Announcing the March 2011 theme challenge - Monochrome Birds

The theme for March 2011 is 'Monochrome Birds'.

Entries can either be Artwork or a photograph of a bird or birds appearing in Black & White or Sepia tones.

Converting a photo to monochrome is quite easy - such as a filter, convert to greyscale or use of the hue/saturation control to remove all colour from the image.

The process may leave the image a little softer so some sharpening/unsharp mask and contrast adjustment may be needed to add more punch to the final image.

If you haven't yet tried it then it's worth having ago as even the commonest birds can look quite effective in monochrome.

As with most competitions there are rules to adhere to and these are the ones for this month -

1. Entry to be uploaded between 1st-17th midnight.
2. The bird must be wild and can be of any species.
3. One entry per member.
4. Once uploaded this is classed as an entry and cannot be replaced by another. However you have until the closing date/time of this competition to ensure that your entry meets criteria.
5. The entry must be your own work and not previously submitted in a competition on this site.
6. The birds common name must be given - though please add the scientific too!
7. Image size as defined by the Gallery limits.
8. Entries to be uploaded directly by entrants to the Monthly Photo Competitions Gallery.

30 entries will be selected for addition to the voting booth for members to vote upon. Entries not selected for the voting booth will be moved to the Artwork, Paintings and Graphics forum as will the remainder on completion of voting.

A voting booth will be posted after the 17th.

Comments on entries are permitted.

The 2011 monthly themes can be found here.

Any queries about this months competition please post below.
