Saturday, 2pm, Time Stamp, no theme.

Overview:

Participants will make pictures for the Time Stamp project. There is no theme this round. Photograph whatever is happening, or make something happen. However, the catch is that your picture(s) must be made at 2:00pm, your local time, on Saturday afternoon. Post your pictures (up to 3) on this thread. Sit back and await fame and recognition, and maybe a spiffy new virtual award.

If you're new to the Time Stamp idea here's the overview: here at MobiTog we have participants all over the world, in many different time zones. What if everyone made a picture at 2pm on Saturday, of whatever is going on, wherever they happen to be, and share that picture on Time Stamp. We should end up with a global snapshot of what is going on everywhere at 2 pm. This could be ordinary, humorous, puzzling, but it is bound to be interesting. The Time Stamp title comes from the metadata that is added to every new photo at the time it is shot, the creation date and time.


Please see the Rules and Guidelines for MobiChallenges posted HERE

Rules:

- Standard Mobitog image rules apply. Images must be captured/created & edited entirely on a mobile device such as a mobile phone or tablet.

- All images must be shot between 2:00pm to 2:10pm, local time. Any editing must be done within that time frame. In other words, don't rely on extensive image manipulation or compositing. These things are allowed, but must be accomplished within the 10 minute window of opportunity. Better to concentrate on capturing a unique moment at 2pm. Be careful not to remove the creation time & date from your image metadata.

- You are free to photograph something actually happening, or nothing happening, or make something happen, or to create your own image from scratch, as long as it and any added parts or layers are photographed within the 2:00 to 2:10pm window of opportunity.

- You may enter up to 3 images. To reward your enthusiasm you can have an extra 5 minutes for each additional image (up to 2), after 2pm for your extra 2 shots. This means, if you choose to enter 3 pictures, your total window of opportunity will be 20 minutes in total. If you are submitting one image your window of opportunity remains the original 10 minutes. Remember, that includes editing time.

- Post your images to this thread. Images posted using the Mobitog app at 1024px are perfectly OK. No need to send high resolution images via Safari.

- Closing date: entries must be posted no later than 2pm the following day (Sunday). There's no point in delaying since any editing must be completed within the official window of opportunity. You can post your images right away after making them but if you happen to be in a situation where this is not possible, you have 24 hours.

- Have some creative fun!

Any questions? Let's try to get them sorted out before the big day.


Now Weekly!:

• Time Stamp has become a regular weekly event! We will stick to the current Saturday at 2 pm time slot for a while until we decide to try some other time. This week will have no theme but other weeks might (so pay attention!).

• There will be an overview after each event to discuss any observations of things of special interest.

• AWARDS! There will be some new virtual awards spontaneously made up as the occasions arise. The award winner will gain the privilege of wearing (flaunting), for one week, the virtual hat/cape/glasses/etc. associated with that award. Topics might be photojournalism, humour, documentary, brilliant observation, street photography, decisive moment, that was unexpected!, quick thinking under duress, inspired making of instant art, doing the best you can in a boring situation, etc. I will present the awards but participants may nominate other participants for awards of merit and even invent new awards as they see fit.

- Imagine being able to wear the Glowing Crown of Omnipotence for a whole week, where your every opinion expressed must accepted and acknowledged as undeniable truth.

Tips on setting alarms: you can use the Calendar app to set 2 alerts. I like to set the first alert 1 hour ahead in case I have completely forgotten (where's my phone!)(my battery is dead). The second alert I set 15 minutes ahead so I can get ready. You can create a second event at the same time for more alerts! Maybe set your alarm clock to go off right at 2pm to make you jump. Set another alarm to let you know when your time is up.

If you would like to join in the fun, just post a message below saying "I'm in!"

Nearly missed the deadline. We were on our way back from Wales and yet another photo of a boring road. We were an hour from home at this point.

Notice the dead bugs on the Landy's windscreen.

A bit of Bluristic to make it seem more interesting. :confused:

We're home now with our feet up, a cup of tea and a decent wi-fi. :)

2pm found me out working in the yard. I hustled about to make some pictures and was surprised at some of what I found. All with iPhone 6 & Fusion.

The pink Turtlehead is gloriously in bloom. With the close-up lens the background goes nicely out of focus.

The apples are ready to pick!

Walking back behind some trees I came to an unmowed area full of purple Asters.
I tried some edits with other apps and still preferred the originals.

I'm at home, cooking potatoes. [emoji15] Not the most exciting image to post as my First Ever Image Taken With the Brand New iPhone 7 Plus. :barf:

I did try out the new zoom feature...but there was a lot of heat coming out of the oven directly at my new Precious [emoji23] so I kind of rushed the shot. [emoji849][emoji12]

Shot, edited and cropped in the native camera app.

Not sure I said "I'm in!"...but here I am... it is free Museum Day in Saint Petersburg. We went to the Florida Holocaust Museum... first time the line was around the building, so we went to lunch. When we returned to catch the trolley, not much of a line, we happened to be wrapping up when my alarm went off on my 6 Plus... I am carrying that and my new 7 Plus until I download my apps. So they are all taken with my brand new iPhone 7 Plus, my second day with my new phone!! :D

Anyway...

Your iPhone 7 image is far superior to my measly 6. I have to wait until June for the upgrade! [emoji24] Lovely cookware, by the way.
I appreciate that! But truthfully I can't see the difference... :confused:
My mom got me a Le Creuset set when I graduated from university in 1986, and they're still going strong. :inlove: They're heavy, but amazing to cook with.
