    Just a friendly little contest. We could come up with a theme, and then everyone would submit a new picture they took themselves for that theme. At the end of the contest, we all vote on the best one. Winner gets a cookie. :big grin:

    We could start it off in August... What do you think?

    Yea, I agree. Thats too cliche. It needs to have an artistic, yet OT flavor to it.

    Any ideas?

    ok sounds good to me

    I say we start as soon as we decide on a item to photograph.
     
  8. I want a cookie! How about we have a new picture to take every week starting Sunday. I (or someone else) could even keep a collection of all the pictures submited and have a website. If you get caught using someone elses picture or a picture off the internet you lose your right to have a cookie! ;)

    Some OT related ideas (everyone is always askin for 'pics?'):

    1) Hotties
    2) Dyno Queen Supras
    3) A picture of 'OT' (up for interpretation)
    4) 0wned
    5) : greddy :


    Non-OT related

    6) Moon
    7) Mailbox
    8) Billboard
    9) Kittys in the Sunset ;)

    Anyway...just some of my thoughts. Pictures could be judged on content and photo-taking-ability

    Awesome ideas!

    Do you think once a week is too quick or do you think once a month would be better? If you could setup the website for the photos that would be awesome. If there was a way we could vote for the best one each round that would be even better.

    I like the following:
    1. Self-portrait
    2. Your city
    3. Well-known landmarks
    4. People out and about (random artistic shots of people you dont know)
    5. Kitties in the sunset.

  11. I didn't realize how slow the A&P forum was :slap: so ya, maybe once a month would be better. The last week of each month we could start a poll of about 4-5 ideas for next month's theme. Which ever theme has the most votes wins on the first of the month.

    I can setup a site to host the photos and stuff, how should voting be handled? Pics could be emailed to me and for voting maybe close submissions the last week of the month as well, and post a poll for the photos. On the first of the month last month's winner and next month's theme would be announced. I don't have :unlimitedbandwidth: so I would say keep the pics at 1024x768 or smaller (no 11mb tiffs ;) )

    yes.... same here about buying a 'kitty'

    i could always steal one. also, once a month i think is a little bit slow, how about bi-weekly?

    Normally I would disagree with this as OT's main forum has one almost every day, but given the nature of this forum I would suspect people would put abit more artistic efforts.

    Just to throw in a mix, I'd like to recommend the use of manipulation. I'm curious what most people look like anyhow (maybe not :ugh: ) but in this contest the use of photoshop or similar means should be allowed.. just don't go over the edge and pull a Dubtastic on the photo (manipulation beyond recognition)

    If not, I'd like to see a theme I've been quite intrigued by for some time. Subways. There it is! I've seen some really good shots of trains on people's websites and photo submissions on the web. So who's up for it ?

    well, i think we can do without the manipulation.

    just an artisitic self portrait, not the off the mirror shot. although some might call that artistic in some sick way :o

    I say no manipulation. You can do too much with pshop nowadays. It almost takes the fun out of taking pictures.

    Self portrait? Bleh. :down: I think we've seen enough of those in 'Post pics of yourself v294212414' threads. I don't know how else to take pics of myself.

    I'm down with kitties in sunsets. :bigthumb: (I'd have to buy/steal a kitty, though).

    How about?

    - cars
    - architecture
    - landscape/treescape
    - macros
    - abtract
    - night pics (have fun with motion blurred lights)

    I like the self portiat idea. This wouldnt be the normal POST YOUR PIC .

    Well not if you want to win anyways.
    I like the bi-weekly time frame.

    I say post the pics on the web page. Only people with posted pics are allowed to vote. Hmm i guess then everyone would just have one vote. The one they vote for themselves. Ok you cant vote for yourself?

    i am not sure about the voting part.

    I say you go both ways on the manlipulation. One time no next time yes.
