Welcome to Mini-Challenge #177 -

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!!
************************************************** *****************************

OUR UN-OFFICIAL GENERAL RULES
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 becomes the next host, chooses the next topic and becomes the next judge.
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.
5. You may comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you some critique or criticism, just ask within your post.
6. 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.

IMPORTANT: ENTRIES DUE NO LATER THAN 9PM PACIFIC TIME ON SATURDAY, 9 NOVEMBER!!!

Guidelines:
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 starting 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 using the prior formats) and post your Winner and runners-up. It is important to have runners up in case the winner does not show within the 72-hour window.
6. PM the winner with this info above and let them know they have 72 hours to set up the next mini-challenge.
7. If the winner does not show/start the next mini-challenge after 72 hours, 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 next mini challenge!

    Kate, this is a great mini challenge! I would like to play along, but please do not consider them for the challenge when you choose. I love faces and capturing human emotion. I had been a photographer for year for the local theater and it was always my challenge to capture all kinds of emotion for pre production marketing materials. Here are just a few.

    This one ended up being the poster for the play "It Runs in the Family", You can see several emotions in this, each actor was shot separately and then I composed the poster image.

    This was from "The Sting" got some anger and fear in this one.

    This one is from "The Pink Panther". Total craziness

    Hi Photoaddict,

    Really nice photos and always nice to see newcomers to the Dgrin challenges area.
    I'm not sure if you realised but unfortunately this mini competition closed some time ago - no harm posting I guess, but thought you should know.

    You might want to also consider posting in the "Never ending alphabet challenge" or the new mini challenge to be launched soon as I think the "transportation" one has just closed, just waiting for the winner of that to be announced who will then launch a new challenge. Make sure you read the first post in these threads as it generally sets out the rules, deadlines etc.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

    Alan

    PS - Your posting technique is obviously good.
