The last 'begging for help' journal and... If you remember my last journals you know that I'm participating in a calendar photo contest in Kellenhusen, the village where we spent our summer holidays 2012. I told you that I took so many photos last year that I decided to submit one photo each month until autumn. A big "thank you" to all of you who voted for my picutres in the last months! (In October I reached place #5, to have the chance of being chosen as a calendar motif you have to be among the top 3) I think that this month once again my photo has no big chance to rank at the top because some photographers are obviously members of big internet communities (you know what I mean) and begged all their "friends" to vote for their photos. Anyway, if you don't mind to play that voting-game one last time and if you want to support me, the voting period goes until November 30, and everyone is allowed to vote. Voting is quite easy:
July's top submissionsFinally I've been able to do another feature of some the best submissions from the last month. This time I made a selection form the pictures posted on July. I hope you like them and please give the artists some views and faves!!

Through The Lens #13 ~ Mastering CompositionArguably the most important challenge that faces every artist is that of mastering composition. Artists spend their entire life experimenting with different compositional tools in order to achieve desired effects. Throughout the academic history of art various books and theories have been written about principles and elements of design. The following list is not comprehensive and may vary from other lists that are out there, but I attempted to compile the most useful list of compositional ideas that I could with photographic examples of each of the ideas. Sometimes as artist we can spend so much time on technique and subject matter, that the basic composition of the piece we are trying to create gets overlooked. These powerful compositional tools not only help us to create more cohesive and complex art but they also help us to speak about art. Using the universal language of design, we can communicate with other artist in a seamless and direct way. My hope with this article is th

September's TOP Subs of Unframed-Nature and NEWS! First, a special thank you to all of you for your utmost patience and understanding. As some of you may have realized, I was away for the first 1/3 of October, -for good and planned reasons, though- but then I have had a challenging time trying to return both to my "regular life" as well as to my "life" here on dA, for a couple personal reasons.
