ball camera shadow
This first private entry competition was posted on a forum and closed in June
2009; results near the bottom of the page. Further down the page, there is
advance information on Competition Number 2, an open to all competition
with CASH and prints up for grabs!
The Instructions were simple:
The camera was situated on a tripod, the sun was somewhere behind me, your
mission (should you choose to accept) is to download the pic, use your immense
powers of observation, determine where the centre of the camera shadow was,
place an X at said point and upload your entry to this thread.
Number 6 - ha ha ha, yes, very creative but nevertheless
way off target.
