OK, but what about: Challenge #3 in the Bring your camera everywhere series this week. Hosted by Rocky ID Olympian.

What if, (up until the 27th of February just gone) I had indeed been carrying my camera everywhere and had captured an exposure to blow most peoples socks off during my lunch hour - as suggested by the challenge?

Now, if I'm a stickler for the rules, that once in a lifetime exposure will never see the light of day - on DPREVIEW. Is that what a photography site is truly all about?


Are you trying to tell us that this photo that's going to blow most people's socks off is never going to be eligible for anyother challenge on DPR? Boll..., uh, I mean Balderdash!

My point is that one can't share ones work, with those who one wants, when one wants to. Yes, a future challenge may accommodate the image - but what if ones photograph is poignant - a topical image - a time sensitive image - fitting the week in mention extremely well - tying in perhaps with a big news story - a fleeting trend - a fad - a new idea?

What then, for 'democracy'?
