Graduated filters (PYSICAL, not in post processing) Challenge finished on Monday, 16 Jul 2012 The picture has to be shot with a PHYSICAL graduated filter, so not a gradient added in PP Personally I tried it for the first time last week (and took the sample entry ;) ) and was completely blown away by the results. Immediately I bought a set for myself and it's fantastic. People seem to be under the impression that you could do this in post-processing but to keep the real colors of the sky this works a million times better. (And no, I don't have any stocks in the graduated filter market)
Green Challenge finished on Monday, 16 Jul 2012 The word green is closely related to the Old English verb growan, "to grow". But it has much further reaching connotations than plantlife. Animals such as frogs, lizards, and other reptiles and amphibians, fish, insects, and birds. Several minerals have a green color, including emerald. Culturally, green has broad and sometimes contradictory meanings. In some cultures, green symbolizes hope and growth, while in others, it is associated with death, sickness, envy, or the devil, or both, depending on the context. The aim is produce a photo, characterising an interpretation of the colour Green.
