March Contest: Abstract and Surreal

Tue Mar 1, 2016, 5:34 PM
Hello, CRPhotography members!

I'm on fire!

I'm very glad to present to all of you
the photography category 
that will be spotlighted during the month, and for this third month of 2016, which will be: 
Abstract and Surreal.

If you entered February's contest, be aware that the winners will be
announced in the middle of March!
(and thx all for your participation! :))

Heart So... What's the theme?

  • Abstract and Surreal, as in DeviantArt's photo category. Abstract photographs seek to obscure the actual subject, while surreal photographs place the subject in an other-worldly context. So, abstract photographs are mostly photos of objects and structures of which you often can't tell exactly what it actually is. Surreal photography often plays with the light and/or apparently metaphysical motives. Abstraction or surreality is not given through photo manipulation.
  • The different categories you can apply for in this contest for this category are:
    Bullet; BlueAbstract,
                    Bullet; BlueSurreal.
                    
  • Some examples are:
The Old Man and the Sea by Hengki24 The Oracle by Einsilbig 

Fire Masamune by MD-Arts the city lights by vanerich Explosion by JohnKyo
smoke Trails by newcastlemale


  • Check out the group's gallery and get inspired: this gallery countains very inspiring abstract and surreal shotsLove

:iconkizukitamura:
How would you explain the concept of abstraction/surrealism to someone who has never heard of it before?
Surrealism refers to certain definite codes rooted in psychoanalysis, philosophy etc. and favours associative, non-logical processes like in dreams or automatic writing. Whereas abstraction is rather a personal vision of reality at a given time. In photography, abstraction often leads to a poetic approach, but also gives the opportunity of experimenting.

 What inspires you to use the concept of abstraction/surrealism for your artwork?
 
As a matter of fact, I work rather with abstraction than with surrealism. In my eyes, surrealism is nowadays a bit outdated, but I am still very fond of Breton, Magritte and others, who transformed the artistic standards of their time.
In my work I do not aim at abstraction for abstractio

Hello, I tried to submit a deviation to the contest, but I don't see the typical pending text under 'notifications'. That's why I'm wondering if something went wrong.

If I try again I get the message "An error occurred during submission of Fluid harp. - Submission would exceed the per-folder limit of 1 deviation every 30 days." So I think I maybe worked.

The folder won't accept my contest entry because it would exceed my limit of one per month.
If I have to wait two more weeks to enter, I will forget.
