Show and Tell Photo Contest #15 - Determination

Post Mon Aug 07, 2006 11:07 pm


"DETERMINATION"

..since the winner of contest #14 is unable to host this competition, it has been handed over to me as 2nd place getter.

Best regards and good luck!

I hope the subject is not too narrow...I had a look & here are the past contests so far:
14 - Portraits
13 - Weather
12 - Emotions
11 - Wood
10 - Work

8 - Bridges
7 - Flora
6 - Landscapes

OK, let me have a think about this. I guess it is too narrow. Would removing the word fierce help? I wanted something a bit open to interpretation.

What I had in mind was someone or something expressing a determined attitude, a desire to get what they want at all costs, eg...an animal "determined" to get it's prey or an athlete "determined" to win...even a caterpillar "determined" to reach the top of the plant.

I'm going to leave this for a few hours, if no-one posts, I guess I will think of something a bit broader.

I dont see any determined attitude from the above pics. Not being offensive, but I am confused.

In the first picture I posted, my son was told to pick a pumpkin, he wanted a massive one, my wife and I didn't really want to get the monster pumpkins he kept pointing out so as a compromise we told him if he could carry it he could have it.... so he struggled with the biggest one he could pick up. He seemed very determined to us.
In the second picture, the snake seemed very determined to swallow the toad, and the toad puffed himself up as large as possible to make himself difficult to swallow as he was determined to stay in this world (he failed).
In the third picture, the female tiger beetle wasn't too enthusiastic but the male held her firmly with his jaws and was determined to have his 'wicked way'. So I see determination in all the pictures I posted, and I can see it in the other posts too. They may not be the best examples, but the topic is quite specific and they are the most relevant of the photos I have on pbase.:lol:

had a look at dict.leo.org (english-german dictionary) and "determination" shows a lot of meanings :-)
