I had a look at this week's competition entries and decided the first (and so far only) picture was by JR (without hovering over the image).

I am not sure why it struck me as a JR type of image

What does anyone else think

Only four entries so far in this week's competition, is it due to the celebrations and you didn't have the time or the will to take photos or have I chosen a subject that is not inspiring? If so I am sorry, but I am sure many of you have a photo to submit... Come on!

The subject choice is fine, but it meant that there was only one time slot for the photos to be taken and many people will have been busier celebrating, so it probably cuts down the options.

Perhaps some are just emerging from their various parties now...there's time yet.
Best regards, John

hope that's OK?

Did no-one have a New Year's Eve party?

I was at Birdland and could have taken some nice shots of Hilary Kole, the singer or the band but I thought that cameras were not allowed. When I got there lots of people were taking pictures, although only with P&S cameras. Not sure what reaction I would have got with the K10D, grip and DA* 50-135mm...

It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head. Henri Cartier-Bresson
Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Not sure exactly why or how, but I can often spot John's photos before checking out who took them. That is not a bad thing, but I wish I could put my finger on why!

Best wishes, Kris.

We were so busy preparing for and then hosting our New Year's Eve party that there was no time to take any photographs

The time slot to take a photograph was only 24 hours

I think that it is the gritty realism that made me think that it might be a JR image.

Well I've entered but I'm not happy with it. I found it a stunningly hard topic to get ideas for which I suspect is why there are so few entries as yet. I was pleased to drop onto first footing as an idea. I had another idea but it would need people and I don't do people!

Perhaps many of us have taken the subject matter too literally, thinking that the photograph had to be taken on New Year's Eve rather than submitting an image that is evocative of New Year's Eve

I'd be surprised if that was the case as it always seems to me that the weekly competition prompts people to trawl their archives.

Pity if it is the case as the completions are fun.
