As we progress toward the end of 2013, I and the mods have been working behind the scenes on the 2014 competition/challenge plans
As announced previously, the 2014 Photo of the Week themes are going to be photographic genre based, and we also said we were going to tie the member challenges into the competition themes. So what will happen in 2014 will be, for example. Sport will be one of the Photo of the Week themes. A couple of week's before that competition starts, the member challenge will be Sport. This will give those who do not generally shoot Sport the chance to practice and then get some feedback, before the competition starts.
Interspersed between these photo of the week themes will be Open (non themed) competitions.
We now have created the Photo of the Week themes order for 2014, and thus we have some of the Member Challenge themes. However the weeks we have an Open Photo of the Week, we need some themes for the Member Challenge.
Therefore, I am asking you, the members; Please use this thread to list some ideas for themes that we could use for the 'off-genre' member challenge weeks. We will then choose a selection of ideas to add to the 2014 weekly members challenges.
We had thought to do some based on camera functions, if you like that idea (shutter speed over 1/1000th second, shutter speed slower than 1 second, High ISO (over 6400) etc. So feel free to suggest ideas along those lines, but we are open to all suggestions.
