Life is full of magic moments which words often fail to describe but pictures can fortunately save. That way we can re-live their bliss and atmosphere. For the “Magic moments” assignment, we want to see the excitement and the emotion of unforgettable life instants as you share images of experiences and events which rendered you or other people completely happy.



Show us the special days, minutes or seconds which lifted your spirits, made you feel excited or serene, swept you off your feet or simply answered lifelong questions. Focus on life changing experiences (the graduation day, the birth of your child, your daughter’s wedding) or simple personal accomplishment (the first bike ride on your own, crossing the finish line after an exhausting marathon). Include any mystical experience that brings you the inner peace and perfect equilibrium we all look for. The elation of a spontaneous walk with your soul mate under the moonlight, the satisfaction of reaching a mountain top to admire the view, the thrill of first seeing the pyramids are things you’ll remember forever. Don’t forget that the magic is always in the eyes of the beholder. Any event, minor or major, private or public can be your source of inspiration. Record and reveal the magic behind simple gestures and actions, capture the decisive moments of daily life, turn the ordinary into extraordinary, the insignificant into meaningful. If it's simple, don't forget the decisive moment. Think Bresson's famous Gare Saint Lazare photo.



Most magical images will bring a bit of magic in the winners’ lives as they will receive $300 (first place), $200 (second place) and $100 (third place) to spend for their own magic moments. The winners will also receive our Dreamstime branded T-shirts for a magical look.



Let the magic begin!

What an interesting assignment. Tons of room for creativity here. I can't wait to see the image gallery (and hopefully have one of my own accepted as well).

My first thought was - extremely broad subject. My guess is that there will be a lot of refused images for this assignment. From admin's proposed ideas and suggestions one can draw the conclusion that the task is only limited to capturing human's excitement/emotions. A wildlife photographer, for instance, can see a magical spark between two birds. The subject is also quite similar to some past assignments and I suppose we'll see some of these already well-covered concepts. Just thinking out loud.. Good luck to all!

Grisho, you can't know until you try. Any magic moment could get accepted, if it's really captured in a special way. Those suggestions are just some ideas for you to start with. Just upload those awsome pictures and we'll search for the magic moment in them :)

Great theme, indeed!.. if only we had cameras handy/ready for the most magic moments in our lives :) what's more, the camera would most definitely spoil those otherwise unforgettable instants of happiness... I wonder if it's just me, or? 8-) my guess is, most often we are merely trying to re-play desperate for the deja-vu effect, and then the camera may click in time...

Thinking pragmatically, Grisho is probably right...

Maybe, a set of main keywords would be helpful to narrow the focus, so to say, and reduce the number of potential refusals :)

Hello,

I would like to know how to upload existing in my portfolio images:

   First wedding toast   

   Bond together   

   Big day   

to the assigments this month? When I try to press continue it shows only unfinished files of mine. Any advice how to do it, I would be very grateful :)

Thanks in advance,

Marcin :)

First you have to disable these files from your previous uploads, and then re-upload these files to submit in assignment.
