I think we are short of macros, and of full-face close-up portraits.

I've looked for booze, glass and the moon and invited some of each, there are a few faces to come I hope.

I think we are short of business stuff - a picture which would fill a thousand ferries, a magazine cover. The business card face now added is a good example of what I mean as well as of what it is.

Day 18, Business Card Concept


What else are we short of?

I'd say we could do with a sunset or two.

I´m not scenery (or sunset), macros ... but some portrait I can show.

Look for me...

Selfportrait with new lens have to be!

Happy New Year my flickr friends!

Cold days...

Sadness

If you see a friend without a smile, give him one of yours.

Can I leave that to the group, I like several of those, some in particualr, but I'd like a group dynamic to emerge.

I've intended to leave the limit of 5 per user, ever, up for the moment, and I think while members are joining 3 or if it is a new type of picture for the group, 4 of those would be enough for the first month. As a _soft_ rule, a guideline rather something that ties our hands if there is a general mood in favour of a picture being added regardless.

maybe some selfportrait but different way

There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds!

Square pictures. We are short of square pictures.



I like the one www.flickr.com/photos/zuzananz/3212366116/ above, not that it is square.

just now notice only 5 shots/per user ever?for the moment?
...I think it will "kill" this group!
try another limits this one is not so good!

I think the essence of the group is selection, so yes, in a while an increase may be indicated, but I'd hold to it for the moment.

The thing to do with a sixth picture is to decide if it is better - as a photo, or at illustrating some particular sort of photo that has been processed - than any of the previous 5 - if it is then replace one. If not, then I don't think we'll be harmed by a wait for it.

I'd rather have 100 people with 500 photos than 50 with 500.

There is a monochrome group I'm in that keeps a total content of only 30 images. The result is that the whole group can be seen on one page as thumbnails. I think that is a level of selection beyond anything we need, but I do think selection or at least restraint, is importnat in order to show a visitor what can be done without them having to go through vast numbers of images.

I'd be happy with say 2 images illustrating each distinct thing - type of photo, treatment with the gimp, person's work or whatever - actually.

Members.
I think we need another tranche of members.

Whose work - that is processed in the gimp - do you admire?

Pointers, please.

Adrian, I understand what you mean...

But I can´t decide whicH one of my shot is worth to be here.

For today I have this....

I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.

I will agree with your decision but I still think 1shot per day and after moderator checking is better.

It is lovely ...
Flickr has so many groups, it would be a pity to use them all for the same things.
