Entry Thread for "Out of Focus" 21st- 27th February
« on: February 19, 2011, 05:21:20 PM »
The theme for this week's comp is "Out of Focus". We all strive to make sure that we get our depth of field / focus just right but this weeks challenge is to get it all wrong - deliberately if possible but just your usual method will do if it is a common occurrence!
 Not just selective focus - I want every element of the image out of focus but still giving us a pleaseing image of anything that takes your fancy. So probably a manual focus job so your camera does not get it right for you !

No editing restrictions but don`t just use gaussian blur to put a focused image out of focus - try to do it in camera.

Pictures to be taken between 00.01am Monday 21st feb 2011 to 23:59 Sunday 27thFebruary 2011 .
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 28th February 2011.
Poll will be up Tuesday 1st March  until Friday 4th March.
Winner to be announced Saturday 5th March.

Couldn't resist it, and at only €10 an entry, who could?
