Oktoberfest 2019 "The Gallery"

Random Dyxum Oktoberfest Photo

As you probably are aware, Dyxum Oktoberfest is a one-month challenge where participants restrict themselves to shoot with one (or two) prime lens(es) only. Various additional restrictions are possible like pic-a-day (one has to shoot everyday), only B&W, no PP, etc. Generally you challenge yourself in a way that you see the most appropriate to you.
At the end of the challenge it turns out that there are really a lot of nice photos which Dyxum can (and should) boastfully show to the World - hence the idea of selecting the best photos from each participant and put them together as

Please do not hesitate to take a look - it is really worth spending those few minutes to check the gallery. To whet your appetite - above you can see one of the exhibits selected at random from the series of great shots: day 21 photo by bigsi.

Following a very late announcement of April Foolishness Special Exhibition we have another surprise for you - the long overdue announcement of the special exhibition for Dyxum Oktoberfest 2017!

I have to say that I'm always impressed with the overall quality of photos in Dyxum challenges. It does not matter if they come from experienced photographers (or even pros) or complete newbies - it is always pleasure to look at what everybody came up with. Dyxum Oktoberfest 2017 was no different and the special exhibition which has been announced today emphasizes this in excellent way.

It's really worth taking a look and drop a comment in the exhibition's thread:
