    Day 3: The Great Photography Competition

    Completed your first two missions successfully?

    You have 24 hours from now to plan your third mission.
    In 24 hours time, submission opens. In 48 hours time, submission closes and the next mission will be announced.

    Your third mission is to take a photo of ONE OF THE FOLLOWING:

    A statue or bust OR
    Graffiti

    Images must be uploaded to this thread as attachments.

    Images should be either JPG or PNG and should measure between 900 - 2000 px length for the longer side of the photograph. DPI doesn't matter.


    The Rules:

    ALL WORK MUST BE YOUR OWN!

    Photos must be shot between the time a topic is posted and the time of judging. Photos from five years ago are not allowed.

    Photos must be submitted before midnight of the day.

    Entrants may take part as many times as they like, but an entrant may only win once.

    No goofy Photoshop effects or overdone photo-manipulation; Entrants are allowed to correct colour, contrast, and make minor tweaks such as removing litter or distracting objects from a photo, but no surreal colours or crazy filters.

    Thanks, I particularly love the way everything including the footpath(sidewalk) right up the chimney stacks are covered with graffiti ... when I saw the competition I grabbed my camera and went to look for a small piece of graffiti, instead I discovered an entire area almost a block near where I am working that is completely covered with graffiti ... I will have to upload the rest of the photos somewhere later on

    Is it strictly statues/graffiti or there can be people in the picture?

    HAWK, I guess you prepared that post some days ago:

    Jul 5, 2010, 02:30

    I'm not participating in the contest, but I can immagine people getting confused. 48 hours after that post date have already passed. So the contest would be closed already... with only two entries?

    There can be whatever you want in the picture, but the main idea of the picture must clearly be graffiti or statues.

    Trying to fill the unforgiving minute
    with sixty seconds' worth of distance run.

    I did. I'll copy and paste next time

    I have put the times up in several places now, but I take your point.

    For the record, there are still just under 36 hours left to submit for day 3.

    Hi guys,
    This is the Soldiers Monument in Tilton NH.
    It says "Erected by the Citizens of Tilton and Northfield. Dedicated May 30 1889"

    They cleaned the copper up last year, and yes it is that orange...Used to be a nice green.
    Anyway, not many statues around here...Been kinda quiet the last 100 years I guess.

    Here is a statue we have in our backyard.

    The dogs were with me when I went out to take some photos and, although I fear "The Mighty and Powerful Judges" may disqualify it because the topic (e.g. the statue) is not the main focus of the picture, I believe it is an outstanding photograph.

    I am very pleased with the composition, the contrast between the black dog and the [lighter] gray statue, and the "giggle" factor evoked by the dog's expression.

    First post to this contest, I just saw it yesterday.

    Barcelona, this is one of the concrete blocks at the breakwater, the image made me ask a friend of mine to disguise and pose there for the picture.

    This is my post, but I will also be posting another just because I just really liked the Heron.
    This is a tree stump a friend carved into a mushroom, it sits just off the side of the road to his house. Kind of Fern Gully like.

    I just really liked the Heron also. It's sculpted from re-bar and then painted.

    On second thought! Does a sculpture satisfy the requirements for a statue.
    While a mushroom may not, a Heron is a living animal/being. ???

    This is a statue on top of a tall round column. I guess about 30 feet tall. An angel of victory. A fleeting thought I had while looking up: do not look under the skirts -- and then I just laughed.

    Hi all, also had a statue but it was my third choice.
    Think I got too focused on the picture and lost track of the subject.

    Had to go out on my bike for this one. Had a bit of a panic when I got to the location, as I turned my camera on to discover I'd left my memory card in my card reader from the previous photo! Was about to resort to using my iPhone, when I found a spare on in my bag! Phew!!

    Couldn't look through the viewfinder for this shot as I was holding it so low over water, so had to take about 20 shots until I got the one I was after! I'm quite pleased with the result.
