Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Artistic Bent"

: Let your inner artiste out to play- Show us your three most artistic photos. Difficulty: Photos from previous contests will be allowed only if they were outside of the top ten finishes for that contest. More Difficulty: No HDR.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:

- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- 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 composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.

Please note:

The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. HDR, stitching, or otherwise combining exposures in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however).
See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.

- Drop by the Farktography Forum (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Stats can be found here.
- Image hosting sites can be found here.

Not photoshopped. Scan from a 35mm slide sandwich of a piece of Ektachrome and Ortho film...the original slide is contact printed to a 4x5 sheet of Kodak Ortho film, then the color positive and high-contrast B&W negative are aligned and taped together. Most colors get muted, but reds pop out through the clear BW film. Shot for my Advanced Photojournalism 622 class at OSU (advanced darkroom techniques, circa 1982...Photoshop was an actual place back then.)
