Week Challenge, Curves, 24th to 31st July

Postby Dr DBW » Wed 22 Jun, 2011 10:48 am

Theme
Curves

Time Frame
Sunday 24th to Saturday 31th July, 2011

Concept
The idea behind the challenge is not a competition. It is a way to get people out using their cameras (no matter what sort it is) taking photographs, interpreting the theme, working with what is available, working on techniques, exploring features on the camera and further developing photographic skills. Others can then provide feedback on the images taken, how it could be improved, what other techniques to try and so on.

Feedback
Comments can be left by all registered users at the bottom of the page for each photograph. To get to the photograph page you must click on the photograph title. If you click on the photograph itself, it will enlarge the photograph on the screen. Photographs can also be rated by all users, on a scale of 1 to 10.

Conditions
  • Theme is made available on the Friday before the week challenge commences.
  • Each participant is challenged to take a photograph on each day, on the theme specified. That is a total of 7 different photographs, each taken on a separate day.
  • Photograph are uploaded to the participants own gallery, linked to below.
  • Each photograph should be titled with the date it was taken and a title, showing how it is linked to the theme. For example: "6th: Some funky and abstract title"
  • Participants are encouraged to upload an image for the day even if didn't take any "good" photos.
  • There are no requirements on post-processing of the photographs, do as you see fit and the photograph requires.

Gallery
All photographs can be seen via the challenge gallery at gallery/album.php?album_id=397

Can be easier to view the recently uploaded images page (but remember this includes all images from the entire RTAW Gallery section, not just the challenge)

Participants
This is a list of the people that are participating in the challenge. Clicking on their username will take you to the album containing their entries.

Great to see some renewed interest in this, got a good number of participants this month. :thumbsup:

Galleries created for everyone that has expressed interest so far.

Just check to make sure permissions are set correctly for each of you, just follow the link to your gallery and there should be a button top left that says "New Image". Let me know if it isn't there for you.

Note, I had the date wrong, have fixed it up. This Sunday is the 3rd, not the 2nd.

And remember, if you are participating, take the time to view, vote and comment on photos from other users too. :poke:

ok, my suggestion (since it's tonight and all!) is Origin.

Not origin in terms of NRL, but rather as the word is defined.

Sorry gents, but I was meant to set this up before heading on holidays, but ended up going to a funeral on that day. Then was meant to have a laptop to be able to get online, but that one died. Then had to purchase another one, which had issues, had to get a replacement, then went on holidays etc. so timing was just screwed.

Really thought someone else here might have picked things up and ran with it, but it seems not.

Will see about rescheduling for next week then.

I was going to choose it randomly from the list I posted at viewtopic.php?p=887094#p887094 , removing of course the ones we have done so far.
