Okay guys...

Partly because of some diminished response, partly because of me being extraordinarily busy at work, the contests have been forced to slow down a little.

I have a thought. Damian's theme for the next contest was the 7 Deadly Sins. I think this is a very fun theme, and could provide a lot of great photos, but i also know that the holidays are busy for everyone. So, my proposal, is to use this them, start the contest today, and have it run through the end of the week of New Years. So all photos would be submitted by Monday the 7th. Then we'd get back into our normal timing and contests.

Since the 7 Sins, could produce a number of shots, i also suggest that this be open to submit 7 photos - ie you can submit one photo for each sin (if you want, you don't have to) and the winning photo will still be selected from the entire group. This will allow for more creativity, and more selection, and the additional time should give people lots of chances to take some photos.

What do you all say?

If you like it...i'll make an official post later today.

I certainly like the extra time. I might actually get one in for a change.

7 submissions seems... odd. But if others like it go for it, majority rules. Not that this is a "vote" but I'd lean towards one entry per person.

I just threw out the 7 submissions idea to correlate with the sins. If nothing else, it might give us some additional cool shots to look at.

But, i agree with you - majority rules, so we'll see what others say.

I like it. Only thing I'll add is this - if you submit more than one photo, they are to be judged as a group, not individually. So, you might have one fantastic photo in 7, but the other 6 could drag it down ... :)

My suggestion.. do a holiday theme and let it run through the same timeframe. That would open up the floor to a lot of creativity with decorations, gifts, "in the moment gift opening with kids", etc.

Do the 7 sins after the New Year.

Well, there doesn't seem to be a clear cut solution here...so...here's what i'll do.

Since Damian really was the last winner...i'm going to give him the final say in how we do this. Damian, list out how you think the next couple weeks should go, and i'll write up the contest description.

If you want to use the 7 sins, we can, or if you like the idea of a holiday theme, and we do the sins after new years, that's fine too. I just thought i'd let you make the final decision.

Bump.

With summer here, new seasons brings new weather, color, more activity, cookouts, pool parties, etc.. we should start this back up. It was really fun looking at some of the images people could capture and even more fun participating. Any thoughts on kicking this back off?

Summer Fun Action shots, Macro shots with bees/flowers, etc.. there are a lot of new possibilities. :)
