This is the CHAT THREAD

ENTRY THREAD HERE: http://cameracraniums.com/forum/index.php?topic=4208.new#new

This week's theme is TOGETHER AT CHRISTMAS - NO RECOGNISABLE FACES!
As some of you know I`ve had a number of battles with Leeds City Council ad their Christmas Market photography policy which targets DSLR users unfairly. They say you can take pictures of general scenes but not use them / share them online without model releases or use commercially without the same  if they feature recognisable faces. Your challenge is to get an idea of togetherness at Christmas time across without featuring said faces - doesn`t even have to feature stereotypical Christmas lights / baubles. See what you can do - even helps H with French privacy laws!

Pictures to be taken between Sun 14th December and Sun 21st December 2014.

Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 22nd December 2014.
Poll will be up Tuesday 23rd December 2014.
Winner to be announced Saturday 27th December 2014.

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to:
Post a topic on, or before 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

I have an idea but my interpretation is no recognisable people (i.e. an image that Getty et al would say doesn't require a model release).

Sounds a perfectly acceptable interpretation to me.

Had something different in mind, but the situation wasn't quite right. So I am going with this one, probably.

Yes that`s fine - needn`t be people at all, could be things showing togetherness. What is meant is that if there are people in it they should not be recognisable.

What a shame that things have come to pass that you and a lot of other people are reticent to pass any opinion on just about anything in case some sad soul somewhere leaps on it and deems it politically incorrect, either islamaphobic, homophobic, racially abusive, ad infinitum.

It seems strange that the doll appears about Christmas time when Muslims who don't celebrate the event seem to enter into the commercial aspect of it.

I used to have a Muslim customer who was mad for Christmas - he loved the whole atmosphere, and as he had a small chain of shops he decked them out comprehensively. He used to say "business is business"  ;)

There's so much in the news lately that 'taints' your view of things. The shootings in Pakistan, the seige in Australia, the mall incident a while ago in Africa etc........what has gone wrong in this world.

Pixelated would be fine as you couldn't recognized the face. In fact a lot of newspapers do this now rather than chase every person to sign a model release form.  :tup:
