iDesign Posted March 9 Report Share Posted March 9 Those of us in warmer climates know them all too well... those sad, sickly Syagrus romanzoffiana that infest our neighborhoods. We wince at the sight of them, frantically searching for something - anything - to switch our gaze to. Well, it's time for an attitude adjustment! The purpose of this post is to GLORIFY the homely yet charming neighborhood Queen Palm, and give them their moment to shine. So go seek out that hideous Queen you've been trying not to look out, take out your camera (ideally when the sun is JUST right), and take your best shot. ---- CONTEST RULES: No healthy Syagrus romanzoffiana There are plenty of other posts for the healthy ones. This post is specifically for the struggling underachievers. It does however need to be ALIVE (though "just barely alive" counts). Give it a Name We want to get to know these charmers on a first-name basis. No major Photoshopping Please DO color-correct, sharpen, or whatever will put your entry in the best light... but no extreme Photoshopping (changing leaf color for example). One Palm per Post This will help with the "voting" process. The Contest HAS NO END DATE We want you to have a reason to look at these sad palms in the neighborhood, and get excited when you see a particularly hideous one. Frame Optional (but encouraged) Here's one option I found that's pretty easy, and doesn't require a subscription - https://www.fotojet.com/apps/?entry=edit It will invite you to upgrade, but you don't need to. In my testing, it seemed to work best to add your TEXT first, then add your frame. ---- TO VOTE: Click the "up arrow" (next to the heart) if you like a particular picture a lot. You can vote for as many photos as you'd like. Because there is no "end date" to the contest, no official "winner" will be declared But you can see which ones are doing best by viewing how many "up arrows" a photo gets. ---- Hoping this will become an EPIC thread of Ugly Queen Palm goodness. Have Fun! 5 Stacey Wright | Graphic Designer Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
