Time for another Friday prompt for your regular Monday edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge and this week it’s my turn to choose the theme.
I’d also like to update you on the scope of the challenge overall, after K’lee and I had a chat about how it was evolving the other day.
We’ve always wanted our collaborative challenge to focus on something more than just straight-from-the-camera images; we want to encourage the artistically-minded amongst you to showcase your optical experiments and fantastical photography, to go wild with editing and photo manipulation software, to make collages, create slideshows, composite images and gifs, to use layering, multiple exposures, black and white, Photoshop, Instagram and whatever else you can get your hands on.
And for those of you who wouldn’t usually muck about with the pristine results of your camera’s view of the world; throw caution to the wind and see what you can do with just a few little tweaks and adjustments, or by adding a simple filter to add extra atmosphere to a dramatic shot.
We want to see your creativity!
And we don’t mind how many photos you post, either. More than one of our contributors already submit wonderfully eclectic selections of pictures each week and it’s a pleasure to see the variety of interpretations, from different perspectives, that the prompts inspire in people.
I’m going to give you a lot of leeway again this week, but then again it’s very specific. The prompt for Monday’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is; Water.
Not just any old liquid; Water.
That pure life-giving fluid, without which, none of us would be here. The seas, rivers, pools, ponds, lakes, tarns and tributaries of the world have always made wonderful photo-opportunities, but then so have hosepipes, sprinklers, rain, ice, steam, frost and fog.
All water based, therefore all acceptable subjects for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, so choose one, choose all, or think of a completely different way to interpret the Wet Stuff and get involved on Monday.
To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.
Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.
Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.
