Many of us tend to focus only on the photos we've shot recently, and forget about the Gigabytes of potential still sitting on our hard drives. For February, let dig through our archives and find some of those shots we'd planned on editing but never got to them. Since everyone is already looking for their best of 2010 entry, this might dovetail well with that. (It'll also be a good place to post those outtakes from the "best of".)

Any year. Lets try doing a topic of the week to give it some direction, but not too narrow. Here's my initial suggestions, but we can certainly swap out themes if someone else has a better idea. No editing rules, just have fun.

February 1-6: Landscapes/Cityscapes

February 7-13: People

February 14-20: Transportation

February: 21-28: Local flavor (something distinctive of your part of the world)

Count me in!

Unfortunately I will be away in February but I like the idea!
01/22/2011 01:58:35 PM · #4
I like the categories idea. Count me in.
01/22/2011 01:59:36 PM · #5
Count me in! Although I've only been taking photos for about 6 months I should be able to post a few up.

I've been really busy recently and need to catch up on my PAWs but Feb will be quieter and this sound good so count me in.
01/22/2011 02:01:06 PM · #7
ok, I'm definitely in. Something I really need to keep up on!
01/22/2011 02:03:43 PM · #8
I haven't found a side for Feb. yet, so might do this one, but I fear I'd have absolutely nothing for "Transportation". Now animals I've got.

I like the idea and it would dovetail quite nicely with my "Spring Cleaning" of what I truly wish to keep and what is just clutter.
01/22/2011 02:06:27 PM · #10
Sounds like a good time. I'm in!
01/22/2011 02:07:42 PM · #11
Actually, I could pick them before I go - count me in!
PS I will be able to post, just won't have access to my archives

I'd be in. Is the intent to do one per week or as many as we want?
Is it okay to have something that is new, as well, should it come up and be appropriate, or do you want to reserve this to the oldies festering on our drives?
01/22/2011 02:09:21 PM · #14
I'd like to join in, thanks
01/22/2011 02:09:24 PM · #15
Sigh. I'm all for it and want to participate. But based on my recent performance in other sc's I've signed up for, I'd be with you more in spirit. Especially since I'm about to start a killer class that may take ALL my attention...

As many as you like. If you want to post one a day or one a week, either is fine. I think limiting it to stuff festering on your hard drive, but it's your own judgement as to what constitutes that.

I'm in.
Especially since my postprocessing has improved by leaps and bounds since joining dpc, there are a ton of pictures from before that I couldn't do anything with then, and can probably do something with now.

That was one of the points of this SC that I forgot to mention. Thanks.

I'm in! I just got topaz adjust and I would like to edit some old ones I haven't got to yet using this, and re-edit some to see if I could have done a better job if I had had this software sooner. Hopefully I will learn to use it along the way.

Bump for the weekday crowd.
01/24/2011 01:53:36 PM · #21
I would love to join... Excellent idea!!
01/24/2011 02:20:38 PM · #22
Great idea, count me in please.
01/24/2011 06:35:40 PM · #23
I was sure I had replied to this... Count me in, please, Steve.
01/24/2011 10:36:45 PM · #24
I am in.
01/24/2011 11:22:27 PM · #25
I'd love to participate provided I understand where and how to add my images. Where would I find this posting when the time comes to participate? Sorry for the ignorance.
