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 cat must be a typical house cat of any breed, but it must appear dignified and noble, not goofy and playful. The cat must also be healthy and attractive, the sort of animal you would want to enter in a cat show.

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.

Classical Portraiture II Challenge finished on Tuesday, 23 Oct 2012 Good portraits in the classical tradition attempt to show people as they are. A classical portrait is minimalist portraiture, since it emphasizes the most recognizable part of a subject, the face. Everything else is less important. Typically, the subjects in these portraits aren't doing anything, they simply *are*. Their poses are relaxed without appearing stiff or awkward. Lighting is very important to give shape to the face, often using Chiaroscuro or Rembrandt lighting. These photographers made at least some famous portraits in the classical manner: Julia Margaret Cameron, Arnold Newman, Irving Penn, Yousuf Karsh, Alfred Stieglitz, Imogene Cunningham, and Philippe Halsman. Find some inspiration in these painters also: John Singer Sargent, Velazquez, Hans Holbein The Younger, Rembrandt, Anthony Van Dyck, Raphael, Joshua Reynolds, and Jan van Eyck.
Winner: The Iron Sheik
