Next year’s [PlayRaw Calendar] is ready. It was a difficult selection as it was last year, and formal criteria again had the biggest impact. E.g., for a landscape-shaped calendar, most portrait-oriented images hardly make sense, and these that are in were victim of highly creative cropping by me. A reasonable print resolution was another criterion that had to be met, and I had to cheat with several pictures and reprocess them.
I checked again that there are photographs and edits of as many different people as possible in, but, in contrast to last year, we have some double nominations.
Due to my private time constraints (especially my kids are demanding, the younger one is just 8 weeks old), this was a last minute work. Therefore, please don’t tell me if you find any mistakes or errors .
Technically, it follows last years calendar, but the daylight saving time shifts have been removed, since these are different in different countries. The same affects the moon phases as well, they may be shifted by one day if there are different daylight saving regulations in your country, because some moon phase changes are within ±1 hour around midnight and may shift to the other day in where you are living.
The software involved is again LuaLaTeX for the calendar strips and Scribus for putting everything together. Some images were reprocessed in darktable based on the original xmp files or the embedded xmp in the original uploads.
