Ive been thinking about this one for a while. Not so much a competition, but something to make this section a bit more interesting and to encourage us to learn and take more exciting pictures. This is my idea and its only the start of an idea so if you think it can be done differently please shout up. Every fortnight one of us picks a theme (Animals, birds, buildings, churches, landscapes, people, trees, rivers - whatever you can think of). Everybody who is in commits to post at least 1 picture on the named subject within a 10 day period. we then discuss the results and ask questions about how each picture was produced. Other than keeping to the theme there are no hard and fast rules. People may use whatever camera they own and whatever photo editing software they choose to create whatever effect they like. There will be no whinging about photoshopping our using professional cameras. What you must do is post a picture, describe how you did it and be willing to answer questions. Even if you only have a mobile phone camera your more than welcome to join in. The idea is to learn rather than prove who has the best camera. There will be no single winner, but hopefully we all win by gaining new knowledge. Each fortnight one of us will choose a new theme and off we go again. How about it ?? Any suggestions ??
