Point and Shoot Competition #134 - Raw Food

April’s theme: RAW FOOD

Things you can eat, BEFORE they are cooked. Grain in a field, macros of veggies, anything that can be eaten, BEFORE it is cooked or processed (i.e., no restaurant dishes). Here are some examples (click through for EXIF data):











Rules:

1. Always 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 (some exceptions below).
No (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1kg.

Cameras permitted:
Mobile phones, tablets, small sensor toy cameras.
Pentax Q, Nikon 1, any 110 film.

Note: for this contest no aps-c or ff fixed lens, let's see what the small sensor guys can do.


ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

3. Entries will close April 30, 2019 midnight EDT.

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

5. List camera brand and model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

6. No restrictions on when the entries were taken.

7. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges the next competition.

8. Enter up to three images, however you may change your entries as many times as you like up to the contest closing date/time.

GOOD LUCK!

I put that pig head in to stir things up. If its being offered as food its ok by me.


Good imagination Titia, those spuds are definitely past their use-by date.
