Challenge 6: The Wide : Open

Well, as it’s holiday season and people may have more time on their hands, I’ve decided to go for an open round.

Rather than being tied by a theme, you are now tied by a format.

The subject matter can be anything you like. Shoot your favourite things. Shoot your favourite places. Shoot your favourite people.

With this proviso….

The format of your picture must be widescreen, wide ratio, panoramic, whatever you like to call it. I want see pictures that are not the usual 4:3 or 3:2 ratio. Dig out that stitching program, or crop unusually.

Whatever you do, you should be thinking outside of your normal viewfinder. An exercise in alternative composition. Easy eh?

Landscapes make a natural choice for this type of picture, and holidays give us more time to get out and about. But I don’t just want to see these. Shoot something you wouldn’t normally do in this format. Just make it eye catching. Impress everybody. Use the open subject to be creative!

Exhibition category may have you revisiting some previous works. Try a different crop of something you shot last year. Maybe a composite montage. Whatever you want.

Just have fun for holiday season OK.

  • Previous participants may use the Login and Password from Challenge 5

  • If you are new and do not know the userid and password, please e-mail one of the password holders at cslr@imageattic.net Please allow a few hours to receive that information.

  • IMPORTANT: Please respect our Pbase bandwidth and ensure that your photos are no more than 150K in size.

  • Photos now have no limit on dimensions provided they fall within the 150 kilobyte limit, but bear in mind that the most popular screen size is 1024x768 so try to present your picture to fit accordingly. Viewers are more likely to appreciate your work at its original size without the use of scroll bars!

  • Please respect one another’s work. Do not delete, move, or otherwise edit other entries. Please respect the first-come, first-serve sequence of the gallery. You may update one of your images in-place, provided that the subject matter has not materially changed (PBase supports this function on the “Edit Image” page).

  • Photo by photo, please share your comments with your colleagues. Challenges reach their full potential when the dialogue becomes as important as the photos themselves.

  • Those who enjoy more plainspoken and critical comments on their photos should mark their title(s) with an asterisk ( )
