DSS Challenge #101- Texture
Welcome to Round #101 of the Dgrin Sharp Shooters Challenges. This challenge is open to any Dgrin member that is not listed for Mega round #16.

It will run from Monday, April 16, 2012 8:00pm PST time (GMT -8) on through Monday, April 30, 2012 8:00pm PST time (GMT -8).

The topic ready for your interpretation: Texture

Many interpretations to this round! Whether you take a picture of something that has lots of texture in it (wood, stone, fabric... ect), or you create your own texture by layering another textured image on top of an image (it has to be something you took a picture of and either stressed or left as is, but has to have an EXIF). No pre-loaded textures may be used even if you made the texture in the past.

All textures that are layered on top of an image have to have an EXIF as well as the image you took for the challenge has to have its own EXIF. You cannot create a texture using a paint program. It has to be something you took a picture of and you can choose to manipulate that image in any way to create the texture layer.

Adding noise to an image is not what we are looking for. You MAY add noise to your textured layer if that is what you choose, I am refering to not just adding noise filters to one image and say its a textured image. The purpose here is to explore how to create a more interesting image using textures layers. However, since some may not be willing to or able to learn this style due to lack of programs or time, I give you the option to just take a single picture of something with a lot of texture.

Also I would like to remind you all to please limit your titles to just a few words and not long run on descriptions or sentences. There is a limited amount of characters that the poll program will take per entry. Thank you! :)


Your Judge:
1 round 72 Hour Public Vote.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Your entry is to be submitted directly into a SmugMug gallery. It's pretty simple, just go to the gallery link below, and follow the upload instructions at the top of the page:

Remember, the basics stay the same: 1 entry per person, and the photo must be fresh, taken during this contest period. Do not use a minimal save method (such as "save for web"), and your EXIF will be embedded in your image, no worries!

To avoid disqualification, read, in full, the Dgrin Sharp Shooters Challenge Rules.

Sometimes, it is better to be kind than to be right. We do not need an intelligent mind that speaks, but a patient heart that listens. Unknown
