  • Angles

    Hi Folks, Right - so, this week, we're looking for ANGLES but first, some new rules!!

    - As our forum continues to grow, we are getting a lot more great entries in the weekly assignments and therefore have decided to make a couple of changes. Not HUGE changes, but just some small ones to help us moderators get through the judging.

    Starting from now
    please keep your commenting to a minimum in the current assignment thread during the active assignment, do not repost someone else's photo [in your quote, if you comment] Please don't be offended if someone deletes the quoted photo from your comment. [it will most likely be me! be gentle] ...Anyways! Enough of that...

    I give you 90' | Man on seat

    EXIF data should still be intact if you wish to participate in the mini contest.

    The image you submit should be taken between the 16th and the 30th of April 2008.

    Your post must include "Assignment:Angles" to show your permission to count it for the contest.

    Next week the assignment will be "Converging Lines"

    Assignment: Angles

    OK in early this week.

    This 1951 Dodge has some great lines and angles in it's old steel body, and chrome. Plus I took the photo on the angle just to highten the effect.

          Are straight lines angles?

          Assignment: Angles

          Obviously, I fell asleep in geometry. I'll understand if this pic doesn't count for the assignment. There is a big stand of huge bamboo at our local zoo, and I snapped a shot of it last week.

                        Took my wife to the wildflower center, and took some wildflower pictures. But this rain spout/gutter caught my attention. An interesting Angle.
