    Quoting John, who has no Internet access at this time. :eek::eek:

    Time to get started on a new topic.

    Dale, filling in for John

    Mine to start:
    Portrait Framing Turn your camera on it's side and see the world a bit differently.

    I also have an idea about posting images with no cropping. Post the full frame image and see what others have to say about cropping/framing to improve it. I'm stuck for a name right now. Full Frame sounds like FF cameras.

    I like portrait framing.

    One idea I was thinking about would be "Breaking the Rules"

    My thought was to post shots that broke conventional rules of photography but worked (and explain why you think they worked).

    Could also be interpreted as the subject matter of the photo.

    Current topics of interest are:

    Portrait Framing and

    Breaking the Rules

    There are over 100 views of this thread but only these two suggestions. The Challenge seems to pull some great photos on a consistent basis but the Topic Thread doesn't seem to reflect this interest. Any thoughts on this? Are people happy with the first two or three ideas or is the Challenge losing interest?

    Post your comments and suggestions. Remember to vote for the topic you like the most.

    Portrait framing isn't quite doing it for me. I already shoot a lot of portrait images. Also, we would have to make an unenforceable "must be shot in portrait rather than photoshopped into portrait" rule.

    I really like breaking the rules. It's very consistent with my personality.
