Nature's Graffiti Challenge finished on Saturday, 24 Oct 2015 Before humans left their marks on walls and buildings, nature was already demonstrating graffiti in interesting places. Show us some examples of this. It may be carvings by beetles under tree bark, snail trails, leaves with wandering paths beneath their surfaces caused by tiny insects, tidal marks in the beach sand... Please, no graffiti or markings made by humans or domestic pets, and minimal evidence of man or man-made structures. Macro and close-ups welcome. Size of entry: 1,600 pixels on the longer side.
PETS: Show some Expression Challenge finished on Friday, 23 Oct 2015 This challenge is designed for you to show off your pets uplifting expressions, happy, excited, curious, etc. (no sad, scared, or depressed).

Please provide a brief description of what your pet was doing when you took the photo, empty entries will be disqualified. For judging of this challenge it will be based on the photo that caught the perfect moment of an uplifting expression on their pet's face.

ARW2 Artifacts Attack! Challenge finished on Thursday, 22 Oct 2015 This is a challenge for images captured using the infamous lossy-compressed Sony ARW2 raw format that are great photos, BUT show horrible compression artifacts. I've built a free tool called KARWY that can fix a lot of that, but the controversial fact is that the artifacts are quite rarely visible... show us some great photos that have annoyingly visible ARW2 compression artifacts.
Winner: Trona Blues-5111
Shooting in the "Blue Hour" Challenge finished on Thursday, 22 Oct 2015 Moving on from last weeks challenge we will look at the Blue Hour in general. The 'Blue Hour' is a mostly short period of time direct before sunrise and after sunset. The name 'Blue Hour' comes from the blue colored sky. This characteristic blue is based on the fact that there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness as the sun is below the horizon. Research Blue Hour photography to find out more. Must be shot after sunset and before night. Or after night and before sunrise...As this is subjective I will disqualify anything that I feel does not fill the brief.
Winner: Lincoln - 21 November 2010 - 16

Rodents ID Challenge finished on Tuesday, 20 Oct 2015 To go more specifically into the Mammalia class this challenge will be focused on Rodents from around the world. Each person will be allowed to submit one photo of a rodent and must provide a general location of where the photo was taken. This will help ID the specific animal, if you know common and or scientific name feel free to provide it. This challenge is for rodents ONLY if you have any questions about if the animal you've photographed is a rodent please feel free to message me. The simple and plain definition of a rodent is: mammals of the order Rodentia, which are characterized by a single pair of unremittingly growing incisors in each of the upper and lower jaws The idea for judging this challenge is to see who has the best photo for being able to ID this specific individual.
