Hello everyone!

This months subject: The worst expression

You know how you take pictures, and you catch people blinking or chewing or doing something, and the person comes out with this horribly disfigured expression on their face? It could even just be the worst expression! Use your imagination :D

Rules: This is strictly a photography contest! No photochopping, but contrast, brightness, levels and other minor touch-ups (healing tool will be allowed for film and print scans). Please avoid any text on the photograph, except at most a copyright statement, remember distractions like text can take away from the composition. Digital and film photography are both allowed. Only one submission per user will be allowed.

You MUST have taken the image yourself.


Max size dimension: 640px (including border)
Max file size: 150kb
(Please ensure your entry meets the above before entering your image)

Length: Competition closes Monday, August 15th 2005 at 7:00 PM GMT. Voting lasts five days after close of competition.

The winner needs to PM me the topic for the next competition (please try to think up topics while voting goes on, in case you win).

Go for it! I don't have any good ones and doubt that I'll be able to take one for this competition. I love the idea though.

That can't possibly be as bad as the expression that chap had about 1 minute (guys, im sure you understand) after that happened. I can imagine fetal position with excruciating pain. heh.

I had to crop the image , it was a bit large .
It is a bit blur , I know . Just for a brief history , it was during a play at school and the person is Gandhi , in the play ( who could have guessed?)
Well , it was , lets say refreshment time before play when i took this picture.

Agreed, and perhaps a portion of a bare leg, and maybe even a shoe. Point is the competition subject is "expression". At the moment I don't see that this one qualifies.
