Re: 27th Photo Challenge, Self Portrait, Voting

There are more imaginitive images here than any previous challenge. I commend all the authors for their vision. Some of the images are totally 'outside the box'.
This will be difficult...................

I agree with Dave here, what an outstanding set of images - the thought that has gone into these is astonishing. Brilliant effort, everyone.

Now... how on earth do I decide on the voting?

Re: 27th Photo Challenge, Self Portrait, Voting

Great photographs and it will be difficult voting. However, am I right in thinking that, judging by the several interpretations of the theme Self Portrait, some of the members have been confused (like me ) by the words in Rule 2 "visibly anonymous"?

As I didn't enter, I didn't see this. Should this influence our voting then as it would narrow things down rather?
I know that in camera club competitions judges are often advised to consider rejection of images that don't comply with the rules.
However, I would be inclined to ignore Rule 2 but it is all down to the promoter - over to you Don!

I didn't enter either, Dave, as I was still planning my fantastic and unbeatable submission..........but ran out of time.

I would never have thought of half the ideas that were forthcoming from those that actually entered the comp!

Re: 27th Photo Challenge, Self Portrait, Voting

Maybe we should make a small change to rule 2 for this month to read "risibly anonymous".

Of course, it would then become permanent as this month's winner would cut & paste the rules when setting next month's challenge.....
