Welcome to Mini-Challenge #177 - Human Emotions

I’m excited to be hosting my first mini. It’s been fun playing along for a couple of years; now it’s my turn to choose the topic!

In my opinion, there’s nothing as interesting as human nature, or as fascinating as the human face. So….. I am interested in seeing your images of people, more specifically images of faces showing emotion—anger, joy, frustration, glee, sorrow—whatever you’ve captured, I want to see it.

This mini will run from now until Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 9:00 p.m. (PST). Thank you for participating—Have fun!!

1. Have fun sharing and seeing what others share!
2. The host supplies a topic and you post 1-3 images. The host judges the winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd) and is not eligible to enter.
The 1st place winner then chooses the next topic, judges the winner and then passes on the baton to the new champion.
3. Any photo you’ve taken is eligible, regardless of when taken or camera used.
4. Any amount of post-processing is allowed. However, it is helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo.
You may comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you some critique or criticism, just ask within your post.
5. The winner has up to three days (72 hours) to begin a new mini-challenge, or the honor goes to the #2 finisher and so forth.
1. Enter 1-3 photos and put them in a single post.
2. 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 (i.e. on your website).
3. Also try and 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.)
4. Give each image you enter a title.
5. Enjoy discussion with members about their images, don't let this just be an entry thread!
6. When quoting a post change the IMG urls to a 200x200 size picture so it is clear your post is feedback and not another entry. (see here for help)
7. Don't be hesitant, share'em and enter!
Mini-Challenge pointers:
1. Upon winning a mini-challenge round your first step is coming up with a new theme, and start a new thread using the same format as others have used.
2. Make sure to notify the admin of this thread to update the main thread links with your entry thread.
3. Feel free to watch the thread as it grows or wait to the end time and look at all the entries all at once.
4. After the time/date has passed, then officially close the thread with a single post notifying everyone of the fact.
5. After you're finished judging start a new thread (again use the prior formats) and post your Winner and runners-up, it is important to have runners up incase the winner does not show within the 72hr window.
6. PM the winner with this info above and let them know they have 72hrs.
7. After the 72hrs and the winner does not show up, notify the next runner-up and post a message on the Winner thread of the fact.
8. Remember, if you're the Winner, you run the show.

The following is a thread by Sherstone (Sean) our fearless DGrin Challenge moderator:

Quoting Images

In an effort to enhance the original entries and keep the quoting looking cleaner some of you may have noticed that I have gone in and edited your replies with quoted images to have smaller versions of the pictures posted.

This does two things it keeps the entry thread cleaner, and identifies that the post is feedback vs. an entry. This makes it much easier to look at the original entries.

It is easy for anyone quoting to do the same thing themselves by editing the quote before posting.

if the original post has a picture like this

the url looks like this

to make it a smaller version just change the bold part S-1 or S to this

that way the images will then look like this

Hopefully this makes sense and will make the thread easier to read.
HINT: use the "Preview Changes" button to make sure your edits worked.
(This will only work for pictures posted that are hosted on SmugMug)
Thanks for keeping us clean Sean!:thumb
