    Ok, here we go. I just want throw your the theme for the first OT A&P's Photo Challenge. The theme is "signs".


    EDIT:

    So here are the rules and instructions.

    • Obviously, photos must be taken by you and within the time frame of the Challenge. For this one its September 1-30, 2005.
    • Photo must contain EXIF information.
    • No major photochopping allowed.
    • Limit resolution to smaller than 1100x800. 800x600 is preferred.
    • Borders, signitures, watermark are ok for now within reasons.
    • Attempt to limit your submissions to one thread, but no more than 2 threads if need. Its only ok to submit a second thread if you're trying something totally different from the first thread submission. Each thread can contain a single photo or a series of photo pertaining to the theme of the challenge.
    • If you're submitting a series of photo, keep it in one thread and limit the series to 5 photos. Take into consideration if you're going to submit a series of photos how each photo is connected and related. Like does it tell a storyline, does it point to a bigger message, etc.... Avoid submitting a series of random photos. Quality > Quantity, remember that!
    • For each thread, put the name of the challenge followed by a colon (":") and either your name or the title to your work if you wish in the subject line.
      Example: "Signs: <name of my portfolio>"
    • No NWS submissions please!

    If you need help with webhosting, PM me and I can assist.


    For viewers. Please give small constructive criticism or appreciation. Leave a small rating from 1-10 (10 the very good, 5 is ok, and 1 is bad) in your reply.

    I left the theme very vague on purpose. Do what you want with the theme, but think creatively and don't just limit yourself to obvious traffic signs and such. ;)

    If you can defend it I would say it is ok...

    Maybe if your dogshit has worms in it then you could say it is a sign that your dog has worms

    why don't we email you or pm you the link to the photo and then you (or whoever wants to handle the contest) can create a poll and let the masses vote on it? i think that would be handled a little easier than creating new threads for everyone's entry.

    Naw, just create a new thread using the subject line format above. At the beggining of next month, I'll take a best of whatever pictures, based on critics and ratings, for the month prior and post a poll up. ;)

    Photo must contain EXIF information.

    how do you do this??

    Your camera should automatically put the EXIF info in your photo. Just becareful of what application you use to 'fix' up your photo and resize. For example, if you use MS Paint to resize, it removes all the EXIF data when you save your work. Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, and most other good photo editing software retains the EXIF data. If you're not sure, go ahead and do what you can and we'll let you know if the EXIF data is missing.
     
  19. You really think we should flood the A&P section with everyone's submissions?? Is there a sub forum at least?? :ugh:

    IMO all the pics should be posted in One thread... :dunno:
     

  20. Don't worry, if you don't know what it is you don't know how to remove it :)
     
  21. The way that seems most effective and it's done in other forums is

    1st thread:

    Photos and comments

    2nd thread:

    Poll and comments

    Fazle wants to see how the interest on this thing turns out before he starts a subforum.
    Can we just give this a shot for now? I'm using a similar format as the one at Stevedigicam forum.

    Again, how about we just give this a shot and see how it goes. I requested a subforum to Fazle but he wants to see the interest level before he creates one.
