    I like "beauty in the ugly" but, as usual, I can be good with anything. I do think I'd like to stay away from B&W right now after "Noir" was the POTW theme 2 weeks ago. "Edible" would be great so we can post pictures of veggies for Simon's benefit. :D:D:D

    I got my Mac back - looks brand new.

    Have no camera except to borrow a point and shoot.

    Most importantly - I have no real time. I think "Picture Postcard" would encourage the most entrants but will be happy to see others. Just no veg. :eek:

    I'll throw a vote for "Beauty in the Ugly" because it would take some thinking to come up with something.

    To be honest I'd be interested in true "Black and White" simply because it's something I'd like to get better at. I can turn any picture B&W but I'd like to learn more about what makes a good B&W from the start.

    Some really good suggestions... hard to decide.

    I'm going to go with Picture postcard though
