I like the idea of desolation. Here is the definition of that::

* an event that results in total destruction
* a bleak and desolate atmosphere
* the state of being decayed or destroyed
* sadness resulting from being forsaken or abandoned

Might be something challenging to us all.

Thanksgiving is just over a month away. I'd rather be concentrating on things that make me grateful, not bleak, but that's just me.

Think I am going with people since vertical has been taken off. Maybe a vertical shot of a "people."

i'm going for desolation. seeing pictures of bleakness will really make you appreciate what you have more. but thats just my opinion.

when in danger or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout!

Desolation certainly gives opportunities for photographers to shine, but I am not sure it is a good desktop subject, although I have suitable pictures. I would prefer cityscape or graffiti.

it doesn't have to be desktop focused - just creative really :-)

I like the idea of desolation but I don't think I'll be able to get an entry together...

I'm in Victoria, Australia, so I have good subjects, but I don't think I'll get there in time...

So I voted on city scapes, hehe I can do that at lunch time.

I like the idea of desolation no it may not be pretty but photography covers all subjects in real life, & means much more than Butterflies, & flowers alone.

I think you all are right.Desolation isn't the best subject. A lot of people seem to want that according to the number of votes tho. I think it could be dramatic. And make for some great photos, but shadows are very interesting too and dramatic too. And this contest begins in a day? wow, I guess we'll all just have to go with the flow eh? Verena

It definitely looks like Desolation should be the Topic... I remember way back when (like 40 years ago)... I read that a Topic like this (or poverty, sorrow, pain) should be shot in B&W... that colour would make the image too attractive whereas B&W would emphasize this kind of Topic. I haven't yet Googled desolation, so I am unaware of today's train of thought! And anyway, if nobody gets 'hurt' in any way... rules are made to be broken! :o)

Shhh... a barn is on a farm!

sounds very challenging "desolation", why not look at the other side of life too.....
shadowplay would be my choice....
let's do it, go and see

Wow, 31 people voted for desolation...sadness & pain ? I can't believe it. That should make for some great pictures or manips.

there's not enough time to vote for the contest category! I've been waiting for a couple of days to vote (never have before), and I knew it started today, but it also ended in the early afternoon, which it didn't say before when it would end, only when it would start! I was at work all day so I didn't get to vote!

Please, even if you don't visit my gallery, check out my "Faves".I've left them intact since day "1", and would like it if every image there got the attention they deserved.
