I’ll make a comment in general on photo-a-day Challenges. I’m glad they call them challenges because I find them extremely challenging. The idea is that you develop a discipline in having to do something every day, whether its using one camera, or just one camera and lens and so forth. For me its a tiresome pest, and I really don’t enjoy it much past the first week. Then, when its associated with a forum, there’s an expectation (and why not!) that you’ll comment on everyone else’s efforts. An admirable aim, I believe, but when you have 30 odd people submitting every day, it becomes a tiresome mess, too.
What if you genuinely do not like some of the submissions? It happens. I think that the shoot-anything-as-long-as-you-submit mentality is bringing out a lot of second-rate shots which the owners would never bother submitting anywhere else. There are some which are hideous. Oh dear. I’m being judgmental.
