You are ALL cordially invited to participate in this Challenge, both in the 'eligible' and in the 'exhibition' galleries!

Please read on for all the challenge info; and, if you have any questions at all, simply post them to this thread...someone will be more than happy to reply as soon as possible!


STF CHALLENGE 137: "Fill Up the Frame"

The object of this challenge is to take a photograph that is composed or cropped such that the subject fills the whole frame, and there is no visible background. The image could be a macro such as a close-up of a flower, or it could be a much larger subject, such as the repeating patterns in a farm field, or a building. There are endless possibilities and I can't wait to see your interesting and creative entries!

Challenge 137 began at 10:30PM CST (Chicago time), Thursday, February 8, 2007 and will end Monday, February 19th, 2006, at 9 PM CST (Chicago time). The galleries will be set up soon, and everyone will then have two full weekends to obtain images. Here is the link to the Challenge 137 main gallery page:



These guidelines are meant to help things run smoothly for all... & to serve as a handy reference to answer common questions. Thanks for reading through 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: kkenison@tds.net

  • 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 10:30PM CST, Thursday, February 8, 2007 until Monday, Monday, February 19th, 2006, at 9:00PM CST. 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. 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.

  • 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.

Thanks for your cooperation
