Weekly Assignment

Apologies for the delay in posting the winners from the Holiday Decorations assignment. Over the Christmas holiday our servers decided that they deserved a break, so we were experiencing some technical difficulties. However, without further delay we have the winners for TravisRichins‘ single ornament. Again, it’s a nice simple shot. The reflection helps add interest, and it was bright, cheerful, and colourful. Well done everyone!

Christmas BokehHolidaysWe also started (and continued) our Holiday Food assignment. Because of the forum problems, this assignment has been extended for a week and now runs from 15 December 2010 – 5 January 2011. So if you haven’t gotten your entries in, you’ve still got time! As always, a quick reminder of the rules. First, your photo needs to have been taken between 15 December 2010 – 5 January 2011. Second, your post must include the words “Assignment: Holiday Food” and the date the photo was taken in order to show that it is eligible for the contest. Finally, your EXIf should be intact, and it’s useful if you can include some of the main points such as camera, lens, shutter speed, aperture, ISO, etc. Our next assignment will be “Best of the Year”. For this upcoming assignment we want you to pick what you think is your best shot from 2010 and share it with us. Maybe it’s one of your assignment photos, maybe it’s a photo that you took that you’re incredibly proud of. Whatever it is, don’t forget to enter your best in our next assignment.

Hot Threads

  • What Are Your 2011 Goals?: So, as we ring in the new year around the world, the thought of new years resolutions may come to mind. But what kind of photographic resolutions are you making for the new year? And what are your goals? Come share them with us over on the forums.
  • How Do You Feel About Being Photographed?: As photographers, sometimes it seems that we like to be anywhere but in front of the camera. So, how do you feel about it when a stranger photographs you (if you notice)? Come share your thoughts over in the forums.
  • What Would You Do?: One of our ongoing threads on the forums is the What Would You Do challenge. In this challenge, one person submits a photo and everyone else is tasked with editing it and telling us how they got from the original photo to the photo that has been posted. Whether you’re new to post-processing or you could practically create a photo without a camera, you’re welcome to participate in WWYD.

  • I have one doubt on the rules, What exactly means that the EXIF must be intact?
    does it means that no post procesing is allowed at all? or what is allowed and what is not?
    Thankyou I hope I might take part of some challenge some other day.
    Best Regards

    The EXIF must be intact in the post is what they mean I believe. I don’t think there is a rule saying no post processing can be done to a image.
