20080713 'The Vibrant Triangle'
This competition was open to students of my "Introduction to Digital Photography" classes. The theme was "The Vibrant Triangle" (we live in the Triangle area of NC). Entrants could submit up to ten pictures, any size up to 16"x20", mounted or not (no prejudice either way in judging), B&W or color. Work submitted was to be entrants' own original work, taken with a digital camera at any time; no photo editing other than sharpening, cropping, other standard optimizations like digital artifact reduction and contrast adjustment, or panoramic processing was allowed (photo.net's definition of unmanipulated image with the allowance of panoramic processing). I judged the (physical and not these later submitted electronic) pictures on criteria of creativity, aesthetics, and interpretation of the theme. I didn't realize till I received the images that "Triangle" was ambiguous and some used the term geometrically instead of geographically. I judged the prints with either definition in mind. All of these pictures are by the named photographer, who retains all rights. Please email me to be put in touch with any of the photographers if you want permission to copy or print any of their images.Read More
