Sensory Overload in Nature Challenge finished on Saturday, 12 Mar 2016 Sometimes nature can overload our senses, so we lose the ability to appreciate its beauty and magnificence. Nature's natural colours can be very flamboyant, or geographically, a landscape can so huge and inspiring, (the Grand Canyon or Niagara Falls), deserts can be too vast, oceans too deep, that we lose our sense of perspective. Very vivid flowers, or brilliant autumn leaves might be examples of this sensory overload. In your entry, let NATURE take centre-stage, so don't saturate your image in post-processing. Vivid sunrises and sunsets should appear natural. This is a NATURE challenge, so humans, man-made structures should be minimal, and no domestic pets. Macro and close-ups welcome. Size of entry, 1,600 pixels on its longer side.

The Green Green Grass of Home. Challenge finished on Thursday, 10 Mar 2016 Throughout history the sweeping vistas of fields and grasslands with or without animals have been a subject for art. Early humans drew bison and other game in the grasslands on cave walls. Monet, Renoir, Dupre and Van Gogh all visited this scene and interperated it their own way. The Renaissance art movement had many fine examples of pastoral scenes. Even Windows XP had their own version with Bliss, photographed by Charles O'Rear. The challenge is to capture a pastural scene. No houses, no buildings, just rolling fields. Please no "lone tree" images. if the field(s) is/are not the subject matter the image will be DQd.

Animal - Eye Contact Challenge finished on Wednesday, 09 Mar 2016 In this challenge, post your best photo of an animal making direct eye contact with the lens. Any photos of an animal that is not looking directly at the lens will be disqualified. All types of animals are fine but please do not submit photos of people. I am looking for animals only. It is fine if the photo is cropped so only one eye is showing as long as eye contact is still being made. Macros and black and white photos are both welcome.
