Actually, I really like it. I say "actually", though, because I can't quite figure out why. :p

Very nice. I think its good.

I'm also pretty skilled with photoshop, so if you need any help, give me a shout. I know some pretty cool filters that would make that pretty sweet.

Oh, and I like the Rome star on the bandana, nice touch Big Grin

How abstract can I get? I'll just throw up a few simple things...

I like the second one. I'm a real sucker for high contrast :p

There are tons of other options too, but its late and I have to work tomorrow morning.

Forgive me for being blunt, but with all do respect thats just a picture of a snowboard.

And also, wouldn't photoshop void this as a 'photography' contest... If they wanted photos to be doctored they would call it a 'photography but not really' contest.

Yeah, but it's in perfect focus (crisp up front, fading to not so much in the back) .. the red board plays well off the green grass .. the way it's laid out cuts diagonally through the frame, creating an interesting use of space .. you can almost feel the difference in texture between the bandana's fabric and the glossy smoothness of the board .. then, of course, there's the juxtaposition of a winter object on what very clearly appears to be a summer day .. all these things lead to making it an interesting photograph.

Is a contest winner? I don't know. It depends on the other pictures entered. Honestly, it probably isn't. Nevertheless, I still think it's the kind of thing you can look at for awhile and continue to be intrigued by it.

On the other hand, if you wanna see "just a picture of a snowboard", swing by eBay and look for someone selling one. You'll see the difference between this one and any of those. Well, I mean, I do. Wink

nah, i had to enter it yesterday.

yes, i realize it wont win, lol.

i've just been entering pictures since i was like 10. [VT got me started] and i've never won anything for them.

but hey, there's people who have like years of [good]experience and like $800 cameras.

and here i am, a broke snowboard instructor with a hand-me-down 2.1 MP digital camera Big Grin and no lesson on how to correctly take good pictures. haha.

point is, i just enter because i can.
