    Contest will be 100% anonymous
    • One entry per user
    • no longer than 800px on the long side
    • no watermarks or borders
    • something new shot between start date and end date.
    • Attachments in any other format other than a JPEG (.jpg, .jpeg) will be treated as a virus and deleted before I see it.

    We're going to try and do this bi-weekly. Feel free to PM me with suggestions for themes.

    Also, please keep in mind, this is a photography contest, not a photoshop contest. While I encourage you to edit your photo's, please don't take it over the top.

    Themes will not always be cut and dry. Since this is to help spur our creative juices, some of the themes will be open for interpretation.

    --------------------------------------------------------
    Our 26th OTAP challenge will be:

    automobile

    Deadline is 1201am est on 08/15/08 (so that means they are due before midnight on 08/14/08)

    It never fails to astonish me that with all the shit talking 'elitist' members, we only ever have maybe half a dozen entries.

    And I'm looking forward to this one. I have a fucking great idea.

    I'm no elitist, but I do work 60-70 hours a week. I surf OT mostly on my phone during downtime at work. I wish I had more time to go out and take more pictures.

    I might actually do something on this one. The 15th is a long way off.

    I really need to get out and take some more pics so it might be crap, but I am going to get out and give this one a go

    I dont care about Devin, it is Jcolman and his crazy aluminim arm that should skurr you. Besides automobile has an incredible wide degree of interpretation

    Definition of 'automobile' from dictionary.com

    a passenger vehicle designed for operation on ordinary roads and typically having four wheels and a gasoline or diesel internal-combustion engine.

    IMO it's more like wheels + motor.


    Auto(self)
    Mobile(moves)
    =
    Self moving??

    does not say it is nice looking on the road, or now a pile of rust in a field that the local kids go to get BJs after school. Or that it is not an ice cream truck or even an accident scene.

    My babbling has just made me think of what I would like to do for this one. thinking out loud FTW

    well from the definition above, automobile is anything that is self moving.

    I hope it is just self moving at one point in its existence, not at the current state of the photo


    I guess its all on how your interpret it


    oh, and tractors can carry passengers, and drive on ordinary roads, I see it all the time (well not so much now that im near a big city)

    I think you guys are taking it too literal.

    Use your own judgment on what it is, and submit it to ITW :)
