Good photos are like good jokes. If you have to explain it, it just isn't that good. Sometimes it is interesting to hear the story behind the photo, and you see the photo in a new light, but in most cases a good photo shouldn't need an explanation. It should speak for itself.
The goal of this contest is to show us a photograph which tells a story. Maybe a dog waiting for his master or a child who got bruised after being too active on the playground... To make sure you're on theme, please make sure to read about it HERE. This tutorial will give you more details on how to take shots that appear to have a story behind it.
Required level: 10+ or higher. Status: finished. Check out the winners below!
mperri: This is sooo subjective... This is one of those contests where people will be defending their photos forever!!! ( 5 years and 2197 days ago )
jawshoewhah: I am guessing that if there is a controversal subject or perhaps more than one subject doing something differntly from the other subjects, it might make a good entry. In fact, it almost seems like the onlhy off theme entries would be (pictiures of white washed walls or portraits but still I guess they are also open to debate as to what kind of story it tells. I am thinking just looking for entries with a conroversal subject or a lot going on so it will take you a few to really sok it all in. Is that what you had in mind, Guilla? Feel free to confirm or correct me if I'm a little off as far as interpretaion. ( 5 years and 2197 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Or even entries that show less pose and more possibility of action like the photo is a page of a story. I think I am closer with that one ( 5 years and 2197 days ago )
mperri: This is one of those contests where a photo montage would be easier to narrow down the on topics! ( 5 years and 2197 days ago )
