November 2013 Assignment - Submissions

Postby Bjorn van Sinttruije » Fri Nov 01, 2013 8:49 am

Hi folks, and welcome to November's assignment. The theme for this month is "Depth of field as a compositional tool". (i.e. "differential focus", seeexample/explanation here. Any subject is possible, but you'll have to use depth of field creatively.)
In case 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.

Prize
The winner will receive a free copy of our Wildlife Photography eBook, a downloadable PDF worth $9.97 which you can read on computers, laptops, tablets,
iPads, phones, or anything which can open a standard PDF file! You'll find more details here.

Rules
1. You can only submit one picture, and it should be no longer than 1024 pixels on it's longest side.
2. The picture must be taken anytime in the last six months.
3. Exercise good judgement about what is appropriate on our forum (see our Forum Rules for more information).
4. Please include a sentence or two describing your picture or the process of taking it, and share some technical info such as the camera, lens, settings and processing.
5. If you have any questions, comments or pictures older than six months, please post them in the Comments and Questions thread.
6. Submissions will close at midnight GMT on November 30th 2013, after which you can vote for your favorite entry. Good luck!

Taken at a track event I actually took part in, after finishing my race, I went for my bag, sat down at the finish line and tried snapping some shots of other competitors for the assignment, trying to convey the race in a shot. I think this is the one that turned out best. The guy in the background is his competitor.

Mosses and Lichens grow rather well up here in our clean but rather damp climate!
