Contest goal:

I once was assigned the color purple for a color as subject assignment. Late winter before the flowers started to bloom made it a true challenge. With spring here I thought that it would be interesting to see how much purple in nature we could find. No man made subjects. Flowers, bugs, fruit...whatever you can find!

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

dem90: Question, I have a shot where the person and nature are the subject, would that be ok? ( 5 years and 1218 days ago )
downoffthedragon: As long as the natural object is purple.

friiskiwi: I assume the 'purple' thing has to be in it's natural environment? Meaning you can't buy purple flowers and shoot them in the studio? ( 5 years and 1218 days ago )
downoffthedragon: Friiskiwi: I wasn't really concerned with the location of the purple thing when I suggested the contest. Just as long as the thing is a natural thing. It's been 2 days since your question and the MODs haven't responded, so I'm assuming that it is ok with them, too. : )

friiskiwi: The Mod is stuck in a storm and not much power. Problem with suggesting a contest is, that they way other people interpret it, is often very different from what the suggester had in mind. ( 5 years and 1215 days ago )
Contest Moderator: As long as the MAIN subject is naturally purple then i will accept it. ( 5 years and 1214 days ago )
