Welcome to Farktography!

This Weeks Theme: "Focus people, focus"
Thanks to schnee for this week's theme.

Description: Entries to this theme should in sharp focus. Beyond that, anything goes. The first, second, and third place winners of this contest will be presented to the link-submission thingy for a Photoshop contest on May 12.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules:

- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different subject/composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.
- Please keep your entries under 50kb

Ideally, your photograph should be presented as taken with as little alteration in Photoshop or other image editing programs as possible.

I've got a question for the judges:

I've got a couple good pics I could use, but the thing is that I was playing with some depth of field tricks, so only part of the image is in sharp focus. Does 100% of the image need to be in focus?

Agree - some are way out of focus. Maybe we should have suggested that people take a look at what kind of photos usually are submitted for photoshop contests? Not to take away from everyone - there's a lot of really good on-topic photos here!

Hm...will this be problematic should pictures that obviously don't adhere to the theme place in the top three? Or will they just get submitted and the modmins will make the final call either way? If this is the Farktography give-back to the Fark community, it would be a shame if the PS that is supposed to be part of it ends up on the TotalFark cutting room floor because the pictures really aren't 'shoppable...

Maybe I've had too much to drink, but I find this theme a wee bit confusing. I hope these photos aren't too farked-up.

WenchyWoman: Hm...will this be problematic should pictures that obviously don't adhere to the theme place in the top three? Or will they just get submitted and the modmins will make the final call either way? If this is the Farktography give-back to the Fark community, it would be a shame if the PS that is supposed to be part of it ends up on the TotalFark cutting room floor because the pictures really aren't 'shoppable...

I wouldn't feel comfortable not submitting the top 3 even if they don't exactly fit the theme. Then again I really want the photoshoppers to be able to manipulate the images well, too. Will be interesting to see how it all comes out.

I know I'm losing Karma posting text in a farktography (especially when my entries are heavy in filesize, but they're on a fat pipe).

Marley they're both references to Katamari Damacy, the `Royal Rainbow` and `Ba. Na. Na.`

veruca: Maybe we should have suggested that people take a look at what kind of photos usually are submitted for photoshop contests?

Yeah, probably should have kept the theme as "Photoshopable" and had "everything in focus" in the directions.

There are very fine photos in this thread, but photoshopping them would be difficult. As WenchWoman said, I'd hate for the Farktography present to end up on the cutting room floor.

Holiday Inn on the South loop, next to the squat Pyramid looking building. I was there last weekend. Oddly enough it's the same hotel my school put me up in for the Deca meet I had there when I was a senior, it's the first time I've been to Lubbock since that trip. I didn't plan it that way, my company booked the room.

Congrats to yeimi, Bob Dole's Communist Doppelganger, and sensualstrwbry. Your photos will be posted as the "O's" for the photoshop contest which will (cross fingers that all falls into place) on Friday May 12. If you guys could email me hi-res copies copies for the 'shoppers so I can post them on the Farktography page I'd really appreciate it. Email in profile.

schnee, who was the idea man behind this week's contest, and some of the rest of us have decided (by consensus) to open this thread up wide for the photoshop contest as well. We will ask the photoshoppers to individually contact the non-winning farktographers who entered photos here for hi-res copies if they want to use other images from this thread.

Next Wednesday is our anniversary contest. Bring your top 3 photos from the last year or what you believe to be the best in your collection. Repeats allowed and encouraged. See you guys next week!
