Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

How about 'Minimalism' as a future theme?

I'm keen to try this myself, and to see what others can produce.

Here's a taster: https://photography.tutsplus.com/art...hy--photo-3914

That's a great idea, Steve, and there are some fantastic examples in the link you provided.

Out of respect to John, I agree we should give September a miss, and look to October.

What is the theme?

The contest was originally started by Admin ( John ) who did an excellent job. As we still have 2 active Administrators surely either Graham or Ian can pick up the baton and continue what seems to be a very popular, well supported idea.

It's not as though the Admins. are rushed off their feet on this very calm polite well behaved Forum

Perhaps the key thing is what is actually involved. It's all right for us lot to sit around 'drinking whisky and rye', but it's obvious that Admin access is needed to control all sorts of things. Even for a simple competition.

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Whisky and Rye, that's a song is it not (a line in one anyway!)

Is access behind the scenes needed? Just a count I would have thought.

We just need a respected member to do the biz I would have thought. If no Senior member is up for it, one of us might be able to run it. A vote perhaps..........
