Welcome to Round #88 of the Dgrin Mini-Challenges

This challenge is open to any DGrin member. It will run through January 13th, 4pm EST (a bit under 2 weeks).

Your Judge:
- adbsgicom (Andrew)

The subject this time is "A Story in a Triptych"

For this challenge, I wanted you to assemble a story in three parts. So for this session, you will only have one entry that tells a 3-panel story (no more, no less). Three shall be the number you count....

So find those temporal sequences of life and share your stories. The entries need not be forged into a single image, just include the three pictures in one post.

*Guidelines:
  1. The entrant must be the sole photographer of the entry.
  2. The photo does NOT need to be fresh. Rummage the archives or shoot something new. Your choice.
  3. Enter only one 3-picture sequence in a single post. You may edit or swap out your images as often as you like, up to the deadline.
  4. Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (eg on your website).
  5. Try to resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (~800 pixels on the longest side works best.)
  6. Give a title to your story.
  7. Participate!!!!!!
  8. Also, especially non-contestants:
    Feel free to share your thoughts and reactions to the entries which excite you. Enjoy discussion with members about their images. This is not just an entry thread, but a thread open for the participation of anyone who would like to contribute, in a way appropriate to the spirit and purpose of the Mini-Challenges

    What are you trying to make me learn something new here?!

    Ok looks like I'm going to google "how to make a triptych image"

    I like this Andrew--it's different--and talk about "challenge" for me anyway. I hope I can manage it.

    The point of the comment about just including your three pictures was so you don't have to go through PS or other tool and merge the three into one .jpg image. Just include the three shots in sequence. The sequence can be a short span:

    1. Ready to swing
    2. Making Contact
    3. Running towards first

    or something of a longer period:
    1. Getting the bridal dress on
    2. Exchanging vows
    3. Walking back up the aisle

    Or even longer....

    Fresh images?
    Andrew, do the 3 images need to be fresh or can we dig into the archives?

    Dig away!!! The mini-challenges have traditionally not required a seal of freshness. OP has been updated to be clear.

    DaveV, thanks for getting us started!!!

    Perfect as-is. You do have double img//img tags in the text, but that's not a deduction...

    Edit your post, and just delete one of the img tags that are around each of the photo links. example:
    [IMG][IMG]www.smugmug.com/myphoto/sample.jpg[/IMG][/IMG]
    

    Change it to
    [IMG]www.smugmug.com/myphoto/sample.jpg[/IMG]
    

    Easy

    Oh, and welcome to Dgrin! wave.gif

    Thanks for the challenge Andrew. New to PS, I did figure out how to build a triptych. I love it when I learn something new in a challenge.

    If you think this would work better as three images scrolled one after the other, let me know.

    For some reason, there isn't any image (not even a red X) in your post. My guess is that the link you have above isn't the actual image link (since -D isn't a proper size), you need to get the link from the 'share' tab (if the gallery is protected) or open the image, get to the size you want, and then use the right-mouse to copy the image (or image address) and insert.

    I'll try again. The weird thing is, is that I see the picture in the thread, both in my original post and in your response! Go figure. Hope this one works:

    That works. It is because the image is cached in your system. Any chance of replacing this one with one a size larger?

    Is this size okay? I hadn't posted before so I wasn't sure how big to go with it being so wide. If you would tell me I need to change it a few more times, I'll get to chalk up more posts! :)

    I think XL is the perfect size for posting on here. If its too wide, who cares! We can scroll... in the quote in this post I changed it to link to the XL size.
