    January 2018 Theme: "Graffiti"

    Happy New Year! The them for the first monthly assignment of 2018 is "Graffiti". Graffiti is something that has existed for centuries. Some is done legally and some has been done illegally, but often the results are spectacular. Ever wonder what Michelangelo would have created with a can of spray paint? Have fun as you find this "Art" around your town.

    How you capture the image it is up to you. The idea is to challenge yourself to think outside of the box. Set it up, stage it, enhance it in post-processing, or just get lucky. Your creativity is limited only by your imagination.

    1. Any photo submitted for a monthly assignment must be taken using a mirrorless camera as defined in this thread!

    2. All submissions must be taken during the month specified in the assignment thread and taken by YOU! (Please ensure that EXIF is either posted with the photo or hold yourself to the honor system and add the minimum EXIF data of the Camera used and the date the photo was taken to your post.)

    3. Obviously, for this challenge, your photo must portray graffiti in some manner. Other than that, it's all up to your interpretation of the theme. Any photo will be accepted, SOOC or edited, doesn't matter.

    4. Photos must be posted in this thread to be considered. Links to photos will not be considered an entry.

    5. Only THREE entries per member for each assignment. Please post entries separately (1 photo per post) and number the entry.

    6. Entries will be judged by the number of likes received.

    7. The top 5 shots will be displayed in a separate thread and will be displayed in no particular order.

    8. This is intended to be a FUN challenge. No critiques unless specifically asked. Also, please limit posts to just photos and brief descriptions/titles. Any comments/discussion should occur elsewhere.

    Please note: NO CASH OR PRIZES will be awarded for this Monthly Assignment outside of bragging rights. :) Have fun and get shooting!!

    Thanks Mike. I will try to resize the next time. I did change my workflow and forgot to downsize the images. Although I compressed them to get a smaller file size, the image was probably too large... Sorry again.
