Curves: Weekly Photography Challenge

This week – as a follow up to our article Composing with Curves – your challenge is to take and share an image on the theme of ‘Curves’.

Atlanterhavsveien - "The Atlantic Road"

Read Composing with Curves, choose one of the types of curves mentioned (‘C Curves’, ‘Arches’, ‘S Curves’, ‘Circles’ or ‘Implied Curves’) and go out and try to capture some of them.

Arched people

Once you’ve taken your ‘Curves’ Photos – choose your best 1-2, upload them to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to them even better – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSCURVES to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Beijing Opera House ("The Egg") - ?????

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks Headshots challenge – there were some great shots submitted.

    Darren,
    Out of 60 submissions for this challenge, only 'anand rdhakrishan' posted his/her submission on this site. It is lovely. Thank you for displaying your photograph.
    I joined this site because I could view at a variety of photographs on various topics in the submissions. Since most people these days are posting their photographs on their photo sharing sites instead of on your site, they are missing a great opportunity to have their work displayed. I DON'T BOTHER TO GO TO THEIR SITES TO SEE THEIR PICTURES AND I DOUBT MANY OTHERS TAKE THE TIME TO DO SO EITHER. I will not spend my time going in and out of this site when the photographer does not respect his/her photography or the viewers of this site enough to take the time to display their photography here. The photographer should submit the challenge photograph here and then include a link to their site if the viewer is interested in seeing more of their work.

    Hi guys,
    here is my selection photos, curves of nature and artificial origin, just click to enlarge
    http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.569501023095033.1073741825.100001054223450&type=1&l=441bd632b4
    Nature and surrounding life are manifold, man-made facilities are often of regular geometric shape, it was curious to look out at photos from different angles, and finding curves there was also an amusing task.

    I'd hoped to catch Canberra's newest hot-air balloon this morning - the Skywhale - but missed out. Maybe I'll be able to add another submission tomorrow ... in the meantime, a couple of paperweights that contain some interesting curves.
