jerostone: Heh, heh, thiw brings back some bitter memories. A few years back, when I suggested the same kind of topic, I caused quite an uproar! ( 5 years and 1000 days ago )
WYSIWYG: A bit dull contest in my opinion, because it does not really show ones photography skills. ( 5 years and 1000 days ago )
friiskiwi: WYSIWYG, it will be interesting to see what we get, hopefully we will be surprised. ( 5 years and 1000 days ago )
Artifakts: Are graffitis considered as "paintings" ? ( 5 years and 1000 days ago )
friiskiwi: To be sure that we see the full painting, should the edges of the painting be visible? ( 5 years and 999 days ago )
kyricom: Seems like we've had this discussion before. Personally, I think we ought to use the concept of "subsumtion." In other words, a "painting" is more specific than "graffiti." Or, all graffiti is a form of painting, but not all paintings are graffiti. We have had seperate graffiti themes, so this would be a seperate "paintings" theme. Graffiti should be off-theme (IMHO) ( 5 years and 999 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Graffiti and stained glass will be allowed, the contest has no restriction on materials.
However the description mentions "The full painting has to be visible", this means there has to be some kind of ending of the painting showing, this means either a frame, the edge of a canvas, empty wall on graffiti. This means close ups will not be allowed. ( 5 years and 998 days ago )
TankRed: I would assume light painting isn't allowed ( 5 years and 996 days ago )

I'm fascinated by the details of this painting on the glass. The shade and the highlight are very lively (5 years and 999 days ago)
