FRAMES: Photo Challenge #45: Fall

Okay I know it’s supposed to be 70 degrees tomorrow but I see a few of those trees changing out there so I’m thinking we better hurry up and make this next photo challenge Fall themed.

Therefore, this week’s photo challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to show us your best photo of “Fall ”. It can be of anything you feel fits into that theme and as usual “out of the box” thinking is always encouraged.

Don’t forget we ENCOURAGE you to shoot the challenge during the week(s) that it is assigned but of course we will accept older entries.

DEADLINE is October 14th. (that gives you lots of time to find that perfect fall photo but I will extend the deadline if it seems Fall has yet to hit its peak by that date. Don’t forget that your name must be on your photo entry somewhere so I can credit you properly.

Here are a few shots from our archive to get you thinking about the splendor that is fall:

***To recap: Every week we will post a new photography “challenge” to help build on all of our current photography skills and to encourage everyone to get out and get shooting (cameras not guns). While we encourage you to shoot the challenge in the week that it is assigned, we will however accept entries taken prior to the challenge assignment date.

When you’ve got your favorite shot, login to the Kitsap Sun Your Media Site (if you don’t already have a login, you can quickly set it one up) or click the “Kitsap Frames Photo Challenge Entries” button over there on the right side of the page and upload your image to the Kitsap Frames Photo Challenge Channel (the channels run along the left hand side of the page, again if you can’t seem to get it into the channel just upload it normally and send me an email and we’ll move it).
