I know there's still a chunk of time left, but it would be wonderful to get a big turn out for the For Dallas challenge.

This challenge is different -- it's not about scores this time around, it's about a little boy that really needs anything to make his days a little better. And a family who could use some smiles, as well.

It's only expert editing because there's definitely a crowd that can make the use it to create something even more fun.

But we don't have to use it!!

If you can't think of something at which a 5 year old boy will smile, find something that makes you smile! Maybe he'll like it too.

Otherwise, take a guess:

car racing
animals -- lots of possibilities here -- dogs, cats, zoo animals, etc
video games
playing in the sand at the beach
playing on a playground
storytime with a parent
building forts
building anything
construction equipment (at least my son was fascinated with them -- especially the "excadiggers"

Have to go work on something, but I'm reading the caring bridge site each day, and it's such a struggle for Dallas and his family...

Anyone else have any more ideas to throw out?

I am exhausted these days, but I'll make sure to come up with something.

I'm still trying to come up with something, but I will enter for sure, I'm going to sleep on it one more night and then execute.

I am in the editing stages of my entry!! For Dallas!
04/23/2012 06:21:29 PM · #9
I am definitely IN... I finished the majority of the editing last night and just have to put some finishing touches on it. I'm not worried about score, just want to make a little boy smile!

I'm in and I am sure all of the pictures will raise Dallas' spirits!

I have uploaded an entry. Would pass basic ruleset. Will get hammered for not utilizing Expert ruleset techniques. It's just the way things are. I'm happy to support Dallas in this way.
04/23/2012 10:34:04 PM · #15
Mine is complete, with household approval.

I've entered one especially for Dallas. Hoping it will bring him a smile! I also left Dallas a special message in the photog's comment box that he will be able to read once the challenge ends.

Some more ideas to add to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' vawendy's list:

Stuffed animals
toy cars & trucks
bubble gum
space aliens

Just got mine in. Don't care what the score does as long as it gives Dallas a grin!!

j/k -- I'm in (as usual).

When the voting is over, maybe we can all send him a 4x6 print of our entries.
04/23/2012 11:58:06 PM · #20
Just submitted mine. It's the most extensive work i've ever done in post production. It's no Gyaban, but considering where my picture started off, i'm quite pleased with the result.

Regarding sending him the 4x6 photos, how about we have a single person collect a few dollars from those who are willing and create a photobook of all our entries - something like this. This way all the photos get there at once, and it's not overly expensive, especially if we all chip in even just $1 or $2...

Entry done! Hope it makes a hurting boy smile!!

Probably for $35 we could have a full page of every entry... in a hardbound book(assuming there aren't a bunch more entries in the next 24 hours). $40 sent to Dallas.

If folks are interested, let me know.
04/24/2012 06:27:09 AM · #23
Sounds like a good idea.
Entered last night.

I haven't been active in entering challenges for a while, but I think Wendy has spurred me to get one in for Dallas. Not a great pic, but hope it will give him a smile. Cheers.
