"Photo of the Week" - #24 (Oct 11 - Oct 17, 2013)
9 months ago

Welcome to our "Photo of the Week" thread. Please read below and join in the fun!

...

NOTICE #1: Nikon FX cameras are now included.

NOTICE #2: There is no critiquing of photos posted in this thread. Please see #4 in the original P.o.t.W. thread here. It reads:

4. The responses and comments should be of a positive and encouraging nature where we tell the poster what we liked about their image and what grabbed us. The thread is not intended to be a place for critiquing the images or discussing technique or equipment, if the poster wants constructive criticism on an image he/she can post them in a separate thread and ask for this kind of feedback. I believe that there are a number of folks who out there who would be happy to share some images but are afraid to do so for fear of getting criticized, especially by some of the more blunt members of the forum.

...

REMINDER: We have 5 votes each, please vote for your 5 favourite photos.

GUIDELINES:

  • Post one (1) photo per participant.
  • Categories: anything you wish - landscapes, portraits, birds, sports, abstract, your choice.
  • Your photo must be no older than 2 weeks from the date you submitted it. (* see explanation below)
  • Use any Nikon DX or FX camera.
  • This thread ends one week from the start at 12:00 PM Pacific Time (-8 GMT).
  • Next tread begins a few hours later

VOTING: Please remember to vote.

  • Vote for your 5 favourites by clicking the “Like” button beside the photos.
  • Voting begins anytime, ends one week from the start at 12:00 PM Pacific Time (-8 GMT)
  • Anyone may vote, even if you didn't post an image.

IMPORTANT NOTICE - Please read the 2 items below and follow the instructions - thanks.

  1. Please reply to the first(original) post and please replace the subject title with the title of your photograph.
  2. When you make a comment please do not re-post the person’s photo so that we don’t end up with multiple copies of the same image, it makes voting confusing.

OBJECTIVES:

The main objective of this event is to get people taking photos on a weekly basis and sharing their single best shot of the week with the rest of us, all in a spirit of light-hearted fun. It’s hoped that participation in this thread will foster community building among the participants, plus motivate us to keep improving our photography skills ranging from creative imagining, to shooting, to processing. The weekly voting is not intended to make this into a highly competitive “contest”, but to provide a sufficient level of motivation to maintain interest over the long term. If you have any questions they were probably addressed in the original discussion thread which you can find at this link:http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3479611

* EXPLANATION for eligible dates of photos:

Why a 2-week period for photos? I received some emails lately saying that a one week period was not long enough to find a subject and to do a good job on the shooting, processing and selection, they feel too rushed. Since the main objective of this challenge is to get us out taking photos on a regular basis rather than just posting old photos from our archives, there's no real difference between one week old photos and two week old photos, they're all new and fresh. Hopefully, this will give those who felt rushed a little more time to relax, enjoy and participate.
