Blue, Grey or Silver Leaves Challenge finished on Saturday, 24 Jan 2015 This challenge, which has been part of my Leaf Series, is looking for natural blue, grey or silver leaves. Show us the beauty of their unusual colour, details, veins and texture of the leaves. Your entry can be a single leaf or multiple leaves. Other leaves may be in the background, but the blue, grey or silver leaves should be dominant as the subject. Let nature show us the true colour of the leaves, not the result of post-processing. Please, no yellow, green, brown or red leaves in this challenge and no flowers whatever their colour. Macro and close-up photos welcome. Size of entry: 1,600px MAXIMUM on its longer side.
Winner: The Engine Driver

Decisive moment-revisited Challenge finished on Friday, 23 Jan 2015 The decisive moment refers to capturing an event that is ephemeral and spontaneous, where the image represents the essence of the event itself. So... share with us great photos showing a decisive moment.**** I'd like to revisit this subject and go back to the classics – decisive moments captured in the STREET. NOT in the nature or in your backyard. This challenge is for street photographers. Please consult me if you are not sure whether your entry is in line with this challenge theme. **** Check the web for some great examples: http://petapixel.com/2013/08/12/the-decisive-moment-and-the-human-brain/ http://erickimphotography.com/blog/2010/07/01/%E2%80%9Chow-to-masterthe-decisive-moment%E2%80%9D/ I'll review the entries carefully and DQ any entry which will not convince me to be a genuine decisive moment

-My Best Fish Shots- (Full Colours Only + Border) Challenge finished on Thursday, 22 Jan 2015 No, this challenge isn't about a dead fish (or one about to be dead) being hauled and strung up by a silly smiling human being. This challenge is about the beauty and fin-ness (pardon the pun) of one of nature's most elegant creatures. Whether you fancy a Japanese Koi, an awesome Jellyfish, majestic Arowanas, or a simple Gold Fish, now is the time to submit your best shots of beautiful fish. As long as it's alive and it's pretty enough to be seen rather than be eaten; AND it's a species of fish or has a 'fish' to its name, I'll allow it. It's preferable to have one or two fish as the main subject so that we can look at the details in its body, but I'll also allow it if you snapped a whole school of fish. You may submit more than one entry, but please don't submit the same fish(es) in every entry. Put a Border on the photograph. Photo can be taken with any camera, i.e DSLR, SLR, Mirrorless, Compact, Smartphone, etc... .
Winner: Vacuum Tubes

VCR's, reel-to-reel, cassette, original gramophones, your first calculator, first games console. No cameras, nothing made after 1985, no vehicles. Does not need to be in working condition, but must be completely assembled.
