Talk Thread Part II


This is the talk thread for the 2nd half of the challenge

A quick recap of the rules:


A chance to be creative with images inspired by song titles

  • Day 1: We gave you 10 different song titles.
                You had two weeks in which to plan, take and post your images that are inspired by those titles.
                There was a thread for each song title, and you posted a single shot for 5, 7 or even all 10 titles, some time within those two weeks.
  • Day 15: We've given you another 10 titles, and you have another two weeks to produce images inspired by those new ones

Feel free to be inspired by the song title in any way you choose; literally, figuratively, emotionally etc
Perhaps it's a line within the song or the story itself - tell us when you post so we can all share your vision and inspiration!
Just paint a picture and tell a story with your image that somehow ties in with the title


  • Just one image per title
  • Complete freedom of how you take or process the image; the aim is to illustrate the song title - how you do that is up to you!
  • You are free to use both A-mount and E-mount (NEX) equipment
  • Please state your EXIF data below your shot and especially the camera type for this Challenge
  • Optionally impose other restrictions on yourself to make it more challenging if you want, and list these when you sign up restricting lens, crop, processing etc

You are expected to comment on the photographs posted by others as this is a valuable part of the challenge for everyone.
This may be the most important rule of all, but the degree of commenting will vary right up to a few stars who will comment on every image.
Do what you're able, but the more the better and everyone's opinion counts - just remember the aim to be encouraging and helpful, even if critical.

Within the 'challenges' section of the forum, there will be:


  • A thread for each song title
  • An Outtakes thread for extra images that don't make it as your main selection
  • This talk thread for comments, feedback and general chatter
  • A 2nd thumbnails thread where all participants should post thumbnails of their photos linked to the posts containing big versions
  • A voting thread so between us we can pick our favourites from the challenge to display in a gallery


*** BONUS SONG ***
If you complete 3 of the titles given, then you are allowed to post 1 entry in the *** Bonus Song *** thread
If you complete 5 of the titles given, then you are allowed to post 2 entries in the bonus thread
If you complete 7 of the titles given, then you are allowed to post 3 entries in the bonus thread
If you complete all 10 of the titles given, then you are allowed to post limitless entries in the bonus thread

Don't put yourself down, Dudger.
All input is valuable.
Your "lack of experience" also makes you not so stuck in ways "you're supposed to think".
Alas, you will bring some different perspectives than the "know-it-alls" ;)

Dudger, I agree with Lazer. I used to think the same as you but have recently started commenting a little more on some images here and there and I actually think its helping with my learning process. If you feel comfortable give it a go, nobody will say you're wrong as you won't be, there is no right or wrong, it's down to interpretation.

I am going to try to find time to leave some comments for this challenge too. That's my main problem at the moment.

@John

Yeah, that's exactly the same thing I've noticed. Commenting is helping you understand and learn a lot of new things about photography.

John, @Dudger, @Petaar - +1 for the commenting; I've always thought you improve by this route as well so keep it up!

Best regards, Neil.
My Mantra: "Comment on other's work as you would wish to have yours commented upon". Go on - it's fun!

Agreed...I started off with Oktoberfest and thought I couldn't really contribute anything of value, but I found that by looking at pictures, it helps me take better pictures in return.

"Something" - very clever interpretation Jet, I may emulate it

Did it take you long to devise the song lists?

I am sorry.. I don't understand your question... (and google translator is not helping)

Do you mean how long we took to make this list?
Or how I interpret it?

I meant did it take you a long time to decide on which songs to include in the list of ten.
