I start a new thread for the Jan/Feb 2009 Monthly Shooting Assignment (MSA) and here it is:
An image of objects with a striking difference that shows their relative excellence; large/small, dark/blonde, ugly/beautiful, straight/bent, horizontal/vertical, rough/smooth, strong/weak, hot/cold, wet/dry etc.
You will find instructions on MSA entry by FilmSprocket. Link
And of course a BIG congratulation to Nuno Souto for the great image in the Nov/Des 08 MSA "An Image of the profession"
