Weekly Challenge #115 - "Letters or Numbers"
Posted By: ll_coffee_lP, 10-25-2009, 03:10 PM

Weekly Challenge #115 – Letters or Numbers

The challenge explained:
Time to dig through your archives, or perhaps go shoot with a different perspective. This week we are looking for letters or numbers. Letters or numbers may come in the form of a person/people forming a letter/number, or a naturally occurring shape that resembles a letter/number, maybe it's a letter/number from a sign. Whatever you like... The only caveat is that you must post the letter/number with your image.

Extra Credit:
- Letter/number that was obviously difficult to obtain (i.e. a cloud formation, 152 people stacked on top of each other, a comet flying between two telephone poles forming an "H", etc. - you get the picture).
- A letter/number that is naturally occurring and is the focal point of the image, but you wouldn't necessarily see it unless it was pointed out to you.

Challenge Starts:
Now!

Challenge Ends:
Sunday, Nov.1.09 @ 1159pm EST

Results:
Monday, Nov.2.09 (evening)

The fine print....
1. Post ONE photo (max 1000x1000).
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
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and chose 1 of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus a day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera will do or a Samsung DSLR.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
