Weekly Challenge #392 Crash
Posted By: mattb123, 06-29-2017, 10:38 PM

Thanks again for the recognition and hosting the previous contest, J8B!

I thought a fun theme might be crash. You can interpret it a few ways. I often see crashes in a literal sense at events I shoot but I always enjoy a creative interpretation too. Let's see what you can come up with!

Rules for all the Weekly Challenges: Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week. This challenge is Pentax/Ricoh/Samsung cameras only.

Everyone is eligible to send in their best interpretation of the given theme, as long as the photo is taken with a Pentax/Ricoh/Samsung camera. Themes can be subject-oriented or technique-oriented. The host/judge will post winners' names in a separate thread, and will send a private message (PM) the winner to pass the baton on. The winner will then host the next Challenge, and post a new thread with a subject or theme of his/her choosing.

Contest ends next Thursday the 6th.

A few examples. Good luck!





This one is me crashing into my own camera.


Another interpretation

I had a hard time choosing between 2 photos and i decided it had to be this one.
It are the remains of a boat that “crashed” one time to many on the rocks in the harbour.

Now THIS is an original theme, Matt, and already there are good interpretations. I had to scratch my head on what to put up for this contest. Not much in the archives, but found this one from an auto graveyard...

OUCH!

Struggled to find something suitable for this week's theme. A bit of a stretch here, but...

(Ready to) Crash...
