Welcome to DC 36

Photography: Toys & Text

This is the second time we will be having some fun with photography wow.gif


Description
You will be taking 2 photos of a toy with a handmade sign/message. You have to hand-make the sign and take the picture yourself ... and it has to be taken especially for this contest. One photo will be your entry and the second photo will be of the same toy & same sign in a different position - this is only to prove that the photo was taken by you. (So if for example you take a photo of a teddy holding a sign in its arms then you also take another photo with the sign next to the teddy.)


About the text:
you have to make the sign/message yourself. You can simply write something in pen on paper or you can make something more complicated with cut outs & decoration elements (like people do with scrap booking). You can also write on a steamed up window or any other type of handwritten text. Any text is okay from example "Ouch" & "Woof" to "I love you" , "Merry Christmas", "Happy New Year", "I wish you were here", " No more war", "Stop global warming" etc.



About the toy: you can use any kind of toy like teddy bears, dolls, action figures, cars, Lego blocks, etc. Just keep the "adult toys" locked away in a cupboard thank you. I'm not going to accept your phone or iPod or tablet as a toy but specific electronic gaming systems (PlayStation/Xbox,etc) are okay. You can also use more than one toy example: 2 teddy bears/dolls in a toy car with a Just Married sign.

Examples:



Once you have taken your 2 photos you can re-size & crop the 1 you wish to enter so it fits any resolution supported in the Mobile9 wallpaper galleries.
You are allowed to enhance your image with the following:

- Brightness / Contrast
- Hue / Saturation
- Vibrance
- Color Balance
- Black & White
- Shadows / Highlight
- Crop / Rotate / Resize
- Blur / Sharpen
- You may also add a frame or border to your image, as long as it doesn't hide a great deal of the picture.

Everything else is forbidden!!! So no special effects, animations, overlays etc...!
Please reduce your picture to a reasonable size for the preview
!

You will post the following things in the Entry Thread:
1. You entry photo
2. Gallery link
3. 2nd photo showing the toy(s) & sign in a different position


The topic ends on Sunday 18 December at 18:00 GMT


Please note: I probably wont be around this week to comment or answer questions (before Friday).
I'm also not going to keep a list of participants so please feel free to simply join in and post your entries.
Please help out if someone asked a question & you know the answer.

EDIT: ooooh your "original" should be from a different angel or arranged in a different way ...
but I'll allow it this week since this is such a simple easy topic


I was sooooo lazy to get out of the pool today but here I am with a quick photo
now where's the rest of the participants? only 8 entries! surrender.gif
this took me 11min 48 sec from start to finish so the topic cant be that difficult wacko.gif



not sure about using a frame or not & obviously I didnt spend any time making a decent sign tongue.gif
original photo was taken in front of my pc screen:
