I can’t come up with anything witty this week. But anyway, your mission, should you choose to accept it (and you should), is:
Take a picture of a skyline.
Trees, buildings, whatever against the sky. I took this picture along the Rideau Canal today, with my Nikon D70s, then hit the auto-level button on Paint.Net. Looks pretty hipster to me. Not the best example, but the best I could do on a whim.
And now, The Rules:
1. You can submit one or two pictures for the challenge, preferably recent pictures. You can submit in a number of ways:
- Post it via Kinja comment
- Post it to a photo sharing site such as Flickr, 500px, et cetera, then link it back here in a comment.
- Send photos to my e-mail at leducthecanuck [at] gmail.com (you know how to format). Have this week’s challenge as your subject header, and be sure to include your blurb and username so I know who to credit these to. Also, include a link to your Kinja, since we usually link those in the galleries.
- Send me a map with the location of your shot, as well as optimal time and direction for the shot to be taken. You lazy jerk.
2. The deadline is 23:59 EST on Sunday. The exhibition post will be up some time on Monday. Each week’s new mission will be posted on Monday.
3. This is not a judged competition. This is just for fun and to show of our work.
4. With your submission please tell us about the photo. The specs, the location (if you’re comfortable with that), and the background story of it.
5. Any camera is welcome, even phone cameras. I would prefer for people to not use automatic modes, but I accept that composition/etc. will still produce a good photograph with the camera in automatic mode. Editing is allowed.
These missions are intended to be fun, and to give people a reason to get out and shoot. I would like for positive discussion to come about from these, as well as to increase the participation on Photography Kinja. I know there are a lot of new people here that are participating, so I look forward to their contributions!
I will take suggestions on the next week’s mission objective.
Now, go on and complete your mission!
