    I have been posting images that I find interesting and thought might stimulate some nice discussion about the photograph as art and the photographers themselves.

    The discussion has been really great with a lot of good insight and opinion from all kinds of directions.

    I think it might be fun to have a sort of regular feature where others can post an image they would like to submit for discussion. If anyone is intersted post your name in this thread and I will start with the first person (couple people have contacted me via PM) and I will simply send you an email or PM reminder 3 or4 days before your turn. That seems like a good time frame between threads if the 3 I have posted are any indicator.
    If that person does not post because they are out of town or busy I will simply move down the list or post one myself for that slot.

    I would simply ask that you post a new thread each time in the Photographers Forum and title it with the format Discuss a (photographers name) photograph..

    What ever the number of people, we will simply keep going rotating through the list.

    What do you think?

    These threads have been excellent reads, Jim! Thanks for inviting us all to play. I have an idea for a photograph to discuss, and hope I can get the ball rolling in a few days time, per your pm.

    Great idea!

    I am absolutely into it! I was afraid the stars were intended to mean d-word photos, or just any other curse...

    By the way, would you include APUG people's photos in the process as well?

    Sounds like a great idea. I'm glad also that this has migrated from the "Ethics and Philosophy" to the "Photographers" forum, where it really should be. These have been good threads. I'd do one.

    Great idea Jim, and I like it a lot. I'm probably not one to pick a photo and start a thread, but I enjoy reading and participating in the threads.

    Well, with Blansky's rousing seal of approval, Sean contacted me via PM and is going to set up a sub-forum under the photographers forum for discussions such as these. I'll go ahead and stick with the plan and start at the top of this group and let folks know when they are next in line.

    Suzanne Revy will post the next one Saturday. I will try to keep the posts rolling along about every 3 days.

    Also, I started out with some well known photographers, but any image from any photographer is fine. I just ask that the photo be attributed to someone so others can look up additional work or info if available. Posting a link to a web site with additional images would be fine, but I like the idea of including only one image to talk about. I think the discussion is more focused that way. If someone has posted an image from a photographer you wanted to use go ahead and post a different image from the same artist if you want.

    The skys the limit for image ideas. Any genre, time period, or person. Should be fun.

    Thanks for all the input.

    I guess if someone posts to the galleries (at least the critique gallery) they should not mind their image being discussed as well as anyone with work in the APUG sales gallery. I would only ask that you pick images that you like or find interesting (no what's wrong with this picture posts) and that you try to contact the person so they can join in the discussion.

    Any other thoughts on discussing APUG members images? I know of several truly outstanding images that merit discussion (IMHO).

    Hi Jim, I'm part of the sometimes not so silent majority who pop in from time to time, but may not want to join the list.

    There's so many strong images in all the APUG galleries...shouldn't a PM be sent to APUG'ers, asking permission to discuss one of their images in a gallery other than the critique gallery? Seems the polite thing to do.

    I agree. I can't make others ask but if I want to use an APUG member image I will ask permission.
