My wife and I are going to China in the fall and we don't want to lug DSLRs and lenses and I don't want to take my Leica film gear on the trip. We both want to upgrade our digital point and shoots.…Continue

I'd like anyone with knowledge and experience in photography to give me feedback about the quality of this photograph.  I'm asking a lot but if you could grade it (A, A-, B+, etc.) and tell me what I…Continue

Excellent suggestions, Nick. And thanks for your offer to help. (I may need to take you up on that eventually). I've pretty much got it ready to roll, but have had so much on MY own "9 to 6 list", that It's been difficult to give this contest the attention it deserves. Stay tuned though. The guidelines will be posted (and emailed to you) TODAY! I think you're all going to like it... at least I hope you will!

Hi Bruce,
sorry i've been silent recently, got lots of my 9 to 6 tasks to do!
1. Access to the contest - i agree with you that there should be no limits for other AoM members to enter! However you might think of some limits - how many pics submitted per person.
2. I think you shoud make categories within the contest - Portraits, Kids, Still Life, Fashion, Art\Conceptual etc. The idea here is that for example portraits and still life pics should be judged separately. One should not compare people and nature photography against each other, it's just wrong:) If you make categories you can also set the rule that one person can submit only one pic per category. Otherwise there will be just too many pics, don't you think?
3. Technically i would have made a separate profile for the contest (like the person's profile) with slideshows. Is there a voting widget on AoM by the way? How do we count votes?

Let me know if you need any help with the contest!
Nick

Looking forward to seeing tons of pictures from Germany Cooper and CONGRATS on your first camera ... WAY COOL of your Grandmother !!!!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone. Well, I just received my first camera as a gift from my grandma, a brand new Canon 500d.
So far I really like photography but I don't have any pictures I'm proud enough of to post up yet. In two weeks I am going to Germany for a month and plan on taking a lot of pictures. I make sure to put the best in here when I get back.

Thanks Mike. Thats' what I need... everyone's "two cents"!
Comment by Mike Walker on May 26, 2009 at 7:35am
My two cents on the photo contest...I think if you limit it to the current group membership, you will see a greater increase in the membership then if it was open. Why join a group to participate in their fun if you don't have to? Mandatory , albeit free, membership doth hath it's privileges.

Thanks, Craig. I really appreciate that.

Well, I have to admit, Brett nailed that one on the head! thehuman, you've done a great job with this group keeping it alive and interesting!!!

Check this out!

It's a quote I lifted out of one of Brett's forum comments, where is gives the Photo Group a stroke or two. "We have a few groups that have done really well. The Photographer group is a perfect example of successful group. They're sharing photos, sending tips, and even planning a contest for the group. The success of the group is completely attributable to thehuhman. He's done a great job."
