  • Classic Thread Competition: REALLY Bad Landscapes

    Just a bit of fun, leading on from this thread.

    Let's see who can produce not only the most badly composed landscape, but also the most boring. Oh, and it also needs a pretentious and meaningless caption to give it creedence, along the lines of

    I would post an example of what I have in mind but I will have to shoot specifically because I don't have anything nearly bad enough!

    Happy shooting!

    I took this one as a record shot when reporting some fly tipping to the local council...however, I now think I seriously underestimated it...

      I thought I'd already won that with my Everywhere Trees photo earlier this week!

              Agree with Janet.
              That's the A93 a couple of miles north of the Spittal of Glenshee looking towards the Devil's Elbow.
              Far too interesting. Disqualified immediately.

              There are also the pretentious rubbish things in the BJP which are given unjustified credence as art.

                ...as my previous entry has recently been sold for an undisclosed sum to a discerning art lover, I will reluctantly have to withdraw it and replace with another..

                Hours of soul searching and reaching deep into my inner self produced this, my master work..the lines leading the viewer deep along the road into the future (well, the trip to my local supermarket this morning...)

                  I the wake of previous "artists", but taking it one step further; imagin please, the following is on a card, presented in place of an actual image...

                  Must go and take a close up picture of the bottom of a bird cage...

                    Will comment in more detail later, but am off out in a minute to try to come up with something really bad.

                      Oh dear, I thought I remembered one which I'd thought was the dog's danglies when I took it, and even entered it into to local horticultural show. Here it is. If it's not boring enough I'm the world's worst deleter and I take lots and lots and lots of rubbish so I'm sure I could find something. It's a good opportunity for a clearout anyway.

                        Oh, I forgot the pretentious twaddle didn't I. I'll call it the Azure Horizon. The blue moods match the northerly latitudes of the mind, where Boreas blows in faint whispers.
