Winner: African Daisy
Daisy, Daisy.... Challenge finished on Saturday, 05 Sep 2015 This challenge is all about daisies, one of the largest families of flowering plants in the world, (Asteraceae, also called Compositae). They are found everywhere on Earth except Antarctica. A daisy is actually two flowers in one: the coloured petals and the cluster of (usually) tiny disc petals that form the "eye". Your daisies should be outside in the natural environment, alive, and not inside your home in a vase. The entry can be a single daisy or whole fields of them, viewed at ground level, from below or from above. Insects or spiders can be present, but should not dominate the the picture. No photos of humans or their pets will be accepted here, and no photos of roses, hibiscus, tulips, waterlilies; just flowers which are, or look like daisies. Macro and close-ups welcome. Size of entry: 1,600px maximum.
August flying Challenge finished on Friday, 04 Sep 2015 Flying in August pictures. Any picture related to aviation and human flight, taken between 1st and 31st of August, based on the EXIF file information. The year doesn't matter.
VSCO Film 06: Alternative Process Films Challenge finished on Friday, 04 Sep 2015 The idea for this challenge is to edit photos using the VSCO film preset 06. The subject is open to anything as long as it's appropriate. Must have the original and the edited photo posted side by side. This preset must be bought from the website. I hope this can help anyone on the fence about VSCO presets. Presets available here http://vsco.co/store Review of film available here http://www.fotothrive.com/2015/04/01/every-vsco-film-preset-compared/

- Shadows Lifted - (Full Colours Only + Border + Title watermark) Challenge finished on Thursday, 03 Sep 2015 Take a well composed landscape genre dayshot photo and process it (in camera or post processed) to lift the shadows. If there are humans they should not be significant (less than 0.5% of the photo area.). Put a Border on the photograph and watermark a Title on your entry. Photo can be taken with any camera, i.e DSLR, SLR, Mirrorless, Compact, Smartphone, etc... .
Panning. Challenge finished on Thursday, 03 Sep 2015 Panning is a skill used to show speed and blur. It is often used in sports photography. Put your camera onto M mode or shutter priority, and dial in your shutter speed etc. I have found that 1/30th of a second works better with slower subjects all the way to 1/100th for faster subjects. When panning you need to twist at the hips. Focus on your subject or pre focus where you feel the subject will be, and follow your subject all the way through the pan. Keep it smooth for best results.
Winner: Night at McWay Falls, Big Sur

Natures Monumental Monuments (with Border and Title suiting a postcard) Challenge finished on Monday, 31 Aug 2015 This week the picture postcard is for all the Ansel Adams fans out there. Go forth and photograph Natures Monumental Monuments. Half Dome is a target this week, and if downunder then take a walkabout to Ayers Rock. Go to Monuments National Park for a blast, or even head over to the Fjords in Norway! How bout a giant Oak, or maybe a Californian Redwood. Remember the rules, for I have no qualms for booting off images that do not follow the rules.
Winner: Dean Mumm
