Right. You can't select just part of the image to do anything. At least that's my take.

I have a feeling we're going to see some superb shots in this challenge... I'd better start getting creative!

I wish I had a setup that would allow me to do the old bullet smashing through the apple photo. I guess I'd need a gun too. Oh well, I'm going to be driving to visit my brother about nine hours away, perhaps my wife & I can do some brain-storming to kill time. Think it's going to be a rainy weekend though.

Description: Take an apple (the fruit, not a computer!) anywhere, do anything you like to it, but make the shot your own.

I don't think you're being too literal, but some voters are likely to be. Were someone like James Nacthwey to enter an image showing angry protesters throwing many beautifully bruised apples at soldiers aiming uzis (the weapon choice here is NOT deliberate), with excellent details (including anguished, angry and emotional faces) and sharp focus, as well as some motion blur in parts, with the lighting just right -- in other words, a 10 picture by a 10 photographer -- I'm sure these voters would still score it a 1 because the image does not absolutely, narrow-mindedly and fascistically "meet the terms of the challenge."

First time ever, I was actually able to get a shot in before the last hour. I love my entry but I just know I am going to get killed! I honestly don't care though, if one person "gets it" and I'll be doing the Snoopy dance. I'm so excited I can't believe I have to wait a whole week.

Maybe that's why I always wait until last minute, subconsciously I knew I'd act like a kid counting down to Christmas if I submitted early. =)

Time for a divorce, or at least a trial separation.

Just kidding...
05/11/2005 03:27:25 PM · #17
why not both?

Cross perspective...

One do it as a normal shot...the other bring a ladder and take the same shot from top down at some really wide angle or far telephoto angle.

Something really weird just happened!. My husband and I just met up after work and started discussing the scores on our pix for "triangle" and I asked him if he'd seen the new challenge of "Apple". He said he had and had a great idea. I said that I had too and without saying what it was said I was going for a fun pic and needed something (can't say what here as would give pic away). He looked at me with horror and said he needed the thing too! Guess what? we both had decided on the identical shot!!!Out of all the places you could put an apple!! We are now deciding who gets the shot!! (Pistols at dawn?)

"do anything you like to it"
Does this line scare the crap out of anyone else....???

Pictures Bob from the Enzyte commercial completely naked holding an apple in front of his crotch grinning as he does.

*shudder*
