I just finished this week's Basic 70x50 FaP, which pictures the I'timād-ud-Daulah, the tomb of Mirza Ghiyas Beg, in Agra, India.  I was going to come in here and thank you for this particular puzzle, as it is not only quite realistic, but also a lot of fun, and is the sort of puzzle which I would most like to see.

Then I decided that it might be a good idea to set up a poll, asking folks to select their favorite types of puzzle subjects.  I've tried to be as inclusive as I can, but have left an "other" option, in which case I would ask you describe the subject type that you would like to see.

There is no deadline to this, although I expect that it will run down in a couple of months, unless someone digs through the older posts and adds a comment.  Please only vote once!  If you want to expand on an earlier comment, that's fine, but please only cast a vote one time.  You can vote for more than one type. 

Thanks!  Looking forward to seeing how this goes

Thank you posting this query.  I do have preferences, so I like having some input.

In addition to my favorite categories, I chose Other on general principal.  I always include an Other option when I design a poll.  In this particular area of interest, I believe that we all want to encourage creative thinking, so I'd love to see what original ideas people can imagine.

Just wanted to give a big "Thanks!" to all those who have cast a vote so far.  I was ill for a couple of weeks and while I did manage to stop by a couple of times for a little puzzling during my convalescence, I didn't have much mental energy to spare for writing. 

While hardly scientific, I think the numbers so far show a certain trend.  I don't expect (nor would I actually want) cartoon-style animals and people to vanish completely, but I do think that landscapes and real animals (the deer and mountains LaP last week was great!) and architecture pictures have more adherents than, perhaps, anyone realized

My 'other' is well-known objects, often art. Michelangelo's David, George Washington in profile, etc. The Abbey Road puzzle is an excellent example, though it doubles as realistic people. ;-) For that matter, some of the architecture category fits here too.

i am not sure where to put this but seeing as people are talking about what the puzzles are of, may i just mention that i noticed that (at least) two of this weeks LAPs have a common theme.... i havent started the mega LAP yet so dont know if it relates to the theme at all too. the theme i noticed was Gods in Hinduism and Buddhism

(highlight it to see what it says)

ps. i am in high school and when i saw this theme i was very excited because i had just finished learning about it, and i predicted it before it was finished. it was exciting to see that i was right!
