We usually have a discussion thread on the current weekly competition, so I've started one here as it seems a logical place to do so.

There are some interesting takes this week on what I thought was quite a challenging subject. How to encapsulate the world today in one image...not easy to find a definitive statement.

Don't forget to have a go over at Gallery>Competitions. We are up to the second page of images now!
Best regards, John

Good idea, JR. I guess maybe here would be a good place for us all to say "Good judging, well done, difficult subject, etc, etc". So.....

Good judging on a difficult subject! Congrats to PentaxAngel!

I'd also like to add that I actually like the new competition format. I used to have to open the judges comments in one tab, and switch back and forth to match up the comments to the photo in another tab (I learn a lot that way). I don't have to do that anymore, and that's good.

Also, I kinda like, but have to get used to, seeing the winner as a thumbnail before I open up the comp. I had thought it spoils the surprise a bit, but really it just announces it in a different way.

Well done Pentax Angel! And well done Martin on the much coveted second place.
Great judging of a difficult subject Timbo. (To quote Giving Tree )

There's a thread in the Gallery as well, so maybe once we're use tyo the new system that's the best place for this discussion after all?

I agree that the gallery is the best place once the competition has finished, leaving the forum for anything that arises whilst the competition is current.

That sounds fine. It keeps the competition in mind for the forum users and doesn't clutter up what the judge is looking at until the judging is done.

We'll settle down to something logical as it goes along.

Do you mean the thread that starts under the winner's picture?

There's a general thread, started by Chirpy this time, that is not specific to one image. The winner does appear over that once the competition has been judged.
Best regards, John
