Uh, thanks... I guess not everybody feels the same way about it.... I'm heading for my first Brown ribbon... torn to shreds by the DNMC ppl.

So, IS this a free study? Certainly I can understand people assuming your subject needs to be "playing" peek-a-boo... but that criteria of "let your imagination run wild" lends itself to a free study. I don't need to be met with a bunch of DNMCs if I interpret it as a free study. One of my biggest problems here has been trying to understand a challenge on the basis of nothing much more than a title... so mostly I stay out of anything but the montly free study.


The view I'm taking on this one is low expectation, try to have fun and see what happens. This one, and the next challenge about Blurry, are all nice and easy going... i.e. for once there's a chance at some artistic license...run with it and forget about the DNMC morons as much as you can. On this kind of a challenge for me it's more about my creativity and artistic endeavour rather than honing my technical skills to create eye candy - so who cares about the votes and results... (easy to say on this one, harder for more specific challenges/interpretations)

I stopped reading halfway down the thread.

Title = Peek-a-boo.
Details = Let your imagination run wild.

In other words - do whatever you want. We'll all be surprised by the image you produce, just like if we were playing peek-a-boo.

<rant on>
Stop trying to box up the challenge. Just shoot and have fun and consider it a week long free-study. GEESH!
</rant off>

I'll vote for the child game as that's what's normally meant by "Peek-a-boo" in my opinion.

It's definitely a fun topic to think about. :)


One of the first things I thought about when I saw this challenge was "Picabo Street" and the challenge details state "Let your imagination run wild!"... it disturbs me when people vote against or lower their votes on a technically great picture that definitely falls into the challenge description.

My thoughts on voting go something like this... I figure if it didn't get disqualified, it deserves a fair vote. I try to vote on technical basics (level horizons, rule of thirds, focus, etc...) first, then weather I find the picture interesting/engaging, and that's about it. Not sayin everyone is supposed to vote like I do... just thought I'd put it out there.

Perhaps you could broaden your interpretation to include others. When I just searched Google images for "peekaboo," the children's game was the 8th picture, not the first (note that I have safesearch set to show all images).

Of course, there's always Picabo Street...

"Her given name was inspired by the nearby Idaho town of Picabo, Idaho, (pronounced "PEEK-uh-boo"), which in turn takes its name from a Native American word meaning "shining waters"."

I agree! If I was trying to go for a respectable score, I wouldn't dare use any of the other interpretations.

Most common useage in the US is really the child's game, where a child (or adult) hides behind their hands, uncovering one or both eyes for a second, while an adult (or similar) says "Peek-A-Boo" !


Or the child hides and then leaps out from his/her "hiding place" in plain view next to the couch and yells, "Peek-a-Boo!" giving an obviously terrible fright to the adult. Or the adult spoils the fun and says first, "Peek-a-boo, I see you!" and the child argues that s/he still wins the game.

Or you play with feathered children, like my parrot, who climbs out from under the blanket I put over her head and says, "Peek-a-boo" as her head emerges. Or says, "Peek-a-boo" so I will remove the blanket. We have variations on all our games; she's always either narrating or demanding action ;-)

Any image involving something/someone not quite hidden or spotted in a hiding place would be a safe bet. For my vote, anyway (does anyone else's opinion count?).

I don't know nuthin' about those peek-a-boo outfits y'all mentioned. I'm sticking to respectable interpretations ::she said in her very best ladylike voice::
