The theme is "Dark Art" (for their October juried show)

I can enter three

The judge also has a lot of black cat photos on his site. I thought of this one. I'd need to subsitute a real crow or raven, though, because The fake one is too obviously fake

They are all wonderful, love your imagination,
in my opinion, considering the theme, I like 1 & 2 and cat and crow if you can
do something with the crow,
good luck

All good. I particularly like #4. The cat and the crow are worth a redo if you can substitute the crow.
10/13/2022 08:13:07 PM · #4
1, 2, & 4 for me.

Yeah, okay....

Choose dark images from YOUR freakin' port!

This from your post is definitely good.

Along that line......

These are from a quick spin through your port without getting crazy. I can't imagine trying to go through all your stuff.

My only suggestion might be to clone out the white blaze in "Intensity". You'd have to look and see what you think.

I picked these five 'cause they all suggest to me a moment paused on the way to a deeper, perhaps darker story.

YMMV.....

Cool -- Thanks everyone! (and thanks Jeb, I never thought of some of those. The doorway is tempting, but I thought the carpeting ruined it a bit. It would have been a much better shot if it was a hard wood floor.

I'm going to print out 1,2,4 and the cat, and most likely go with 1, 2 and 4. But will see what they look like when they print.

The cat will be problematic because I don't have the original anymore. I'm missing 1-2.5 years of photos that are on a harddrive that keeps spinning but doesn't load. I didn't realize that when I posted. I worked on the 1200px version. The raven photo I had didn't work, so I tried to replace just the legs, but I don't think that worked either. I'm going to print it out anyway, because I think it's rather funny, and people might enjoy seeing it at my art shows. Might print it small.

Here's the redo -- I don't think the legs look natural. But maybe small they will.

Never seen these before Wendy! I love BOO. The sneakers are fabulous.. I also like 1 and 2, but love BOO!

1, 4, & 6
The crow in #6, obviously not real, was kind of humorous. Now it's kind of creepy. More the better.

Thanks guys.

I entered these:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1273711.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1273711.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1273714.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1273714.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1273733.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1273733.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I was going to enter this instead of the cat but it didn't look as good printed

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1273710.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1273710.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Only this one got accepted.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1273711.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1273711.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I was glad to get one in, but was terribly disappointed that this one wasn't accepted. It's one of my favorites, and I really thought it would make it :(

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1273714.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1273714.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Thanks again for your help!

I rarely enter juried shows due to the attitude and selection process.

I remember one of my first shows I entered two with white mats and black frames and they were accepted.

I also entered this one with an olive green mat and a dark cherry wood frame.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/889/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_698625.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/889/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_698625.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

The amount of crap I got from everyone involved in the show was off the charts.......unprofessional, poor choice, not properly rendered, blah, blah, blah, NEVER anything for shows other than white mat, black frame.

Someone who had stopped into the gallery three days before the show bought it on the spot and they had to beg him to at least leave it for the show.

So don't let their choice, or lack thereof, get you down.

I believe everyone here liked that one you thought was a cinch to make it, I sure did.

Their loss.....
