Alright, here's to a new thread with new beginnings. Here's how this is going to work.
1) This is a photography thread, not a random funny picture thread.
So nature shots, sure. Demotivational posters, no.
2) Post up only one picture per day.
Since this is typically difficult to judge based on the different timezones, a general rule of thumb is going to be 24 hours after your last post.
3) Discussion, critique, opinions, and advice are of course welcome, but keep it civil and within the forum rules.
I encourage constructive critique, because we can't really grow as photographers without input. Try to keep any comments about photos in depth, don't just say "wow that's really cool", explain why. Also, if someone specifically wants critique or advice, feel free to ask.
4) Posting camera/lens/photo specs is preferred, but not required.
Obviously, you aren't going to have access to these specs for all photos, or remember for that matter. For example, I have a bunch of 35mm photography from a few years back, and I can't even remember which of my lenses I used. So basically, post specs up when you have access to them.
5) You may post pictures you have previously posted in the other photo thread if you so choose.
I noticed with the other thread, there wasn't as much critique as there was just photos. So feel free to post up any of those photos (obviously one at a time!) here.
6) Large shots are encouraged WITHIN REASON.
A 1200px wide limit for shots posted in this thread. If you have a shot you'd like to share that's larger than that, provide a link to the full sized image instead of actually posting the image in this thread. This way with those shots you want to show off detail, we can still view them without breaking the forums too bad.
7) Monthly themes are a work in progress.
My thinking is the first week of each month (or the last week of each month, whichever works), there could be a specific theme set, to keep things fresh and fun. For right this second, we'll just keep it regular.
So now all that stuff is out of the way, have fun!
**If you have an idea for a theme, or multiple themes, send me a PM. I'm going to keep a list of possibilities. You can also PM me any ideas you may have for the thread, this is as ongoing project of sorts.**
