343rd Show & Tell Competition: Taoist Simplicity

Post Tue Dec 02, 2014 1:45 am


This week's theme will be "Taoist Simplicity;" I am looking for compositions that have a kind of Taoist or Zen-like quality, with just one or 2 elements, and yet manage to grab the viewer's interest. In the Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu wrote:

"See simplicity in the complicated.
Achieve greatness in little things.

In the universe, the difficult things are done as if they are easy.
In the universe, great acts are made up of small deeds.
The sage does not attempt anything very big,
And thus achieves greatness."

Some examples of what I mean from my own shots might include:







Submissions will be closed on Tuesday the 9th of December 2014 at 01:45:00 UTC

Posting Photos for a Contest
1. Photos must be hosted on pbase.com
2. Maximum of 3 photos per contest.
3. Photos must be embedded in your post. See the following link for how to do this viewtopic.php?t=18022
4. Post only medium versions of your picture using the PB-Image button
5. The host is not eligible for their own contest.
6. Any picture you've taken is eligible, regardless of date taken and camera, as long as it hasn't already won another contest.
7. You can do all the post processing you want.

Winning and Running a Contest
1. If you enter the Show and Tell Contest, please note the closing date and be sure to check back to see if you won.
2. If you win the Show and Tell Contest and cannot run the next one, please notify the person running the contest immediately, so they can notify the second place winner.
3. If you decide to run the next contest, please post the new contest within 24 hours.
4. When the contest ends, please post the winners within 24-48 hours. (If you keep an eye on entries during the week, you will have a good idea of your favorites by the time the contest ends, and be able to more quickly post your winners.)
5. If you know you will not be able to post a contest, judge it, and post winners, within these timeframes, please do not start one. Instead, notify the person running the contest, so they can pass it on to the second place winner.
6. Pick first, second, and third place winners. You may include up to 5 honorable mentions.
7. Include these rules in the body of your contest.
