Umbrella III · They should have given us a couple weeks so I could hope for a little rain at a time I can shoot.

Something New V · After 432 challenge entries, finding something new that's interesting to shoot ain't so easy.

C2K -- DPC's 2,000th Challenge · Search the archives again? I think I have about a gazillion very mediocre images in my archives. I find looking for something good in my archives a) overwhelming given the size, and b) depressing given the content.

Wha-wha-wha. Someone better call me an whambulance.

Umbrellas can be used for more than rain.

Couldn't agree more.

You can also shoot something new for the challenge ;)

Careful, it's probably driven by George Michael or Andrew Ridgely...

JEWELRY. C'mon peeps, make this your own, take it away, advertise what is precious to you. And last minute stuff rocks.

I like the idea. You've still got about 48 hours before you even have to think about starting a last minute project.

C2K is one entry short of 200 submissions.

This is still lower than the biggest challenge in 2014 (Hidden Gem IV with 237).
The Hidden Gem -- 1,000th challenge is the absolute champion with 1108 entries. WOW! I cannot see how and when we can top that in near future with the current submission count averages. The other challenge due for rollover tonight (Upside Down V) currently has just 31 entries :-(.

That's because I don't have any ideas for upside down!! I'm still going to try, but I don't know what…

I wish there was an email blast to all of the users about the 2000 challenge, especially with the new sizes...

When are you going to upload the Red and the Green? I don't think a monochrome image will do that well. :-)

Heck, I didn't even know you could upload images one channel at a time ...

Wow... maybe that's what I did wrong with mine. I new channels were used, but I didn't know they were used for uploading.... ;P

hmm. Ansel Adams challenge at this time of the year? I anticipate rather low participation for this one. A lot of us Northern Hemisphere folk aren't having a lot of light at this time of the year.

Just bump up your ISO, and there you go :-).
Modern cameras can do wonders at higher ISO. It's supposed to be B&W anyway, so you have that part of the noise problem covered.

Maybe so, but you have unfairly beautiful night skies and such.

:-) I stand corrected. I used to call it grain too in my film shooting days.

Lame city on all counts.

Sigh!

Sigh again, why always these boring challenges, I feel like I'm being punished :(

No one even suggested the current one.
