Point & Shoot Contest #4

Welcome to the PentaxForums POINT & SHOOT PHOTO CONTEST #4

Given that I'm still digging out from 50 cm of snow this weekend. How about the theme, "Predominantly Green".


1. Any non SLR camera can be used. ANY BRAND. Film or digital;
2. No limit as to how long ago the photo was taken;
3. Location photo was taken is desirable but not essential;
4. ENTRIES CLOSE at midnight 2 Apr 08, Ottawa time. ;
5. The maximum allowed photo dimensions are 800x800 pixels;
6. List camera brand and model;
7. Some post-processing is fine;
8. Will award 1st, 2nd, 3rd place;
9. Max limit of 5 photos per member for the contest; and,
10. The winner of the contest will host and judge the next one.

Look forward to seeing "green". I'll start it off one that I posted in another thread.

Hey, that is the point isn't it? ;-) Get ya using that p&s that mostly gathers dust. Or if you are like me, I carry it everywhere, just don't use it often.

I'll give it a shot! Taken with a Fuji F10, the camera I used before being inaugurated into the DSLR Pentax world.

A friendly tree frog at the Toronto Zoo. (July 2006)

In a nightclub in Bristol, UK. It's amazing what you see when you look down. (August 2006)

Up in a mountain pass in the Dingle Peninsula, Kerry, Ireland. Truly an amazing place! (May 2007)

My friend and I silhouetted on the rugby pitch, as we have a serious talk on the balcony. (July 2007)

I tried to keep these as much total green as I could. I may contribute a couple more later.

These are pretty "green". The last week of october we had a 75 degree day and I just had to take the kayak out. These were shot on the upper Hudson River between Corinth and Glens Falls, NY with a Fuji Fine Pix 2650. I bought it in 2002, only 2 megapixels and was my only digital camera until I bought my K10D about a month after these shots.

Green Inside and Out

Here's a little double entendre on 'green'. This is the Casino at Monte Carlo in Monaco (Casio EX-Z55):

These 3 shots were taken with my Canon Powershot S60.

Spring is unusually green along northern California's Lost Coast - near the California-Oregon border.
