Think popping a water balloon and capturing the moment it explodes - or whine running in to a glass, or someone running, capturing them almost floating in mid air.... it is fairly open to interpretation. Strike a match and capture the flame as it starts burning.

 

So this is one for indoors, or outdoors. Big or small... just have fun with it :)

I kinda thought that, but wasn't really sure, as I hadn't really noticed people abiding by that rule *cough*MrGuppy*cough* :p

 

Adding that bit of extra info would make it more understandable.

Oh I forgot a couple of times, but you will notice I post afterwards saying something like "post for theme, forgot to add with photo" :P not only me,a  couple of other members as well.

Basically when you submit your photo you need to include a suggestion for what you would want as a theme, so an idea could be Mono, Candid, Water, Motion or maybe something a bit more open to the imagination like I Can See for Miles or You +1. You can think of anything!

Bit pants (even got my finger in the shot, lol)

 

It is/was a "Living Image" photo.

 

Unfortunately, it turns out there is no way to export these images, so you can only view them on your phone via the Nokia Camera app :/

 

Thought I might as well post it anyway :)

 

I've got 24hrs to think of a theme for next month, right? :rolleyes:

I know that the event is really fantastic and something I'd love to see but I would be super paranoid about taking my camera there, I've heard nightmare stories of that dust being so fine that regardless of what you do it gets inside your camera.

as opposed to normal dust or sand? That doesn't make much sense :wacko:

Normal dust is usually pretty big in terms of particle size, and sand is bigger again. This stuff is ridiculously fine in comparison.

With sand just don't remove your lens at the beach and you're good.

Well, if you don't take risks as a photographer?
