This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

Foxgloves

This challenge closed over 4 years ago.

The Challenge

I don’t recognise many flowers but I DO recognise foxgloves. What strikes me is how many different types there seem to me, the example photo from VIC, Australia for example was of a foxglove plant infinitely larger than any other I have seen.

Anyway this from Wkipedia Digitalis is a genus of about 20 species of herbaceous perennials, shrubs, and biennials commonly called foxgloves

  1. Just foxgloves
  2. ABSOLUTELY NO bugs/insects be it bees butterflies or anything else that has 0-100 legs/wings.
  3. NOT foxes
  4. If there are any other flowers at all in the shot they MUST be background or better still, bokeh style… would rather there are just foxgloves in the shot.
  5. Did I say not foxes? and NO bugs/insects, flying or otherwise. Thanks.

New work please – we can check the old challenges, you know :-)

As close to straight out of the camera as possible please. No composites at all. No superimposed images. This is the photography challenge group NOT the PhotoShop challenge group. Thanks!

WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!


Please:

  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids, snakes or butterflies – thank you!
  2. also, nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  3. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with added writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)

Judging / Voting Criteria
