Weekly Challenge #346 - Juxtaposition
Posted By: rod_grant, 03-27-2016, 12:56 AM

This week's challenge is Juxtaposition
(the fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect)

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.

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.

The challenge will end at 6pm Australian Eastern Standard Time, next Sunday 3 April.
Have fun.

At the bus stop-what is she thinking?

One of my favorite shots from our Provincetown Cape Cod vacation.I don't know if the picture itself conveys the juxtaposition theme or maybe more with the picture on the back of the magazine that she is holding.--charliezap

Pentax LX, 31mm FA Limited, Ultrafine Red Dragon, Old Gray Cemetery, Knoxville, TN

This image juxtaposes the weight of a single grave, that with the in-focus statue, against all the other graves in the cemetery. It aims to ask how can we calculate mourning; how can we weigh the importance of one life versus those of many others.

To my surprise, I found out that I have quite a lot of shots featuring this theme. Hard to decide but I'll go with this one. Mountain shelter and tent at sunset on Ascutit Peak.
