I support Julie with the idea of 2 weeks per session. Furher, I'm 100% for the idea of wrapping things up at the end theway you suggest Greg; that way one will be able to test yourself and an opportunity to discuss new problems or questions that arrive in ones mind.

Wow!
This is getting to be a very clear message about the time.
I am willing to have the class be that big (8 Weeks) but....

Do you think that the energy will fade without a weekly session?
Should I plan on a weekly session even without new materials?

and what about how much it should cost??

I am completely open to suggestions here.
Greg

If I may jump in here: I  think a session every 2 weeks is fine. I suppose there will be communication via messages in between.
For me, I'm happy to pay $100 (USA)

I think there sure definitely be a weekly group session -- class members, hopefully, will be working through the material in an ongoing way and will have questions/comments on their own and other's work which will be posted to the course blog and will benefit from a weekly group discussion.  I can also imagine that a lot of ancillary but relevant issues will arise that will make for interesting group discussions.

How much should it cost?  Well, $100, as Ganna suggests, for eight weeks is $12.50 per week for each student. That seems kind of low.
I would think at least twice that -- $200, or even $300.  The more people pay the more they'll want their money's worth and will work harder to make sure they get it (in theory anyway).
On the other hand, you don't want to exclude people who are really motivated but can't afford more than $100.

So, I guess I don't know!

Hi
A weekly discussion would be good. 
Maybe not I everyone will attend every session but the option would be good.
But.... this does increase your responsibility Greg.
Not sure what this should cost.
$$100 seems too low but $300 too high.
On that basis I would suggest $175-$225..

I am now home and will review week 4 again and give comments.

Staying up late for the next 2 weeks watching le tour de france.
Wonderful colours and paterns and of course the excitement of the race.
Its my dream to be able to photograph it one day.

I can probably do it.
The timing is probably going to be an issue for me but I'll do the best I can.
I'm jetlaged anyway and :)
Let me know the time.

Julie.

Starting on week 4. 

BTN- one of the things that I do during color correction is over-saturate my corrected image and see what "blows up."  A blue or red jacket will certainly go.  Faces will get blown.  Do the shadows get too blue, does the black dress change color?  Etc.

Later I run into another problem.  After correction then later boosting, I have trouble judging too much color.  What do you use to check for a sky too blue or a face too red or grass too green.  A?  B?  If done correctly, the hue arm will show the "right time", but perhaps too long. 

I sometimes do fun images.  Colorful, but no attempt at accuracy.  I will over-saturate as long as it doesn't "blow."  However a natural photo like a landscape or wildlife I will attempt to properly saturate, then sleep on it or back off somewhat.  Most of the time I do both if for the web. 

Sample size- I will do the assignment.  I find searching for shadow and / or highlight is a little problematical.  Sometimes those spots are very small, but important.
