Deadline: Nov 14, 2018
Winner is: Judged
Entry: Paid Entry
Entry Fee: $29 for 5 images



Anyone who’s taken a lot of photos has undoubtedly created an image, either intentionally or by accident, which has an element or elements that don’t quite fit, that look out of place. This can be pleasing or disturbing, it can be subtle, like something fleetingly glimpsed in the corner of the eye. Or it can be a jarring and distinct part of the composition –for example the paintings of Magritte or the photos of Man Ray.

Your challenge for this exhibit is to find something in your photos that seems out of place. It doesn’t have to be an in-your-face element; in fact, less obvious can be better, giving the viewer a double take experience or a mystery to contemplate. But both the subtle and the blatant will fit this theme, Surreal, quite well. Imagination is the key.
