Re: Photo Challenge 92 - "Includes Tech" Discussion Thread

I might have to re-visit my photo and do an out of camera stack with lots more images to increase the DoF, the without stacking DoF is about half what is shown there...

Anyway, I took it today and learnt a lot about the in body stacking process that I'd only used to play with up to now so am relatively happy! This image is a natural light version, I didn't get a flash illuminated version I liked...

Could bring the end date forward if that is the preference?

We seem to be struggling to get entries. I mused on the last one I judged if we might offer some "prize". I was thinking that we could maybe have a "featured" gallery and the winner might get that for a month. Thoughts? Would need agreeing with Ian of course.

I agree we need something to encourage more participation. Other forums have the same issue though from what I have encountered.

I tend to agree that having a topic last a whole month is a bit long perhaps 2 weeks would be better.

Any encouragement would be good. Gallery sounds a good idea.

This present competition is destined for two months nearly. Always a delay at the start. Maybe the previous months winner should sort this months comp, that would give them a month to sort out a subject.....(ie Decembers winner does Febs comp if I have confused all)

Two months is too long, leading to loss of interest, I think two weeks might be too much, but depends on number of entries of course.

Just my 2p worth

Re: Photo Challenge 92 - "Includes Tech" Discussion Thread

So close this challenge Wednesday 15th. Winner announced Saturday 18th?

I only put the original end date on this as March as I thought things had got out of kilter. Sorry if that was a bad thing.

Don't apologise, you did what you thought was best. Maybe I should apologise for causing a kerfuffle.

Being retired I look forward to these diversions, and like to have something to strive towards. You lot who still work have much more important things to go for.... Sorry....

Anyway, I hope the discussion will somehow increase the entries....
