Friendly Friday: Dramatic

Up close in Patagonia (2014)

I love a bit of drama in photos. Though funnily enough, the word drama now reminds me of guest host Manja – she can tell you why.

Anyway, this Friendly Friday’s photo challenge theme is Dramatic.

Show a photo of a dramatic event or scene, or add some drama to an ordinary photo by editing it.

For instance, adding contrast or deepening black points may add some extra effect to a photo. Experiment and have fun! Editing is, of course, also a matter of personal choice and you’re free to enter the challenge au naturel, too.

A dramatic moment I’m unlikely to forget

Getting squirted by a Southern Right Whale and her calf, and seeing them silently slide under our meagre boat are about as dramatic as I’m willing to get while wildlife-spotting. You can read about my experience here, if you’re interested.

Please join our friendly community, everyone is welcome to enter! Here’s how:

  • Create a post responding to the theme
  • Link that post to this one
  • Add a comment at the end of this post, introducing your take on the theme – this makes it easier for others to find you
  • Check out some of the other entries!
  • There is no deadline, your entry doesn’t have to come on Friday! We are in a timeless zone here, Friday is a loose concept

Next week, look out for Manja’s prompt, since Amanda’s still busy settling in her new seaside house (lucky her!).

This is my second last time hosting Friendly Friday, a challenge Amanda and I came up with a year ago and started hosting last January, and my sentiments are dramatically bittersweet. Since I no longer have time to focus on hosting, I’m leaving the challenge in the capable hands of Amanda and Sandy from The Sandy Chronicles, who posts beautiful photos. I’ll still keep on blogging though – I’ll still be around. Perhaps even more so than this year!

But more about that next time. For now, let’s be dramatic!

Happy weekend!
