Photo Contest - July


Recommended Posts

Subject: Industrial Decline

Closing Date: 8PM, 31st July 07

The subject for this month's Rllmuk photo contest, as chosen by last months winner, iwan canobi, is Industrial Decline. No guidelines here, just get out there and shoot your own interpretation of the theme.

The contest is open to anyone on the forum. Don't worry about your skillz - this is just for fun - but hopefully it will help people improve their photography, whatever level they're at. To aid this, feedback and constructive criticism are encouraged.


- Photographs must be taken by you - no nicking them off the Web

- Photos must be taken specifically for the contest - get out there and get snapping!

- One picture per person.

- No excessive digital manipulation (i.e. adding a more dramatic sky from another photo to your picture, or creating negative images etc.). Cropping and adjusting levels, contrast, saturation etc. is ok though.

- Equipment: Anything goes as long as the results can be seen from here.

- Voting takes place when the contest closes.

- The winner of the contest gets to choose the next subject.

- Late entries will not be included in the voting.

Any suggestions on how to make this run better are welcome in the rules discussion topic.

NOTE: Please do not post pictures in this thread unless they are valid entries for the contest (see rules above). Thanks.

Picture taken last Friday in the bicycle tube of the Maastunnel in Rotterdam, built in the 1930's. A whole section of the tiling and concrete had come off, revealing the reinforcing steel rods and piping. They probably fixed it the next day since it's actually in frequent use and painstakingly maintained. Picture taken with my phone, a SE K800i.

Seemingly not a very popular contest this month.

I'm not overly happy with this and it may be a placeholder if I can find better.


I've done a BW version too that's on my Flickr but I think this one just pips it.

EDIT: Changed from this. See next post of mine for current entry.

Ok, so Im now thinking maybe this was too specific a subject, after driving around for a good day and not finding anythin that caught my eye, hopefully get a trip into the town before the deadline and get something better, but if not then this will have to do! Just wish i could've found something to get a more interesting composition, as I liked the writing on the tank
