    Photo Assignment: Weekend 11/03/07

    Big week last week! Lots of submissions and lots of fun.

    KBasa posed an interesting question: Do we want to have a larger "review and comment" team?

    I'm certainly open to having more voices offer critique. Bluestune, Rebecca, Knary, Ian, Burnzilla, and Bricciphoto have all chimed in. Whether a critique or a question, it's all something we can learn from. I hope folks will chime in with their thoughts as they wish. And if you want to contribute more regularly, PM me and let me know your thoughts--or just do.

    Having said all that, we humbly offer these simple rules:

    • Photos must be shot this weekend: Fri, Sat, or Sun.
    • You must provide the EXIF information if asked (we'll help you, if you'd like to know how to get it).
    • No photoshop alteration (we're looking to improve your skills with your camera, not software).
    • Your photograph must adhere to the theme, which will be described below.
    • Post only one photo per post, so that commentary can be easily provided for that photo. Having a creative title for your photo is always nice.
    • Post your photos in this thread only. Do not start a thread in reply to this assignment. Please post your photos no later than next Wednesday.
    • And, the most important rule: have fun! We're looking to spread the joy that many of us derive from taking pictures, particularly ones that tell a story of some kind.

    This week's theme: "Pure & Simple"

    "Pure and simple" can refer to ingredients, one's version of truth, the old days, or many other ideas. What does it mean to you? Take a photo and show us. And for fun, try to include a title without the words "pure" or "simple."

    It's already Friday in some parts of the country. Now get out there and shoot.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Great theme! It is so ... pure and simple.

    Wow! I gotta go with this one as my Fav. While there are some nice entries, the candle, the lock, the straws and even my beer can shot all fit the "simple" theme well, as does the old BMW motorcyle fit the simple, (machanically speaking) theme, yet each have multiple elements, but this one, now this has but one element, planes, period! Talk about minimulist and plane or (plain) . Plain and Simple, it capture both elements nicely, Very striking, nothing to distact and I love the angles, the way the picture is divided by the plane running corner to corner, very very nice!
