Thanks for your help. I'll add those up there. (:

Edit: I want to start these up again but not if no one's interested! So, interest check? Who would participate?

I could probably take part. I've taken a liking to photography more recently so I would love to experiment with new themes and subjects.

If anyone wants to see a particular theme from the list (or not from the list) used next month or whenever, you're free to say so here!

Hm, perhaps rather than a set subject, there could be a set 'technique'/style this time around? Think things like close-ups, black and white (with attention to contrast), or a certain angle such as from below. I don't know if this would create difficulties during the judging, but perhaps this would make the next month a bit more accessible. I'd imagine the subjects wouldn't really matter, as long as it was flora/fauna/nature related.

Otherwise, something bird-related would be nice!

Yeah I'm willing to give one of those techniques a go next month, I don't see the harm in experimenting with how these themes work, especially early on. (: Thanks for the suggestion!

Anduril has an interesting idea, a stylized or technique based contest would be interesting. But I'm also okay with bird photography, I feel like that's really accessible.

This looks cool. I would definitely participate if I could figure out the logistics.

Maybe insects and spiders? I don't know, some people might really hate that.
You could do butterflies though.
