A place to explore these ideas off the photography challenge thread
I like this idea a lot.
One challenge would be getting original resolution images suitable for print... Some originals will no-doubt have been lost so having flexibility with sizes would be necessary.
At an exhibition people could vote for best picture of the year? Choosing from the weekly winners and other memorable contributions. Some weeks there have been many great entries
@mi7rennie - could you update the original post?
I'm thinking a book might be good so we can do high quality prints. Print the winner large and maybe the 2nd and 3rd place images smaller. Or Maybe a full page print for the winner and on the other side of the spine all the weeks entries?
I'll update it this afternoon but I'm going to reach the attachment limit soon..... Might need another post mid thread with a link?
That could work....
The number of entries would change the layout though – some weeks there are 6, others there are 22.
The way I handle that in personal albums is to just use a random collage to suit the number of photos and aspect ratio and basically scale to suit.
So maybe left page could have the winner and over leaf could have a random collage of the rest.
Or left page could have the winner and runners up, then a collage on the other side.
in to this idea.
Meanwhile we could ask @lew_redd from lmnh if he'd be up to host an exhibition of some prints. Perhaps winners only. Or wait to launch the book there
What about a book/exhibition including photos that we post in both threads that are not involved with the challenge. They could be shortlisted b others or something else?
That would be fun too. I love seeing the work of all the forum photographers!
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
