68th Show and Tell competition: STEPS

Post Tue Dec 11, 2007 1:04 pm


This week's theme sounds simple: STEPS. However, I am thinking of steps in the broadest sense of the term. You might put one foot in front of the other, and you made a step. Animal traces in a snow field prove the steps, which some animal had performed in the immediate past. Moving legs, photographed in decisive moments, represent steps. Stairs, leading to anywhere, consist of steps. But there is also a figurative sense to the term. You might make an important decision that puts you a step forward in your life.

I am open to all possible interpretations of the term, particularly - in continuation of Alain's philosophy of photography - if the actual step in the picture will only become apparent in the observer's mind and interpretation.

My criteria of evaluation will regard the following questions:
1. Is the picture on topic?
2. Does it transmit a (possibly hidden) message to the observer?
3. How about the artistic composition?
4. Does the picture represent an appropriate technical photographic execution?

Up to three images can be posted. The originals have to be posted in Pbase galleries. Only posts in medium formate will be accepted with a link to the original image in the gallery (see also Rules below).

The period to post images will end on Tuesday, 18 December, 12.00 am, Greenwich mean time.

Good luck to all of you! Claudia

Rules:
1. Photos must be hosted on pbase.com.
2. Photos must be embedded in your post. See
http://forum.pbase.com/viewtopic.php?t=18022
3. Post only the medium versions of your picture. Larger versions will not be considered.
4. Only enter up to 3 photos per-contest.
5. The host is not eligible for their own contest.
6. Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera
7. You can do all the post processing you want.
8. Have fun.
