*** Mini-challenge 329 *** Candid
May 26, 2012

Thanks a bunch to kevindar for hosting a great challenge on one of my favourite topics. Sticking with my favourite topics... it's about a year since we did candid shots.

For the purpose of this challenge, "candid" means photos of people who don't know they are being photographed, in situations which are not staged, posed, or rehearsed, in which the subject is their faces and facial expressions. Some counter-examples - performer on stage, celebrity speaking in public, or a figure in a landscape.

A reminder about the DPReview posting rule against "voyeuristic pictures" - If you think anyone might consider your photo to be titillating, exploitative, smutty, or offensive, don't post it! I'll post some examples of acceptable shots in reply to this message.

This challenge will close at 08:00 on Saturday the 2nd of June, Western Australian time (midnight on Friday the 1st of June, UTC).

Standard Rules

The host gives you a topic of interest. You post a maximum of three images. Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera.

You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo (because we like to know).

Feel free to comment on other contestant’s images. If you want people to give you constructive criticism, ask for C&C.

The host chooses the winner. The host's decision is final. The host is not eligible.

The winner then hosts the next challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person. The winner has 48 hours to post the new challenge. If that doesn't happen 2nd place has 24 hours to do so, and if that doesn't happen it's up to the 3rd place winner.

Posting Guidelines

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to display your picture titles and/or your name. This way, when someone replies it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: * Mini-Challenge xxx * …" it would be very boring to scan the list.

Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website).

You may enter up to 3 pictures, but put them in a single post. Please give a title to each photo, this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.

Please size your photo no bigger than around 1200 pixels on the longest dimension. This is to let those with smaller monitors to see your image at full resolution. Please limit the file size of your entries to conserve bandwidth.

As a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos.
