It was just a competition of photographing a piece of tile?
Whats the point? Where is the art side of the pictures?

When you will take another photographic competition? I would like to take part in it.

Last photo comp winner suggested the topic "Tiles" if you ever win, then you can pick whatever topic you feel is appropriate.

Next comp will be whenever justG emails me the topic of his choice

Weldone JustG. I think the voting was brilliantly done, It was a tough decision to make, so for there to be 1 vote between all 3 entries to decide the winner then i think we can be pleased with the entries posted.

He is actually a She. Isn't he/she?

The G stands for Gina, so unless i'm mistaken "Gina" is a female name.

Well, I'd expect you to have a little imagination and creativity when aiming a photograph. If you can't think of how a photograph that includes tiles as an element of the photograph might be interesting, that's your fault.

I dont think there is something interesting in the photo that has won!
I really think that there is no imagination for that photo. No names.

I`m not telling you that I have the best imagination.

This is not the smartest conversation.
I am not a person who wants to crash anything. I just realy want that the competitions here would be much better. I want it to be more challenging, more photographs to vote for, better photo quality, etc.
Being a photographer I dont wanna take part in a competition like that.

Everyone want to reach the better results, do ya?

I completely appreciate what you are saying nukacola, but it is up to people like yourself and even myself to take part in these sort of competitions and make them better. If your a photographer then you are bound to have a higher understand of a good photograph than an amateur that has posted their pictures.

I am studying photography right now, and i look to these competitions to have an understanding of a good photograph and i will agree that some of the latter have not been that good. I think it does go down to the topic title, however anyone can make a good picture out of anything if they put a little thought in what they are doing. People don't see these competitions as being something worth spending a great deal of time to work towards as there are no rewards. It is all for a bit of fun.

When the next topic starts, i really want to take part. I hope you will also take part as well and we can see how good we can make it. Just remember that everyone here dosn't really take part to win. Some can be joke entries, and some might be amateur photographs the member will have found in their archives somewhere. Let's enjoy the fact we have a competition section on this site.

=) that`s great.
I will try to take part in competition.
Anyway, its not a complete PhotoForum, its webmasters forum, so that is great that here is a topic for it.

BTW, SB, what are you studing in photo classes right now?

thank you for being so kind

I'm just getting to know the basics of Photography so i can put together a portfolio of work which will allow me to study at a higher standard in the next year or so.

It would be good to use these competitions as a place where i can show and experiment with some of my new work. The only problem is i only wish i had a Digital SLR camera now. I am using a 35mm film SLR camera for my college work.

I like film cameras much more than a digital.
Its great for you that you are shooting with film. Shooting on a digital is much simplier.

Thanks again, everyone, I've been too busy to check in at Ozzu for the past month and just saw that I'd won this comp. I appreciate your votes and comments, and I'm sorry I disappeared.

nukacola, like you said in your next-to-last message, this is a place for webmasters, not digital artists and photographers, and that's probably also why our participation isn't exactly through the roof. Those who want to truly cut their teeth on some real challenges know to go to places like CGNetwork, IllustrationFriday, Worth1000, DPChallenge, ePhotoZine, etc. I studied photography for years, and I would never have entered either my sketch or my snapshot on any of those sites. But that doesn't mean I can't have some fun, just for the fun of participating and feeling more a part of this community. This is a place where those of us who dabble can have some fun and yes, submit joke entries, without feeling totally self-conscious.

SB, as you are a student of photography and here to learn, let me enlighten you: my submission was a snapshot, not a photograph. Just so y'know. =]

As for my name, it's Gita. And ya, I'm a girl. =]

You have submitted a joke entry, Gita. That`s ok. But really, could you please point me to that funny place in your photography-snapshot that I should laugh at? Really?! :lol: I`m going crazy!

Really, you dont have to talk with me, as i`m the beginner here i mean a novice. And here is a webmaster forum BUT DAMN! OZZY is now ready to take a photo competitions and as i can see its already a competition # 25!

This is making me laugh now, really. I`m not rude or impolite... I`m just curious.... Please dont be mad at me.... :lol:

Don't you mean Ozzu? :wink:

The good thing about the photographs/snapshots in these competitions is we are all supposed to read it in our own little way. So what may be funny to JustG might not necessarily be funny to you nukacola.

I find nukacola to be somewhat rude and lacking some basic understanding of what these competitions are for.

The last I checked the comps were not for someone to come in and criticize our stuff, especially when they have not participated in any of the comps.

I was under the impression that they were for fun and for some of us to show off our talents or lack there of in my case.

Whatever.

Funny.. when the boys used to pull my hair because they "liked" me and wanted to "attract" me, I turned around and decked 'em. What's that about attracting more flies with honey than vinegar..?

Oy. I tried to stay out of this. *bites tongue, slaps fingers away from keyboard..."
