>>>>>Challenge 185-ABSTRACT<<<<<

I've decided to go with the theme Abstract. I like the idea that some of you are masters at abstract and others (including me) might really like to push ourselves to do something a bit different than our norm. I think it stretches our artistic level of photography in a good direction. As I was trying to decide what would get some photography juices flowing, I ran across this blog that explains the meaning or feeling of abstract way better than I can. After reading this, I thought "Yes, this looks fun!" so hope you all agree.


The competition runs from now, May 24, 2012 to 9pm (GMT) on Monday, June 4, 2012.

At that time the galleries will be closed and the voting will commence with a new thread.
Voting period from 9pm (GMT) June 4th to June 6th.

The winner in the competition gallery will host the next challenge

Newcomers are totally welcome and encouraged to join the fun. Just post here if you need assistance to get images into the gallery or if you are not certain what's going on. We all started off clueless and make the same mistakes.

To post a photo in any of the galleries, just select the gallery of choice from below: Competition or Exhibition or Originals. On the top of the page you will see "edit this gallery", click on that and it will ask for a password. Enter "kickass" (don't ask, just keep it lower case) and you should be able to make it from there. If you still need assistance, ask and you shall be answered. Sometimes the answer is even the right one!

Add your name after the title (makes voting easier). (To make image sizes manageable, we need to max out at 750 pixels square, which is still more pixels than the usual 800x600.) And make sure the size is still max 200k. Pbase lets us run these challenges free on their website, so please respect this by keeping your file size reasonable. Ensure the EXIF data is intact for the competition, with the date it was taken.

Starting gallery - contains the other galleries and a link to the general rules:

Competition gallery - for pictures taken to the theme with a 4/3 or µ4/3 camera, during the entry time May 24-June 4.

Exhibition gallery - for pictures taken to the theme at any time, with any camera:

Originals gallery - if you want to show how the original photo looked before you modified it:

If your clock doesn't show GMT, here is the time calculator found by Catman:

I can't wait to see the great shots you'll all come up with. I know a few of you that abstract is right up your alley, for others of us, it will be a lot of fun to think out of our normal box. Have a lot of fun!
