We are pleased to announce the launch of the second Digital Lightroom Photography Competition. The purpose of this competition is to celebrate photography. We’re not interested in the equipment you own but your eye for a photograph. It’s all about the pictures.
We have 3 great prizes on offer from our sponsors at Topaz Labs.
Topaz Lens Effects brings all of your camera lenses and filters (and even those you don’t have yet) together in a powerful and easy-to-use plug-in, eliminating the need for additional and expensive equipment, while providing unparalleled editing flexibility. The diverse range of effects made possible by virtual simulation of common lenses, filters and specialty cameras make it easier than ever to change or emphasize focal points, adjust depth-of-field, add vignettes, balance color tone, create miniature scenes and so much more.
Create rich and dynamic images full of compelling tone and detail with this all-in-one solution for professional black and white photos. Use over two hundred beautiful 1-click effects, a finely tuned B&W conversion engine, unique creative processing, selective adjustment brushes, and pixel-perfect grain reproduction to enhance your art. Make your photos perfect with the most powerful B&W software available.
Topaz Detail puts unique detailing capabilities right at your fingertips. Built with one-of-a-kind technology, this plug-in is invaluable for photographers who want precise and intricate detailing abilities that will help achieve high-quality enhancements. The advanced power of Topaz Detail offers attention to detail like no other breaking down an image into three levels of internal detail separation and three levels of tone separation. What makes Topaz Detail stand apart from other detailing tools is the flexibility and control that allows you to selectively enhance or remove detail throughout your image without the side effects of halos or artifacts.
The theme for the competition is Movement and Motion.
The photographs entered in the competition will be judged by a panel of experienced photographers who will choose a shortlist of ten photographs. This shortlist will go to a WordPress community vote.
All entries should be received by Friday, 19th of April. That gives you two full weeks to get out there and start taking pictures. The shortlisted photographs will be posted here, on this blog, for the voting to take place.
The winners of the last DLR competition will be guest posting in the coming week and we’ll be posting some articles to help get you started with the theme this time. We will also post a collection of entries as they come in so be sure to add The Digital Lightroom to the list of blogs that you follow.
Entries should be emailed to – firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s very important that you add ‘Photo Submission’ to the subject field of your email and that you include a title for your picture, your name and your blog/website address if you have one, in the body of the email. You can see a more detailed list of rules here.
