This thread is for any comments that you would like to make on the entries in the December Photo Challenge submissions.

Additionally, if you have any other shots that you have taken on the subject that didn't quite "make the cut", but you still want to share with the IIS community, then, please, post them here too.

This month's theme is ... 'Anything/s in your Bathroom'

Some nice ideas there Bob, thank you .
I think this challenge calls for portrait photography with a 50mm lens . I have something in mind to try .
Wish this challenge was issued after my bathroom got renovated , I have two challenges now .
Bedrooms and bathrooms are two very personal spaces of a home and my extra challenge will be trying*not* to reveal too much of it .

LOL Bob, no Don Burke subjects... Hahaha.
I think his reputation is pretty much in the toilet now.

Congratulations on your win buddy.
Nice topic choice, a challenge for sure.
I remember picking toothbrush as a topic once, lol.

Cheers everyone and keep up the fantastic work you do Mr PC.

Sounds good Suzy, 50mm, close-ups etc, agree & where lies the challenge in many ways, these days, every man & his dog has a camera, point at a tree, bird, sunset what have you,Lol, but who out of them can make something of a bathroom ? _ I didnt even think of a topic really, just that Hmmm, and 'Bathroom' pop in the grey mass, Lol & went with it, so, I'm as surprised as anyone, if not more so, Lol
Good Luck, I'm sure you will enter something interesting :-)

They're the rejects???
I'm in trouble .
Note to self: Don't try water shots

They're awesome pics, how do you make it look blue please? I wouldn't mind trying this one day, I haven't tried water photography yet- I'm still learning.

Bob, when you get a moment can you please message me on fb and tell me what Don Burke did? I'm beyond curious now! I'd google but I wouldn't have a clue what to search as.

We have had to change to a shower curtain & other bathroom mods for missus's disabilities, more room, no ledge for shower door so feet dont need lifting over - wheelchair right in

Ever seen a shower curtain from this angle

Mmmm, tricky subject, eh, - this subject will sort the photogs, from the happy-snappers <- this duck included
Doubt there be much in the way of the 'WOW" factor in this month, but dig deep, lets see what we can come up with

All is Vanity

This is what I usually find in the bathroom, but I'm always in two minds about what to do with my hair

Tough one this month Bob.
Everybody's got one (hopefully)
Many have more than one!
Yet only 6 submissions.

at least we survived the Censors ... and the "Toilet Humour" ...
well mostly.
