sounds fun, i'm in.

peter, I would interpret "subject" very broadly, it could be five photos of one cat doing different things, or five photos of your neighbourhood, favourite beach, abandoned building etc etc. just not five photos, one of a cat, one of a car, another of a... etc etc etc

Fun idea - count me in! This could be quite therapeutic as I'm editorially challenged. Particularly after shooting digital. Can I enter 5,000 and let you select the 5?

I'm in. Need to do more shooting... My freezer of film is thinking of filing for a separation if I neglect it any further.

Don't know when the competition ends - a date would be useful rather than a 'celebration'.
And to recap - photos taken on or after September 24th 2012 are eligible?
An idea on how we are going to present our 5 photos might be useful. How about we each start a thread with the same title, but ending with our 'name' like:
'Need a Photo Challenge - jesse1dog' ?

I think the images should be all in one thread, and there should be a gentleman's agreement not to quote pictures in replies.

and can the subject be an abstract term like e.g. peace, fear, anger,... too? or a widespread object like a river?
sry for complicating things...
I have the same question.

Subject meaning a single flower with five photos of the flower? Or subject being nature with five photos of any scene involving nature...?

I'm in...regardless.

Just a suggestion, Peter. If you do submit a cat series, limit it to the one you truly love. Not just some stray cat down the street, or... God forbid,... someone else's sweet little kitten. This is not that kind of forum.

Never posted an image (or five) with any photo forum. I would probably have to get my computer nerd son to assist with it. Seems like anytime I try to do anything new to me on a computer it never works.

As somewhat of a LUF vagrant finding a home here, one of the things I miss is the "challenges" section at the bottom of their forum.
I was just thinking of them the other day and check in on them from time to time.
It is excellent to see one here and it would be nice to see them stay!

i would never take any advice about cats of one of these old men on such dark places like a forum for photography. when on such a sullen place an old man comes to me and wants to speak about kitties,- i just turn around and run... run for my life!

Could we not open a gallery for the pictures? As in past challenges, or would that be too much of an ordeal for those not familiar with the Gallery upload function?

Oh yeah! I was considering a new somethingy like this, since I'm approaching the 6,000 post mark and sometimes all of a sudden feel like giving something back to the forum whenever some random 'milestone' appears, but this time I'll happily join in with this one, Joe!

I got me a Tamron BBAR 35-80mm zoom lens and the D3100 is loving it, so I might even submit digital shots!

I'm always up for a photographic challenge; I'm in.

True that RFF doesn't seem too interested in images as of late.

I'm in, but I might be a little late. I'm still recovering (but rapidly) from hip replacement. And I don't shoot much digital, could make an exception here though.

Helen, we could use refined rules if you like:

"Lucky 5", one camera, one lens, one film

What do you think ?

by way of a bump...

please feel free to discuss your process as you move along...trials and tribulations.
my plan, so far, is to stick to b&w imagery...maybe a mix of film and digital but that will be decided more on the images than initial intent.
the subject is still up in the air...i mainly have to permanent projects that i concentrate on so maybe i need to go back to old things, like landscapes or portraits or perhaps something or someplace i don't normally shoot...even if it's just a different part of town.

My plan will hopefully get into action tomorrow.
The local community garden near me has working days on Saturdays. Thought i might walk up in the morning and see if anything takes my eye for a series.

I have another idea up my sleeve i have wanted to do for a while now if the above fails.

By the way i have never gone out to actually shoot an series of images nor do i really have any images with a common subject so with any luck this will be my first "series"
