Rules

- Fairly simple rule in this contest. Under here is 2 photos, your goal is to take a photo that is similar to one of those two.
- It has to be your own photo
- you can change color and contrast e.t.c, but do not manipulate ( Change shapes, add or remove object )
- it will be open for about a month, So take your time and do your best  

*New*
- It does not have to be a flawless piece, the winner will be chosen based on creativity, how similar it is in terms of depth of field and composition, and how tec good it is. So you don`t have to have it all to the max.
- It has to be a new piece, taken after this journal was written
- you can only upload ONE photo ( you can off course upload several, but you can only enter one to the contest, and you have to pick it yourself )

So.. Theme is obviously book pages.. but how similar exactly? Are we supposed to imitate one of your shots in terms of composition or color or should we make something very own which meets the style of yours?
Reply
:iconsortvind:
Sortvind Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2011
i think i will leave that up to each to decide.
it does not have to look just like my shots, but shallow focus and vivid colors is a very good start :aww:

What are you looking for in the results? The picture that looks most like yours? The picture that was the most creative? The picture with the best technical aspects?
Reply
:iconsortvind:
Sortvind Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2011
I think you nailed it there, you mentioned every aspect.
All those matters :)
it does not have to be a flawless piece.
creative and following some of my photos in terms of focus and compositon is the main thing :aww:
