Single in March 2013

A new month and a new Single Challenge. All are welcome!

Ever wanted to find fame and glory by being Explored on Flickr? .......... Then why not join the Single in Challenge?

The idea is simple:

Every day, take a picture with your chosen lens of the month and post it to the thread of the day. Then other members of the group will comment on your shot. Don't be shy and comment on other member's pictures too.

Here are some more details

1. You need to join the group to post
2. This thread is only for discussing the March 2013 Challenge - if you have a problem this is where you ask.
3. You can upload your pictures to an album in the forums here, Flickr, Picassa .......... Here are some of mine on the forums and on Flickr.
4. Each day has a thread of it's own. Here is March 1st.
5. This is how to put your pictures from an album on the forums to the daily thread


if you post from Flickr you need to copy and paste the BBCode




This all must sound a real pain but by Day 3 you will be an expert! I promise

The only strict rule we have is it must be a Pentax or Ricoh body and the pictures you post must be from the same lens.

If you miss a day don't worry.

We are a very friendly, very international bunch. Come and try!

It's going to be hard to jump back in as I'm still busy like crazy but...after a month off, I miss this too much not to play. Haven't fully decided yet but I'm wanting to use my Q and will likely go with the either the 01 or 02 lenses. I might just work in jpeg with in camera processing. Don't know, but I'm in.

If Tim does the 02, I'll do the 06. There will be some serious photo opportunities this Saturday

I said I would not join this month, but this mornings dog walk with wonderful morning light was just so invigorating that I have to do it!

Looks like a month of the Q so far, so how about I will do either the 01 or 02 depending on what Tim decides.

I feel that I need a theme to keep me motivated. I am thinking B&W jpegs from the Q. It might just be random dog walk shots but now you know :-)

Oh man, the pressure of a decision. Ok, ok, I'll go with the 02 lens. There I said it! I'm doing jpegs this month and am going to learn to use the in cam process and that 1-4 wheel deal on the camera. No theme idea yet but one may develop. We are getting to wildflower season now and you may see a few of them. Hey this still leaves room for the 03, 04, and 05 lenses, any takers?

I've done the 01 and 03 recently, and I have no intention of getting 04 or 05. Expect to see shots of Metallica, Blink 182, Linkin Park, Paramore, Anthrax, Slayer, Cypress Hill, Dragonforce and others taken with the 06 soon....

I'll be sticking with RAW and whatever PP is needed.

Initially I bought the 04 lens and have been ... well... underwhelmed. There must have been some point to it but I don't know what it is.

Fantastic, I'll do the 01.

Good luck with the wheel at the front. Remember that you can store your own USER1, USER2 ++ settings on it. Quite helpful if you have a couple of favorite custom settings.

Oh...really...So after having my Q for about 5 months, I'm really going to have to read the manual now. Thanks for the tip!

I'm in too and I'm going to use by brand new Q. I only have the 02 lens so that's what I'll be using. Since I'm still wading through the manual I have lots to learn. Does this mean we're all using Qs?

Apparently you are Q-rect. I suspect that there will be others who won't use a Q but for now March is shaping up to be qute.
