I expected to see a lot of black and white shots using fast film so you'd literally have a "grit" to the image, preferably portraits because they're fascinating to study.

Me too, drew. My plan was to see less focus and color, distracting precision, more signs of suffering. Anyway, I still enjoyed, and there are many variants of this theme should someone else wish to run with it at some time. Might even coax Gspotter back!!

Hmm, interesting. From my perspective the description of the theme was very open ended, almost unclear in some ways.

Part of the charm of this game is that there's enough wiggle room for the players that the person who sets the challenge is often surprised by the submissions.

Yeah, I was thinking along the lines of ruins covered in moss from years of neglect. Guess it didn't work well if no one else saw that.

Thanks! I'm just glad I didn't have to suffer one of AWR's withering critiques, above. (You took it well, turtle.)

I thought AWR's theme was clearly expressed and also rather well written.

I'll endeavour to put up the next PCT theme tomorrow. By the way, if anyone has any ideas how we should best deal with the inevitable creep of the competitions from one month to a bit over, making the dates messy, please air them!

I say keep the variable dates. I like a bit of messiness.

Fixed dates don't really work, it doesn't give the winner much time to come up with a new theme. Keep variable dates.
