Okay everybody, this weeks topic took me awhile to decide but I think that we can get creative, Pairs of Two, thats two objects/people/whatever that you would see come in a pair. (just to clarify that lol) Have fun!
I believe that if we are back on schedule according to the rules that the poll will open this tuesday? June 19th. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
READ THE RULES
1. Only one picture per contestant.
2. No previously used material. All photos must be fresh and never displayed on any gallery / thread.
3. The winner of the last poll will set the next topic; if the same person stands as the winner two times in a row, he or she must choose another user to present the next topic
4. Enhancements of the picture ARE allowed in terms of color management, curves, levels, etc. Adding elements in the photo / brushing / anything that diverts into photomanipulation shall not be accepted.
5. No voting for your own picture.
6. The challenge starts thursday, poll opens tuesday and closes thursday. the winner starts a new post on the photo forum that is named "The Photo challenge - the chosen topic".
7. The poll shall be opened tuesday evening.
8. In the event of a tie in the polls, the person who created the challenge casts the tie breaking vote.
9. The winner has until 18:00/6:00 pm (GMT +2) thursday, after he or she has won to present the next topic, if the winner fails to do so. the topic will be presented by the 2nd place person on the poll

Idk about everyone else but I sorta like having more than half a week to come up with a picture... Maybe it's just me though and everyone else wants to keep it moving quicker.
I like it being quicker because it feels like it takes forever having over a week to do it and things kinda of seem to die and I get antsy lol, just my outlook from the quicker perspective
Your Lovely Italian Pirate Queen
Yeah I can see where you're coming from there too... I have no say in it really anyway so it doesn't matter too much (and I have an idea or 2 already, so now it's just a matter of taking the picture(s)...)
The layout used to be worse, didn't have the weekend to do it in. We also tried a weekend specific challenge (I was a supporter of the idea) but that just fell flat on its face.
As for being weekly, I think it works quite well, the current format is fine. You have Friday - Tuesday basically, maybe squeeze something in on Thursday. This means that you have Before Weekend, During Weekend, After Weekend with Wednesday as polling day. So what you can't do before the weekend maybe you can do during or after it, and all the other little combinations.
Anywayz, this belongs in the OMGz about the poll. So just give it some airing then it'll be moved over there.
Just to clarify...
All photos must be fresh and never displayed on any gallery / thread
I have a shot I did last weekend I'd LOVE to use, but I posted it Monday on another site. Are you referring to never being used in a thread/gallery on CA or are we requiring completely fresh material that's never been posted before anywhere?
The idea is to preferably encourage photographs that were taken specifically for this challenge.
So you set out with the idea of 'pairs' in mind.
That's the root of the rule, and so it would imply don't use it if ever used before. That's the way I see it at least, well, that's what it says.
The solution here would be to post the photo in your personal thread as 'the one I'd have really liked to use'. After all, isn't it more fun to go out and try and create something new?
After all, isn't it more fun to go out and try and create something new?
Shit...of course! That's the whole point of these anyways, right? Remind me not to wake up and post anything before my first cup of coffee... my brain doesn't seem to function.
I won't post the photo on this thread, but in case you want to know what I was thinking.... *LINK*

Well thank you kindly. I'll see what I can come up with new this weekend... I like the topic.
nice photo brett, i for one would like to keep the format as is. There have been a lot of changes to get it this popular and working ever week. if its not broke, don't fix it
LOL, damn Brett - that's a mighty nice pair of two...
Good luck for your fresh find!
this'll be a fun one to try ^^
btw brett. added you to my friendlist on Myspace if you dont mind
Well, I hope this doesn't go outside the rules concerning manipulation... I bumped the saturation on this one down quite a bit. Other than that though
Well I thought about it... But the way I took the picture, it would've been backwards since it's in a mirror right?
Yeah I was sorta trying to go for that in a subtle way (since you can see the backs of the cards, so it's like 2 pairs...)
I had another idea, and I might still try it out if I get any time before Tuesday... This was all I could come up with so far though
damb!! to stole my idear!! from the inside of my brain!
well, i went out today, 1'st day in ages with al my kit, I didnt take one photo..nothing at all...not a sasage.
Tomorrow is a new day. And today wasn't a complete waste of time, i found a good place to shoot storms....there were alot of lighting struck trees up there though so im not entirely sure its a good idear
Went out on the lake today... I guess the idea is pretty obvious, but here you go.

Hmmm, perhaps the deadline should be extended a little while, to give people some more time and have some more entries show up... just a thought...
i went out again today to have a go at this. My SD card went bad and will now no longer read in the camera, thats a 2gb SD card in the bin.... what are the chances of that?
Someone out there doesn't want you taking photos...
Fingers, pretty awesome photo. As for Kurdt, I think so too. I intended to get a photo for this challenge, but alas... I'm still too lazy.
Who thinks we should extend it (Most likely Tuesday.)?
Maybe a short little extension. I was shooting all weekend and came up with nothing (for this challenge).
i would like a extension on this one if thats ok?
im not having a lot of luck of late
Ah, so what I suggested in the beginning is what everyone's wanting now. I'm a prophet! hahaha jk I don't really care either way
well, there are only 2 entry's, and i think its a bad week for some people with school, uni/ and the weather other here has been really really bad
