Thanks MCsaba for hosting Challenge 123, a very creative theme with wonderful entries. You did a great job of hosting and your comments were greatly appreciated by all!

Since we've all recently merged under the Sony brand label, you are invited to participate in this latest Challenge, in both the 'eligible' and 'exhibition' categories! Konica-Minolta made great cameras and many of us eagerly anticipate the products that will soon come from the merging of two technologies! So, with respect to this, we look forward to your entries that exemplify what KM cameras are capable of, and hint at what good stuff is ahead for all of us!

(PS - please have a look at the bottom of this message for links to the galleries and detailed entry procedures)


STF CHALLENGE 124 Theme: "Color Contrast "

Capture the contrast between two colors. If possible, shoot for complementary colors (see color wheel in Demo Folder)

Challenge 124 begins now, with this announcement, and will end Monday, August 21st, 2006, at 9 pm US EST (NY time). The galleries will be set up shortly, and everyone will then have two full weekends to obtain images.



These guidelines are meant to help things run smoothly for all... & to serve as a handy reference to answer common questions. Thanks for reading thru all this stuff again:

  • Up to three (3) images are allowed in each of the two galleries.

  • You can enter photos anonymously, by submitting your image & sending me an email indicating your real identity. My email address is cionita@rogers.com

  • Collaborating on entries is welcome. An artist can be involved in up to three collaborative efforts IN ADDITION TO the usual 3 individual images allowed.

  • Those who prefer to have critiques of their photos be more "critical", feel free to mark the image title with an asterisk ( )

  • There are no restrictions on post processing your photos before submitting them.

  • Please put a unique title and your name (identity choice) on each of your image thumbnails (e.g.'Seeing Stars by HAL9000'). It really helps to keep voting problem issues to a minimum.

  • Please resize your images to no larger than 800 pixels on the longest side before uploading to PBase (can be larger if it's a panoramic image).

  • Please keep your questions & concerns posted in this thread for best response. Someone will address them as soon as possible.

  • Challenge time period will run from the time this posts until Monday, August 21st, 2006, at 9 pm US EST (NY time). Time tables will be posted in the galleries. A separate voting thread will be posted shortly after the end of the Challenge period.

  • ELIGIBLE images must be taken with a Sony OR Konica Minolta digital camera...& within the challenge time period. The winner of this gallery will host the next Challenge, with the Challenge info, voting, and results threads to reside in the Sony Talk Forum. All ELIGIBLE entries should at least include the camera model used & the date indicating when the photo was taken..."EXIF" data attached would be ideal (if available). "EXIF" data is a big help to a lot of viewers for a variety of reasons. Thanks for your cooperation.

  • EXHIBITION images can be obtained with any camera at any time. If you do not want to host the next Challenge, this is the gallery you should post your images to.

  • Here’s a link to the main STF Challenge galleries page:

Konica Minolta participants, if you have any questions regarding entry procedures or guidelines, please post them in this thread and you're bound to receive helpful answers from someone. I'm looking forward to your participation in Challenge 124. Good luck to everyone and have fun!!
