Panachallenge #146 Edgy is under way.
"The artist should have an obvious compositional purpose in making one or more of the four edges of the frame dramatically important components of the image. Image edge(s) can be used dramatically by: - having the subject abruptly ending at an edge; - having the subject bisected by an edge; - having the main subject seemingly crammed into the corner formed by two edges; - having shapes interacting in opposition to the edge(s) or the whole rectangular volume; - having shapes complimenting the edge(s) or the whole rectangular volume. See examples below. (created by tvsometime )"

Entry period: Thu 24 Jul through Thu 14 Aug 23:59:59 UTC
Voting: Fri 15 Aug through Mon 18 Aug 23:59:59 UTC

You may submit entries taken with a Panasonic Lumix (and their Leica cousins) digital camera to the main category, and/or you may submit entries taken with any digital camera to the open category. The theme applies to both categories.

Your photo for either category must be taken during the entry period, starting Thu 24 Jul.

thanks to Mrsawyer with some examples should help to get the creative juices for this challenge.
would it be possible for future challenges so that the setter could give some thoughts on what they would expect???

Maybe I'm the only one to say it, but I noticed there was no "created by" with this theme.

So I have no idea who I am going to offend here, but am I the only one or do the photo samples provided just look like missed shots? I think I just don't get it. Tried googling for some further examples but came up with nothing.

Ahhhhh, I can see the beginning of a great dialogue about this challenge!

jadeO is this the sort of thing.

(forkcandles- I fixed your link so that your photo was large enough to discern. Also changed the https references to http in your bbcode. Otherwise the links don't work. - mrsawyer)

By missed shot I mean slicing off the top of the head, not getting the cam to vertical before pressing the shutter, missed timing, the that sort of thing.

I'm SO tempted to contribute some of my 'misses' but after seeing the work of fc and Jade I think we should have a mini challenge devoted to them. I think we could have a lot of fun with it and I'm sure we have all been there :-)

Perhaps this link might be closer to what was intended?

So it should be clear by now that I created the challenge with generous comment and contributions of administrators.
I was taught back in 1970's college art classes that the edges are, like it or not, part of the composition and not only a container for an image. My photography professor was particularly interested in seeing more active/aggressive imaging as opposed to static/standard compositions - more of a photojournalistic, spontaneous approach as in street photography.
Jade O describes a "missed shot" as in one example "slicing off the top of the head". But is it a "missed" shot if the head is deliberately sliced off? So I take "missed" to mean "not tasteful" or "ugly". but to my eye, such treatment can add to the dynamism of the shot, say, as if the person is just entering the frame. This might not be to all viewers' taste but it may still be the creator's intention. The voters can then determine what is "missed", however we define it.

My hope is that we will see some shots that might not fit popular rules of composition and make the viewer much more conscious of the effect of the edge(s) on the image - be it a "missed" or accidental effect or something more obviously deliberate and successful.
