Monthly Photo Contest for August (Let’s Try This Again)

This was for July but I guess the subject matter was so difficult that nobody wanted to take a try.

Post your comments as to what you think it is and at the end of the month, a winner will be selected for the prize of his or her choice. If nobody gets it correct, the closest guess will be the winner for the month.

Here are the prize options:

Your choice of e-books from these titles

Optical Artistry

Making Beautiful Photography: A Guide for the Novice and the Enthusiast

Pesky Shadows, Pretty Shadows: A Guide To Lighting In Photography

Good luck!

Monthly Photo Contest for July

As I have mentioned in a recent post, I am holding a monthly contest for readers to try to guess the subject of a photo. Check out the specifics here.

This is the first photo. Post your comments as to what you think it is and at the end of the month, a winner will be selected for the prize of his or her choice. If nobody gets it correct, which I am thinking is the most likely scenario, the closest guess will be the winner for the month.

Good luck!
