Photo Challenge #1: People


Recommended Posts

Theme Definition: People

 

Use your imagination here as the subject is quite broad. It can be a crowd applauding a recital or theatrical performance, a queue for tickets at the train station or two lovers walking hand in hand into the sunset down the beach. Conversely it could be a couple of people sharing a joke, someone eating lunch or just walking to work.

Singular or many, close up or far away. Members of the family or complete strangers.

 

Word of warning though...dont take pics of kids..unless you know them!

 

No Nudes

Digital manipulations

All entries should limit the use of digital manipulations to only file conversion, level, curve and sharpening. Adding elements to the original image that were not there are NOT allowed.

 

Voting & Comments

During the "open period", please do NOT enter the comments in the thread, this way we will have all the entries together without interruption and it's easy to view. Comments are welcomed during the voting period.

VOTING will follow after the end of Challenge, for one week only. Registering multiple user accounts to vote is not allowed.

 

Chief Judge

The winner of current Bi-weekly Challenge will serve as the Judge for the challenge after the next, for example, the winner of Challenge #1 will be the Judge for Challenge #3.

END OF CHALLENGE RULES

All of the above is proven to stop abuse, unfortunately even when NO prizes are offered, some will still try pull the wool over peoples eyes and win for winnings sake

I'm sorry Steve but I don't get it, I thought the topic was people?

 

How many people are in those last two shots?

 

Would they have invisible friends? ;)

 

Oh and the chap in the high vis jacket, is he burying some waste there? :D :D

Well I dont see any aliens, so my count is two people and a dog..the interpretation into a photograph is yours and yours alone making the challenge easier. Well I thought it would be easy to interpret.. Unless you live on the top of mountain somewhere all on your own, this is easy pesey.
