Back to my picture and include some street for those who need a street in the picture :)

Here is the museum building opposite to the old Roman Theatre in Nimes.

Hans,

I love your museum photo and the homage to Slobodan.

As for categories, I think some people just want something to argue about, and since politics is now verboten, they prefer to argue about "Street" versus "Landscape," etc.

If I were running things here, I would be tempted to limit the categories to two: "Photos that do something for me," and "Photos that don't do anything for me."    ;)

To make things simple we can limit to two categories. Black and White.

I think an even clearer and simpler list of categories would be

Good Photo Showcase

Bad Photo Showcase

I wouldn't like to be the judge and jury on either of those.

Bad Photo Showcase

I have thousands of these.  But they're subject to a non-disclosure agreement.

You wouldn't have to be, Keith. You could just post away and we could argue away. At least we wouldn't be arguing about politics.  8) :)

Applying some basic mathematic simplification would leave Good and Bad.
And then I hear Ennio Morricone on the background.
That brings us to 3 categories.

Bad
Good
Ugly

Chris, Somehow I missed that one when you posted it. Too much in LuLa to read, I guess. In any case, it's the best definition I've seen in words. It describes the situation very well.
You participated in the thread so I don't know how you missed it.

I wonder, if arguing politics is prohibited. What about political arguing?

Well, golly Fab, I don't know either. I can see that though you read it you had a different problem.

Bad
Good
Ugly
Already did that. The ugly was a demon created by mirroring some images.

I based my suggestion on what many Camera Clubs do. Usually they have:

Landscape can be expanded to include urbanscapes or ruralscapes. Like sunsets, skylines etc.
Critiques- which we have
Nature- which we have
People- can be expanded to include anything people related, such as Street, portraits, narratives, travel, etc.
Architecture-
Monochrome- any mono color or bw image; but as seen fewer people participate, because it is already covered by other categories)
Creative (anything made or manipulated in obvious ways, such as composites, ICM, mix and match images etc.
Photographer's Choice- anything goes (this is where abstracts or non-representational would fit in.)
Theme- images based on theme announced previous year, (such as colors, clouds, narratives, three images that express something, or whatever, but not really applicable to LuLa, added just for interest)

It's a pretty good and broad based list. I would add Street/Urban or anything already popular and/or established. I think there should be some kind of order so that people can find images or know where to look for categories they are interested in reading or posting. And precisely to minimize fighting over genres. One showcase would quickly become unwieldy and people will lose interest. I have seen this on other sites.

I'm actually with Eric on this. However, I regularly toss out stuff I don't like and can't bear to look in the garbage can...delete...delete..."Are your sure"...Yes dammit!

Sorry Hans, love the museum shot.

Or much, much simpler: one forum - Showcase.

Within that forum, anyone can start a thread on whatever theme, genre, etc. It could be a single picture thread, or an open thread. Open threads can develop into multiple pages, just like Robís Without Prejudice.

Then again, why simple when we can complicate it ;)

Hooray for Slobodan! Brilliantly simple, simply brilliant.  8)

But what would we argue about?

Maybe we agree but are going past each other. Suppose I have image that fits into "Abstract", or any other thread, but it is no longer on the first page of showcase (or category), should I then start a new thread? Having basic categories avoids unnecessary duplication and helps and guides the poster on where to post his image. Organization is simplicity. Perhaps one Showcase but with some basic Categories on one and first page. Threads will be within them. At the very least, some threads should be permanent within a Showcase or a category, like "Without Prejudice", or Chain thread, or Abstract. Or any other important and popular threads. All should be accessible on first page of showcase and/or their respective categories. That is my idea. Nothing new or special, just a bit of reorganization. Something to consider.

Corrected, JR

John, threads remain on the first page due to their popularity, I doubt that would change.

True.

But you can pin certain threads to the top, which would be a liberal, PC way of doing it, or you can let the markets decide based on popularity, a conservative way ;)

Which is great until markets are manipulated, at which point dead rotting sharks and Peter Lik will dominate every section of Lula ;)
