Is it just me, or are there a disproportionately large number of pretty mediocre shots in this challenge? Both from a creative and technical perspective. That said, there's also a small handful of really nice images. Not too hard to pick those that are likely to end up on the front page IMO. And, mine's not gonna be one of them! :)

Darn... I ran out of time for this one, so I didn't get an entry in. I'm away from home and didn't really plan on having the ability to process, so I don't know how that would have turned out anyway. :-/

Good luck to all the entries!

Orange again, they say, but the entries stream in. And yes mine is there too. I love the colour and battled to find the time to enter but I did.

Rhymes With Orange

I had an idea for this challenge. Nothing special but it was an idea. Then I had a FANTASTIC idea. But I don't have the means to execute it. So now Plan A really sounds sucky. I am going to pout instead of vote. Hmmph!

I don't know about you, but I am ready for a blue :-)

I was going to submit this to the challenge but got a better photo I feel. Any feedback though how I would've gone, as the photo does not contain a lot of orange, I pulled it out for that reason as I didn't want to be bombarded by a whole lot of LOW votes.

There are laws in most countries forbidding that kind of child abuse!

I always love it when someone says we've had too many "X" challenges. I think, so many choices, so few chances...think about it:

ORANGE? Sure. Isn't the (or one of the) color(s) of Holland ORANGE? A festival recently, maybe? Or to narrow it down a bit, how 'bout them Giants. You know the SF Giants, "World Baseball Champions" whose colors are...wait for it "ORANGE and black." Failing that some can fall back on autumn colors. Red maples? Heck they can be ORANGE in a flash. Think of all those pumpkins, chrysanthemums and other fall ORANGE flowers, or sure, go for the carrots and other fruits and veggies of the season. If you don't like the outside of the squash, cut the thing open - yeah, it is still ORANGE. Then there are Post-its, envelopes, and other stuff.

Bored yet? Yes? Uh, well, sorry 'bout that.

This challenge is a good example of a topic I initially hated. Then.... what do you know.... suddenly appears a notable orange thing in my sights. This is what I love about DPC.... it opens my eyes to things I was not noticing.

If the photo, does'nt contain, a fair bit of orange in it, would you mark it down. Or how much of the photo do you think should have the color orange in it.


I don't think that it matters the amount as long as the main subject of your photo features orange.

I just got excited about this challenge. I just thought of something with great potential. Hopefully I can make it work.

Orange was a piss poor choice - no idea what the hell they're thinking...

I mean, how the heck did they choose this? Any other color would have been a better choice, even fuchsia or baby-shit-yellow... Anything...


calm down bevis

You would need to somehow get between my wife and I in bed for you to be the first person I see in the morning. In that case I prefer Wendy before Mike... :P


But I hear Mike is a good Spooner. You might check Wendy's references.

also considering orange is a popular complementary color.
