Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

I hope Zuiko has his beady eyes on this, and apologies to him in advance. But OK OK OK!
[SIZE=3]There are ofcourse some conditionsSIZE]
I un-democratically will choose the subjects (from suggestions of course [which could include mine]).
I can haveup to three ‘Likes’, should I feel there is stuff of equal merit.
The voting hasto be completed by the 6th of the month following the end of thecompetition. No point in dragging out the agony.
Hope that’s allok..
So Octoberis as Graham’s good suggestion ‘Dressedfor the Cold’.
Of coursethere has to be at least a quorum of six ‘Likes’ to approve this Post.
If approved I guess I will have to learn how to create a Thread…

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Quite so. We will await a volunteer. It was only your goading John that pushed me into sending that Post

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Bit confused by your posts here John, you seemed to be encouraging ISO, then not...........

We do need to have a "judge" or "administrator" for this monthly competition, and as far as I can assess, ISO is good for that. I don't know him personally, so can only make a judgement from his postings here.

I do NOT want top rock the boat here, and do NOT want to cause any friction, you are also a valued member of the forum, and I enjoy your posts and photos..........

I would have thought admin should have the last word here.............

WTF John, something has gone wrong somewhere........

As said your contributions are valued, we need all the sensible (and otherwise) contributions that we can get here.

Just hope we can all go forward together whatever has occurred,,,,,,,,,,

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

John (Zuiko) has, for very good reasons, had to step back from overseeing the challenges. I am sorry that this means there is currently nobody to direct things. I fear we have become too reliant on John!

If anybody would like to volunteer to sort things out, please contact me via PM.

Once again, I'm sorry for the discontinuity - hopefully we'll get this back up and running as soon as possible.

Ian

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Gordon Bennett, suddenly gone very quiet here..............

Not sure what qualifications the volunteer will need, I would have thought they should have been on the Oly Forum for some time, which rules me out!!

If no-one else volunteers, I am only too happy to do the biz,..

Retired, good internet, sense of humour, and/but won't be offended if Iso, or other longer serving members stand up for the job..............

Come on guys............

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Hi,

I am very pleased to be able to be able to take on this mantle. I have plenty of time to do the biz, and have Walti (Paul) to help when needed.

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 Whacky
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

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

One clarification question - might have been asked already.

Does the submitted photo have to be taken in the month in question or can it be from anytime ?

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Personally I am not too bothered when the photo was taken, but will take your thoughts about it. I think the subjects are reasonably time relevant, so I suppose the photo could have be taken last year..........

For subjects that are not time relevant, a good photo is a good photo.......

Thoughts please...

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

So I just have to search through all my files and pull out any photo that meets the monthly topic. Not as demanding as having to go and actually make an effort each month to capture something new.

That said I will go with whatever people on here want. I am just glad the challenge is starting again. Thanks for volunteering, Paul also.
