Just wondering why we do have another Orange challenge this year!!! Last one was only in March, and we had a Yellow one few months ago!!!

What about blue, green , purple, etc, that did not pop up since 2008 or 2006? = )

I guess it's a good time for orange with leaves, pumpkins, oranges, but still!!!

I was wondering this too, I wasn't around for the last orange challenge so it isn't a big deal for me. But I wonder if everyone else has used up their ideas on the last one.

I was wondering if it was a mistake, but I guess since a few people have already entered its a go.

I was also wondering if it was a mistake. Twice in one year seems excessive. I'll shoot for it anyway, but it certainly isn't holding much interest.

Orange you satisfied?

How about a challenge for words that rhyme with orange.

I'm usually the guy saying that challenges are challenges, but really?

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...

Orange was my second challenge with DPC - March 2004. I ended up in 276th place out of 383 entries. If I can't beat that this time, I'll give my photo gear away to the first person I see the next morning.

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.

I just got excited about this challenge. I just thought of something with great potential. Hopefully I can make it work.
11/24/2010 06:11:23 PM · #17
Good luck then !

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
