Here is the official thread for our second Fortnightly Challenge. The topic is Texture(s), interpret that any way you like. Please remember the point of the challenge is to get out (or in), take photographs, and improve upon our skill sets. If you post pictures you have taken in the past, you only cheat yourself. Rules The rules are open for debate at any time although a consensus will be sought before making changes. The preference is to create a broad but flexible framework to work within. Submission rules: 1. Members must produce the artwork they submit (limit 3 images). 2. The photo(s) must be created during the challenge period. 3. Submissions should be posted in the challenge thread for that time. Comments/critique/discussion: 1. Discussion can begin at any point in the thread. 2. You are expected to give comments and critique images in the current thread if you submit images. 3. Comments, critiques and discussion most be constructive, objective and aimed at improving the quality of the artwork. The topic for this two week challenge is: Texture(s) The challenge will run from right now until 11:59PM CDT Aug 11. Challenge topics: 1. Suggestions for the bi-weekly's challenge are made in a single thread which will be set up two weeks before. 2. The challenge topic will be voted on by all members (although only those intending to submit pictures should vote). Lets have Fun!!!
