“Photo of the Week” – #3 (May 17 – May 23, 2013)

Welcome to our “Photo of the Week” thread for this forum. Please take a moment to read the Guidelines and Objectives and then jump right in.


  1. Post 1 photo per week.
  2. Photo must have been shot between Fri. May 17, 2013 and Thurs. May 24, 2013. 
    (* Please see Note below)
  3. Voting begins anytime; voting closes Thursday at 12:00 noon (GMT -4:00)
  4. Photos must be taken by a camera covered in this forum: Nikon D40-90, D3000-7100.
  5. The category can be anything you like: landscapes, macros, sports, portraits, kids, events, wildlife, cityscapes, abstract... you name it, if it moved you we'd like to see it.
  6. When commenting on a participant’s photo your comments should be kept brief and of a positive and encouraging nature where you tell the poster what you like about their image and what grabbed you. This thread is not intended for critiquing images - if a poster wants constructive criticism on an image he/she should post it in a separate thread and ask for this kind of feedback.
  7. Voting: Anyone can vote, you do not need to have submitted an image in order to vote.
    Everyone gets 3 votes. You vote for the posted images by pressing the "Like" button beside the 3 images you like the best in each weekly thread. The image with the most votes will be recognized as "The Photo of the Week," with 2nd and 3rd place going to the other two with the most votes. Voting anytime and ends Thursday at 12:00 noon (GMT -4:00).

* Note:  Qualifying photos must have been shot between May 10 - May 23, 2013... a 2 week period.

EXPLANATION: 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.


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
