Ynysangharad Park - Bandstand 1 by JDS-photo
Ynysangharad Park - Bandstand 1
This was taken when I started doing photography about 2 years ago under the dA name of joshere. Not a good choice huh?
Anyway, those who have been following me since the beginning may recognise this photo. I did have this in my gallery, but I decided to take it down for a few different reasons, mostly to re-edit it (as well as change the watermark on the photo). I used the opportunity to try out editing a B&W picture in DxO Optics Pro 7, and the results were kind of interesting...
I think that the tones are better and more realistic in this edit than in the original photo, but the detail still looks blurred when zoomed in (although I was using a cheap bridge camera at the time, so that doesn't always help).

So what do you think? Please feel free to comment and critique! All feedback is welcomed and appreciated! =D

WINTER COMPETITION!

Mon Dec 1, 2014, 4:51 PM
Hi members! It's time to announce the Pure--Nature winter competition!
So just like last year, this competition will be focusing on Winter. The piece can be about anything related to Winter. Snow, Ice, Christmas, anything you want. And unlike previous competitions, this is exclusively for Pure--Nature members, so you need to be a Pure--Nature member to take part in this competition.
 
There will be up to three prizes available, depending on the amount of entries recieved.


Prizes


1st Place (3+ entries)

100 Points
Feature by JDS-photo and Pure--Nature

2nd Place (4+ entries)

50Points
Feature by JDS-photo and Pure--Nature

3rd Place (5+ entries)

25Points
Feature by JDS-photo and Pure--Nature


Rules

To enter, please submit your works to the "Winter Competition 2014 entries" folder in Pure--Nature's Favourites. All eligible entrants should be able to submit to the folder without any problems, but when choosing what to submit, choose carefully, as there is a limit!

Please be aware that entries will need to be accepted by us before they show in the competition folder! This is just to ensure that all entries meet the rules, so please don't resubmit your entries if they don't show up in the folder. Pieces that have been used in a previous Pure--Nature competition will not be accepted. If you have any concerns, please send a note to me or the group, and I'll see what I can do.

Only 2 pieces can be submitted per person!
Please be cautious when submitting a piece as we will not replace/change any entries unless there has been a technical error.

All entries will follow the "In Harmony with Nature" rules, so nature must have a presence within the piece.
Submissions will close on the 21st December at 3pm (UK time), with voting commencing shortly after.

If there is any problems, please feel free to message me and I'll try and help the best I can.

Good luck everyone!
