This month's challenge is: Outside the Frame.

We are taught to capture a subject within the frame of our viewfinder, but that frame can also bring meaning and emotion by excluding content too. Anticipation, hope, infinity, and engagement are some of the feelings and reactions this kind of exercise can express. At the same time, having what is in the frame refer compositionally to something off frame is a challenge, both forcing the photographer to choose what they capture more carefully, thinking about both the 2D space of the frame and the 3D depth within it.

Every image will have a story. The photographer may have something specific in mind, or the observer may have their own interpretation of what they see. Feel free to post a story if you wish. You can reveal what is going on outside of the image in words or another picture, but you must use spoiler tags! The photograph must stand on it's own.

This might be overly ambitious, but I hope folks will be motivated to try some new stuff. I know that it will make a great assignment for me personally even though I'm not in the running. I can't wait to see what others here can do!

Good luck and happy shooting!




Can a helpful admin or mod please fix the typo in the title? Thank you!

I love this idea. I'll have to try to remember to actually participate this month.

Oh, a new topic! Bit confused with the timing though. I thought it was aligned to the start/end of the month.

With the few slow months that we have had is this a short, get out there and shoot your socks off in the next 10 days, or are you running till mid Nov?

Which I suppose would allow for an extended xmas one to run till first week in Jan!?!

OK, I have given up keeping this sig up to date. Lets just say I'm the guy that installs every latest version as soon as its available!

I assumed that "Octiber" was deliberate to stay outside of the frame of the soul-sucking constraints imposed by standardized spelling. Rage on, 'Rotto!

We had a winner who never picked a topic so the last one started late (mid month), so it just happened to work out that we aren't starting at the beginning of the month anymore. Should still run 30 days from the day of the topic being listed.

Yeah, we'll say the 15th of the month for now, see how contributions roll in. If we need to roll it back more, it can be the October/November PCT.

Why not just let this one run long and reset to the beginning of the month? ie: Deadline for this would be the end of November....?

My recommendation: Submissions close 5 days before the first of the month; announcement of winner is same day or next day; if by first topic has not been posted by winner, runner up must post a topic, if not topic reverts to some sort of preconceived list and judged by the moderators.

or something to that effect.

This makes sure there isn't a creep of the dates. The topic can revert to a moderator if the preconceived list idea is disliked.

Yup!

I did mention this in another thread.

It was the night of the first snow which was melting as it first hit the ground. I'm not fond of fighting the traffic jams out to Scotiabank Place, so we were taking the bus and the pic was taken as we were waiting at the bus stop to catch a ride to the game.

He was disappointed that the Sens were beaten in the game itself...but as we got out of the arena very wet snow had accumulated and we had snowball fights all the way from the bus stop to home. He liked his first live NHL game, but it is the snowball fight that I think that he liked best. The snow has since melted, but the 'real' stuff that stays will be with us soon, no doubt.

Love the theme, BuonRotto, even though it sounds like something an architect would dream up.

Here is my entry...I hope it fits the idea of the theme. It's been one of the hardest for me to make creative some how...

here we go!

taken from the balcony of the newseum in washington DC. "Outside the Frame" refers both to the complete lack of cars (odd for pennsylvania ave), or the trees casting huge shadows across the road (which wouldn't be nearly as distinguishable if there were cars). The cyclist adds some balance and movement to the photo (i think).

Wednesday, and yeah it's an awesome museum. The pulitzer photo room was stunning (to be somewhat relevant to this thread...) but I think the Katrina exhibit stole the show.

Curse of PCT photo challenge... BuonRotto has gone missing from this site since the 12th... He's still kicking around the internet, so maybe he'll pop his head in tomorrow?

Can't wait to hear your pick and why. This really was a hard topic for me to envision what you were after.
