Photo Contest Topic : What Next?

Folks, I have had my say for deciding on the topics for the past two contests. Now, let's have an open forum and discuss the next one.

Also, do you like the board-wide announcement? Or should we limit it to the Arts & Media section? Or just a thread in the General Announcement forum?

Let me know

I would like to suggest macro, particularly because a bunch of people here are putting out great stuff in that category regularly. But truth be told it might be a little prohibitive given that you need special equipment for it.

Justice is judgement that is both fair and forgiving. Justice is not done until everyone is satisfied, even those who offend us. Justice is not only the way we punish those who do wrong but is also the way we try to save them.

Thanks for your suggestion Martin. But special effects/formats such as macro shots can be included under any topics. Making a contest solely for that would be limiting.

On the other hand, we can also open a Macro Photography thread in this forum.

I voted for "my place" I enjoy walking around and taking pics, and some of those turn out pretty nice.

I opted for 'seasons' as I have a really stupid idea I'd like to implement. Then, I realised another option would be more befitting of what I wish to submit!

It's ok. This is an open poll. Which option do you want to change to ILA?

Actually, could I keep it? 'Portraits' will probably come out on top, I guess. If 'the elements' were to make up ground, I'd accept that as my submission may come across as more creative.

Instead of voting again in a months or so time.. why not have "Portraits/People" as theme for the next contest, and after that one, we can do "my place", after that "The Elements" ? Just an idea.

That's it.

Topic for the March Photo Contest: People/Portraits *

This includes images of people, self-portraits or portraits of others, figures, crowds, mannequins ... as long as XT guidelines are observed.

You can begin submitting images in the following thread --

I discovered macro photography for me lately and I think it could be a great topic. I support your suggestion, Martin.
