What do you think about this one? There are triangles in the lines of the leaf, but the voters might not like that they are a little harder to see than the others. Keep in mind this one is a little smaller than what the voting preview will be like, if i shoot something like this again.

Here's the photo,

Thanks in advance,

Simon

Hey you're right...I was just having fun

Pizza is technically not triangular but everybody love a good pizza shot, every now and then. I mean, what's not to love?

I expect to see a few slices in this challenge and you know what they say about pizza slices or at least pizza images...

"even when they're bad, they're good."

(*scribble* *scribble*) Ok, and what would like to drink with that, sir? :-)

P.S. BTW, I think you may be confusing triangles with squares. ;-) The angles of a square sum to 360 degrees, but those of a triangle to 180. :-)

Here's a few shots I took 1 day too early....DOH!!!

Actually, I'd not submit this. Shapes made by trees are hard to distinguish against a wood background, they don't stand out enough.

I just posted my triangle entry. I'll just say that it's a "humor" entry -- a natural picture (not staged) that happens to be funny (at least, I think so), which will never be a wall-hanger. I realize that it will be rated lower because humor shots rarely do that well, but what the heck. Made me laugh, and it meets the theme, so voila. Entered.

The editing is illegal,I did some sky burning :-(

This actually stands out to me as a triangle. I like it.....

I got an unusual shot the other day. It's in my portfolio I called it "shoulda been triangles submission" I took it a day too early and the light was wrong anyway. I may go back and reshoot it. It's a really long hike in to get it though.

I'll score it based on the topping... if I like it (e.g. if it causes salivation) you get a 10. If it causes me to lose my appetite, I'll sink you with 2 or a 3. It has to be really bad for a 1. (Haven't given a 1 lately.)

How about the lines on the a leaf? There are many triangles, but people might complain because the shapes are not staring them in the face. What are your thought on this one?

Robert you should know by now that meeting a challenge head-on is very important.

I myself, am feelin kinda 4-ish about this one. I might have to take a couple of cold showers and hit the streets.

Hummmmm, so by actual letter of the law the picture must have soemthing in the shape of a triangle, or can it be something that is obviously configured or has definate traingle shapes within it? So a lemon or orange slice that is round, showing the individual "triangles" is it ok? A picture of a basketball showing the seams that form a triange? Let's not surprise those thinking out of the box, yes or no on items that have triangle shown or must it be a general triangle shape. What say ye all my friends???


The placement of objects in the composition can also form a triangle as stated in the description.

The objects do not have to be triangles however the composition must include a triangle. This can be imaginary lines connecting the objects in your composition to form a triangle. This is a standard element of design used frequently in photographs.

Consider this a free study to apply this technique.

Not many triangles foundin nature or purely. But pizza slices I am sure everyone has thought of that. Pie's and cakes as well. Yeild signs....maybe radioactive signs. The side of swing sets forms a triangle and probrably will be seen somewhere.

I was thinking about something similar to this:

but then figured it wouldn't do too well. I do like the message, however.
