What a fun idea for a challenge. Maybe retro, since most newspapers use color photos these days.

I thought this challenge was going to suck at first... But the more I think about it, the more I am starting to like it.

Should be some really good shots.

I'm in. I like my shot, hope the voters will as well :)

I agree with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Tiny... its a free study in black and white. you can make ANY photo a headline with the appropriate title.

Yep - almost anything can be a headline.

But it is those that do it best that will sell the most newspapers.

+1

It's true, everything can be a headline, but I will rate higher the ones that I think more believable as headlines. I don't wanna say more - I don't want to influence voters.

Are most people going to process their shot so it LOOKS like a newspaper image?.... grainy, "dot matrix", faded?

Not sure how many borders and vignettes I have seen in news shots....keep it straightforward would be my recommendation.

Yes, but a nice interior shot announcing "Shaker Furniture Making Comeback" might not be a headline worthy of front page status, which those who read the challenge description will probably expect.

ETA: FWIW the "dot-matrix" idea mentioned earlier is really a "halftone", which is a way of SIMULATING shades of gray by using different-sized dots of black. It can be achieved using (in Photoshop) Filter > Pixelate > Color Halftone.

However, I think it makes more sense in the context of DPC to just submit an ordinary grayscale JEPG.

I've been away for awhile, but have finally found the time to come play again.. Not expecting much from my entry, but it's good to be back..
11/13/2012 10:19:43 PM · #15
Im currently stuck in a place where virtually there are no crimes, public rallies are staged, and politics is boring.... Nope, those are not excuses. I'm in:)

last minute post: anyone having trouble previewing their photo entry? It just loads a bit of a top strip of the shot.
