Re: August 2007 Photo Assignment -- Discussion Thread

Okay -- Janet posted a "sunset" instead of a "sunrise" --- anyone who wants to comment, please go ahead. If anyone knows how to tell the difference, please tell us. I know one is in the east, and the other is in the west, and one is in the morning and one is in the evening, and one requires me to get out of bed in the dark while the other makes me drive home in the dark, but can anyone tell from a photo which is which? [Thank you, Janet, for admitting to a "sunset". ]

Re: August 2007 Photo Assignment -- Discussion Thread

Technically speaking the entry by Janet is not on the theme, but at least she was honest about it, which is probably the only way anyone would know the difference. I guess when time comes to vote, one of the criteria that the average person would probably use for selection is "howwell does the image fit the theme?".

Apart from it being a touch on the cheeky side, I am certainly not going to play the fascist and demand it be removed LOL

I have no problem with leaving Janets' pic in the contest.

The only difference I can see in the shots entered is that the sunrises, most of them, have more of an orange colour. Janets' seems to be more pink.

I found this link while trying to discover what the difference was between sunrise and sunset, don't know if it helps, but have a look and see what you think.

I'm not certain that it makes too much difference. The competition is all in the name of fun more than anything else. If prizes and/or reputations were at stake then things would be different.

I'm certainly not going to get bent out of shape about it

Pete

Congratulations Frank! Very well done. Beautiful picture.

I agree with CJ, each one made me think, "I wish I'd done that."

Janet
