One of These Isn’t Like the Others
For this competition we want you to compose great shots where something needs to be different or out of place among the others. A collection of items where you get impact by having one item similar, but totally out of character. Show us good photography skills. Composition is a MUST.
Entry Deadline:Sunday January 23rd, 2011
No you are not going to stand outside your neighbor’s window! You need to find things to shoot through that are NOT photography equipment. Have you ever held your sunglasses up in front of your lens? Shooting through gauze, a knot hole in a fence, a partially open door or even a key hole will show us that you are thinking about filtering without photo filters. Remember to create effects that enhance the subject and show your genius creativity. Remember to send in images that will score well with the Technical, Impact, Composition scoring method.
Entry Deadline:Sunday February 20, 2011
Make something very ordinary look extra-ordinary.
How? By using a UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE OR ANGLE OF VIEW. The name of the image should name the original ordinary item. Look up, look down, look all around and show us something new, unique and special. As always you need to remember the basics of exposure, composition, and everything that makes a good photo.

IT AIN’T WHAT YOU THINK.
Show us something abstract. Try a macro lens or maybe a new camera technique. Think outside the box and show us something that makes us wonder, then let the title tell us what we are looking at.

DRIPS, DROPS, SPLISHES and SPLASHES.
Catch a drip leaving a faucet or impacting a dish. Catch a drip from an icicle or maybe milk splashing in a cup. This may involve setting up a mini-studio in your kitchen. Show us control of your shutter speed by catching the drip and also show us your creative side by making it an interesting drip. Think about reflections in your drips and drops. Don’t like being a drip? OK – you have a second choice. Shoot a subject that is substantially immersed in a liquid. As always, remember to send us images that are properly lit, exposed, composed and have the elements of good photography.

WEATHER or NOT!!
Show us a well composed and properly exposed image that makes us think about the weather. It might be the sky that gives it away or we might see the effects of wind or rain. As always we are looking for well shot images that meet our scoring criteria. Photojournalist approach will work if you remember the basics we use for judging.
