As suggested this weeks theme will actually run over the Christmas period and will cover 2 weeks so look at the dates below.

Keeping in theme with this time of year this 2 week theme is to depict "A New Years Resolution",.

Any interpretation of the theme will be accepted, does not have to be your resolution but anything on that topic, the choice is yours.
 
No restrictions on Post Processing. I think this offers possibilities in all sorts of 'photo styles and does not restrict anyone wherever they are in the world.

Pictures to be taken between 00.01am Monday 23rd December 2013 to 23:59 Sunday 5th January 2014.
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 6th January 2014.
Poll will be up Tuesday 7th January 2014.
Winner to be announced Saturday 11thDecember. 2014.

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to
Post a topic on the Sunday following your declared win
Create an entries thread
Create a chat thread
Create a poll for that weeks comp and declare the winner on the Saturday
(if for any reason there is a problem and no subject is posted by the winner by Monday night admin will advise second place winner to post the topic asap, do the poll etc.)

In case of a tie, the first entry posted wins.

Photos to be taken during the specified dates, ie Monday xx to Sunday xx

Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59 Monday night.

Could have called it the 'Big Deceit,' or the Big Lie.'
Judging by all the exercise equipment on sale in February, lots of people give up one of their resolutions, before the month is out.

I normally don't make resolutions specifically for the new year; not even when I was still smoking, I never decided to quit on the 1st of January.

So I'll have to go for someone else's resolution, or make one up. And who knows, if I can think of a good one, I might even stick to it.

Is that your resolution, or his?

I will try to do my image today. I have a few new gadgets I can try out. A waterproof cover for mycamera, so I can go outdoors. My extension tubes if I want to try a macro shot ans a  ring flash that I have had for a while but not tried, if I want to do a still life. I love my still life's so will probably go for that!

Have first attempt taken - I really like it, so might stick with it. As it turned out, I used none of my new stuff. Will do my post processing and see how it looks, not sure I got the lighting quite how I wanted it though, that is my only issue.

Mind Candy:



It's about time I de-rusted my brain a little. So, not so much a resolution as a desire to get some of the underused and missing bits of knowledge back into my cranial cavity.

Well, back to the office tomorrow, for a day, don't work Fridays so thought that i would try and get ahead of myself with a still life shot.

New Years Resolution is to give up eating Chocolate.

Bit of a rush. Working ftomorrow and off on holiday on Friday.
I can't keep making excuses not to exercise, so I'm just going to have to man up and get on with it.

May the Force be with you.
