IMPORTANT NOTICE - Please read the 2 items below and follow the instructions - thanks.

  1. Please reply to the first(original) post and please replace the subject title with the title of your photograph.
  2. When you make a comment please do not re-post the person’s photo so that we don’t end up with multiple copies of the same image, it makes voting confusing.


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.


** NOTICE #2: Rudy has stepped down, Jake is new Host/Admin

Regrettably, this past week was my final week as the Host/Admin for this thread. My wife and I are self-employed and recent work-related changes in our business require that I radically cut back on some of my hobby activities, namely in the area of photography.

After a lot of consideration I decided that I have to significantly reduce my participation on the dpreview forum for the foreseeable future. I have given careful thought to choosing a replacement and I'm pleased to inform you that my number one choice, "Jakester", has happily agreed to take over the hosting and administration of the thread. I have every confidence that Jake will do a great job for you! Thanks everyone for your support and encouragement each week.

(I will probably still be able to make the odd post on the forum from to time, so you're not totally rid of me. LOL!).
