Point & Shoot Competition #59

Pentax Point & Shoot Competition #59 - Doorways

The doorway to the Kitchen, or a doorway to another dimension, I don't care. Straight up or thoroughly washed & processed using your favorite software, it doesn't matter. Artsy images, Emotional images, Thought Provoking images, Metaphoric images, whatever gets your attention. I encourage you to use your imagination.

The usual rules apply

The Rules

1. HAVE FUN!
2. Cameras:
No cameras with sensors larger than 1"
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use
No interchangeable lens cameras
No 35mm (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1 kg

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above)
Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital rangefinder and viewfinder cameras
Interchangeable or Fixed-lens 110 film SLRs and Pentax Q
TLRs, 6x9, 6x7, 6x6 and 6x4.5 Medium Format "Folding", "Box", or "Holga-style" scale focus cameras (subject to 1 kg weight limitation)

3. Entries will close on Oct. 30, 2012.

4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels

5. Max of 3 image entries per person, from archives or fresh. Entries may be withdrawn or changed

6. Listing camera brand & model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

7. Post processing is fine.

8. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date, and judge’s next competition

9. HAVE FUN!

I’ll start us off with a few “straight up” "straight forward" shots taken at the old fort in Puerto Rico recently using the Optio S.

Wow Mike! The contest judge is not supposed to submit a winning entry when setting the contest! Your second pic is simply stunning.

Heh - I have some shots of those very same doorways in PR but mine were taken with the K100D I was lugging around the island! :-)

Yea Jim... that's one of the nice things about the little Optio S... you actually have to stop and remember just which pocket you put it in before you can take it out and use it. Sure, it's only 3 MP, but it's still more than adequate in many cases.

Beautiful shots, Mike, and a great theme. Now to think about doorways...

Hello everybody!

I think I have something... Yes, that's a usual sentence.


Bart, I love this view of the Grande Arche. Too bad they closed the roof section.

Next two entries.


On a cemetery called Campo Santo near Ghent, Belgium.





Just noticed on a street in Bruges, Belgium.






Both with Panasonic FX500 and processed a bit more adventurously than I'm used to.

Wow! These are all great images so far! I can see that this is going to be a difficult one to judge already.

I confess I have a couple of suitable scripts within Photoshop. A matter of layers and adjustment curves.
I like the quaint look of the garage. I could imagine it's in the part of the city between the canal and the zentrum, around Katelijnestraat - pure supposition.
