Discussion Thread for November Competition

"Black & White" or "Similar or Different" Let's give entrants some feedback without worrying about who we're going to actually vote for at the end of the month!

Re: Discussion Thread for November Competition

Could we do a combination of both topics?

Go for it, Margie! As long as we submit only one entry, it's up to voters to decide if we nailed the theme or not.

A question about the black and white theme. Does the picture have to be taken in black and white mode or can it be taken in colour and then desaturated?

My opinion is that it doesn't matter -- "black and white" could even be a color photo of things that are black and things that are white -- or something more creative that I haven't even thought of yet.

Let me say something "Official" as the moderator -- this competition is here to give us all another reason to shoot images. Let's allow ourselves full lee-way to shoot whatever occurs to us when we see the theme title. When people discuss our images and vote for their favorites, they can say whether they agree or disagree, but YOU are the photographer, and the control is completely in YOUR hands while you decide what and how to shoot. Margie, you always submit interesting images, and I'll just say again -- "Go for it!"

from crazyfly1 in the comp thread.

Scubamargie, I don't know a lot about BW but I think that's an awsome picture. Are those gears really that big or do they just look huge because of how you shot them?
Thanks for your comment crazyfly1. The gears are pretty big and almost true to size in the photo. I was laying on the ground about a foot away from it when I took the image.
