 800 pixels on the longest side works best.)

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

1. While your photo on Pbase (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.


2. Right click on the image in Pbase (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.

You may enter up to THREE pictures, but they should be within a single post. Please limit the size of your entries to conserve bandwidth. 250K or less works well.

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.
