    March 2013 Photo-Challenge: "Blue"

    New Photo-Challenge!

    Here's one for you. The topic is, Blue.

    What creative or interesting ways can you photograph blue? Maybe it's blue objects, maybe it's feeling blue or seeing blue. All up to you.

    To keep it interesting, try to stay away from the more generic things, like blue sky. We'd love to see what exciting and interesting things you guys and gals out there can come up with! Oh, also, please no photo-manipulations (eg. Turning a yellow banana blue...) but regular, old cropping and colour-corrections are fine.



    Our winner has a choice of any of the prizes below. Runner up receives their choice of our selection of ebooks or the coveted SitePoint coffee mug (Sorry we're out of mugs! ).

    1.One month subscription to a SitePoint Learnable course. Learnables are online courses that span the range of web development from getting started with PhotoShop or vector art to Designing or Programming your website. Browse the SitePoint ebook library here.

    2. Your choice of SitePoint's Ebooks. Our latest is JumpStart Sinatra. If you're coding in Ruby, Sinatra will make your codebase sing. Browse and view sample ebooks here.


    So. Get to clicking!

    Edit:

    We're always looking for new ideas for photo challenges. If you have one you'd like to suggest, please post it here!-- Shyflower

    Let's hope others will follow. Can't be that hard to take a picture of something blue?

    Only manipulation here was color correction used in desaturating the skin/white of the eye - the Iris is as it was shot. Hope that isn't too over the top!

    To be sung along to the Platters Hit, "Smoke gets in your eyes"

    __2013-03-09-16.26.36.jpg

    They asked me how I knew
    It was Esso Blue
    I of course replied
    With lower grades one buys
    Smoke gets in your eyes.

    ...for the benefit of those who have never heard the song

    A little over the top, yeah. Still that's a gorgeous, blue eye!

    Fair call... In that case, in the spirit of the competition - here's the unedited (besides scaling down) original Believe it or not, the exactly the same iris as in the edited one above.

    These threads always make me so jealous. I can't take a photo to save myself.

    ^ Makes you wonder when that situation would come up. Maybe if you're getting mugged at gunpoint, "Take my photo or I'll blast you!"

    Or you're rock-climbing, "Oh no, the rope's breaking! Quick! Take a picture!"
