The Elements – Water- PhoozL

The Elements – Water

THIS WEEK’S PHOTO CONTEST THEME: ‘The Elements: Water’
Submit up to three (3) images relating to or displaying the essence of the theme. Continuing our series of the four classic “elements”: Earth, Water, Air, and Fire… this week is Part II: Water. The judge will be looking for images that interpret the theme in interesting and artistic ways. For example, for “Water” he’s not just looking for pictures of the liquid, but what Water means in a general, even symbolic, sense. It could be about the unknown or the unconscious mind; or about change; or purity or cleansing. What does “Water” mean to you? Please consider Titling your images to reflect your concepts. For additional ideas on all the Elements, see here: Wikipedia – Classic Element. And of course, the normal judging criteria of: originality and creativity, photo technique and/or quality, and overall artistic merit all still apply.


CONTEST JUDGE: Tracy Valleau has been photographing for 50 years. His work has been published in “Outdoor Photographer,” “Panorama,” “Best of California,” “Windows of the World” (among others), and has been the subject of several one-man shows. Displays and exhibitions include the Center for Photographic Arts and The Monterey Arts Council at the Sunset Center; the MPC Art Gallery; and the Pacific Grove Art Center and many others. He is a past instructor at Academy of Art University, San Francisco, and he is a member of The Imagemakers. His next solo show is in California, July 19 – August 29.
