Negative space

The topic for this general photography contest is: Negative Space.

Submit a photograph that somehow incorporates the topic. The photograph should clearly be about the topic. Edits of photos are permitted. Creative approaches are welcomed. But contest voters will be asked to consider the topic when making a choice for a winner.

PLEASE READ: this is not a contest on "typical" negative space, like a broad sky behind a silhouetted tree for example. This contest is for "negative space" that is part of a subject but the pixels are NOT Of the subject. Think of a doughnut. The "hole" is negative space, not being part of the doughnut. Or think of a window, the view beyond the window is negative space, not being part of the actual window. One more example, think of a hand gesture showing 'OK". The circular part opening between the thumb and index finger is the negative space. Ok, good, you got it.

No digital art or traditional artwork should be submitted. The contest winner will win half of the prize pool which is based on the number of entries. The second and third place winners will each share the remaining prize pool. The Prize Pool is currently 54.00 member dollars. There are only 2 spots still open. If all open spots are used the prize pool will be 60.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 2 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.

Deadline: Contest Is Closed. Sunday, December 3, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
