Please read the Rules and Objectives before you submit a photo for this Assignment.

The February Assignment is “Creative Cropping”.

While you are not be restricted on the subject of your image, for the February assignment, you must creatively crop it. Creative cropping can add effect to your image. Indeed, consider searching the term "creative cropping" and you'll get all sorts of ideas.

PLEASE READ THIS VERY IMPORTANT REQUIREMENT – FOR EACH IMAGE YOU SUBMIT, YOU MUST ALSO INCLUDE THE ORIGINAL UNCROPPED VERSION! The cropped version will be what is considered for the poll at the end of the month, but including the uncropped version will provide insight to your creativity!! Feel free to also include an explanation of the "method to your madness" - that will be a benefit to all.

There are no other restrictions except that your image(s) MUST BE TAKEN DURING THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY, 2013. I have noticed that some have used archived photos to satisfy an assignment (i.e. photos NOT taken during the month of the assignment). Using images taken prior to February of 2013 is NOT PERMITTED and will be deleted. Please honor the rules of the assignment.

As always, I emphasize “artistic”. Strive to be different; let your artistic juices flow when composing your image. Is the image you post for this assignment one you would be willing to frame and hang on your wall?? Please keep in mind that images will be selected based on image quality, subject matter, relevance to the assignment, and creativity just to name a few.

Also, over the course of the month, you may post no more than four (4) images. I want you to be discriminating in the selection of images you post for this assignment – PLEASE POST ONLY YOUR BEST SHOTS!!!

Also, please:

• Be imaginative and go for the unusual shot. After all, that’s what makes this fun!!!
• Do not use a shot in your archive – the whole point of this exercise is that it is an assignment.
• Submit only artistic shots. Naturally, we want to see your very best work with regard to subject matter and composition - translation – snapshots are not permitted.
• Include shooting data, and ideally, please include your thinking behind the scene – what were you trying/hoping to capture, and did you succeed?

As discussed here, the top five images will be selected by the previous month’s winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image with be added to our new Monthly Challenge Winner’s Gallery.

I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this assignment!

Good luck!!!
