For those in DPC who march to the beat of a different drummer, how about a challenge
featuring the likes of Jean Sibelius, or even the Three Bs (Bach, Beethoven & Brahms)

It would be fascinating to see the interpretation, in pictures, of classical music.

:-))

Now that would be an awesome challenge - either specific or as a genre in general. Wow - my mind is flooding with ideas.

Now then, Jean Sibelius would certainly whet my appetite! May be able to find something for that.

Mahler rules! :-p

Certainly prejudiced in favour, and yes, the mind spins. Bach would apply to some select styles here - unfortunately not mine, but certainly 21.gif pineapple's, and 21_F.gif salmiakki has already got some Sibelius. I'd like to try Poulenc, Satie or Debussy.

Will this go over? Or maybe a side challenge?

I could have a whole lot of fun interpreting Debussy with my Lens Baby

I can see a beautiful interpretation of his "La Mer" with that lens!

Heh, heh. Yes, I think you might find something. Maybe "Finlandia?"

Coincidence - I'm conducting Sibelius' Fifth Symphony on Saturday!

It did occur to me that it would be nice to see DPC venturing into the classical world. Schubert would be a good option with the myriad of lieder he wrote...

Good idea, really, having a Classical music-themed challenge. I think the only Led Zeppelin song I've ever listened to is "Stairway to Heaven".

Well, we just completed another 'popular' Challenge in the popular musical artist, Billy Joel.

So, it seems like time to re-propose a challenge that would be a real Challenge.

Say, Jean Sibelius, or other classical musicians.

Or, to make it simple:

Enter an image that is inspired by classical music.

We've never had one. Nope, never.
And this is a very old thread that I am resurrecting
for the occasion.

Every 7 years or so isn't nagging, is it?

that would be grand. I feel my spirit rising.

Saint-Saens could have a challenge all to himself. Carnivals and orgies!

This year in Finland, they are celebrating 150 years since the birth of Sibelius.

Indeed! I may even dust off a lens and charge my batteries for this :)

Speaking of classical composers, I just developed and scanned my film with pictures of composer Philip Glass. It only took me a year!
