Has anyone else noticed the trend? Last month chaplainblake won, has posted nine times in total and hasn't posted since suggesting the theme for April. This month JC won and has posted three times in total. It looks like the key to success is to spend less time on the forum and more with the camera. Well, that lets me out then. :lol:

Seriously, congratulations JC. Looking forward to your theme for June. 8)

Bob.

P.S. Thanks to those of you who thought my manky old boots were worthy of your vote. Much appreciated and very encouraging. 8) 8)

 Post subject: Theme for June
PostPosted: Mon May 26, 2008 9:47 am 
Hola

Sorry for not replying or comment anything in here, but here in Denmark we are busy with over exams.

Thanks for all the votes. A pretty tough competition with so many good captures. I especially liked Hailstorm's tram, Bob's boots , alex168's bikes and Syncharmony's model F1 (took me a while to see it was just a model - great idea).

For the June assignment I will go with one of the great ideas from "Suggestions for themes". Although there a many good suggestions JakeOConnell's suggestion "Power of Light" stands out. Since photography is the art of drawing with light, this suggestion is more than brilliant and therefore I will appoint it for the June assignment. So the contesters are to illustrate the power of light in their capture. I will also go with a rule, which makes it a bit more challenging. For the June assignment post processing is not allowed.

And just to reply on this month's assignment, I really like Deino's boat, zorro's river, LahLahSr's fireworks, sunil's boat, Georgie2H's fortune teller globe (if it's the correct name) and more. All of them is pretty classic and optical reflection - but still brilliant - where as Georgie2H's picture also - for me at least - interprets metaphysical reflection, which Gordon Laing suggested in his thread.

JC

Hi JC,

Congrats on the win. And I like your idea of no post-processing, but could you be a little more elaborate as there are members who prefer to shoot in RAW mostly and this does require some post-processing. Also are changes such as cropping permissable?

I assume the no post-processing rule exclude JPEG to RAW conversion along with all the minor tweaks that go along with it? Then again, minor is hard to define.

Some clarification on the no PP rule would be appreciated JC. :)

Yes. If you use Canon's DPP software, for example, to create a JPEG from a RAW it should pick up the camera default settings (the ones the camera uses when it creates its own JPEGs) and use those. That means, within the spirit of a friendly competition, that no post-processing has been applied. My guess is that a similar situation applies to other camera manufacturer's RAW converters. Using third party RAW conversion software with custom settings might fall foul of JC's intent, however. :?

Of course, one could always use RAW + JPEG for the shots intended as possible competition entries. :wink:

Bob.
