    Nice shots! Had I known you where at Uni today, I could have taken you down to see our stages.

    Puckmonkey, really nice work with the Bananassassination series and Digging for Dinosaurs , very clever, all of them, it is always fun to see what you come up with. As for the grain, I had a method that was working, but I'll have to check it on my work machine. You could also take a picture of something like clear sky with a high speed film with nice grain, de-saturate, then lay that on your image with the layer blending mode set to multiply or soft light.

    I hear you Mike. I have/had a few ideas but just cant find the time to do the leg work required. And like a previous poster mentioned, if you wait too long to execute and post, the chances the idea will be shared/realized/acted on by someone else, becomes greater.

    2 ideas I had last week have been done by someone else already.

    I could probably post my pics using the same concept/technique as a previously posted shot BUT doing that waters down the effect/work of my pic and unfairly does the same to the original poster's work.

    I have too much respect for the work of others to do that.

    That being said, lets see if I can whip something out this weekend...

    That would have been cool! I was kinda on limited time, though. Maybe next time!

    I kinda disagree with that. If I can learn something from someone doing something different with an idea or technique I had used, I'd welcome the opportunity. That'd be the most advanced form of constructive-criticism, having someone willing to take an idea they saw here and work it in a different way, making the idea as much their own as anyone's.

    I don't have the artistically-innovative mind of PuckMonkey or ValleyFan, but I think that's something that can be learned from others.

    I think you misunderstood what I was saying Glenn. None of us invented the techniques we are using. Its all been done before by someone. Thats not what I'm talking about at all.

    Im talking about images that subject/technique/composition wise are too similar. Case in point, After reading the new challenge criteria last Saturday, I took a series of pics Tuesday. I didn't read the thread again until today. As I was looking at the submissions made over the week, I noticed the subject and technique I used are are almost exactly like one of Puckmonky's already submitted photos. IMHO, it would be detrimental to me for appearing to "copy" PM and it would detrimental to PM because there would be a direct comparison made between the 2 photos, hence "water down the shot pool."

    No biggie. I just need to be faster with the posts...

    This Challenge is tough, that way. I found myself trying to think of ways to "set up" a shot of primaries and really coming up with nothing in terms of super-creative stuff. I had a lot of fun walking around yesterday and looking for primary colors and shapes, though. It kind of freed my head a bit from constraints I subconsciously assigned to this Challenge.

    I'd suggest doing that. Go find a colorful neighborhood area around you and look for stuff that fits with this Challenge. Those kinds of place are springing up all over the place, lately. I even got some shots of things outside the Challenge parameters that turned out great.

    Cool. Finding time is harder than finding the shot right now for me. I have to sneak in little bits of photography here and there.

    One thing I meant to bring to your attention last week Glenn is you may want to adjust the minimum submission requirement for the challange. In challange #1, we had 23 series entries. Only 9 participants qualified with more than 6 photos. 14 (including myself) actually didnt qualify because we didnt make the 6 shot minimum. Maybe a 2 shot minimum/8-10 shot maximum?

    Too many ideas, not enough time.

    Here are a couple that I managed to get at work. I've got some ideas to try tonight, assuming I can find the time.












    Here's another shot, it's still centered horizontally, but it's a bit more interesting.



    I don't think I'm going to have the time to do any of the cropping that was suggested on the mixer shot, but when I get to it, I'll post it for your viewing pleasure.

    I took a flash picture of this artist and as I walked away I noticed the heavy lighting coming from the left side there
    and asked him to pose for another with the flash off. I'm glad I did.


    I should crop the left side but besides that...
