#345 Pictures of the Wind
Posted By: ffking, 03-17-2016, 11:45 AM

OK - so I've given this no prior thought, having no expectation of even being in the top 3 - and I've no idea what's been done recently, so please accept my apologies if this repeats something, but I'll call the theme Pictures of the Wind - images showing the effect of the wind on things, either natural or man-made - long-term or temporary -interpret as you wish - and have fun!


The competition ends 11.00pm Thursday 24th Mar 2016(UK Time) (hope it's OK to change the day as I started late - the previous one wasthe first one I've entered







Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Everyone is eligible to send in their best interpretation of the given theme, as long as the photo is taken with a Pentax/Samsung camera. Themes can be subject-oriented or technique-oriented.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax (or Samsung DSLR) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Capturing a sense of the wind is something I've tried often, though most of the time I've not been very satisfied with the results. But despite its shortcomings, I do have an irrational affection for this photo of a...

The shape of this tree is due to prevailing winds. Makes for an interesting shape to compliment something like the moon!

"I'm outta here"

It was a day at Salisbury Beach in Ma. when all of a sudden it got dark-the temperature dropped - the wind picked up and this offshore sight was moving towards the beach with sirens going off for people to leave the beach.It was intense.--charliezap.

At least one of us (who, moi?) has already done so! Great shots in this contest. I don't envy your job of judging, Ffking.

I think judging is only bad in reality when you don't like any of the entries - I'm more than happy to choose between high quality shots - it's only about choosing MY winner, after all
