So no twist this time? I remember you saying something last time along the lines of "The twist I had planned for DVC5 will have to wait for DVC6", and here we are. I see no twist, sir. Contest seven, I presume? Or has it been abandoned altogether?

The twist is there is no twist. :)

Honestly, yeah, I did have one planned for use with a different theme, but I liked this one so much just as it was that I figured I'd let it go as is.

Actually... I had the sun in my DVC #2 entry... "the sun might be one of the secret ingredients in what we are now about to see..." To bad I can't leave in same entry twice. ;)

I might be showing my years of experience here (or lack of), but isn't it bad to point your camera at the sun? Or is that just for stills? Or is that just a myth?

Oh Great. Now you tell me. I've been shooting sun shots for the past hour. Is it bad that there is smoke coming out of my camera?

As long as your camera doesn't actually burst into flames it should be alright.

Anyways.

THE SUN!?

Isn't that more of a thing than a theme? Or is it just me.
Okay, so Dylan... does it actually have to do with the sun, or can the sun or characteristics of the sun just be involved in the storyline?

Does the word have to be interpreted by its spelling, or can it be interpreted phonetically? As in other words that sound the same.

I dunno Joey, you tell me. :) That is the theme, you can do whatever you like with it. The better you use it creatively, with a good story, the more likely you are to do well in the judging.


Andrew, the sun means the sun, that big fireball doohicky in the sky.
