  New categories are up. Happy shooting!

Current Categories: NOVEMBER

Reflections in Water (Nature/Landscape)
Pairs (Animals)
People
Contrasts (Elements of Design)
Digital Composites (Technique)
Travel/Place
Still-Life
Details/Macro
Lighthouses (Man-Made)
Catch-All

So it looks as if we are wide open in half the categories, guided by sub-themes in the other half - a very nice compromise that should make lots of people happy :)

Thanks, Jim.

  Maybe Jim just hasn't finished making up his mind yet on the ones with missing subcategories?

  Nope, Marlon :) He said elsewhere that since half the people he heard from liked the sub-categories and half wanted things wide-open, he decided to try it this way . . . at least for November (I added the "November" part)

  Jim, you need to fix the category for Man-Made for the month of November! The site says Path instead of Lighthouses! Thank you sir!

  Perfect solution. Thanks Jim!! If only you could be an inspiration to those running the government, or trying to...

  Yes! A Still-Life/Flower category without a sub-theme makes me happy. Thanks Jim! I've missed both so much. :)

  Haha Martha :)

Thank you all.

Yes, the Man-Made category is fixed now... Lighthouses. I must have not hit the Enter key on that one.

This should be fun!

Thanks,
Jim

  Much happier with the categories. I would still like animals to be an open category on some occasions but this is a good compromise.

  I may be wrong, but I would expect the open categories to rotate . . . now People, now Animals; now Nature and Landscapes, now Man-Made. It would make no sense to always have a narrow sub-category for Animals, for example, and never nave one for People.

  I hope you're right. At least Jim has been listening. Now I have got a bit of my enthusiasm back again.

  Nikki,

Yes a few many hardly ever (or never) rotate... like Catch-All.

But for the most part the categories that get set to a specific subtheme will rotate.

Have fun!
