Photography Contest!!!!!

Photography Contest!!!!!

So, we haven't had one of these in a while, but They're really fun and I miss them. So, I'm bringing this back! Yay! So, this works just like the drawing contest, there's a judge, me, for the first round, who picks a theme and a set date for the photos to be due. Then once the entries are in, they judge, and whoever wins is the next judge!

The rules are:

1. Stick to the theme, please!

2. No pictures of people.

3. Nothing inappropriate.

4. Be kind to others about their photos.

Let me know if I missed any!

 

The first topic/theme will be.......color! The due date will be March 30.

I'm excited to see your photos!

For this one I'm thinking of I have to edit the colors and stuff a bit. Is that ok? If not I have a backup photo.

I took this picture at the Grand Prismatic Springs in Yellowstone National Park when I visisted this summer. It's that color because of heat-sensitive bacteria that live in the water.

Okay, so I'm juding early, just because I want to!

Honorable mentions: Cello and DoodleGirl!!! I'd like you to know that I did not think your photos were bad.I wanted to put everyone in first! I loved them all, and this was super difficult to judge! But I loved your pieces! 

Cello:This was so cool! The greenery at the top was my favorite part! I liked the way you captured a lot of the scene, but it was a bit blurry and The house in the backround was a bit odd, but overall, I loved this. Great job!

DoodleGirl: I loved the pop of color in the dark sky, and personally, I liked it better udside down. I also liked how the trees almost looked like a silhouette sice they were black. It wasn't uper colorful, but it was really epic and cool.

Third place: Stardust!!!!! I was so close to putting you in second, but I think what got me was....I don't know. Yellowstone isn't a great place to take good pictures(I've been to the park, too!), so it's cool how you managed to snap a good shot, but the floor looks a bit off. I know you can't fix that, so I'm sorry, but it is an amazing photo! I really love the way you can see the smoke, the brightness of the water, and the green landscaping behind! Amazing job!

Second place: ALEX!!!! I loved the pop of the color of the red bird tangled in the brown branches. The blue sky is so cool as well! It's..yeah-it's so good! I loved the way he stood out and, yeah, just, job well done, awesome photo!

First place: HOLLYSHOCK!!!!! I loved the reflection of the water, the silhouette look of the trees and the pretty sunset in the background and the ripples of the water. It just looked so good!! I loved it so much!!

 

This was super hard to judge, and amazing job to all of you. Congrats Hollyschock!!
