March’s Assignment – Opposites Attract

yin-yang March is a transitional month in terms of climate where the opposing forces of wind, rain, snow and sleet do battle with the warming northern hemisphere temperatures caused by the earth’s shifting axis toward the sun. Eventually spring wins out helping to pave the wave toward summer, but the contrasting elements of bluster versus blister is sure evident this time of year. So in March, we’ll ask you to show us the world of contrast with Opposites Attract.

How you choose to do so is entirely up to you. Is it in a single image of harsh shadows being cast by bright sunlight? Is it in an image of the peaceful moment of a sleeping white cat on the back of a docile black lab? Or is it a series of juxtaposing images illustrating the idea of opposites? Two images; one taken at night and one at day, perhaps. How creative can your mind wander when it comes to showing us the connected opposites that can’t exist without one another. Let the yin and yang of your visual self come out to play.

All images should be:

• jpeg format
• 72 ppi
• 600 pixels on the longest side
• If possible, we’d love it if the images you submit have your name in the file name and include a watermark (that’s the “© John Doe” at the bottom of the pic). Please submit three to five images.
