Dyxum Oktoberfest 2016 Exhibition

05 December 2016 - Posted by Micholand, in Challenges
Random Dyxum Oktoberfest Photo

As you probably are aware, Dyxum Oktoberfest is a one-month challenge where participants restrict themselves to shooting with one prime lens 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

Dyxum Oktoberfest 2016 Exhibition

Please do not hesitate to take a look - it is really worth spending those few minutes to check this outstanding collection. To whet your appetite - above you can see one of the exhibits selected at random from the series of great shots: day 1 photo by Snegren.

Voting process has just been started, so please feel free to jump to "Cam Memorial" Oktoberfest 2016 Voting Thread, check all the rules and cast your vote.

BTW, everyone is welcome to vote! Even if you didn't take part in the challenge. The more voters the better :-)

77 on October 19, 2016

This year we would like to do something special to remember our friend Cameron Hill (brettania) who passed away last December and who enjoyed special photo challenges tremendously.
He would have turned 77 on October 19th. So for that day every Dyxum member is requested to go out and take a picture with a theme of 7 (or 77, or 7777777), and we hope a lot of members will join with a picture for that day!
