Weekly challenge # 641 - Headshots with something extra
Posted By: Vaskebjorn, 02-03-2024, 06:04 AM

Thank you to Kerrowdown for selecting my submission as this weeks winner, I sure as heck didn’t expect that given the subject.
I could change the title thanks to a tip from UncleVanya, I still blame the brain fog though (or I might just be getting old or most likely both).

So for this week’s challenge, I'm widening the previous weeks challenge to Headshots with something extra, this can be any kind of headshot being animal or human but there has to be an extra element to it. This can be anything like an exotic hairdo or a magnificent hat or even e very startled look. Lots of options, so I am expecting lots of entries. That being said, I do expect other photos than last weeks, so all entries of last week will not qualify as I don’t want to make your life to easy obviously.

I will add some of my headshots as an example, one being the Crane of last weeks challenge that has the headdress and startled look as en extra. The other one is a juggler with a certain look although I would like that one a bit more tighter around the upper part of the body. But don’t worry to much, as long as it can qualifies a headshot in some way I will allow it, so go wild ……

The rules which are always the same, so for the unfamiliar...

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.

Already a lot of really great photos in this challenge but obviously there is time for more. And if anyone is wondering, all photos so far do qualify.
