Special Photo Contest: "Shoot the boring in a creative way" - Win a Pentax 21mm lens!

Welcome to a special photo contest in which you can win the SMC Pentax-DA 21mm F3.2 lens as the grand prize! This contest will be very similar to the"wide open spaces" photo contest that recently ended, just with a different theme and prize.


How to Enter

The contest theme is "Shoot the boring/mundane/everyday in a creative way".

Capture a photo matching the theme, with the following requirement:
  • Taken between March 30, 2022 and June 15, 2022
Create a thread in the "Post Your Photos" forum and select the "21mm Photo Contest" prefix. In this thread, attach or embed your photo.

Browse Current Submissions

I have set up a special gallery page where you can browse and comment on submissions.

The boring/mundane/everyday Photo Contest Gallery

Eligibility
  • This photo contest is open to all forum users worldwide. The finalists will be selected by a judge, @ebahle, after which the winner will be voted upon by the forum community.
  • Photos must be embedded or attached in your post. Photos that do not appear in the gallery above will not be considered.
  • Lens will be shipped from the US. Import fees, if any, are the responsibility of the winner. Actual prize is pictured below.
  • Limit 1 entry per household.
  • To participate, create a forum account if you don't already have one

It will be interesting to see what people think like of this time;
I don’t think I have the imagination to compete this time.

I think it might be time for some stick or post shots.

I like things like this as they are a challenge and really work to develop one's seeing ability. I already have a picture in mind that I took 2 weekends ago and a bunch of other shots I want to do.

So... If you shoot the boring/mundane/everyday in a creative way, will it still qualify as being boring and mundane?
Food for thought!

This is a tough one! @Adam Should I sit this one out since I won the other 21mm or let my lack of imagination be my undoing. :P

I thought "I" invented that one. :P Interestingly, that post post got more comments than I usually get...apparently I failed to explain it well enough.
