Thanks very much to all participants!

The announcement of winners plus my comments are here:


Although I designated only three winners, there are many more "winning" images.

I am very impressed by the quality of images and very pleased that so many photographers chose to participate.

Best wishes!

Thanks very much for the quality and quantity of entries thus far!

Sunday will be a busy day. I'm uncertain what time the results will be posted. I'm still hoping it'll be Sunday, but please forgive me if it turns out to be Monday (U.S. Eastern time zone).

Best wishes,

Weekly Challenge #389 — “A Different Approach”

I am honored to have been selected as judge for this Weekly Challenge. Thanks very much to the previous host, Stephen Hampshire, and to everyone who “liked” my photograph of the raindrops on a poppy bud.

I invite you to participate in the return of “A Different Approach” — the topic of Weekly Challenge #324 from August 2015.

“A Different Approach" means that the image you enter is not the first image you captured or processed — or thought you would capture or process — of the subject. Perhaps:

• the angle is different,

• you deliberately overexposed or underexposed,

• you returned at night to a subject you saw during the day,

• you used significantly different processing than you originally intended or attempted,

• or something else.

Please state and explain your different approach, what prompted you to attempt it, and why you prefer it (if you do) to the original approach. Please give information about your choice of camera lens, settings and processing.

I plan to judge on the basis of quality of the image, with the possibility of bonus points for what I think is originality.

The topic was inspired by William Neill's article "Variations on A Theme" on pages 36-37 of the March 2015 issue of Outdoor Photographer, which I hope you can read at this link:

Variations On A Theme - Outdoor Photographer

This contest will close at 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Time, USA) Saturday, June 10, and be judged (barring complications) on Sunday, June 11.

Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week. This challenge is Pentax/Ricoh/Samsung-only.

Everyone is eligible to send in their best interpretation of the given theme, as long as the photo is taken with a Pentax/Ricoh camera. Themes can be subject-oriented or technique-oriented.
