    No. That analogy was to show that even though they are pictures taken for two different themes, they can still be put up against each other when voting over the quality of the photos.


    And even tough there is two different themes, the challenge is still the same for every participant. One theme may be easier than the other, but everybody have the choice to choose the "easiest".


    Come on, you know what I'm saying! :)

    :) You get my vote.

    At the end of the day, I'll try to think of an idea that fits one or the other, or both. I just wonder why, if we have multiple themes, we bother having any themes at all. We could just let each person pick his or her own theme and let everyone decide how the photographer best applied his or her photo to that theme.

    Oh get off that horse. However much I'd ever agree that you are quite right just let it go this one month. It'll happen once and then that's it. Take it as a challenge to your selective mind ;) It's one time for Petes sake. I can't help seeing what Bindi meant about us being pedantic. Isn't it enough that most on the photo forum keep replying to the articles with corrections to spelling and grammatical mistakes? :p
    Sometimes you have to choose whether you want an argument for the sake of the argument or because you indeed do feel the need for change. And yes that "you" includes me. Hypocritical? Yes very much. But tell me how anyone can be broadly-minded and state an opinion without being hypocritical.

    See what you did? You made me go all philosophical. Shame on you :p Just have both the cupcakes at once and enjoy it just this one time ;)

    Ok, I don't think that we should arugue over this too much. I understand that two themes is not optimal, but it makes the tie fair and it is just for this one month. Also, since we are allowed two entries I might suggest one on each theme. As for voting just vote for the the one that uses the theme chosen the best...I think that can still apply.

    Whoa, dude. Read my first sentence again. I'm not trying to start (or continue) an argument, I'm just giving my 2 cents. Feedback is good, right?

    I'll say it again. At the end of the day, I'll still go out and take photos.

    Can't upload .jpg's (again). It complains that it is not a .jpg while it obviously is. Any problems (e.g. size restrictions) I should be aware of?

    I had the same problem with my full sized picture, but a smaller one works.

    Number of threads and added pics match. There are 6 threads (one with 2 pics) and there have been 7 additions to the potm gallery. So I would say yes :)

    I guess this months themes was pretty hard.

    I think it's more a case of random taking its turn. Otherwise I have yet to understand what makes the key difference in themes to explain the numbers of submitted pictures.

    I would have loved to have shot, but I have had very little time this month. And the time that I had to shoot was spent on my latest thread....They were both fun themes. (yeah yeah I know I picked one.) But going back to work this month just killed my time....

    What what?? This can't be happening?! Now if it's closed on time as well I'll start getting suspicious.

    Only thing left to say then will be "47"
