UWOL #3 THEME ANNOUNCEMENT - Get after it!

The theme for this month is (drum roll please)...

THE WILD

yes, that's it! whatever means you can think of to depict this concept--whether animal, mineral, or vegetable. (Or even human, for those of you who didn't get enough of our previous theme.) We're looking for the entry which best explores this mysterious, ineffable thing which summons us into nature and the outdoors.

It's very wide open to interpretation in terms of content, but your very challenging job is to try to approach the essence.

Good luck! Get after it!

It took me all of around a minute to come up with a concept and a title. Now it all depends on if I can get the shots I want.

This should be fun.

The Wild

That's a great theme Meryem.
And I feel so free to quote from Steppenwolfs hit, "Born to be wild".

"Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

Like a true nature's child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die
Born to be wild
Born to be wild"

I wish you all good luck on uwol#3.

What an excellent theme!

I can't wait to start on this one. It looks like I will have to start working on a concept here....

I already did a-bit of research on the term "wild." It came up with some interesting things...

Best of luck to y'all!

Great theme! :-D

Are there any limitations to the file-length / -size / -format?

Did I miss it, or is there no restriction on file size listed on that page?

I see the frame size restriction, and the duration restriction, but no file size restriction.

we are trying to permit slightly larger file sizes to enhance compression quality. so you're right. the cat's out of the bag. we are upping the file size to 60mb. e-mail on that issue (and a few others) forthcoming....

mat is updating a few items on the website right now, so you probably are catching him in progress....
