***AUGUST PHOTO CONTEST: FIRST PRELIMINARY THREAD*** [View all]

***August Photo Contest, Preliminary Thread One of Three***

This is the first preliminary thread for the August Photo Contest. The theme, as chosen by last month’s winner AndyS, is as follows:

"The unseen world. The small things we walk past every day; the beauty in the bouquets in the floral department at the grocery store, the zen of stones in a garden, that lone green sprout in the compost or that small creature under your feet. Not necessarily macro but that's not excluded. Butterflies and birds reach out and grab our attention but I'm encouraging all of us to take note of the more subtle compositions around us. As for post processing, sure if it makes the image more appealing or enhances the connection between the subject and viewer. Most of all HAVE FUN with it."

Please vote for the entry that you think best typifies this theme. There are three threads. Please vote in all three, and leave comments. We love to hear what you think. These preliminary threads will run for seventy two hours. They are posted here in GD by permission of the administrators.

Thanks for voting.
