Evaluations - Life in BC n Yukon, Nature in the Raw, Open (7:00 PM PDT)
You can submit anything but here are some suggestions. Please do not include the Topic in the title of your image.
1) Highlighting Life in BC and Yukon
- This is rather open but taken in BC or Yukon. Maybe include animals, birds, insects, landscape, nature, people and/or wildlife. Show us the high lights.
2) Nature in the Raw
- Try getting that perfect in camera image. Avoid techniques that add, relocate, replace, or remove pictorial elements except by cropping. Keep editing to a minimum without changing the nature story or the pictorial content, or without altering the content of the original scene. Go ahead and remove things such as dust spots, digital noise, and film scratches.
- Since the focus is on Nature, try not to include ‘Hand-of-Man’ meaning, devoid of all human elements and impacts of human activities (people, power lines, jet streams, light pollution, man-made structures or paths, buildings, concrete, fences, etc).
3) Open – submit anything you want.
Try to get the title to match what you are trying to tell your audience in your image. Avoid using Cat1, or just tree. Instead say something like ‘curious cat’ if the cat looks curious. If the tree is blowing in the wind, maybe use ‘Wind Blown’ or ‘Swaying with the Music’.
