    Yah I think the idea was partly to be able to post to Flickr so that it hosts the images for free. The other thing is that it gives the opportunity to moderate out any images that don't comply with the guidelines of each challenge as well as keeping the challenge threads to a minimum length by keeping non-participants from commenting or critiquing (i.e. spamming the thread).

    We could post the rules of each challenge at the top of a thread here and then if we could get someone to moderate the thread well enough, it could work the way rinkrat suggests it just as easily as it could work on flickr.

    I think it's a cool idea. I'm a total newbie DSLR shooter, though (got a Canon Digital Rebel XT with a 28-135mm lens with rewards points). I like taking shots, though, and could use any critique and education (even very basic, basic stuff) you guys would be up for sharing.

    I like RR's idea of doing it all on LGK. I'm not so sure about having so many shots, though....seems like the thread would just get excruciatingly long, and it's harder to critique 24 shots from each photographer than say, 1 or 2.

    Are there ground rules? E.g. all manual settings, autofocus or manual focus, etc.?

    Yeah I think each guy should edit out his best stuff for the thread and if you want to have a Flickr account with a bunch of pics then just add a link to send people there for critique. That way we would have a taste of the best of the best here onsite. If people interrupt, I'll moderate out any surplus static or criticism.

    Sounds good to me. I'll just use the Flickr group for people who need a place to upload all the photographs, then.

    One more thing:

    Can I get the thread stickied (when I get a chance to make it) so that it doesn't get buried?

    re: subject
    Why not let each participant choose a subject on a rotating basis just like a book or wine club?

    re: hosting
    I think one site for every one is best for one stop shopping and image control will all be the same...

    Long time lurker to this thread...

    Like some others, I don't have a DSLR (Though I want to get one sometime soon - Still debating on which entry level would be best, cost wise, glass wise, etc (Though leaning towards Nikon) - I only have a Canon S2 IS, but would be interested in participating. Have a Photobucket account, but will sign up for Flickr as well (Unless of course it's decided to do it here on LGK, unless you have to be a member of Team LGK?).

    As for the subject matter...Like SirJW's idea. But also some of the ones that FBJ and ValleyFan came up with.

    Lot's of great photography in this thread btw..

    It's easy enough for any Joe Blow to set up a free Flickr account so let's let each person determine their own hosting. There's no need for a community account. I'd like to keep any LGK related activities here instead of spreading it out all over the net. It's easy enough to find a spot to host your images these days. Or you could join Team LGK and host them here. (Just a reminder )

    Ahh I get it. Sorry, Mike. Forgot about that.

    Okay. Well, I'll come up with the first challenge thread today. Is everyone okay with doing a new one every two weeks with a minimum of 6 captures posted by each participant and a maximum of 12?

    Also, I say we should let ValleyFan pick the first challenge theme (if he sees this and gets back to me today). If everyone's okay with that, that is. Maybe we can do something like 'the guy who picked the current challenge selects the guy to choose the next?' Maybe base the decision on which person's images most closely follow the current challenge's theme?

    Best-in-thread decided by one person. That person posts the photographer's name and sends that person a PM asking him to decide on the next theme and PM me his decision so I can write up the next challenge's thread. If the new theme isn't chosen within three days, I get to pick it (that way things keep going without stalling).

    Cool?

    Sam,

    GREAT stuff!

    Explain to me what a "single shot HDR" is, though.
