I'm sorry I've been really busy over the last couple of weeks. Baka had told me he wanted to stop the potf alltogether so I didn't have to start the voting for this. There still are only three entries, I could throw up a voting topic if people want to but I don't think it's even worth it with that amount of entries tbh. 

 

Well there has been before a POTF with only 3-4 entries so I would say maybe put voting up and then start a next one I think the theme was a bit hard for some and a easier theme can get more entries like we had alot before....

 

Only 3 entries?

 

You got Yunomi, Nukleos, Mine (Eina),

Kiwy (he / she said she would be joining)

 

Otherwise we can look to Baka to join so we got 4 (we got 1 with 4 entries before only 1 photo didn't work back then) he said it is easy to make one anyways so shouldn't take him much time :)

 

I really so hope we can start this vote up and get a new theme up like Fire said before an easier theme can get more people again :)

I'm asking the same:

I entered should I reenter it?

 

(been since the first week when this started that I entered)

 

also this concludes we got 4 entries if I need to believe every post o:

I didn't get an entry from Yunomi, just yours, nukleos' and thebinski's. 

 

I think there's not enough photographers here to justify a photographers competition, but I haven't been on in a long time and it will stay that way for a while because I'm really swamped with real life stuff right now.

I agree with you there Neurology! I would love to see it up and running again it was the main reason I came to this site afterall, I barely post photographs myself because well I don't take photo's on a daily basis or they all look the same (take alot photo's from my hamster XD) but these Always challenge me to go futher and do something different yet.

I know but I just want to do something different then the photo's I make nowadays if you see it is like Hamster, hamster, something random, hamster, random, hamster, hamster, hamster...  It isn't that I don't make photo's I just would like to grow and I thought about a day challenge and such but idk I can't come up with themes and looked up a few but some I don't even know where to look to make so idk this was the only thing that kept me challenged or think about things like yeah that sounds good or so ya know :P

 

Maybe I should make a post and ask for a 30 day challenge or a 7 day challenge to start off with.

 

But yeah I did this for the competition also I liked it even though this was the 2nd time I could enter since first I wasn't here and 3rd one I wasn't at my own place so harder to submit anything but I like it and I would love it if it would continue it was something that for me made this site unique since I haven't seen it anywhere else yet.

The Photography section here seems active enough to make an active competition out of this. Don't se why there isn't more activity here. :/

It could be themes that are trumping people. POTF themes are so hard to f*ck with so props to whoever's been doing this till now. You just gotta keep in mind that Photography is very limited, so it's best to keep it to themes that include things that everyone should have access to. Like... Fruit, toys, subjects you can find in your every day home.
And if you want to throw in the occasional fun theme try to make it inclusive for everyone. So for example... Rather than making a "Macro" theme, just say "Close-up"... This way it's more expansive because not everyone has access to macro modifiers or lenses. And this could be interpreted as... Close up portrait. Close up p[ets.... Whatever.
It's also a good idea to throw in a freestyle at LEAST an average of once every 4 weeks because too many restrictive themes get repetitive and boring. Think of your feestyles as refreshes for the community, and use them after you have an odd week where you get less than 3 submissions.

A few ideas you can play around with for POTF themes:
Black and White
REtouch (re-editing an old photo)
REtake (re-doing an old concept, theme, subject, whatever)
SOTC(straight out of the camera)
iPhoneography (smart phone photography. Really fun one in which everyone, not only the community shutterbugs can participate in)
Street(street photography)
Fly on the wall (candid photography)
Long Exposure
Moment (short exposure)
Self portrait

And you can also take community polls to get more ideas :)
