In this contest, photograph one person sitting in a chair. Nothing else can be in the shot. It must be obvious that there is at least one person sitting in a chair. Of course there's a catch; their face has to be hidden. No eyes, lips or nose can be viewable (ears are fine).
As long as part of the person and the chair is in the photo and you can tell they are sitting in the chair, without their face showing, it is on theme (benches and couches are off-theme). Have fun and good luck!

Seems contradicting. ( 5 years and 1535 days ago )
jawshoewhah: How does it seem contradicting? So far, all the authors who entered seemed to get it just fine. ( 5 years and 1535 days ago )
friiskiwi: It's the nothing else in the photo that has me confused. sorry if I sound picky, but I have had too many entries removed. ( 5 years and 1535 days ago )
jawshoewhah: I can relate with that. I think as long as you keep your subject close up, you'll be fine. Just avoid distracting background elements. ( 5 years and 1535 days ago )
jeaniblog: I'm not sure that all these shots with the heads just lopped off are all so artistic (although some are).. ( 5 years and 1532 days ago )
MnMCarta: Say "at least" one person... Can we have more than one then? Just wonna make sure cause sometimes people us "at least" and still mean "only" ( 5 years and 1531 days ago )
MnMCarta: man I can't type today... What I meant to say is that it "SAYS" at least one person... does that mean we can have more than one? Sometimes people "USE" that statement and still really mean another amount... like in this case 1. ( 5 years and 1531 days ago )
MnMCarta: anybody... anybody??? ( 5 years and 1530 days ago )
MnMCarta: HEY! Why was that shot of them awesome shoes removed??? ( 5 years and 1530 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Probably because their was something other than a chair and a person in the shot. ( 5 years and 1530 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Personally I think there's still entries that are off theme. I mean, why is "1 person, 1 chair" so hard to understand? ( 5 years and 1530 days ago )
MnMCarta: well it does say above "AT LEAST" one person and one chair. That makes me feel like it's a minimum...??? ( 5 years and 1530 days ago )
jawshoewhah: That was the point. To be minimal. When there's extra stuff like trees and bushes and guns, well then that's not exactly 1 chair, 1 person. Plenty of entries pulled it off just fine. ( 5 years and 1529 days ago )
toztone: some body remember the entryThe snow queen? well some moderator removeit because no on hteme. do really here some body etxra than moderator think tha wasnt on theme? why removeit when is nearly to end the contest, why if was no on theme they don remove it when the entry was submitted? ( 5 years and 1529 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Yes I remember that entry and THAT WAS AN AWESOME entry and never should have been removed, and yet, there's a half-dozen entries that stay that are off theme. ( 5 years and 1528 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Whoever is modding this contest.... you blew it..... ( 5 years and 1528 days ago )
Contest Moderator: if flags are placed, then they entry is acted on.......... all the entries removed had flags! if one entry has to be removed, then they all have to be removed. There is no rule for one and one rule for another in my book. ( 5 years and 1528 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Bushes, trees, rivers and guns are not people or chairs. I don't need a book to figure that out. ( 5 years and 1528 days ago )
