NEW Challenge. .... Eye of the Beholder 92

January 24th, 2018

Thanks so much to Diane @sunshinepx for hosting the last round of Eye of the Beholder. I was very surprised to take out the win with Me Old Boots ๐Ÿ˜Š

Now itโ€™s time to continue the search for unconventional beauty in EOTB92

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.

EOTB92 begins January 24th Jan and will close on February 8tj. 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 also share them to this thread to give others inspiration .

Enjoy the challenge! Keep your eyes open...find the beauty!

@babbs36 hello and welcome. To enter any of the competitions, just have a look foe the tag name. This one is EOTB92. When you upload your photo and tag the names, just make sure you tag the competition name... in this case EOTB92. Its as easy as that.

If you want to put the photo on the competition page. After your photo is uploaded have a look underneath your photo and you will see a little arrow that points to the right. If you click on this it will bring a link to your photo. If you copy this link and you can then paste your photo onto the competition page.
