no description?

are there any previous challenges similar,.since this seems to be the first of this particular challenge (I'm assuming since I see no Roman numerals)

there have been 3 "from above" challenges, here is the first:
from above

Without description it sounded too cryptical for me, considering that I'm not a mothertongue. I didn't think of the 'from above' connection.

I assumed "over the top" is not literal, its a challenge to "go too far,"
perhaps to have reached the goal- as in, "folks, that last contribution put us 'over the top'"

but most likely, to take an outrageous exaggeration of a shot-

"outrageously overdone"

I was thinking its this and something literally jumping over the top of something else.

so it's basically a free study where you can make your title tie in the shot?

Now I'm completely lost... you have 3 different interpretations O.O

Online dictionary definition is "Over-the-top" --> extremely or excessively flamboyant or outrageous (i.e. an over–the–top performance)

Of course going "over the top" of something is entirely plausible as well. Without the challenge description its subject to interpretation. Game on folks!

I'd like to think that the lack of description implies that the topic can be interpreted either literally or figuratively. Meaning something that exceeds an upper limit, whether by physical excess (too much water in a glass) OR outrageousness in actions or attire (10" platform shoes)

I'd like to think that tanguera is right about this, I think some freer interpretation would be nice in general. No description means "photographers gone wild"

"All my life I've been over the top/I don't know what I'm doing I don't wanna stop/All my life I've been over the top/Either you're in the way or you're with me/I don't wanna stop'.

Lyrics from Ozzy Osbourne's hit song, Over the Top.

I think the first part of the Challenge is to determine what the Challenge means to you...

Sounds like fun... Might be time for me to re-up again.
