All right everyone - one more day for any discussion and changes to the proposed rules for the month.

I believe questions asked have been answered - if one was missed please shout out so we can get an answer for you.

It begins. In just a couple of days.

Are you ready?

I had the same thoughts - as it is quite a challenge and time consuming as fons states
But it is quite fun too and a tradition - please join friends :)
You're so damn right, Morten! Let's make it happen

OK - I'll be out of town 2 - 5 October. I will have camera gear and should be able to get some images, but not sure about interwebs access. May have to wait until I return to view/ respond to everyone's posts and post my own.

Since there has been no further discussion on the rules, I'll change them to "final" when I get back later today. And I'll update the thread with a list of participants. :)

This sounds like great fun but sadly, I am not going to have the time this year. I hope I can finish my 52 week project as I am mostly done with it but I fear life is getting in the way again. Next year I hope to be able to do this.

Hello all

Is it too late to join?

I attempted this last year but it went belly up (translation = went badly:(). I lasted until day 17. I was travelling in Germany & Switzerland for work, Portugal for 2 days for holiday and 1 week in Spain for the rest of the holiday. I was using (or trying to) a borrowed D90 with a 50mm 1.8D. I was shooting JPEG in camera and trying to post from my iPad. Irregular internet access. I got fed up. I also felt crap. 2 weeks later I had a cholecystectomy (gall bladder removal). Haven't shot much since and haven't visited the cafe since. My avatar has disappeared too!!??

I would like to go player with:-
35mm 1.8G (fx)
50mm 1.8G
85mm 1.8G
Tokina 100mm 2.8 Macro
300mm f/4 AF-S D

Mightn't use all of them but keeping my options open.

Is it one body?

If so I'll use D700
If not I'll use the D810 also

Kind regards,

Eamonn.
Ireland.
