View Full Version : Would like a consensus on suggested themes

12-27-2006, 09:54 AM
We have a long list of suggested themes for upcoming months that I'd like to get a general consensus for. Some suggestions were left out because we've done them recently.
You may vote for more than one theme, as this is just a consensus.

1: LOVE/Romance
2: Fairy tale/Fantacy
3: Cameras "take a creative shot of our hobby tool/toy"
4: Toys. "still life or an action posed photo of a toy in use"
5: f16/depth "any shot as long as the apeture is f11++"
6: Age "something OLD (pre1900's?) taken with something NEW(dslr)"
7: History "subject matter of a historical event local to our own area"
8: Abstracts in colors
9: Abstracts in BW
10: Local colors (like in traditions, rites)
11: Things that are liquid
12: Things that can fly
13: Transportation means
14: Reportage around the world
15: Modern architecture
16: Ancient architecture
17: Things that are old
18: Things that are rusty
19: Bridges and walkways
20: Human drama
21: Hands and/or feet
22: City life
23: Urban setting
24: Long exposure shots
25: Open contest. No theme, only creativity.
26: Self-taken portrait (serious, not altering appearance)
27: Self-taken portrait (goofy)
28: Juxtaposition "placing two things close together or side by side. This is often done in order to compare/contrast the two, to show similarities or differences, etc." eg. a banana with a potatoe peeler, or a cassette tape with a DVD.

In your vote poll, #5 needs to move down to #6 (#6 and #7 are the same) and #5 needs to become the f/16 depth one.

Thanks. I guess I left that one out by accident. : )
Fixed now. Oops, "Age" was voted on, so I will switch that one, too.

I voted for 12 Items one for each month but Item 1 should be for February..

Yes, I agree. I'm just getting a consensus for future contests.:smile:

i might be thoughtfull to only pick 6 months worth of themes, as not everyone will be by there PC's over the holidays this week to vote.
then perhaps halfway through the year choose the last 6 months worth of monthy themes.

justmy3cents ;)
