Poll question: ****August Photo Contest (prelim) *TEXTURE* Poll #1
Edited on Sun Aug-20-06 03:32 PM by bvar22
Welcome to the August Photography Contest! :party:
Come in browse around and enjoy the fantastic photos created by a great bunch of very talented people in the Photography Group. Please don't forget to vote for your favorite.



The theme for the August Photo Contest is "TEXTURE".
TEXTURE:
1) The visual or tactile surface characteristics and appearance of an object

2) "something that invokes a sense of feel, emphasizing how something would feel if you were touching it, smooth, rough, soft, prickly, ripply, whatever." (thanks, Blue)


The top two finishers in each round will advance to the finals, along with the next four highest vote-getters overall.
The preliminary round will end at midnight, August 24th.

The FINAL 10 will be posted on August 25th!

The Photography Group would like to thank The Lounge for your participation in our monthly contests!

I have one of these beautiful birds myself, and that captures its essence perfectly.

11. So hard to choose
But the parrot photo made me just itch to stroke him. I could practically feel feathers under mu fingers.

But they are all gorgeous shots.

Just out of curiosity, what would you have entered if you made the submission cut off?
