Shallow Depth of Field (Suited to Mirrorless and SLR cameras) Challenge finished on Thursday, 17 Sep 2015 Choosing the right aperture to achieve a shallow depth of field is a paramount skill in manipulating camera settings for a desired effect. Earlier on in my photographic journey I had not associated aperture to depth of field, but once I realised the relationship it opened up a whole new field of possibilities. I am not going to tell you what aperture you should be using, instead I want you to research if you dont already know. Do a search on aperture and depth of field and you should find the answers. So what I am after is a shallow depth of field (a small portion of image in focus while the rest is out of focus). This skill is often used to isolate a subject. You need to take full control of your camera and either use M mode (M stands for Master in my book), or aperture priority...Get out there , research, and then shoot something wonderful! P.S, I will disqualify any images that I feel do not meet the brief. Good luck and good shooting.
Winner: Mountainbiking in Zermatt
Outdoor Exercise Challenge finished on Wednesday, 16 Sep 2015 Submit your best photo of people exercising in the outdoors. Any type of exercise is OK, just make sure it is outdoors and the people are obviously and actively exercising. Please give your photo a title, and identify the location!
Macro - Something Frosted or Frozen Challenge finished on Wednesday, 16 Sep 2015 Submit a macro photo of an object that is very cold and has frost on it or the subject is frozen or has frozen ice attached to it. I have strove, tried very hard, to offer challenges that are fresh, new, and unique to my past challenges. It has become more and more difficult to deliver new and fresh challenges that are not repeats of my past challenges, but I consider it a challenge to myself to offer new and fresh challenges to the community that aren't the simple repeats that other challenges often deliver. Cheers! And enjoy this challenge!

Colors of the Animal Kingdom Challenge finished on Tuesday, 15 Sep 2015 The idea of this challenge is to show the amazing colors of animals in their natural habitat. Whether it's the tiniest insect to the largest animals show off the colors of the natural world. There will be no zoo animals nor pets in this challenge. All animals must be in the wild and in their home, no humans in the photos, hands or feet. The main idea is to show how beautiful coat and skin colors are. Along with eyes, ears, etc. Animal must be identifiable in the photo so make sure the photo is far enough away that at least the whole face is visible.
Winner: 12th Octuber Madrid
-Military Parade- (in Full Colours Only) Challenge finished on Monday, 14 Sep 2015 Take a dayshot of one or more than one human adult(s) who is clearly in a military parade of a ruling government. (As opposed to some cheap rallies by some nutcase rebellious movements). Face must be evident and it must not appear like a cheap sneaky snapshot. Photo can be taken with any camera. Sunset/sunrise shots are acceptable provided they are not those silhouette type of shots.
Winner: Poppy Explosion
Splendid Spring (With Border and Title suiting a Postcard) Challenge finished on Monday, 14 Sep 2015 This is the first season challenge. For this week spring should be in full swing down under where I am. The leaves on the willows have burst forth, the lambs are frolicking in the sunshine and the Daffodils and Tulips are all out. So come hither and enthrall us with your spring serenade. The image must scream spring. The subject should be something to do with spring. Remember the rules, for I will disqualify any that don't fill the brief.
