Just curious really.
There might have been a comma between Christmas, and Time, same with Bridges.

No link, other than a time limit. The subject is not necessarily relevant, but moving towards encouraging us to go and photo some "fresh" images.

If there is support we could change the subject to March.......

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Reminder that the Harvest Photo Challenge ends this coming Tuesday 31st October.

As has been said, Harvest does not need a bale of hay or straw. Imagination will work well here.................

And also a reminder that the November Challenge will be shortly with us.........Autumnal and seasonal Mists

Good shooting...............

Looking through this thread, there are quite a few suggestions for subjects, namely;

Autumn Mists
Wonder of Nature
Bridges
Weird and Whacky
Mobile phone pictures
Minimalism
Dressed for the cold
+
Harvest Time
Seasonal cheer
Last two from me.

The mobile phones pictures did include any camera, not sure if that's what we are about;...............thoughts please.

My suggestion is the following order;

October...........Harvest Time
November.......Autumn Mists
December........Seasonal Greeting

January...........Weird and Wacky
February..........Minimalism
March..............Bridges.

That's 6 months worth, enough for now.

But lets have any suggestions, timings and thoughts for the spring and summer (long time away I know).

I propose to keep the same format as John, which includes; 1 (one) "Like" vote (Please note that!) to be made between the 1st and 14th of the following month; A monthly winner table to be made up, and perhaps some sort of annual award or commendation.....(yeah).

Any further suggestions welcome.

Keep it in the spirit of our hobby, its just fun, any appropriate humour will be very much appreciated............

Mark J
Are we all happy for these next three monthly challenges?

After the Christmas Theme, again any thoughts about the timed photographs. Only 8 entries so wonder if that restriction was good or not.

Also looking for another 3 subjects to make up a six months worth of challenges.

All feedback appreciated................(ducking now)

Mark - Nothing wrong with the timed idea. I think low response was due to December probably being the most time pressured, and therefore least likely month, to be able to get out and take a special pic.
Happy New Year

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

How about a time limit to within 18 months? Some of us may not have the luxury to find something with the 30 days.

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Seems to me we need more 'PEOPLE' themes !! And I don't include 'selfies' in that.

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Ok will answer that later, but first wonder if the PC Environment has made us all wary of, not snapping people, but showing the results in a 'semi-public' forum. You have to admit that a count of pics here would rank (INPO), Landscape, Buildings, Seascape, Abstract, Flora, Fauna, Inanimate bits & Pieces, et al.


Not so long ago that was different.
