Pretty simple - a 12 day side challenge with a holiday theme (bright side or dark side). Doesn't have to be a partridge or anything to do with the song (but if you can get some shots of 8 maids a milking or 9 ladies dancing, you get extra credit). Anything goes as far as editing. No minimum # of images, but a max of one image per day for the 12 days (Mon, Dec. 13th through Fri, Dec 24th).

Any interest?

Edit to add: Any December Holiday themed photos are welcome. And remember, they don't all have to be cheery. Just like me, the holidays also have a dark side. ;-)

I'm known (according to my wife) for rewriting history. ;-)

2 of my maids are on vacation this month, but I'll do my best. ;)

Do they have to be taken on the particular "day of christmas" or can we use things from earlier in the month of December?

Cool - I'm in . . . My first side challenge attempt. I was told that this is the best way to get the best critiques for accelerated learning!

i'd like to do this. I've been wanting to get my holiday ornament shots done. I'll do my best to find some milk maids but I'd rather find the leaping lords :)

edit to add

do Channukah images count? It's the time of year when there are plenty of burning bushes....

Taken between 12/13 and 12/24. I won't check your EXIF, but there is a guy who keeps lists of who has been naughty and nice. ;-) Really, if you want to post any the were shot a little earlier, feel free. :)

Nah, no voting. It will be a busy time for everyone, myself included.

Just sit in a different spot each time and composite it at the end of the challenge.

Bump. This will kick off Monday.

Couldn't find woodies, partridges, dancing ladies, not even milking maids today, but found a nice replacement for it :)

My plan was to do this too! how'd you read my mind? haven't done one of these in such a long time and decided to do one. Except i'm not using beer, other props. Looks like we'll be head to head. (multiple heads ;)
