Pick the next contest topic

Submitted by caedes 06/03/09 3:07 AM GMT

I have created a poll to pick the next contest topic. There are no default options, so the first person to vote will have to come up with a suggested contest topic. Let's see how this goes... =)

I would love to see a contest entitled, "Look, Up in the Sky" - this would give everyone a chance to enter and win and Caedes people can be so creative with this one. Think of the possibilities - clouds, rainbows, birds, planes, kites, fireworks, and more. However, I will look forward to ANY contest because Caedes contributors are so creative and imaginative.

'Subconscious' would be my conscious guess. :) The mind works in mysterious ways. This would open the contest to all forms of art. Fractal (my fav :)...surreal, 3d, all digital art, all forms of photography,landscape,still life,animal,plants, manips, fantasty art, and just about anything one could think of. Variety is the true measure of a contest I believe. A contest that leaves no one out that would like to enter is the best IMO. Thanks for the listen.....The Lion

I agree with the Lion on this one.Let's include everyone and
every type of image.This sure would open a lot of possibilities
for all.We all have a Subconscious idea of something in our
world. I vote for this.

It's always great when the theme can include all art forms and I think the b/w idea would certainly accommodate all...but subconscious stuff sure sounds intriguing too so I added it to the list on the poll for you.

How about " Straight From The Camera", untouched by any editing programs, to give everyone a chance to show their 'unfixed' skills.

I put my vote in for B&W. But some other ideas I thought of;

- Motivational poster
- Texture
- Blue (or any other color)

How about two of the already mentioned themes, namely B&W and single color, combined? If not, then my vote's for "plain, ordinary" B&W.

Perhaps a creative bokeh in B&W of a beauty in decay?? Just to make things really HOTT!!

I really like bingwa / Wononas idea of Straight from the Camera imagine a pure jpg totally unedited, but simply resized to a standard resolution with a uncropped aspect ratio.
It would really show just how good a photographer is in the raw ! nowadays with Photoshop etc classic photography is simply a disappearing art which is a shame.
One advantage of this contest would be any category of photograph could be entered, one disadvantage of this idea would be how could we enforce the rules ? (o:

I very much like the idea of 'straight from the camera' being a keen photographer myself but what about all the digital artists on this site....it kinda excludes them :(

maybe we should begin to toss out ideas and suggestions for entries in the category that was already chosen, which is Black&White.

my two cents, for whatever it's worth, would be that perhaps some high contrast..literally 'black' and 'white', not grey, ought to be the preferred theme.. or as close to that as possible.

thoughts?

Yeah, so it's B & W. I do like the idea of going with high contrast as it will give the image / subjects more impact or emphasis. To me high contrast adds more drama & emotion to the image as well. Hmmmmm ... for some reason silhouettes come to mind. Most definitely will lend some creativity as I know the process of creating a high contrast B & W isn't easy & does require some post-processing to achieve the look one wants in the image (most of the time).

Forget the straight outta the camera one, because theres no way to tell if anyone has "tinkered" with it or in that case, would be cheating? I'd have to go with B+W, just plain ol' B+W. High contrast makes for the best ones. The subconscious idea is also a very good one, and would be great for guys like myself who tend to step out of the box. So wheres this poll, and when do we start?

Link to poll at the very top of this discussion thread and contained in the news announcement itself, Jay.

However, as of this writing, the poll is now closed. But ...

I suspect you will be pleased to note that "B & W" was the outcome for the next site contest and decided theme, amongst those that participated. :o)

Pretty cool! I just came back to see what was up.. Though, after some thinking. I got deep into what kinds of B+W we should do. Light and shade for instance. We are artists, are we not? Lets dig even further into the theme.

Re Wayne 15575 suggestion about kids & out of school ativities etc. Dangerous, this one given the legal implications of images published regarding A/ the child protection laws & B/ The rights of anyone appearing in any image to be consulted prior to its publication & then to agree to its publication. Not sure how this would apply to minors. Would you, for instance, need the permission of the childs parent to use any image?
