  • Fortnightly Salon Competition No. 6

    UPDATE: there is now a prize for the salon winner too!

    UPDATE: And the winner of this salon is...

    Dear All,

    Thanks to Andrew for running the last competition and for picking my picture in the midst of so much great competition. I hope you enjoy this one. The competition opens now and will run till 12.00pm on Sunday the 17th of December. The theme this time is Emotions.

    Good luck to all. I will post the results as soon as possible after the close.

    Here are the rules. Please take a moment to read them prior to shooting or uploading your submissions.

    1) All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at http://dpnow.com/galleries/, they can be put in members own gallery if they wish. The resulting link generated for the photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the Salon thread.
    2) One entry per user ID only please, which must be the personal work of the entrant
    3) Entries should be "in line" within the thread (not as links to an image held somewhere else)
    4) Comments only on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself
    5) After the close the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.
    6) The curator's decision is final.
    7) Winners should be offered first refusal to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.
    8.) If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that "honour" to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place
    9) These rules are to be copied and pasted with a new theme by the new Curator at the top of the new Salon thread with a finish date and time
    10) As with all photos posted on DPNow, copyright remains with the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission


    Best Regards

    Josh

        Bother - didn't realise the other one had finished and have just spent the afternoon (on my old computer with most of my photos on it) looking for 'perspective' shots.

        Back to the drawing board...

            This is a great theme. This time I thought I'd get my entry in early, especially since Andrew's take on the theme loosely reflects my own



            There's a nice story to accompany this shot too. Romantic even...

            The photo is from a series taken of the two models - Gordon and Suzanne - earlier this year at my studio. We were shooting some commissioned stock images for a client of mine and also some portfolio images for the two models, who at the start of the shoot had never met one another. Anyway, I needed some quite intimate "couply" shots and I was amazed at how easily they both found the poses and how comfortable they seemed with one another. A couple of times I raised my eyebrows to Gordon (who I've worked with many times in recent years) in a bid to gauge his impression of Suzanne and I could see he really liked her, and judging by Suzanne's body language, it appeared that the feeling was mutual.

            Finally, the shoot ended and we all set of to our respective homes. A few weeks later I spoke to Gordon about something unrelated and he mentioned that he and Suzanne had been "dating" almost since the shoot. That was over seven months ago............they're still a couple as I write

            Anyway, because of the background story, I look at this particular image with a degree of pride, because the chemistry between these guys was genuine and I captured their first meeting.

            Thanks for reading my intro

              I'd keep an eye on that fella, I photographed him with another woman and from where I was standing they seemed to be having a pretty good time

                  She seemed to be rather unimpressed, even slighty disgusted.

                        Or simply squinting in bright light? But it does seem a nasty pong has hit the vicinity!

                            Anticipation:


                            Here's my first time entry -- not a technical masterpiece, but definitely in the theme. Even 6-years-old players compete with intensity. This shot could change leaders, even though scores are not kept (but everyone keeps track anyway). My grand-daughter is #2.
