I think I may not be giving enough time for everyone to participate.

I would like your input: Would you like to see Weekly or Monthly Challenges?

I will make my mind up 3/21/10 and we will go from there.

Also I will extend the end date of the current Challenge to 3/21/10 so that more of you can join in.

how about just best shot (whatever kind) of the week...no theme
Blackriver Images 8 years ago
You could consider letting people post at least 1 older shot from their stream. I'm lucky to get a decent shot per week in any motif let alone a specific one and I shoot almost every day... just a thought.

Weekly is nice though. Monthly if you post a style that someone doesn't shoot then they have a whole month to wait for a new topic. Too long IMO.

Maybe a new topic every week but keep them open for 2 full weeks? And allow one shot from the past just to drum up more participation.

She was taking a shot of me (posed lol) and I just happen to snap one for the hell of it.

A monthly challenge would certainly have a bigger take up.

I guess I took one that fits the category finally :P Really just a snapshot though, no artistic value.

Putting this one in as this is the first time I have had a picture that loosely fits the title (be kind this was after 6 pints)

Guess the beer is still affecting me as I didn't see the date this closed :-s

Monthly for the competions is better - I work all week so getting a chance to get a photo and then post process it (not that I actually do that most times) means that I can generally not meet the criteria for the competion

My step-sister hates this one of her but I can't think of anything that fits under the title any better

Let me think. So many memories. by Some-one-else


I've just joined this group, and though this photo doesn't fully comply with the rules (it was taken prior to the challenge being set) I wanted to enter it as it was totally Unplanded and very candid.

Hope thats okay!
