    Canon -v- Nikon -v- Others: TEAM CHALLENGE - Week ending 15 Feb 09

    Thanks to everyone who entered last weeks team challenge - and thanks too to those who both sent words of encouragement and advice throughout the week.

    As a result of this feedback, I'm going to tweak things ever so slightly for this week so that the challenge can be just a touch more streamlined:

    First up, if people want to submit more than 1 entry that's fine, but it helps with the voting if you can limit yourself to just the 1 image per post.

    Second, there's been a bit of debate about leaving the comments in the thread or taking them out - it's a tough call because there are pros and cons to either approach. Sean's looking in to a better solution - so in the meantime what we'll do is keep the comments together with the images right up until the point where I close the thread and voting begins - at that point I'll make all the posts without images disappear until voting closes, and then make them reappear afterwards (so people trying to decide on what to vote for won't be too distracted).

    We have discussed a better way of voting, but the present way worked OK for me - so I think we'll stick with that for now.

    Finally, it was my intention to let the winner pick the theme for the following week - but with entries already only modest in number along with the rule that the image be taken in the last month, I feel that this would probably restrict entries even further - so my apologies in advance to Raycer, but I'm going to have to ask him to "take one for the team" on this occasion (So no theme this week)

    So - on that note - lets get the ball rolling for week 2 - and of course, get Team Canon back on top where they belong, after our defeat last week!

    UPDATE: Comments on images are - of course - more than welcome, but it would be really helpful if you could avoid displaying the original photo as part of any quoted portion, as it makes it a little confusing Thanks

    Not just you Peter,

    I could have sworn when I read Colin's paragraph 6 above previously it stated more obviously that there wasn't a theme this week, it can be anything - in order to encourage more entries, given the other rule about taken within 28 days, which I believe still stands. But now it's not so obvious, perhaps it got lost in the edit.

    I'm sure Colin will clarify when he's back online.

    Cheers,

    (and change the topic to say 15th Feb, rather than Jan, which has left me scratching my head wondering where to post to. LOL.)

    Hi folks,

    Sorry about the slip-ups

    1. I've fixed up the date issue in the thread title, and

    2. I've edited the first post to clarify the theme (or lack of one as is the case) - sorry, I kind of "implied" that there wouldn't be a theme, but never actually came right out and said it!

    Apologies for the confusion!

    Thanks Maureen - we're really socking it to the "Nikonites" this week - outnumbering them 5 to 1 so far!

    Team Nikon still seems to be sleeping off the hangover after the sound thrashing it gave Canon last week! Still got a bit of a bad head myself and a bit of a sore back from lugging the virtual trophy about. Ah well....Team Nikon;

    Story behind this one is I was waiting for a delivery (Lowepro Slingshot 200) and was so bored I actually took some water shots! Shame on me!

    P.S. I've actually got very little else for the last 28 days. The Chinese New Year went to ratp** when a memory card corrupted. First time it's ever happened to me. I blame the weather as it was minus three on the day. Anyway, Come on Nikon! Wake up!

    Now to muddy the waters a bit, never did have a competitive instinct or it fell out in a playground brawl. This about 90% Nikon, but with a canon D500 close-up ring on the front
