Re: July Photo Challenge - Blue

Hey everyone, sorry I have been absent for a few days. Our computer completely died on Thursday! My husband spent many hours this weekend trying to fix it and was unable to do so. He's taking it to work today, so hopefully he will be able to recover everything we need from the hard drive so we can start over. Unfortunately, I took some new photo's on Thursday, which hadn't been backed up yet (our computer was set to back everything up on another hard drive on Fridays) so I'm a little upset about that, hopefully he will be able to get them back, because they were for the challenge. Ok, rant is over....

There is no rule against posting the same type of shots. Just because someone already posted a shot similar to what you want to shoot, doesn't mean you can't post it for the challenge anyway. People will just vote for whichever one they feel is better. So please still take them Leish! I'm sure we are bound to have a couple similar shots in our upcoming challenges as well.

I have no problem with manipulating your photo's, as long as it is a photo you took. I think this could be addressed each month by whoever is deciding that month's theme. Perhaps some themes would be better suited not to allow it. But I will say this month, as long as it is 'Blue' then go for it. I think Aniri's eye photo is great and perfectly acceptable to be submitted.

I need to find a new idea now. My idea was 90% similar to this other person's.
Like I said before Leish I don't think you have to find a new idea, especially if you bought stuff just to get this shot, you should definately still submit it. Even if they are similar shots, each persons will still be unique and their own shot, so I hope you do still submit it.

YAY! Thank you, Lady. I kept thinking about my shot last night, wishing I could still enter it in the competition. I'd specially edited and resized it and everything!

And now I can still enter!

I swear that I did not nick the idea off anyone else. I've had both my ideas since you started the challenge and I HATE the thought of copying others' work. I have my own ideas and I like using them.

Re: Photo Challenge - Discussion Thread

'What's going on here?' you may well ask! Okay, so after some discussion with Lady, I've gone ahead and seperated out the posts in the original 'July Photo Challenge - Blue' thread into two seperate threads. The entries and comments upon those entries are now housed over here, in the thread of the original title. That should make it easier to keep track of entries, without having to skim through pages of unrelated discussion. At the end of the month I'll add a poll to the thread for voting.

This discussion thread is for broader discussion of the challenge - rules, ideas, pictures of small blue dots bearing cameras, that sort of thing. It will span months, so it will always be open. Photo Challenge HQ, if you like.

Hope that isn't too confusing...

Re: Photo Challenge - Discussion Thread

Just thinking ahead to next month - if winner chooses the next theme, fair enough, but July's winner won't be known until some time after August starts. I'm figuring July voting begins first of August, and stays open for a week? Which leaves us without a theme-picker...

So, August's theme-chooser out of a hat, then?

We can't shorten August? You don't think two weeks would be long enough for people to post their photos? Maybe it wouldn't.

Re: Photo Challenge - Discussion Thread

I think people (including me!) would get impatient with a month long wait.

Well it wouldn't be a month long wait it would only be about 2 weeks.

I think the simplest way to do it would be to keep it a monthly thing (hence the monthly of the title), open voting in the first week of the next month, and the winner of that month picks the next month. Hence July's winner picks September, August's October, and so on. That way we only have one month (August) that needs a chooser nominated.

But then, we didn't ever really decide that winner would pick, so if anyone has any objects to that, speak now or forever hold your peace...

Re: Photo Challenge - Discussion Thread

I think winner being the one to choose is a good idea. Unless, like Cul said, there is anyone opposed to it. And if the winner has already posted a theme, they should nominate someone else so everyone gets a chance at posting a theme.

I was also thinking that we could put the poll up around the 25th of the month. That way, it gives everyone a little over 3 weeks from when the challenge was started to take their pictures and post them up, and there would be the final week of the month to vote. If we did it that way, we would probably know who would be the 'winner' and choosing the next month's theme, and they could have the new theme posted on the 1st of August. Unless people feel they need the entire 4 weeks to take pics for the challenge.

Hey - Does anybody know why my picture was removed? It sure couldn't have been seen as offensive - It was just a baby wearing sunglasses in a blue chair. (?)

I can still see it. You might have been looking in the wrong thread.
