Winner: Bald faced nest
A Place to Call Home Challenge finished on Saturday, 12 Oct 2013 In this challenge, show us the interesting places where insects, spiders or other arthropods make their homes, perhaps to stay protected and dry from the weather, or where they raise their young. Think bee hives, wasps' nests, ants' nests, insects or spiders who have woven leaves together to protect themselves against the world. (Note: The well-known and much-photographed aerial webs of spiders are NOT usually where they live, but are often built daily, and are their means of catching prey, so won't be accepted in this challenge.) Macro and close-up shots welcome, and should be outside in the natural environment. MAXIMUM SIZE 1,600px.
Winner: Canola Fields

Winner: Treur River Potholes
Insidious Dihydrogen Monoxide (aka H2O) Challenge finished on Friday, 11 Oct 2013 Dihydrogen Monoxide (aka DHMO or H2O) is a chemical that is now pervasive in many parts of the Earth. It pours out of car exhaust pipes and power plant smokestacks, and is a major component of the stuff that comes out of waste treatment plants. Large quantities of DHMO have even been found in many bottled drinks. In this challenge photos are invited which show the insidious nature of this chemical -- for example, how it eats through and damages things, how it sloshes about, how it escapes unbidden into the atmosphere. The theme is to capture this chemical's activity or its effects. Some more examples within the theme, to provide a framework: think about H2O (DHMO) as a deleterious chemical compound, and tell a story of its movement (e.g. spraying, wave action, steam, calving iceberg or glacial flow), or a story of its short-term or long-term effects (e.g. causing stains, rust, erosion, carving pores, crevices, and arroyos, sedimentation). Obviously there is some creative leeway.
Textures: Cloth Challenge finished on Friday, 11 Oct 2013 Show examples of the texture of cloth
Winner: Fasten your seat belts!
The Wind Challenge finished on Friday, 11 Oct 2013 Capture the wind in action. Not the results of wind, but the wind in nature doing it's thing. Please title it and perhaps give an explanation of the settings you used so I can continue to learn and hone the hobby and craft.
Winner: Airshow - Red Arrows against the light
Airshow Challenge finished on Friday, 11 Oct 2013 Upload a picture that best describes the spirit of an airshow. Any subject related to an airshow is acceptable: aircraft on the ground or in flight, crews preparing the flight or aboard thei aircraft, mechanics getting the aircraft ready for flight, ground controlers, people attending, etc.
WiFi Remote Capture Challenge finished on Thursday, 10 Oct 2013 A challenge for photos taken remotely using WiFi to trigger the shutter of your camera. Lots of cameras now support this, often with apps like Sony's PlayMemories that let you see a live view and trigger the shutter remotely. This certainly lets your camera go places you can't. Is it helping you make better photos?
Winner: Friendly Fellow

View from a doorway Challenge finished on Thursday, 10 Oct 2013 Use a doorway as a frame for a photograph. It can be a view that looks out or sees in. That is your choice. The doorway itself should not only frame your photo but make it more interesting. Good luck and have fun.
