Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

I guess I'm dithering somewhat in my view on time restricted comps. I said some time back that they were OK and then yesterday I complained that it would be too restrictive. So, apologies for coming over all Theresa May-like!

Time-restricted entries do challenge us to go out and shoot - which is a good thing. OTOH, sometimes time can work against us and it might mean we don't get a chance to enter. I think that if we were a more active forum then time-restricted entries would be the way to go. However, we clearly struggle to get a good number of entries so casting the net wider is probably the best thing.

The current compromise of some months being restricted but the rest not is OK I think as a means of testing the waters. The Christmas entry list may have been short, but then again it's a time of year when many have lots of other things on our plates so it could be that. I'd be tempted to see how this March's comp goes in terms of entries before making any changes.
