We have done assignments in the past with emphasis on a singular color. Now I want you to shoot an artistic, wall-worthy image that has at least three vivid colors in it. The more the better.
There are no other restrictions except that your image(s) MUST BE TAKEN DURING THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER, 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 September 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!!!
Be imaginative and go for the unusual shot. After all, thats 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 months 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 Winners Gallery.
I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this assignment!

Camera: Kodak DCS Pro 14n Lens: Nikon AF-S 28-70 f2.8 F8, 1/250, 70mm, Aperture Priority, EV0 I saw a bright, contrast opportunity while trying out my new Kodak toy ( an oldie but goodie ), I also used a Nikon polarizer. I took out some electric lines with Corel Pro XII.
This week-end is the wine harvest festival in Neuchâtel, and a recent tradition makes it that we get a splendid fireworks display on the Saturday. It lasted about 50 minutes and used 4,000 kilos of black powder
D700, 28-70/2.8, ISO 200, f/7.1, 2.8 seconds. The camera on its tripod was in bulb, and I used a remote control to open it as long as I thought necessary. Here, it was quite vivid, I though!
