    Day 5: The Great Photography Competition

    nd now for your final mission.

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

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

    A group of people in a public place OR
    An elderly person

    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.

    Just a reminder to all of you who've entered consistently on all the days;

    Don't drop the ball now. If you enter everyday you'll be in the running for our big prize of a badass print version of Photography for Web.

    So... go on. Get to it!

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

    A little side note: These 48 hour competitions should have all been featured in the Highlighted Forum Discussions. A lot of people land there and are made aware of things that are going on. It is not too late for this one and the upcoming ones also

    Another awesome afternoon afforded to all here in southwestern Ohio. Sitting around doing nothing but just "being".

    After reading the subject material for #5 on my iPhone, I was struck by two thoughts:

    • One, "hmm, 'a group of people in a public place', where the heck am I going to find that.
    • Second thought was "Sh!t, I'm at the fracking pool for crissakes."


    Connecting the dots, with the camera stashed in the trunk of the car, resulted in "Pool Crowd"

    Today it was the final match at Football (Soccer) World Cup, and there was a photography project on taking pics of the cities during the match (the project is named "The phantom Spain). While waiting for the match to begin, I took this picture near Barcelona Center (always crowded with tourists and elderly)

    It wasn't that easy to find a random group of people to photograph without being noticed. Decided to go to the beach and managed to capture a few people down by the rock pool.

    Instantly thought of tilt shift when I read the crowd challenge for day 5, and here is my submission. Got in and out of Earl's Court station pretty quickly...not sure about the laws on taking pics of underground stations these days!

    That photo of Earl's Court is like I've never seen it before. For the 5 years I lived in London it was constantly under refurbishment! Great photo, pixelfuze.

    Thanks Raffles! It's a lovely station, feels very open even though its manic. The new roof is awesome, lets a lot of light in...great for sneaky photographers

    You will. I have an apology from the official judge for being behind on the judging.
