Incomplete: Weekly Photography Challenge

0Comments

280615098743347191 1398412Sometimes it is what you leave OUT of an image that can really make that image interesting.

So this week our challenge to you is to take and share an image with the them of ‘incomplete’.

Once you’ve taken and selected the ‘Incomplete’ image that you’d like to share – upload it to your favourite photo sharing site or blog and either share a link to it or – embed them in the comments using our embed tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSINCOMPLETE 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.

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

    Was taking a photo of this lil guy when he got camera shy and ended up partially behind a leaf.
    Switched up the setting on my camera to make the colors of the leaves a bit more vivid.

    What was left out was any part of the car in the shot, so it looks like I am underneath the giraffe:)

    My husband took this photo of me after my zombie makeover, and I cropped it to just slow my face and my son's skull (brains!). It's at the top of the post in the header:

    This one was actually supposed to be complete. We were shooting the sunrise and at some point we decided to take some pictures with our silhouettes. After having some fun posing and clicking the remote control, I took a look and realized I had forgotten to zoom back out.

  • bethany ogdon October 28, 2012 09:28 am

    Took this last week and earmarked it for the trash because of quite unacceptable framing (!)... The "incomplete" challenge caused me to reconsider... The badly framed original works much better than any cropped version.
