The thought on this is the fact that although the competition forces people to take pictures between set dates, as we all know this sometimes due to work, family or whatever it is not practicle, hence people do not bother entering. If an archive photo could be used then this may increase competition entries.
Not sure who the big boss is for this topic but just a thought, I know many a time I think I could use this or that photo but the weather has been rubbish and therefore not bothered.
What's the thoughts?
I have to say I personally like the rule of taking it within the time frame like DD but I do understand where you are coming from Jeff, I struggle some weekends due to familly comitments etc.
Having said that I don't really mind however I think if we do change the rule that archive photos are allowed we should have the stipulation the image may only be used once otherwise we could see the same images re-occuring.
If we do change the rules personally I will probably take a shot each week anyway but then that is my personal choice.
One other thing to consider is maybe extend the timeframe to a week to take the shot with 2 days voting maybe just a thought!
I think you are absolutley right to raise this though as I would hate to see this come to an end and as it stands currently I have entered a few shots I am not happy with to keep numbers up (christmas being an example).
What do others think?
We are now villagers but we are not savages!
