ºººeye of the beholder 90ººº

November 27th, 2017
Thanks so much to @granagringa for hosting the last round of Eye of the Beholder. It's my very favourite 365 challenge and I'm thrilled and honoured to have won the last round :)

Now it’s time to continue the search for unconventional beauty in EOTB90.

If you're not sure what this challenge is all about, here is a description:

In the words of Jeff Walker, the creator of this challenge, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" (quoting Margaret Wolfe Hungerford who is credited with coining the phrase in 1878).
Your objective in this challenge is to catch something most people would not consider to be beautiful, and find a way to capture it so that it comes across beautifully. You can achieve it any way you wish. This challenge will help you with your composition and lighting skills. The way you compose the shot or the way you use light will usually bring out the beauty of your subject. It will also help you look at your surroundings differently. Everything is potentially a beautiful photograph. It is not a matter of finding something to photograph, but finding a way to photograph something that makes photographing it worthwhile.

There is no specific item or theme for this challenge, but the subject you photograph has to be something that, if people were watching you photograph it, they would be wondering what has possessed you to photograph something which seems so plain, bland, boring, ugly, etc. Beauty is where you find it, and it is all around you. Train your eye to see things differently.

EOTB90 begins today 27 November and will close at midnight GMT on Monday 11 December, giving you a fortnight to take a welcome break from the crazy Christmas run-up, and find some beauty in those unusual places. Your photos must be taken and posted during that time. I'll have the always difficult task of selecting some finalists and then you all get to vote for the winner!

Please tag your photos eotb90; if you like please also share them to this thread to keep it active.

Enjoy the challenge! Keep your eyes open...follow the light!

Hi Clare! I read now your post and I'm afraid that the tag you have written it's not correct... shouldn't it be EOTB90 ??? :)
