!!*Photography* Challenge Group!! Happy Holidays :-)

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

A Bouquet for Mum (and other women we love and respect)

This challenge closed over 7 years ago.

The Challenge

March is just around the corner, and in some parts of the world one of the days is dedicated to mothers and women in general (as mothers, sisters, teachers, grandmothers, and generally as role-models for the younger generation). It is customary to bring them flowers on this occasion, but unlike Valentine’s Day roses, the flowers for Mother’s Day or Women’s Day are all colours, offered in bunches, usually of early spring flowers (from snowdrops to daffodils, NOT callas or lilies).
So, let’s see pictures of early spring bouquets (but NOT bride’s ones), for example:

  1. offered to someone (so ‘in someone’s hands’);
  2. in a flower shop (so ‘ready to be bought and offered’);
  3. in a vase (so ‘received’)

Judging / Voting Criteria

Ladies: Vote for the bouquet you’d like to receive
Gentlemen: Vote for the one you’d pick to offer

Rewards & Prizes

Winner and next 5 will be featured

Additional Information

For this challenge, I will not accept the following:

  1. flower extreme macros (or any other macros) – I want to see a few whole flowers
  2. single flowers (the minimum number is 3 in a bunch, and sorry, that doesn’t mean 3 single flowers each in a little vase) – the picture opposite is as close and as few as will be allowed
  3. monotone pictures – this is a celebration of Spring as much as a celebration of women, and we need lots of colour after the dull days of winter
    Last but not least: your challenge entry must belong to the group (especially if you want it featured :-)). You may, of course, add other pictures to the group while you’re at it, as long as they fit the active challenges
