Tom, check your gallery. Lots of techniques and technology in there which would have fit this theme perfectly.

There is a box, yes. Now think outside it.

That you refused to do so is the only bummer. :cry:

Thanks for the encouragement. I just looked thru my gallery.............I really don't see anything that defines or exhibits the concept of "technicality". I'm just not seeing it. I guess my idea of what the word "technical" mens is a bit different than yours.

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I would call your car setup, technically innovative.

Agree, Tom's photomobile is definitely a dedicated piece of technical machinery.

I think I'm beginning to understand now........although I would never have thought that there was anything technical about that photo or the way in which it was created. I tend to think of "technical" as being highly complex.
When someone issues a Speed Challenge, they are giving a category, and all entries are supposed to fit into that category. Otherwise the theme would just be "OPEN".

I tend to like things to fit very tidily into categories. That's the way my brain works. I often have ideas for threads that I would like to start here on POTN, but I do not post them because there is no category into which it could precisely fit. For instance, in the "Competitions" sub-forum, there are many group-sharing threads in which the members are not actually competing against one another. This bugs me to no end!

Anyway, just explaining my way of thinking and why I hesitate to share anything that isn't a good, literal fit for the challenge that people present. I believe that the more one thinks "outside the box", the more poorly the entry fits into the criteria for the challenge. It'd be like someone calling for "White", and having someone respond with a very pale shade of grey - it's not what was asked for, and it doesn't fit the parameters of the thread........therefor​e it should not be posted. I would never want to be "that guy" who posts things that don't really fit into what the challenge host was asking for.

By the way, I really miss Teekay, and I wish that he would start engaging in these challenges again. That dude was cool!

Hopefully my "Way Back When" theme is open-ended enough without seeming too aimless. The idea came to mind because of the image I posted for the last contest. Not only was the machinery from Way Back When, but the image itself was taken with my long-gone T1i years ago.

I do see what you are saying. I try to make it more of an open-ended prompt rather than a closed topic. Maybe that makes me more of a photo-essayist rather than the traditional competitor.
