Anyone interested? Image


Basically we agree on a theme and how many shots. Then we go back and forth taking turns posting a new photo we've taken based on the theme. For example, we could do a theme based on a colour or anything we can think of, going for 20 rounds, 10 pics each.

Some other examples, but there's a ton of choices:

churches
once was beautiful
junk
lines
circles
architecture
shadow & light
...etc.

This is a great way to build a portfolio and also encourage yourself to become a better photographer by focusing on a theme and project.

So, any takers? Image

--

Theme: Fire & Ice!
Rounds: 10 each
Spefs: Colour or B&W;Vertical or Horzontal
Image size: Any (640px max posted on OZZU)
Turn-A-Round: 2 days max (if possible)

Excellent! I'd be honored to take on the dMster. I don't believe you and I have ever done one, correct? This will be a really nice example for others to follow as well. Image

This will be fun. Can't wait to see. May the best photo snapper win! After you guys are done, maybe we could add a poll and have OZZU vote their opinion of the winner.

Odd number rounds FIRE and even number rounds ICE?

If we do that, we both have to post an image at the same time. So that would be 20 images each instead of 10.

Maybe just have the theme be Fire & Ice, and alternate each round for ourselves? So I would start with Fire, you with Ice. The my next would be Ice, and yours Fire. 5 Fire 5 Ice each?

Or is that what you were saying? Image

OK in the interest of getting this thing going, I'll post my first one (I took a few weeks ago). However it's quite fitting and there's really no reason not to get something posted right away. FYI, I'm just gonna size them all to 640.

I present to you my first shot for ICE:

We're getting some snow today, so if this isn't a good enough start being that I took it earlier, I'll replace it with something fresh from today. :)

This reminds me of that paper/rock/scissors game we all played when I was a kid. I almost thought the fire would melt the ice, but I checked back and it still held up. In particular I liked dm's spacing and dof on the tea lights, and I loved UNFLUX attention to detail in the focal points of the ice.

Because it changes the normal airflow, and forces the back of the car to the ground (it's basically an upside-down wing). don't know why they need it on road cars though ... probably for aesthetical reasons ...
