    Don't worry about the extra - it doesn't hurt but just provides more information that is not normally required.

          By Jove! I think I've got it!!

          I think I understand what's going on...officially the mini assignment: Beach, etc. will be announced sometime next week (in other words we have extra time to prepare in the next few days), we then have 7 days of planning-and then a further 7 days for shooting and prep.

          We label our submitted image (and included exif data) with the tag eg. "Mini Assignment: Beaches" so that it may be easily searched for.
          Further shots are welcome for discussion but should be clearly marked and identified so as not to confuse entries and discussion photos (Judges, forum readers, passersby, grocery clerks, ehhmm etc.)

          All images submitted should be new ones, taken for this assignment.

          Wheeew.

                  I've seen some other contests and there they have "minimal photoshop rules".
                  You can adjust brightness, contrast, curves or crop but cannot remove objects from your picture.

                    I don't think we have decided on that yet. For now, I think "be honest" is probably a reasonable guideline - don't try to pretend that you got your perfectly framed and exposed shot off the camera when you spent hours post-processing.

                    However, based on the idea that people will give full disclosure about what they did (helping others to learn) I don't think there is any reason to be shy about some post-processing. I've been reading some books by and about Ansel Adams recently and one thing that strikes me is how much time he spent building his darkroom skills to fine tune what he got from his camera into the image he wanted to present. If he was working today, I suspect that he would be doing more than "minimal photoshop" on most of his pictures!

                      Where and when do we have to post for this contest?
                      I've visited the beach two days ago and have some candidates for the contest

                        CAN NOT WAIT.... not even close to a beach, english summer, competition... This should be brilliant.. DigiDave - you just made me spurt coffee over my four keyboards!!... very amusing... I think I might try and "fabricate" a beach to shoot.... Love the "new photo" rule... gives me (like I need one) another excuse to wander off with my camera... brilliant.

                        Right, i'm making tea - who wants what?...

                          I'm pretty sure that you could shoot starting any time last Wednesday, and the assignment will be posted this Wednesday, hence the contest will also start this Wednesday. I sure hope I got that right lol

                            Hi all
                            one more suggestion ...

                            In the contest thread, I saw we are posting both the pictures and the comments on the previous entries. How about we have two different threads for Entry Pictures and the Comments for a mini contest? I believe this will help anyone to easily identify the entry pictures and also post comments regarding the entries or the theme itself.

                            just my 2 cents

                              I think it would be too confusing to separate out entries and comments into separate threads (and you know people would put things in the wrong place!). It is easier to have them together and then use the search tool to pick out the entries (using the "assignment: beach" tag).

                                Hi,
                                I am new to digital photography and if one of you could briefly explain about EXIF data please, and about the thread since I am living in Botswana, there is no beach and no summer at this time. Is it possible to plan for a more general topic where all can participate, if willing to?
