Our last photo assignment was RED and we had our highest number of submissions yet. (Perhaps it was all those prizes?)

The winner is Start, by OLDTYPEDOG

Man this image just ran off the page right at me! Okay – pun intended, but wow. It just grabs you. It works on just about every level. The composition, color, exposure, light and impact are all great. If OLDTYPEDOG sends us an e-mail, we’ll get busy sending you all your prizes.

The runner up was Red Bed by WEDDINGSBYROB. It also has great impact and tells a great story. This image was really a coin flip away from winning, but it wasn’t taken as recently as our winner and we always give preference to folks who shoot and post just for the challenge. But in any event, this is a great image and if you’re interested in wedding photography or portraiture – study it.

This week’s assignment – should you decide to accept it – is to photograph DOORS. That’s it – no other guidelines – (other than keep it clean – remember our TWIP Flickr Group rules – kid-safe photos only please.)

You can post ONE image to the new Flickr – the TWIP CONTEST POOL and we’ll do the rest. You can also just use the old tag system if you prefer and tag the image TWIP DOORS.

We’ll pick one or two of the images we really like to talk about and feature on the blog – and if we really like something, we’ll send a free (NFR – Not For Resale copy of Aperture 2.1)

So have at it. You have until May 21st at 5:00 PM – PST to post your images. You can still post images with a theme of DOORS after that – but we won’t consider them for our TWIP Photo Assignment Competition.

If you’d like to chip in, please suggest some future themes you’d like us to explore in the comment section below. Have fun.

UPDATE: The prize craze continues. Our own Fred Johnson was nice enough to throw in a copy of Lightroom and Rich Harrington, co-author of the new Aperture 2.0 book through in a copy of his new book so the prize package is once again, more than $500 value. Go for it folks.

UPDATE UPDATE: We had a typo in the original announcement – the due date is May 21.

  3. Cute little typo you made on the link for the runner up. “weddingsbyrobery”. He must charge way too much.

  7. Mark you can’t go wrong there – but actually it was Fred who first spotted the runner up image – that said a beautiful woman and a door – who knows – could work :)

  9. Yeah, I must remember to submit shots of hot models for photo competitions, as Scott said, he chooses things that “pop”!!

    Both really great shots, must have been hard work to decide!

  11. I am confused about the assignment dates, we were getting about 2 weeks to complete the assignment but on this one we are only getting four days. Is this Correct? we only have until tomorrow to submit.

  17. Thanks guys! Love the show and am proud to have gotten 2nd place :) For what it’s worth… and this may be something I should not disclose in light of the spirit of the contest (shoot the photo for the assignment) but this image is actually well over 10 years old, shot on slide film with probably a Nikon FE2. Just an FYI. Also, back then, I was not shooting for money so I really was just shooting and “posting” for the fun of it :) Thank you all for the nice words.
