Cafe Challenge #37 - "FRIENDS" - Topic Thread

Discussion in 'Challenge and Contests Forum' started by Graeme, Apr 8, 2007.

  1. Welcome to Cafe Challenge #37

    It's an honour for me to host this challenge and I hope many of you will find the time and creativity to enter a photograph!​

    I'd also like to thank Michael (MCS) for his wonderful handling of Challenge #36!

    The topic for this Challenge will be:​


    The dictionary describes "Friend" as the following:

    ".....a person known well to another and regarded with liking, affection and loyalty."

    You can interpret this anyway you like...............:smile: ​

    The Challenge will start now and end on Saturday 21st April 2007 at 18.00hrs utc/gmt.

    To avoid a time discussion please see the below link!

    Good luck everyone, but most importantly............. HAVE FUN! :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:


    1. Every participant is allowed one picture per challenge.

    2. The picture has to be taken between the submission start and end date.
    This is to make it a "Challenge" and not just another "Best
    Picture Contest"

    3. The posted picture must remain unaltered, once posted.
    But the text of the participation may be edited/changed, as often as
    necessary (for possible exceptions contact the Challenge Leader)!

    4. Pictures may be processed/edited and worked on, in post production
    before submitting them, but the main picture/content must have been
    taken during the submission dates.

    5. Somewhat controversial pictures are permitted, but please use your
    judgment and keep it within reason. ( Note that this community should
    remain suitable for all age groups )

    6. If there are any questions or obscurities the Challenge Leader is the
    person to appeal and to decide.


    Further Guidelines and Suggestions
    for Participation:

    - Please feel free to give your picture a title, and even explain it a little!

    - When posting the submission it is might be welcomed, to share some
    Information about the shot. This could be done by posting the EXIF-data or
    just sharing the equipment used or the exposure. For example:

    Shot_on_Date, Focal_Length, Aperture, Shutter_Speed, ISO, Priority,
    Metering, Compensation, Flash

    - Try to keep the submission at 965 pixels (extreme formats,
    like panoramas, may require more). Just keep in mind the cafe server resizes
    pictures larger than 965 pixels and provides a link to the original size.

    - To save even more bandwidth, it might be reasonable to adjust the
    compression (while saving it as jpg), to keep the file size under 500kb
    (jpg-compression: 60%-80% may be optimal for most pictures).
    This should keep loading times to a minimum.
