Q1 2024 Photo Challenge
The member’s Quarterly Photo Challenge runs from January 1 to March 31, 2024.
The new Q1 2024 Member's Challenge topic is Texture or Patterns.
Capture anything that includes texture or a pattern. You can photograph anything that has texture or pattern, or you can overlay textures in post-processing to create a whole new work of art.
The photos need to be taken between Jan 1 and Mar 31, 2024
Send me (Jimmsp AT outlook.com) up to 3 photos taken during the quarter.
Remember, any post processing is allowed. If you add elements from another photo (like sky replacement) those elements must have been photographed by you within the quarter.
So this is a great excuse to get out and shoot.
Have fun & stay safe,
Topics for the next challenges are also listed here. Submit all photos to jimmsp AT outlook.com
