Remember, we have a week to shoot and then a week to vote, so the first round won't be complete for two weeks. Also, you'll need to shoot for round 2 (next week) without knowing whether you got through round 1 - but hey, at least you'll have an entry in!

I'll try to work out the results as soon as I can each Monday morning. The winner of each pairing will be the one who beats their average by the most amount (or is under it by the least). Pairings for future rounds will cascade from this initial list. A randomly placed triplet match will be made whenever we have an odd number.

Some interesting picks here - and of course fighting talk is very much encouraged!

Thanks for all of the interest.

Good luck!

Paul

Aw, MAN! I'm up against the winner of Season 1 BTASC. Big Joe (21.gif ace flyman)!

Is it a feature of the method of pairings or a fluke? 21_F.gif salmiakki and I have exactly the same average, down to the last digit. :-)

Both! The reverse of your score was also identical. Had someone else had a slightly different score and been placed above you on the list you would be separated. Basically, I think if your scores are identical then there is a 50% chance you will be together.

I think it is a fascinating pairing!

I hope I have electric to see what the challenge is come Monday morning. LOL! Good luck Peter! Oh wait, we're supposed to trash talk? Watch out Peter! Oh, I suck at the trash talk.

Ha! And there's me thinking I'd come up with a novel idea for a comp!

Guess I'm out after round 1 :).

Btw. Paul, it would be nice if you post the link of this thread in the first post of the starting thread. Makes it easier to find!

Just to confirm then, the first challenge is 'Lens Flare'!

Sigh, I am not too happy with this challenge. Normally I wouldn't enter it, but I guess we will see what I can come up with

Same here. I tried to get a flare shot this morning and none of them were worth entering. :-(

I agree, I tried a number of things and they all looked horrible. Hopefully 21_F.gif ancientimages is having as much trouble as I am getting a good flare ;)

I donno how I can possibly out-flare a DPCer of such immense flair, but I'll stick something in and hope you don't manage some killer shot of an amphibian or insect with the sun behind it :-)

I bet that's what Wendy's saying too :-) I'm glad you're beating each other up, the rest of us only have to face one or the other of you :-)

Yup!! I was quite disappointed. :)

But then again, I lost in the first round last time, too!

For the better part of the week it has been rainy and overcast...Thursday was the first day that actually had some sun but of course my models are not available during those hours. And when my models were available it was pouring rain and/or overcast.

And now with this weekend when there was sun I had obligations with volunteer work and things to do for the big family event that is weeks away. I tried some alternate ideas but nothing to write home about. Unless something like serendipity happens I am out of this challenge. Time and weather are defeating me:-( 21.gif davidw I hope you are having better luck than I:-)
