Default September 2021 - Monthly Themed Photo Competition

September 2021 Monthly Photo Challenge

Subject: Alive


The idea of this months competition is on the face of it simple but at the same time a real challenge. It's completely free form. Your girl(s) can be doing absolutely anything. But the criteria is that the viewer needs to do a double take to work out whether she is actually a doll or not.

You donít need a top of the range girl, hyper realism or for the girl to be humanoid. Some of the most alive girls I know are smart dolls and Elves. And just think what Psion can do with a kimber! The aim is to convince the viewer that at any second she could blink.

I often see pics on here where people really capture the life essence of their girls. Only difference here is that it needs to be a new or unpublished image that non of us have seen it before.

Fingers crossed you will all find this one fun and great practice for life shots. I know that I'm going to have a go even though I can't take part this month

Photo editing is permitted, maybe even encouraged. As much as wanting to feel your girl(s) breathing in the image I want you, the photographer to see her that way as well and after trying to do a shoot with that elusive perfect shot as the goal I think that one or two of you might fall that bit further in love with your subjects.

Iím not going to post other people images as examples as that could influence voting. Here are a few of my own where there is real life in the pictures. Now, Iím no David Bailey so if I can manage it on (rare) occasions Iím pretty sure that you can too (some of you already do). I know there are much better on the site and hopefully by the end of this month there will be even more





















Good luck everyone. Time to start thinking about how you would convince a viewer that your girl is alive (I know that they are but generally only we appreciate that).

Shamus.




The Rules and Times

1. Themes must be in keeping with UKLDF rules and accepted behaviour.

2. Nudity is always permissible, and breasts are always worth showing, although not always required, however, the monthly theme may unfortunately prevent this.

3. Photos must be taken within the month's time frame or earlier if not previously published, and must also adhere to UKLDF rules.

4. One entry per Member, but multiple dolls in the photo are okay.

5. Photo editing is allowed.

6. An entry will not be valid after the closing date/time.

The topic is normally closed after the deadline anyway and the voting poll thread will be opened, so that is not actually going to happen.

7. The monthly winner will choose the next theme.

The winner can either run the topic for the month if they wish, or just pick the next topic and another member will organize it for the month on your behalf.

8. Please, Please, Please, include the name of your doll or dolls and remember to put a title on your photo. This information is required for the poll and remembering the name of every doll on site is near impossible! This will make the build of the voting poll much easier.

9. The Winner/s of the months competition theme can still submit a photo, but it will not be included in the poll at the end.
That way, we all get to take part, but we don't have a winner/s 'winning' situation.

10. Each month's winner will be selected by poll, the poll will be a multi poll vote as follows:

Only ONE voter per household (no doll accounts).
Each voter has THREE votes and NO MORE.
Do not vote for your own entry (the vast majority don't).
The votes will be checked and validated at the end of each challenge before any announcement of the winner.


Subject to Tommo's approval, and due to this months meet I want to give people a few more days for the competition. This could actually include photo's resulting from the meet. As such this month's competition will run until ~ 7:00pm Thursday 29th September 2021.

The next Four days will be open for voting up until 18:00 Sunday 3rd October 2021. (a little before normal time as we want it done and dusted that day).

The winner should be announced pretty much immediatly on the 3rd of October. Due to venturing slightly into October it would be helpful if the front runners could start pondering the next months subject before the winners are announced. [/CENTER]

Cheers Algae I assum you mean the one by the window rather than her not sharing the chocolates with Rhin. Sure I've told you this one before but that picture came as a direct result of playing around with the idea of the effect of light from a window which you had used to great effect with... can't remember whether it was Allie or Pelin... in tennis gear sat at your upstairs window. Although very different to your approach it was non the less inspired by how you used the light to evoke the realism in your pic With Maiko's head she always looks a little melancholy which was perfect for a girl sitting in a room where she really wants to be outside like all the people out there that she watches every day.

Maybe thats the secret to this months competition. Empathy for what is going through their minds and then trying to capture that.

All the best,

Shamus.
