Week Challenge, The End, 2nd to 8th October

Postby Dr DBW » Mon 26 Sep, 2011 10:04 am

Theme
The End

Time Frame
Sunday 2nd to Saturday 8th October, 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=468

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.

I think we will use a grading system I suggested when we started these things, as bit of a stick to get those that have put their hand up to actually submit images ;) You get these labels based on the number of images you submit -
  • 7: legend
  • 6: gave it a good hard go
  • 5-4: at least tried
  • 3-2: not even trying
  • 0-1: what the?!
