CONTEST IS CLOSED --- VOTING THREAD WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON

Photography Contest #3
Contest Theme: Black and White

On behalf everyone contributing to the successful Photography Thread it is my pleasure to organize and introduce the third Photography Contest on Ultimate-Guitar!


Please read the following completely to avoid being disqualified:

So here's how its going to work: I'll introduce the theme of this contest, and for two weeks from the exact time of this post (GMT times will be used for universality) UGers will be able to submit their entries to this thread. Only one submission is allowed per user. Anyone who submits more than 1 submission will be disqualified. If you wish you can change your submission--but only keep the new one. Post your submissions in this thread. When it has been exactly one week since the posting of this thread, submissions will no longer be accepted.

However, at this time voting will be open. Anyone on UG can vote for one UG user who submitted an entry. If you participate in this contest, you cannot vote for yourself. Your vote will be thrown out if this happens. Voting will be closed after 24 hours, and the winner will be tallied and featured in this first post.

Please also note that plagiarism is not acceptable!

Now that that's out of the way... lets begin shall we?


* * *
Contest Theme: Black and White
-- Sepia and any other monochrome form will be accepted, just make sure its only white and whatever color you chose.

Sumbissions Valid Until: FEBRUARY 25, 2007 @ 08:16 PM GMT



Also, please note that entries must have be taken after the contest opening. EXIF data may be used to confirm this if there is a doubt. You cannot post anything that was already posted in a previous contest.

A note from Kensai:
If you've got photoshop and you use the "save for web/devices" instead of "save as" your exif info will be lost. Flatten the image (layers / flatten) then use "save as" to save the pic as a .jpg

can it be photoshopped at all? but still black and white?

like what if the contrast was ereally high but still just black and white?
#3
FIRST! edit: damnit, second

I'd also like to add that you have to take new pictures for the contest. This is to make things more fair.

Darkroom techniques will be allowed, as well as some light clonesampling. Darkroom technique includes: levels, curves, contrast

Oh and for those of you who haven't got photoshop, I recommend gimp which bascially is like photoshop, only free: www.gimp.org

Oh and here's a gallery to inspire everyone: http://pixydream.deviantart.com/gallery/

Does it have to be completely b&w or can it be photoshopped to include both?


Oh you mean B&W and colour in the same pic? Sorry, no, but it can be black&white and another, single[/colour]. Like sepia or another colour of your choice

@Pookoo: Damn, that was fast is that really a new pic?
I love the concept behind it (which I hope there is) and the pic overall. Nice one!

OH SNAP! new pic?
hahaha damn, Alright, I've gotta get something else then, count me in but momentarily out, I haven't had many photo opp's lately.

Should I take it down for now or just leave it till?

(If it counts, I've never used it for anything ever before, I haven't even shown anyone, and it's not years and years old or anything.)

Is it ok if I took my picture last weekend? It's only a week old. I agree that the new pic rule is kind of annoying, I doubt anyone could come up with something great in a week, and it wouldn't truly show the skill of the photographer, for example it could be a busy week for a great photographer and he wouldn't have much time therefore his pic wouldn't be so hot.

I might be in, depends on if i can make anything decent of the pictures i took today.
My camera kinda sucks, though, so the pictures aren't looking very good right now. I'll see what i can do.
#21
To be honest a new pic rule is fine with me, and thats the way with most photogarphy sites.

Thing is he'd need to check the EXIF info to get the true date.

Tis up to the threadstarter, but no worries either way.

I think the rule that is has to be new is lame. But that's just me. You won't get as many entries that way, and this competition will be less interesting because the pictures will be limited to the best we can do in a week, rather than the best we have ever done.


I think you know why it's like that: To give everhody an equally fair chance. We have been thinking of extending the entryperiod, though to maybe 2 weeks, would that be better?

I think it can be more intersting this way too, you really have to be creative to use what you can get during the timeperiod

That's alright pookoo, I hope you take a new, good pic

Would it be unfair to ask my sister to register so that she could enter this competition and then leave the board?


Hm... well, any UG member is allowed to submit an entry and vote. Why your sister, is she a proffessional photographer?

Quote by LittleMan_LittlePenis
I'm in. I'll have my picture uploaded to this soon.

How would you know if it's an old picture or not? I have a picture I put in the photography thread I might use but not if I'm not allowed.


Well, we can always check the exif file, plus if it's a pic you use at your page someone here might've seen it. Overall I tihnk it's pretty low if someone would submit an old pic and call it new

sorry to hear that, man. I took some good pics today before the poll closed and yesterday.

But hey, you can always put it in the photography thread (see my sig). Besides, this is just one contest there'll be others soon

No, but she has some really amazing pictures. She used to suck, but she got extremely better. I just wanted to parade her good photographs around the board. She won't enter though. Here is her deviant art if you're interested.

I've got two pictures I'd enter, but I don't know which to choose. :wtf

They're both on a musical theme, but that's only because they were taken for an art assignment with the topic "holiday". Should I post em in the photography thread or what? I really don't know which one I like more.

Here you go:



Nice and musically themed too. It's my 1960s Thorens TD-150MkII Turntable. Need's a new stylus at the moment, so I'm using some new bush one at the moment instead. I'll get a new stylus tomorrow when I'm in town.

I apologise if this is silly and unrelated, but I honestly thought this said pornography contest (obviously i had to have a look....)

anyway...the 8-ball pic is pretty cool. I like the stuff people can do with good cameras...
because i said so.

Haha, everytime we have a photography contest someone says that

Yeah it's cool, but you don't have to have a good camera to take good pics

@blockyourears: just make sure it's B&W
