Point and Shoot Competition #144 -- Figurative Symmetry
Posted By Jacquot
Replies: 18
Views: 884
I took the title from a thread I love at the Rangefinder Forum. I'll describe it in my own words though. The idea is that a sense of symmetry should be in the photograph. It could be fairly literal with an asymmetrical element, or more askew with symmetry felt in the composition. It is meant to be creative and free, fun definitely, and can be of anything.

Rules are similar to last month:

Contest Rules:

Always have fun!

Cameras:
ALL CAMERA BRANDS ARE ALLOWED.
Camera should be compact, and let's say fit in a pocket of some garment you own or have owned at some time, and some pockets are bigger than others! I'm not getting out a tape measure...
Digital cameras with sensors smaller than or equal to 1" are allowed. However, for interchangeable lens cameras, no "adopted" lenses are allowed.
All non-interchangeable lens cameras regardless of the sensor size and medium (digital or film) are allowed.
Interchangeable lens cameras with sensors larger than 1" are not allowed regardless of the size.
Mobile phones, tablets and any 110 film cameras are allowed regardless of the size.
Entries will close on March 31, 2020 midnight EDT.
Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels.
List camera brand and model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.
No restrictions on when the entries were taken.
Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges the next competition.
Enter up to three images, however you may change your entries as many times as you like up to the contest closing date/time.

Most of all, have a good time with it! I'll post a few examples that are pretty loose.

The winner is Cipher for the striking photograph of the Black Pearl Hotel in Iceland. I love the soft but bold light and the hard edged buildings.

Honorable Mentions go to aaacb for the photograph of the stairway and to Titia for the amazing building in the park in Mechelen.

Thanks to all who entered, I really liked all the photographs. On to March!

Great image Colton! Amazing color and composition. I love the phantom figure in the tiles, it fits perfectly. Seeing some interior construction tools is a great plus for me--and you, I know. Love this.

I'm partial to the B&W, too, although the yellow flowers are really interesting. The geometries are stronger in the B&W image. The KP with the 20-40 is pretty light and compact. That has been my go to combo on a cross-shoulder strap.

As an architect, I thought I'd make that subject--loosely--the theme for the month. Something in what you post should reflect an architectural context, which can include a lot.

Rules:

1. Always have fun!

2. Cameras:

No cameras with sensors larger than 1" (some exceptions below).
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use.
No interchangeable lens cameras (some exceptions below).
No 35mm (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1kg.

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above):
Mobile phones, old and new, iPods, tablets, toy cameras.
Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital cameras (Fuji X100 and GR OK).
Pentax Q, Nikon 1, interchangeable or fixed-lens 110 film.

ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

3. Entries will close March 31, 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.

I'm really looking forward to what you all will come up with.

Some samples to get you going ...
