Fifty's Photo Theme: Opposites
image header by FiftyQuid
We all know how fun Fifty's Photo Themes have been, and due to him being very busy lately, I have decided to fill in. In honor of his creating this idea the format will remain the same. The rules have not changed and anyone is welcome to participate!
Special thanks goes out to FiftyQuid and best wishes to him as he expands his family!
Photo Theme: Opposites
Now since I have the ability to create the theme for this I thought we might try something a little bit different. Instead of a specific type of item name being provided for you to seek out and take creative pictures of, we will be using a concept this time. This will allow a bit more room to be creative in your photo. The concept for this theme will simply be "Opposites."
With this concept it will be up to your creative mind to consider what you want to photograph. Somewhere there simply needs to be some form of opposites represented by the photo or photos. Anything related to opposites that can be captured in a photograph should be considered. I would like each person to submit no more than 2 photos (per each of your entries) but try to fit the concept into one image if possible.
Add-on Game: Guess the Title
Another fun add-on to this photo theme will involve the title of the image. Many of us forget that the title of the work is a part of the artist's creativity and titles often help express what the artist is attempting to convey in the image. This time around I would also like to request that everyone submit a title to their image. The "title" should be realistically related in some way and use as few words as possible. In other words, a "title" and not a sentence describing the photo!
Here is how the add-on fun will work. Everyone submitting a photo should also submit their title to me by PM. Do NOT post the title in the thread. This will allow each of you to guess at the other submitted image titles here in the thread after each submitted entry. I will include these guesses at the title beneath the person's submitted image. Later, I will reveal all the real titles (in a spoiler bar) so we can see how the guessing went compared to the artist's real title. Please try to include your title guesses in as few posts as possible so as not to clutter the thread.
Thanks and enjoy the theme and title guessing game!
A Simple Example:
My entry is listed as the first one and clearly shows two light bulbs. Maybe I still have light bulbs on the brain from the "bright idea" redesign a couple weeks ago, but I'm breaking out the bulbs again. In this submission one might at first notice that one bulb is lit and the other is not. This may have you thinking the simple solution to a name guess might have something to do with light and dark (two opposites displayed in the picture). Well don't guess this because I already entered it as an example guess AND I'm going to tell you right now that this title guess would be wrong. Light and dark is not the title or necessarily the artistic intention of the photo. I'm crafty enough to be more creative than that! So knowing this...what is your guess?
Remember to please reply in this thread if you wish to sign-up or have questions. My PM box fills up rather fast so please only use the PM for title submissions.
Who Can Enter/Event Length
Entries are open to all forum users and the time limit we are looking at for entry and discussion is approximately two weeks. Obviously the sooner you get your entry in the longer we will have to discuss your picture so please think about giving us some time to make guesses at the title. Also, invite anyone that may be interested to participate.
Title Guess Entries
Entries for title guesses are going to be listed beneath the photos as they come in. It won't be first come first serve and you can feel free to guess the same as another. Please try to group your title guesses in as few posts as possible so as to keep this thread easier to read. Thanks.
[ ] = Signed up but nothing yet submitted.

Looks great KD. Nice work. I love what you've done with it, adding a concept and title is a great way to grow this overall thread.
Would you be able to provide an example for the theme? I think I know what you want, but an example would help clarify it for me.
Thanks for taking over in my absence.

Hey Krypt. Got your message and sure, I'd like to take part in this. Was looking forward to another photo theme to happen (now's the perfect time). As Fifty has said, I think I know what you mean, but just to be sure I understand completely, a bit of more info or an example even would help. I mean, I can almost assume it's like putting two of the same item beside each other (being at opposite ends) and photographing it (while making it not so obvious on what it actually is) or whatever else (ying/yang style feature even?) D:

If the deadline is lenient enough, I'll be glad to participate. Like the others, I would like to see an example unless the theme is supposed to be vague to let the users' creativity flow.
Anyway, cheers to KD for taking the lead of Fifty's event.

Sounds like a good idea, but I won't be participating. I don't really have any sort of camera right now...
Thanks to RED_REBEL44 for the awesome sig.
