    Default Budshot of the Month Discussion Thread

    Sorry guys, I accidentally deleted the original thread somehow while removing a certain members posts. Not sure how it happened.

    By "one entry per month" are we considering this to be one plant or one picture?

    Don't matter, a budshot is still a budshot if there are 1 or 10 plants in the pic.

    Multiple images of the same plant/plants are fine.

    I'd think it should be one picture. It is, after all a "bud SHOT".

    Though ideally a bud shot should be a single picture of a single plant.

    The poll ends on the 8th. When you vote, it displays the end date on the poll results.

    Congratulations, man. She was a beauty. Just thick with crystal, and you caught those diamonds in the shot. i.e. Not just a good plant, but good photography as well.

    If the current results can be viewed before voting then there can be unintended pressure to follow the crowd or your forum buddies, but I had actually chosen to stay out partly for the reason I just stated and also because some of the posted pics were of lesser quality photos but bud you'd happily accept compared with top notch pics of top shelf bud and it became a question of how much depended on the photo skills and how much depended on the growing.

    Is a fantastic pic of a nug better or lesser than a merely good shot of an impressive cola?

    And, of course, for a while I was discounting any entry with more than one pic until I posted the question above.

    I do have an attitude, so to speak, that I should refrain from any contest etc that I may unintentionally influence. Lol, you've noticed that, eh?

    A blurry pic doesn't tell me whether it's a nice crystalline bud. It tells me there is a vaguely bud-shaped thing in front of the camera. Beyond that, I cannot judge, so I move on to the pics that are in focus.

    I used to have a relatively crappy 2.2MP digicam. It had a lot of trouble focusing on what I *wanted* it to focus on, so I'd often take a dozen shots of one bud, then keep just 1-2 of the photos that were in focus.

    I had mentioned taking a few dozen shots several months back, and you replied that had I *really* been a photographer I'd have shot a couple of rolls then tossed them all out

    Jokes aside, that really is the way to do it: take many photos with a digital camera in a decent resolution and toss out every single one that is not in focus or does not have the bud in frame. If it's not going to be useful then don't hang on to it.

    Once you've narrowed it down to the final few you can shift between them in an image viewer to decide which on captures the essence of the bud.

    ..failing that, pick that one that looks better and cross your fingers, it won't help but if it makes you feel better go for it.

    I hate to challenge, but this is a for fun contest. Right now we have no prizes to offer, so why should we expect shots like @DoobieDuck's . Maybe in the future we can have the "Pro shot of the year"(it is coming, and will have prizes), but for now lets keep it to where everyone can participate.

    Just suggesting an option for those with cheap cameras like mine was. If you don't have a quality camera with macro lens, taking a whole pile of shots and then picking and choosing the best of them works. It's not like it uses up *film* or anything to use that approach.

    How about a tag for winning the contest or maybe a closed Honorable thread of past winners ?
