Wild bird/s Challenge finished on Thursday, 15 Mar 2012 Show off your best picture of a bird (or birds) in its natural environment. Try to be as original as possible - perhaps an unusual crop on the feet, or a wide-angle habitat shot where the bird is only a small (but integral) component of the overall picture. Please also include the species name and approximate location.
Tones or shades of any color(s) as the background to your subject Challenge finished on Thursday, 15 Mar 2012 This challenge requires varied shades of any color or colors as the background. Try to showcase a subject by having a background that does not distract, is not absent, yet adds interest to the picture by it's varied color, tone or shadowing. See examples. You might achieve it with lighting or a shallow depth of field to create the bokeh. Natural outdoor backgrounds may work too. Good luck!

Ad campaign: Nature prevails Challenge finished on Wednesday, 14 Mar 2012 A conservation organization is looking for an image illustrating the tenacious nature of life. They quite like the flower poking through the asphalt cliche image, but are eager to see what other fresh ideas are out there. Show us your best images of nature clinging to life or taking over our artifacts.
Wings Challenge finished on Wednesday, 14 Mar 2012 Another motorized transportation challenge, this one for pilots or others who like planes and flying. This is for any aircraft with a motor. No gliders, please. Any thing else in the shot is fine, as long as there is an aircraft. Blimps and zeppelins are fine, but no hot air craft.

Stone Work (Capture date and size rule) Please read all... Challenge finished on Tuesday, 13 Mar 2012 Something made of stone. It can be a granite counter top or a rock fireplace. Anything made of solid rock or rocks held together with grout or mortar. A cobble stone road is OK, brick is not as brick is man made and not stone. The photo needs to be taken after the challenge is announced. The reason for this is to give you the opportunity to spend a little time planning and capturing an interesting photo. It's got to be worth an hour of your time to think and act creatively rather then watch TV. Your family could have fun helping you. This is not a snapshot challenge, it's a creative challenge. I'd rather have 7 quality photos then a challenge full of file photos. Additional rules apply, please read carefully.
