Chris (The Yellow Line) I know there was only 9 entries this month ( 8 really, mine doesn't count since I don't take part in the voting) and 22 votes.
When we were running themes they were as many complaints about the monthly topic as there were entries.
If John wants to suggest a topic; by all means go ahead and suggest.
We went quickly with Open Board for March since the person who usually runs the POTM is wandering the USA instead of his native Norway!
We are always open to suggestions and ideas.

Thanks Rob........It just make a better competition when you have a "target" to shoot.  ;)

I like having a "theme" for the month.......I'd also like to see photos be from the current or previous month & not 5,10 or 40 years ago.

Congrats John nice action shot.... It is sad to see that not  many members participate in this. It don't really matter to me if is a  theme or current picture or old picture.  It would  be nice too see more members  get out there and shoot a picture. We were all drawn to this forum due to Hank's love to photograph and share pictures but yet this thread seems to be just  a small percentage of members who participate. In today's world of digital camera's and everyone having a phone that can take a picture it is really simple compared to the days of old of buying film and developing it. I guess the more you make  things simple the more complicated it gets...JMO

Rick,
   I agree  with you on the age of the photo. What difference it does it make when the photo was taken as long
theme. I do like the theme idea. Like you said modern photos are easier to take with all the options available, so we need to see more members participate.

Charlie,
       Putting restrictions on when it was shot has nothing to do with the theme. There are many members here who have been taking photos for years. If the person entering the contest has only started taking photos last month or 10 years ago, so be it.

I guess I couldn't enter one of my Carolina Freight photos under those rules.......

I guess I liken the POTM contest to the POTD shot..........it means you actually have to get out and take a picture no matter what the theme is but whatever the majority wishes is ok with me.
