    My apologies if this bends the rules a bit - hopefully it will be fun as well as a challenge.

    Oh no, thematic invention or injecting new challenges is good. And it's your theme to set! :D

    Well - I guess that told me :D

    ... handing back to you guys to sort out a new one.

    Sorry...just nothing came up, or to mind to go out and take.
    A diptych is hard enough without a tightly defined theme.
    Why not just an unspecified diptych? Ease in gently...?

    Agree, tricky theme, bad weather.

    Three weeks to a month is better in this hemisphere in winter.

    theme ok, I had lots of thoughts. Notion of dyptych over complicated matters

    Ditto. I've lost photoshop and dyptych making was a step beyond. Nice idea but couldn't find the hours needed to do it properly. Sry! :)

    ... so sorry guys - didn't realise you were all using full plate film and had to cart your processing lab around with you o_O

    Anyhoo .. as I said, I'll hand it back to you, perhaps someone could put their hand up and set an easier theme. :)

    Perhaps you could post an example of yours and what software you used to produce it?

    I'd appreciate that as well...it's a good idea but how, without post processing?

    I did this since my last post .... so took about 30 mins (including gathering props...)
    Two and a half weeks might have seen a better result - but you get the idea.
    I used my iPhone and a very old copy of Photoshop Elements I got free with a scanner. (other freebie software is available)
    If you look online you can also find examples of simple 'in camera' diptychs that require no assembly ...

    PS - a bit to early for Scotch .. so the glass is empty :D

    Why not set us a new theme, 267; it's still your #265 'win' to use : )

    (I think Pete MB&D nailed the issue here. And I certainly was too lazy to get out and try something... sorry)

    Some good ideas floating around this thread ..

    Maybe something like as suggested - 'Your 2 best shots taken within 50 yards of your front door/gate ... (no front or back gardens please)'

    Time limit: Two months ???
    (although one day would be my preferred option LOL ! )

    ... Leaving it over to you folk to decide :)

    I'm good with this...'Your 2 best shots taken within 50 yards of your front door/gate...(I think, personally, gardens should be included, if people think they can come up with a good image. But if you are horticulture-averse, its your call)
    And am I understanding it is to be a diptych? Or not?
    And a couple of weeks is plenty...IMHO.

    To be honest I don't think I ever want to see the word ever again LOL
    I had been looking at these and thought it might be fun - some great ideas :)

    As to the new theme ... I love flowers, but I think that detracts from the whole idea being discussed over on the other thread which is more about looking around you and stretching your observational skills (and flowers etc deserve their own challenge...)

    OK! I was imagining something more shaped...trouble with being an Art teacher...head full of ornate ideas :)
    I think the 50 yds thing needs to be a search in some way or it's too commonplace?
    Anyway, it's not my idea so wait to see what happens.
