    Alrighty, here is our first Chrons photo challenge! :) You may post up to *2* photos in this thread for the challenge and there will be a vote at the end of the month for the best/favorite photo of the month. You may post any and all photos you take for this challenge in the Photos of the Day thread, but remember to post your 2 favorite here. So, seeing as this is our first photo challenge, I decided to start with a somewhat easy and broad theme. This month's theme is......


    *BLUE*


    Any photos you post must in some way, shape, or form contain the color Blue. There are of course many ways you can interpret and include Blue in your photos. Anyone and everyone is welcome to post, and you can use any camera you have, be it DSLR, point and shoot, camera phone, scanned images, etc. I have included a few photos that I found on the internet (I am in no way claiming that I took these shots) just to give some ideas.

    Have fun! :)

    Okay, so I realized that, while I'm not a photographer, I did do a photo-manip/digital painting piece a few years ago for an old band I was involved with. Here's one of the CD covers I did...

    Nice. It looks like a sort of futuristic fortress from that angle.


    Oh, and you're welcome. ;) :)

    Really like the building one, Aniri. I'm not sure if the eye one is allowed, but I like it as well. Did you do it?

    I'm just not sure about digital manipulation. But either way, it's brill.

    I like the photograph of the building Aniri :)

    Mine is not a very good photo but it does show why the mountains are called the Blue Mountains...

    Not sure you can get away from digital manipulation. Just flicked through this months Practical Photography and there are two articles on photo manipulation and another article which has two boxouts about photo manipulation as well. Seems manipulation of photos is become a default part of the photo process, now that the photos start of digital. Not sure if I like that particular move, since, as a rule, I hate all art programs.:D

    Yes, just a 'touch' Redtail. Lovely shot! Almost makes me wish I lived on a coastline to take great photos of waves and shores. ;)
