    Arrow Weekly Photo Challenge - Anything Goes

    It is painful to watch this once active and vibrant discussion slowly fade away.
    Perhaps we (photographers) have simply "Lost Focus"*
    Unable to conjure the necessary creativity to devise a truly unique theme for this week, I challenge you to post anything you find:
    Pleasing
    Disturbing
    Playful
    Sharp
    Slick
    Quiet
    Loud
    Strong
    Soft
    Warm
    Lovely

    I believe ParkinT that we should turn these into monthly threads, that will give people time to think, shoot and return. Weeks just go by too quickly and even if one had it in mind to shoot a picture, it can often fall by the wayside.

    What do you think? Monthly Challenges from now on?

    EXCELLENT IDEA !
    That is the kind of innovative thinking this thread needs.

    We will begin (anew) when November arrives (next week).

    Perhaps one of the 'staff' who frequent this thread can make an announcement to help us promote the change.

    Wake me up when November comes..
    I agree with armchaircritic. Good idea.
    Maybe we should also encourage members to post what they've published elswhere (like flickr) simultanously here in this forum as own threads. Doesn't need to follow a theme. It's sad to come here and don't find any new posts.

    Here's my latest flickr upload:

    Hi WDG,

    We've got a 'share your photo galleries' thread in this board, but I think this is all we can do really, as we don't want to actively encourage self-promotion.

    I generally do pick things from Flickr and re-add them here on these challenge threads, I see no problem with anyone doing that.

    btw, nice pic

    ---

    So if we go with Monthly threads we need to have a bit more of a think about it. I've started a photography social group here on sitepoint some time ago, and I thought I invited you both, so perhaps we can discuss what we'd like to do in there?

    We can also think about including these monthly themes in the Community Crier, I'll chat to Shyflower about it when we've decided what we're doing.
