    Re: August Photo Challenge - Life's a Beach

    Sorry if the title is causing confusion. To clarify, this is a wide brief and could range from a packed beach full of people to a deserted landscape/seascape, with plenty of scope for creative thinking!

      The brief says " subjects can be anything connected to the sea or coastline".

      "Life's a beach" is actually the antithesis of the expression "Life's a bitch". As it's August and holiday season when many go to the coast John has used it as a snappy title for the challenge it doesn't have to be taken literally. Ingenious interpretation of the title can make all the difference in a challenge like this IMHO.

        I like wide subjects, and although I submitted a shot full of people it would be a great pity if the competition was narrowed down by post hoc rules that people (or anything else) are essential subjects
        I think that the judges votes alone should determine what fits the theme

          During my brief foray into photo club life, I submitted an abstract print (an attempt to make an alien landscape from a portion of a nude body) in which I used an image of the earth from space as a small element. It was disqualified because I hadn't taken the shot of the earth myself!

            How could they prove that?
