*Official* BimmerPost Photo Contest #50: "Missing Person"

Official BimmerPost Photo Contest #50 - Missing Person



Theme: Missing Person - Somebody was just here. What were they doing? Relaxing, reading, fighting, sleeping, eating, causing destruction? Capture the vacated scene. These are just some examples of what someone might photograph. Use your creativity and interpret the theme as you wish. If necessary, please include a brief description.

The only guideline in this contest is that whoever was doing whatever in your photo should no longer be present. Make sense? So, whoever was reading in their favorite chair and left their book and eyeglasses on the end table should no longer be in the scene.

Important Dates: Entries must be submitted no later than Wednesday, February 22nd, at 11:59pm PST. Voting begins the following day.

RULES:

1. Any interpretation of the theme that falls within Bimmerpost.com rules is welcome.
2. You must be the person that took the photo. Previous photos are acceptable as long as you are the one that captured the image.
3. One submission per contest, and you cannot resubmit a photo that you've submitted before in a previous contest.
4. Images must be no larger than 1024 px in any direction. Links to larger images are allowed but you must have one that is under 1024 px for the poll.
5. All contestants must host their own pictures (which includes hosting them on Bimmerpost).
6. All images must have a title.
7. While post processing in Photoshop is allowed, adding or removing parts of the picture is not. In the event a photo is suspected to be "photo-chopped," the contestant will be asked to provide the original picture.

If that's your interpretation, then, by all means. Just make sure the depositor is no longer in the scene.

Just needling the Professor. I figure he could use the distraction, what with all those half-naked women around. That must get old.

OK, I'll start. This is just a snapshot, but I like the colors of the flowers.

Not sure I'm liking the 1024 size, it requires looking around at the picture to find details rather then just viewing the picture as a whole.

Nice shot Spanner, love the blooms. I like how the bench is in the right 3rd of the shot like you were taking a shot of someone who isn't there.

It doesn't have to be 1024px... it just can't exceed that limit.

Thanks for the compliments, but I assure you it was more luck than skill.

The deadline is a little soon, eh?

I have a great idea, just not what I need to do it.... Might have to come up with something else.
