Magazine editorial: What we can't see Challenge finished on Wednesday, 05 Jun 2013 Advances in technology have enabled more people to take more photos than ever before. Photographers are looking beyond the everyday photos and creating images that require special lenses (e.g., shift/tilt) and/or processing techniques (e.g., HDR). The editors of this magazine want to explore this new world with a collection of images that are beyond human perception. They want images that can not be taken with a regular camera by a regular person. They want time lapse, long exposure, infra-red, super macro, and other out-of-the-ordinary photos to illustrate this article. Provide some OUTSTANDING photographs.
