I was looking back on the old POTW & thought why not a POTM instead. And at the end of the year we could look back & vote for the POTY. guitar.gif shrugsmiley.gif smhug.gif flyingsmiley.gif

evidently you've never seen my incompatibilities within the photographic world. i'm also crayon challenged and barely passed the Ray Charles driving school. This one is definitely a challenge to me, i never could take a decent picture. Is there a rookie and a professional category Zoot? i'll shut up now

I agree pic "o" the month should also be easier to keep up and maintain.And I would be in that rookie category too,put my hand straight out no shaking,put a camera in my hands and all of a sudden i'm shaking like a leaf in a storm :lol:.Oh well POTM and POTY is my vote.

I am by no means a photographer, I just point & shoot, but it would be nice to have a pic/camera thread to talk about such things. I know that someone here has all the info to share.

I like your thinking, I would say that the photos should be inline with the seasons & or holiday for that month. (If you do not celebrate the holiday that's fine as well, it will not be required)
