Water Landscapes: Weekly Photography Challenge

0Comments

Last week’s sunset/sunrise landscapes challenge was really popular with some beautiful images being submitted so we’re going to continue the ‘landscape’ theme going (to coincide with the launch of our Living Landscapes eBook) and this week are issuing the challenge of photographing a landscape image with ‘water’ in the scene.

So this week we’d love to see some shots with rivers, lakes, oceans, streams and waterfalls (or anything else you can imagine up).

The first page of our 'photographing water' section of the Living Landscapes eBook.

The first page of our ‘photographing water’ section of the Living Landscapes eBook.

Todd has a section on shooting water in the eBook but whether you’ve read it or not we’d LOVE to see your shot!

Once you’ve taken your ‘Water Landscapes’ photos upload your best ones 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 #DPSWATER 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 Sunrises and Sunsets challenge – there were some great shots submitted.
