Entries for Fortnightly Competition #43- Faces


Link Posted 27/05/2010 - 02:44
OK everyone I am sure this subject has not been on the forum or any other competitions... But I thought this would be interesting. Making us photographer more aware of what we see,taking a second look! "Faces" Not portraits of people’s faces, but images of face that can be seen in a object , or the shape of a face in some kind of object, material or whatever.

Example : I saw one in our main gallery by bwichmawr " The Green Door" added 20/05/2010... Please have a look. I often have seen the image of faces in many ordinary object.

Let your imagination roll... I will be judging on how well I can see the face., the quality of picture, and how creative you are in finding faces that are unique.

Same rules as usual: No pictures taken before May 26th Competition ends on June 9/2010 at 6pm .

Taken with a Pentax camera, all EXIF must be attached or included with the posted photo.

I believe Darlene is referring to this shot - I may be wrong as it was posted on the 18th.


You can see some of my shots at my Flickr account.

Guys, this is the entries thread. Comments in the usual place please.

Smiley Soup

Taken Saturday 29th May 2010

K10D + DA35
ISO 100
1/8 sec
No flash

Whilst 'acting as waiter' at lunchtime, I noticed that my father's soup had a face in it, but decided that I could not really ask him to delay eating whilst I found a camera etc.

But then I discovered that my own soup also had a face, so I was able to 'grab' a quick shot whilst everyone else started

Not a technically perfect shot, but the chef was getting restless

Delicious soup as well

Kx + Sigma 30, taken this morning, Cropped & Sepia PP.

It looks like a face in profile to me, maybe a horse or a monster... if you see it you do, if you don't...well wasn't that the point?

I believe its accidental placement of knots, this is the carved bench its taken from.

Oooh my first competition entry. Its only to stop me staring cross-eyed at every crack in the pavement!
Still shooting in the dark (literally and metaphorically)...
