February 2011 photo challenge - Pets in Black and white
 
Tomorrow is the 1st of the shortest month of the year

what's the challenge for February??

Traditional?? love/Red/Hearts?? or something off the wall, different??

Well it might be the shortest month in days but sounds like it is going to be the longest in rotten weather...the way it is going to start out anyway!

So....more snow themes!????

Bump. I'm out of ideas besides the trite Valentines.

Bump...Bump....

ideas any one??

Marko help!!!! we need ideas!!

What about the opposite of what valentines is all about... how about heartbroken pets??? You know... the pics we have where they just look soooo pitiful

Marko can we use your podcast from your photography site,

what about black and white??

[SIZE="1"]has it been done??[/SIZE]

Thx for the suggestions Breeze and others!
Pets in black and white has not been done and i think it's a [B]good[/B] challenge - buuuuuut not sure all the members know how to convert their images to black and white..... (If members are interested to know about the podcast Breeze referred to please feel free to Pm me)

Here's a few other suggestions:

- Pets in red
- Mealtime
- pets doing tricks

Given that it's Feb 1 today please feel free to support any of the suggestions in this thread - OR suggest something completely new. I'll check back late tonite or early tomorrow morning and the theme with the most support will be this month's challenge.

Thx!

Marko

I like the heart broken look idea. My pets are masters at this expression and so I'm sure are other people's pets. Capturing it in a photo would be a fun challenge.

Marko[/QUOTE]

oops I was thinking more of the lines in "gray scale"
:o

I like the black and white and the heartbroken themes :D

Yeah, the B&W and "heartbroken" ones are both good... personally, I think the latter is more challenging; B&W is a one-click tweak in most image-editing apps.

black and white or grayscale means the same to me so i think we are talking about the same thing.

yup i can pull off both heartbroken and black and white,,could probably get black and white heartbrokens..

I already have a heartbroken in mind... and it's... well, the dog is black and white, even if the picture isn't :)

I'll let this go till tomorrow morning.....

It's looking like a toss up between heartbroken and black and white.

If a few more people would state a particular preference - that would be great!



thx!!
Marko

Black and white sounds cool to me.

LOL - By my count there is 50/50 support between BW and heartbroken. SCM's vote brought it to a tie.

Soooo - I guess I'll make the final call....and I'll choose Black and white simply because I think it would be a hard challenge for the cat people. Dogs really ARE the champs of that heartbroken look.

and that said....you COULD always do a twofer and show heartbroken in black and white.

thanks for the input everyone - merging suggestion posts now.

marko February 2nd, 2011 09:12 AM

Hi everyone - suggestion posts merged and for this month, all the submitted photos should be in black and white. The challenge is Pets in Black and white.

Ok then who will post first? :D (and will it be a black and white shot of a dooger with a heartbroken expression :D )

Thx!
Marko

i'm good at photo editing :)but there is a website that is pretty easy to use and has lots of editing you can do, its a pretty cool website!!! you guys should check it out :)

[url]www.picnik.com[/url]

BMDLuver February 2nd, 2011 12:06 PM

lol I would if I could get a decent photo. My kids (8&9) do a better job than I do. :loser:

Soundy February 2nd, 2011 12:37 PM

+1 for Picnik - the interface is a little convoluted and clunky, but it does do a LOT of neat stuff. It can read, edit, and re-post your photos directly from Facebook, too.

I was meaning its good for people who cant go on photoshop or gimp and do this sort of thing, its good for someone who wants to do a little bit of editing to there pictures for things like this or even personal use... Just ment it to be a fun easy photo editing program that everyone can use!! :)

BMDLuver February 2nd, 2011 02:16 PM

so then if I can ever get a worthwhile photo I will try it! Thanks

Larca February 2nd, 2011 02:53 PM

Not sure if my pics will show up here, so I apologize if all that appears is codes.
