I've had an idea. We do see lots of similar photos on here damsels, kingfishers, moody filtered landscapes, robins, moons etc so how about I set a challenge for you to photograph the unphotographed? (or at least a photo/style/subject that has never appeared on ePHOTOzine)

Normally in these forum style comps you'd have 24 hours to shoot, but I'll give you until Friday evening.

Take a photo between now and Friday, post it up in the gallery on Friday and put a link to it from here. Keep it clean!

Then, over the weekend, members can rack their brains to remember if they've seen a similar photo uploaded on ePHOTOzine galleries in the past and if you can find one the new entry is disqualified.

I'll pick a winner on Monday.

No prize just a bit of fun.

Novel idea, Pete. I like it.

Have you, by any chance, been thinking about other things beside The Book? Wink

Stop having "ideas" Pete, and get on with the book (I'd like my copy before Christmas).

This is a good idea - gets people looking at the gallery more.
Recently I've been having a detailed look at the dedicated XPan Gallery and discovered many excellent images, some were loaded before I joined and therefore been missed

Anyway THIS is the closest I can find so far.

Alas, have not got the time to go through 14,500+ pages each week !

Here's my effort. Not the best - but I don't shoot digi - so had to find something from the recent archives.

I doubt it's unique - and in my defence, I liked the geometry......but off you go - find me a similar one Smile

Just helping keep Pete's thread alive Smile

I think this is the point where Boyd's oft-promised nude self portrait could come into it's own.....Wink
