all of my photographs have been taken for my art photography course.

Heres just a few random ones that ive picked out.

This was from a set of images exploring "transition", and my chosen topic was movement within football/sports (obviously)
Sports poster



(I have to say this one looks much better printed on a A2 canvas than on a computer screen)


This next image was from the topic of nature, I chose to use the macro function on the camera to get up close shots:
Ice Leaf




This image was taken in response to the title "out of this world" I again used the macro function so that i could get
close up shots. This made the subject of the image indistingishable and therefore "out of this world"
Alien



I used photoshop to edit the contrast and brightness of the image to give it a more mysterious look

HALA my ARSE!

Hey it's wonderful to be back!

First, thanks for your entries please, keep them coming!

Welcome to the Art Forum, juanmanuelmata

@ R0naldo:
You all may change your images as long as it/they have not been posted in the October Submission Gallery -- in this case, they have not

@ JawZ and buzyb:
Good to read your posts, pictures soon, I hope?

One last question: does anyone know how to contact colocolo (via msn or e-mail?) His account doen't accept PMs and we'd love to let him know about the Oct contest.

alright guys, my contributions. hope you like them:

1. Flowerish - took this one in the Mirabellpark in Salzburg. Nice place to visit in the summer.







2. Antagonism (filtered with Photoshop) - Next to all the fancy things in Venice, this old idle street caught my eye.







3. Enjoy the silence - Again Venice. A lonely gondola.




Camera: Fuji Finepix F40fd
