Welcome to April's Photo Competition!
And if you haven't joined our community but would like to showcase your work then why not Register now. It's free and we'd love to see what you can do.
The theme for this month is "Juxtaposition", as chosen by Trevor Harris who won our February competition.
Be sure to read the whole post for the rules.
In Trevor's words:
- There are many technical reasons that capture my eye in photos, color, composition, lead linesâ€¦ I suspect the majority of users here tend to the same reasons based on the generally male demographic. But in the interest of stepping outside our comfort zones, I'm going to choose something a bit more artsy for us to lean towards. I'm choosing Juxtaposition for Aprils theme.
Explore this theme in whichever niche of photography way you wish. People, still life, landscapes. I'm not going to list any restrictions on post processing, but as EvanK so eloquently put a few months ago, "please do us all a favour and stay away from any super overdone HDR".
Now, get out there and shoot!
Great choice, Trevor! Something to get us all thinking about how to use our cameras to say something about the world around us.
1: You can only submit one image and it MUST be taken during April 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.
How to post images in the forum.
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 if you are unsure.
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:
Lens and focal length:
Submissions will close at midnight GMT on April 30th 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 April 2013 Comments and Questions thread!

In March, I (Bjorn) offered the winner of the competition a prize. However, the
condition that there had to be at least 20 entries was not met. Thus, the prize
will be available for April's competition, with the same conditions. Grab your
camera, go out (or stay in, depending on your idea), and shoot your submission
So, what is the prize? It's a copy of Joe McNally's "The moment it clicks",
a great book about photography describing the stories behind some of Joe's
images. Goes for over $30 on Amazon, but you can get it for free. I will even
pay for the shipping myself, which is why I will only do this once, shipping
charges can get crazy here in Holland.
Again, there is one condition: there have to be at least 20 entries. If
there aren't, I might consider moving the prize to next month, or not offer
it anymore and keep the book for myself, I'm not sure yet.
So, if you want a chance to win a free photography book, submit an entry to
this month's assignment themed "Juxtaposition". You have until the end of the
month as always. Good luck!
Thanks and good luck!
