    HEXUS Photo Challenge: Portraits

    Righty ho, a month has gone by and we're well into 2006, its been a bit quiet so its time to stir things up a little...so lets crack on with another photo challenge for you guys and gals to have the chance to show off to hexus members your talents!
    the theme for this round will be

    "Portraits"

    'a portrait of what?' you say...well, Anything. People or pets, animals at the zoo or in the wild, the opportunities are boundless!
    Usual rules apply; its about your talent as a photographer so editing is limited to slight sharpening (as per-usual from a dSLR RAW file for example), any massively photoshopped images will be discarded. for the purposes of this challenge BLACK AND WHITES ARE OK, you may submit either colour or black and white.

    You take as many pictures as you want from now until Sunday 12th February - thats a whole week and two weekends either side!! Then you pick just ONE to submit, multiple submissions will not be accepted.
    Re-size your image to NO LARGER THAN 800x600pixels and 200K in size.
    Upload you image to a file-server and send the LINK only to the email address below, if you send your actual picture it may not be included, it is your responsibility to upload it yourself
    [a list of free image editing software and free image webspace providers can be found in the sticky in the Creative section].

    Entries in by 13th February

    hexus.creativephotos "at" gmail "dot" com

    Please state your Hexus User name when submitting your image

    A thread will be started at 7.30pm Monday 13th February and Voting will commence for 5 days, the time voting ends will be made known. Images submitted late may not get in!

    so get out there, get in people's faces and make it interesting

    Time for a think then. Since I have lots of 'between job' time at the moment!
    Not around too often!

    I just need someone to actually take a damn photo of. I won't actually see anyone till the 13th, unless you count work...

    At this rate it's going to have to be self portraiture!

    I won't be posting a picture this month as I have not had time to shot anything with my new Nikon D50. Expect to see some of my work for the next comp though.
