It's Just A Flowering Weed Challenge finished on Saturday, 04 Aug 2012 Flowering weeds can be as beautiful as those plants we cultivate, even though we often think of them as pests. Show us the beauty in these flowers, in their natural world. I know that a weed in one country may be a treasure somewhere else, that's okay, it is what YOU consider to be a weed where you live. Wildflowers in the countryside will be in a separate challenge later; this challenge is just about flowering weeds. Also, I'm NOT referring to the smoking variety of weed. That can be someone else's challenge..... Insects or other small creatures may be present in your entry but must not dominate the picture. SIZE DOES MATTER: See below!

Stacked Photography Challenge finished on Thursday, 02 Aug 2012 It's usually used in photographing stars, especially to register their "movement" and create startrails. But the process is also used in daylight photography, to achieve effects similar to long exposure. Show your best stacked images done in the daylight - and check the rules before you enter your work. Ignoring the rules will cause disqualification.
Winner: box shades
Cardboard Box/Boxes (please read the rules) Challenge finished on Thursday, 02 Aug 2012 Let's see if we can make boxes interesting. It can be a single box, stacked boxes, crumpled boxes, colored boxes, or plain boxes but it must be thick paper or cardboard. NOT ALLOWED: Plastic boxes, wooden boxes, glass boxes, metal boxes...well, you understand--ONLY stiff paper and cardboard boxes. Also, the focus/subject of the photo must be the box/boxes. If my eyes find other parts of the photo more interesting, then I will disqualify it. For example, don't put a beautiful female beside a box, or photograph a box in front of the Taj Mahal. Ideally, the winning entry will not depend on how interesting the writing or illustration is on the box(es) but how well the photograph makes the boxes interesting in the shot.
Winner: The Farm
