Canon EF 28/1.8 Challenge finished on Friday, 26 Oct 2012 A lens frowned upon due to unsharp corners af f/1.8. Of cause, it is always nice to have sharp corners - you can even blur them in software if you need to. But really, in low light shotting how often do you really need sharp corners wide open? Lets show what the 28/1.8 is capable of in low light situations. Lets show what a bargain this lens really is to all the disbelievers.

A Gentleman's Claw Challenge finished on Thursday, 25 Oct 2012 An old synonym for pocket knife. It's another item (aside from lighters and watches) where designers never seem to get out of ideas! A pocket knife is one handy tool; it is not a weapon. Only more primitive among us tend to think about it the other way around, but then, those are hardly photographers. Anyway: show us one well-made pocket knife, and make the photo as interesting as can be. Think about it as if you were creating a photo for an advertisement. But mention the manufacturer in the comment field, if you think it's deserved. And observe all the rules, so your entry won't be cut out... :)
The 2012 Sunset/Sunrise Challenge (BW with Border, Title and Date) Challenge finished on Thursday, 25 Oct 2012 Submits a photo taken in 2012 that meets the title. Put a Border and Title on the photograph. Please also watermark the capture date (correct to the month)

Beautiful Bokeh (Background) Challenge finished on Wednesday, 24 Oct 2012 Show us your best picture (any subject) with 'Bokeh' background. Bokeh is often most visible around small background highlights, such as specular reflections and light sources, which is why it is often associated with such areas. However, bokeh is not limited to highlights; blur occurs in all out-of-focus regions of the image.
