I'd say one entry would be best. that way people would only choose their best or put more thought in to the shot.

Not entering because of shitty phone quality, but here's an extreme angle!

I have one that I think is perfect for this but I didn't take it FOR this so I guess it doesn't count :(

 

I was just planning to dig through my old archive and choose a photo that fits the theme. Just enter it!!!

doesn't that defeat the purpose of having a monthly challenge though? :erm: I mean I have thousands of photos from New York and Europe and shit that would be relevant, but I could just keep recycling them each month without bothering to take a new photo at all.

eh, rules didn't specify. I know lots of people who recycle old photos for 365 challenges so I assumed it'd be alright. What say you, Matthijs?

Only submit one new images, taken by you for the challenge

 

That answers the question, doesn't it?

 

Great challenge idea, I doubt I'll have enough time to find something but if I do I'll submit.

I wouldn't think that would be allowed either! The point of 365 is to take a photo every day, not just upload one you took 3 years ago.

Is the extreme angles thing subjective? Like I don't know whether to do a photo of something taken at an extreme angle, or of something which is an extreme angle in itself. Makes it so difficult to choose. :(

 

Ah well, here's the latter.

 

86 degrees of 'extreme'...

I won't win, it's just cool taking part yo.

I'd say it's subjective, I think the original idea was probably "taken from an extreme angle" but any spin on the theme is fitting. I like this!

 

Might as well post my submission in here too:
