January 2013 Submissions

Postby Bjorn van Sinttruije » Wed Jan 02, 2013 9:35 am

Hi everyone! Welcome to January's Assignment!

The theme for this month is "The morning after", as suggested by robbon44 who won the November 2012
competition. Be sure to read the whole post for the rules.

In Rob's own words:
    "I was thinking about the theme and came up with something still along the lines of being seasonal.

    This month I would like to see shots themed around "the morning after.."

    Open to interpretation. No restriction on processing so let the creative juices flow...

    Cheers and happy new year!"



The rules!

1: You can only submit one image and it MUST be taken during January 2013. Photos taken earlier will be disqualified!

2: All images submitted must be no more than 1024 pixels on their longest side, although you can include a link to a
full resolution version if you like. Flickr users must link back to the original version to comply with its latest rules.

As always, please exercise good judgement on what is suitable for the forum. Keep it clean and family-friendly or it'll
be removed. See the Forum Rules for guides.

Please include a sentence or two with your photo describing what you were trying to achieve and if there were any
particular challenges in doing so like, for example, any special exposure or lighting setup.

We're all enthusiasts here, so it's also great to see what equipment you used and the settings too. So please also
include the following:

Camera Model:
Lens and focal length:
Aperture:
Shutter Speed:
Sensitivity:
Post processing:


Submissions will close at midnight GMT on 31st January 2013. The final poll will follow.

Please remember this thread is for submissions only. If you'd like to comment on any of the submissions or ask any
questions, please do so in the January 2013 Comments and Questions thread!

Thanks and good luck!

From the back door this morning. I posted a pic from last night in "photo of the day" in the Off Topic section. To make things easier I'll also post in the comments for this month's "On Assignment."

So many good winter entries, I thought of a surfing shot as this is what happens after the festive season and most take their 4 weeks annual holiday having a month long party especially with Australia Day being in January. Although washed out with the weather this year, it did not stop the partying. Now the sun shines again.

Waited for almost the whole of January to post this photo from Jan 1st. New Year's Day always involves a visit to the grandparents, and this time I brought my Leica to take some snaps of them. The picture below shows my grandmother, who suffers from dementia. I processed a black and white version too, which I prefer for most of my work, but the color was too important in this picture.
