Photo Contest


#1

So I want to enter this photo contest to win $500 at my school. I'm not a photographer though and not sure what makes a good picture. Here are some of the ones I was contemplating, I could use some help picking one out of this bunch.

first one

last one i could prob make sky and water bluer i think


#9

I'm not a photographer but I really like number five. It kind of plays into a whole powerless in the face of nature/solitude thing...


#10

ya I like that one too, I was wondering if it was too simple though, got 3-4 more to post and I'll post some poor quality pics of previous year winners

last one. so all these are from NL (1-7) and portugal 8-11 taken by me or my gf. I have tweaked 1-6 to brighten colors, can probably do same for others making sky bluer and grass greener.

6 with a little curves action would be fantastic.


#16

pic of previous year winners (photos on wall at school). hard to see I know but you get an idea of level of competition here.


#17

and third. So as you can see pretty stiff standards i think. I'm hoping no one applies for this sort of thing so I can win it.


#18

hmmm, what do you mean curve action? My photoshoping skills are limited


#19

second one again of past winners


#20

I believe its under image>adjustments>curves
Try the auto setting, and if that doesn't work, mess with it.
