****** Challenge #75: Isolation *******

Thanks, The Lone Shooter. I've won three or four of these in the past & they're always fun. I appreciate you choosing mine among the fine entries in the last challenge.

This next challenge is called "Isolation". I am looking for high quality, technically good photos depicting isolation or an image 'or color' of a subject or subjects appear to be isolated. Make it appear to the viewer that they feel isolated from the outside world. Also, shallow depth-of-field shots where you isolate the subject are welcome, such as the yellow warning signs or the sculpture below.

Please treat this challenge as a contest and submit your best work. I have a discerning eye and I don't miss many details. Retouching is fine but avoid outright manipulation. Share EXIF (camera, settings...etc) information in your entry.

The challenge will end on Wednesday, March 25, 2009. (11:59 PM EST)

Examples of "Isolation":

Don't forget - Please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post if you are submitting an entry and please RENAME THE SUBJECT TO INDICATE THE TITLE OF YOUR ENTRY.

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 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.

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!!
