#376 - Center Composition
Posted By: atupdate, 01-05-2017, 10:35 AM

I decided to use a topic I hosted for the Weekly Challenge from 2012. If your entry is a frontal view of a person or animal, I consider the location of the eyes/face to judge if the image has a center composition.

The Challenge will close on Thursday, January 12, midnight, your time zone.

The 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 Ricoh 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, then the winner will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Here are a few examples from my files:

Over the years I have taken several similar shots and to their credit I haven't been nipped once. They are like surgeons--you don't feel a thing.--charliezap

Though I have many pictures that fit the theme, and though I've tried this pic in a previous challenge, I love it and cannot resist.

Hardly lame. I think it's quite pretty.
