    yes, I got my inspiration by looked out the window. but I think it can be a creative theme for a new contest.

    I like all these widescope themes, leaves room for creativity.

    Foggy might work, being change of seasons we've had fog here in Michigan recently...

    I'll throw out (w/o knowing if they've been done before):
    -long shadows
    -shallow/creative DOF
    -wet&organic (meaning not just water shots but how water/dew/etc enhances the image or becomes the focus point for the image)

    Warm and/or Cool would make a nice combo. Can be interpreted in many different ways.

    I like Warm and/or Cool (cold) also. So many interpretations possible. Not excited about foggy. It won't be foggy here for a couple more months. It was 101 here yesterday & high 90's today.

    I like warm/cold.

    Just for the heck of it I'll throw out a slightly random idea. Pick a room in the house. The challenge is to take pics in that room and that room only (preferably in the challenge period). The room could be one most every one has access to. The kitchen for example. It could be absolutely anything as long as it was taken in the kitchen and the photo conveyed that fact somehow (that it was taken in the kitchen).

    Just a weird thought on a rainy night :eek:

    Quite a while ago I had an odd thought too. Mine was Walkabout. You had to shoot in walking distance from your house or apartment.

    Hi, all.

    I will go through these topics tomorrow and list them with the "votes" they have received. Then we will be able to get the new thread started on time Sunday.
