Official Jemsite Photography Contest

Welcome to the Official Jemsite Photography Contest!

We are now accepting pictures of PEOPLE ONLY.
FOR A TOTAL OF SEVEN PICTURES, WE ONLY HAVE ROOM FOR ONE MORE ENTRY!!!!
In order to submit a photo, you need to include the following information:

1. "Title of Picture"
2. First name, Last initial.
3. Approximate date taken.
4. Short story explaining anything about the photography, why you took the picture, etc.


Here is a link to the slideshow of pictures we have so far, so that you know what will be coming when we have the poll: http://s107.photobucket.com/albums/m...rue&interval=3
These are the only VALID entries we have received so far, and they will be used. THIS is what we are looking for!

"Joy of a Whistle"
By Glen C.
October 9, 2004.
"My older daughter Jenna at a picnic/park in Montclair NJ."


"Guitarist Gone Crazy."
By Katrina L.
September 3, 2006.
"Brandon paused in the middle of a gut-busting solo to let out a war cry."


"On Your Way"
By Darrell L. June of 2006.
"This photo was from a series of photos I did of my daughters graduation from pre-school. That is her diploma in her hand."


"The Fire-Twirler"
By Ernie T.
August 10, 2006.
"Saw this fire-arts performer on the main bridge in Prague while on vacation last month in Europe. The long exposure time (due to the dark) captured several revolutions of the fire balls."


"Hiding"
By Phil.
August 2006.
"Took this in Point Pleasant Park in August."

The amount of interest in the contest will determine the final amount of photos used. All contestants to submit photos of PEOPLE, IN THIS THREAD will be the contestants. Once we have all of the pictures, a poll will be created using these photos, and Jemsite members will have exactly ONE WEEK to vote on which picture is their favorite. Whichever photo is chosen is the winning photo. The "prize" you will receive if you are picked as the winner will be ULTIMATE BRAGGING RIGHTS as a Jemsite member, and the pride in knowing that other members are interesting in your photography!

ALL SUBMITTED PHOTOS MUST BE THE ORIGINAL WORK OF THE ARTIST!!!

After the first series of photos has been voted on and a winner has been chosen, the NEXT topic of photos will be introduced.

EACH JEMSITE MEMBER IS ONLY ALLOWED ONE ENTRY PER CATEGORY!

USE COMMON SENSE WHEN IT COMES TO PHOTOSHOP. YOU ARE ALLOWED TO CHANGE THE PICTURE FROM ITS ORIGINAL COLORS TO SEPIA TONE OR BLACK AND WHITE; HOWEVER, OTHER MAJOR CHANGES WILL NOT BE PERMITTED!

Keep this clean and fun!
I look forward to seeing all of the creativity!!!
And remember, WE ARE ONLY ACCEPTING PICTURES OF PEOPLE right now!

WE DO NOT WANT "MYSPACE" STYLE PICTURES!! We want ART, like the pictures above show!!

Hey Jim! I'll be REALLY looking forward to your nature pictures.. What I've seen from Jems in Paradise was ABSOLUTELY beautiful!! I wish I had a forest like that!

Anyways, if guys don't keep this clean, Glen will snap 'em into shape. He's in with me on this one. This is a Katrina/Jemsite thread....

Re: Official Jemsite Photography Contest

im in..

Photography and photoshop are almost hand in hand.. Touching up a photo is one thing though.. Making it something entirely different is another..

But I say allow it

Re: Official Jemsite Photography Contest

No "Photoshopped" pictures will be allowed, due to the fact that they aren't 100% GENUINE. I'm looking for raw, unadulterated art here, not something that is "edited" and "fixed". Thank you!

Re: Official Jemsite Photography Contest

problem is people will Photoshop anyways

I know for a fact I could photoshop something and you would never know.. So how are you planning on governing this?

What if someone adjusted there contrast or hue?

Whos going to host these gigantic 8megapixel pictures since we cant open them in photoshop to resize ok ill stop..

How about you allow it but only to adjust the integrity of the picture not to add to it.. ie, making a background grey and a flower color, etc

Re: Official Jemsite Photography Contest

Okay...I'll give this a shot. I'd also like to offer some advice that may help to get this thing rolling. I request a rule change. First name is okay. Last name is uncool! Drop the last name rule.......okay

Here goes: PEOPLE Category

First name: Jim (what a surprise )
Last name: No one's business
Title: LUCKY GIRL
Location: Paradise (aka - my back yard)
Date: Spring of this year (notice the Lilacs blooming)
What was going through my head: You drop it...you DIE
