In keeping with the original concept of POW, I am moving this thread to a forum that permits discussion of the images. As we all know, the NWF does not permit this.
I could never understand the concept of N/W. Why, what is wrong with being able to comment on a photo you like, or, make a suggestion.
Are folks that so sensitive about their photography?
Anyway, a constructive improvement.is my thought.
The reason you can't understand the concept of No Words is that you're thinking about it from the wrong perspective.
Why do you assume that No Words implies there's something wrong with being able to comment on a photo? There's nothing wrong with being able to comment on a photo. Everywhere else on this site, except No Words, is geared toward commenting on photos.
Think about it this way, there's a Street and Documentary Forum, right? That forum doesn't tell us there's something wrong with Still Life photos or Landscapes. It tells us it's not the place for them. There are also black and white forums. Those forums don't suggest that there's something wrong with color. It's just a place reserved for black and white.
The No Words forum is simply a unique exercise that people enjoy. I think about it as a picture conversation. I don't think it means there's something wrong with commenting on a photo.
I'm intrigued by Jon's photo, the lit doll, casting an involving shadow, all happening outside the confines of what I take to be a picture frame. Nice work with artificiality in layers.

Interesting thoughts and constructive, Sam
Nice to be able to comment on a photo and offer constructive thoughts )
We have heard the axiom the "A picture is worth a thousands words". To me it is very enjoyable to see how you photographers say that with the pictures....very nice to not have a ton of text with the posting.
Now that Michaellinder has started this, we can have both methods. Seems a good thing to me.
Minor point - is this for photos taken 'this' week ? If so, when does the week start, and should this be included in the thread title ?
