"Greetings From..." Challenge finished on Thursday, 13 Sep 2012 Let's make some classsic postcards which were so popular before digital communications prevailed. OK, postcards are still being used, but by no means in any significant percentage, and our paper mail nowadays consists mostly of bills... So, use one of the pretty images you have taken, add "Greetings From (insert location name)" or "Welcome To...", and make us want to visit nice places. Do observe the rules, please, so's your postcard won't get lost! :)
Everyday Life - The camera strap Challenge finished on Thursday, 13 Sep 2012 We are all addicted to photography. So I assume all of us own a camera with a camera strap. And this precious little thing - the strap, not the camera - is the theme of this challenge. I'm very curious, how you will make an absorbing picture of such an important camera part. And be aware the strap is an important part of the picture unless you don't want to be disqualified. I bought mine in 1990 in the Magic Kingdom of Disney World in Florida (see sample pic). Since then it go with all my new DSLRs.
Winner: oak tree in rice fields in winter
