I was waiting to hear back from Hugh on this one, but the theme that was suggested is 'Low Angle' - so any shot taken at an upward angle greater than horizontal.

So let's go for it - LOW ANGLE it is.

Usual DCM Weekend comp rules apply - picture must be taken on 31st January or 1st February and posted (where do we post them to?) before midday UK time on 2nd February.

I don't it's worth bothering with any of the other bits.

Let's all say a very very big thank you to CC for providing us with a home while the wreckage is repaired back in Bath. :)

THANK YOU!  :tup:

Hi,

I've posted up the entry thread. I figure this one may as well be the chat thread.

Subject (from Tringle) is:

Low Angle: a shot looking up at something.

I've added an entries thread here.

The DCM site is back up now - I accidentally clicked on the bookmark, and there it was . .

We need to consider what to do - I think, for what it's worth, that we should stay here this weekend, just to make sure that they have really fixed it. . .

Other thoughts please.

I agree. Let's carry on here as planned. You never know...

It would be nice to complete the last weekend's competition and set up its poll to run until, say Monday (3 days for voting as per normal?).

I'm up for that Hugh.

There is already activity over on the DCM forum thread for last weekend's competition. I think that we ought to post a 'redirect' to here for this weekends for all those we couldn't get hold of earlier.

Or should we just give up on this weekend too before it all gets too horrifically complicated and the name calling starts? lol :legit:

Great to see DCM back up and running.  8)   

Spose if were not sure whether to hold it here or there, then we could do one here, and one there.  (different subjects of course).   That'll keep you all busy.  :D

Hi everyone - just signed up here after chasing everyone through flickr et al.

Glad to see the weekend comp is back by hook or crook - I was starting to get withdrawal symptoms...

Mick, I think now that you have set up the temp weekend comp for DCM it may be a good idea to keep it going after this week as ( Cranium weekend comp ) I am sure it will help keep the new members on this site as well as at  DCM and it may generate more interest than ( Cranium of the year )  Just a thought.  Off to the pub now :beer: :legit:
