I keep finding some excellent pictures by muckypup but he has not been on the site for ages so it makes me wonder whether I should choose one of his..


Yes Dave, I can see this being a problem, in fact it always has been when choosing IOTW, some members have dumped images in the gallery, and then disappeared.  :knuppel2:

We still need Hevans to cut his down to two as well.

Yeah yeah yeah....I'm working on it.  :-\

When I've downselected, I'll post them in the "entries" thread.

I thought the idea was, to select one of your own pictures and one from another members gallery, and as it's year end, shouldn't it include only pictures taken in 2011?  :doh:

How about a poll for previous winners of IOTW for the year to be decided in January??

I'd have thought so, but I am still trying to work out how to view last year's pictures in the gallery without it taking all week.

Des, we used to have the monthly vote, but mostly it attracted no interest, so it was abandoned. One thing I do know is that this sounds a whole lot easier to get to grips with.

Howard, I know this is a slow process, especially on this gallery setup.

But if you go to the previous images of the week album, and click the first thumbnail image, then click the intermediate image to bring up the full size, you then have a choice, ether click the little slideshow button, or click on each pic to move to the next one.  If you see one you like click the X button, and it will land you on that pic's page.  You might find this a little quicker.

And a tip, press f11 on your keyboard to make your browser full screen before clicking image to full size.  The images should adjust to fit screen.

I don't think it really matters if we choose two pictures by other members. At the end of the day its only a bit of fun.  On your second point, I have had a look at the pictures submitted and two are technically not this years pictures.   1.  Reinardina's ' The Gateway' was taken on 29.12.10 but added to the gallery on 16.06.11     2.   Abers picture ' The longest mile '  was taken on 04.08.09 but was IOTW on 12.07.11 so I think it may be a bit picky not to include them. Let me know what you think.  :)

Could do with a few more before I set up the poll this afternoon   :'(  so come on folks  :tup:

Just a thought for 2012 - if everyone who looked at the chosen IOTW gave it a score using the stars, the one with the highest score at the end of the month could be IOTM and be placed in a thread - at the end of the year there could be a poll of the 12 images to find the IOTY. There could also then be another poll like this current one where people could nominate their favourites from those that had'nt actually been IOTW so that the many great photos that had'nt been chosen during the year would have a second chance to make the front page.

Well, if they have to have been taken this year, then that helps a lot with the selection. I'm gonna go with: (I'll also add them to the entries thread).

michaelb104's "Gerbera just after watering":
 I love the way this is a colourless flower shot. Normally such shots concentrate on the bold and vivid colours, but this one really shows up the texture in the flower. Just Beautiful.


Howard's "Opposite Curves":
I love the complementary geometry and the umbrella pattern in the glass. It's a difficult object to light well, and Howard's done a great job.

Could you withdraw the Longest Mile please as it doesn't meet the entry requirements. It was a combination of two images taken at different times. Thanks to Irv though for nominating it.

I personally think it should stay. After all it was a popular IOTW during 2011.. :tup:

When were the two photos merged into a single shot? Is the photo created at the time the shutter is released? Or in this case, is the image created when the darkroom work is done?

I'd say keep it in.
