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
King Farm Maryland. Taken with my Tokina 11-16 mark 2 lens.
... Brev: I can't remember my later impression so clearly contrast my initial reaction.
... I was immediately disappointed, but now I really like it. It's subtle, but really conveys a mood. There are truly rythmns thoughout. Fascinating!
This is just one of numerous tributes to the great leader Nelson Mandela ( Madiba ).
This image of Madiba is laser projected onto Table Mountain and I took this picture from the V&A Waterfront.
There have been activities going on for more than a week now and one of the more
memorable and touching tributes was the message from a little girl who wrote on one of the boards
