-The Beauty of Islamic Architecture - (Full Colours Only + Border + Title watermark) Challenge finished on Thursday, 24 Oct 2013 Take a dayshot of an Islamic styled building (not just a small part of the wall or ceiling) from the outside showing the building and hopefully some surroundings. It is preferable not to have people in the shot. However if that cannot be avoided, then kindly keep the people elements to a minimum. (limit is 5%of the photo area). Put a Border and Title Watermark on the photograph itself. Photo can be taken with any camera, i.e DSLR, SLR, Mirrorless, Compact, Smartphone, etc... Sunset/sunrise shots are acceptable provided they are not those silhouette type of shots. Kindly provide some brief explanation should the building not have easily identifiable / obvious Islamic references. Each member may submit 3 entries and each must be a different building.

Turkey: Its People Challenge finished on Thursday, 24 Oct 2013 As our journey though the Middle East continues, we now hit Turkey. If you've been fortunate enough to visit, you've probably been taken by how friendly the people are. Let your photos show this. Or, show how salesmen can be pushy? Or how cute the kids are. Environmental or traditional portraits are fine. As usual for my challenges, Entrants are required to (1) vote for each other entry, (2) read the comments (if any) below this challenge, in case I or other entrants post with Rules questions or clarifications, and (3) follow each of the challenge rules...including voting WITHIN THE FIRST SIX DAYS of the challenge.

The editors are looking for a good image to illustrate that point. They are specifically looking for an image of someone running or something to do with running (e.g., running shoes). They absolutely do not want high caliber athletes competing in a race and do not want any recognizable faces. They have suggested close-ups of shoes hitting the ground, joggers shot from behind, running shoe footprints, silhouettes, etc.
