I played the silver ball... Challenge finished on Thursday, 21 Oct 2010 Pinball that is. You can enter photos of TWO types. First, photos of pinball machines (or their equivalent in your country). Second, photos that you think would make good artwork for a pinball machine. Remember, you can do as much PP in this series as you want so be creative. NOTE:It's important to realize that the titles of these challenges are song or movie titles/qoutes, and as such may not directly present the theme, so read the description carefully.
Winner: Lower Lewis Falls, WA
Waterfalls Challenge finished on Thursday, 21 Oct 2010 Continuing on with our Rivers theme - we can now concentrate on one of the most dramatic aspects of rivers - waterfalls. Again, to avoid images that show only flowing water, images must include at least part of the river bank or left/right side of the waterfall. However, the top edge of the waterfall is not necessary. Please NO HUMAN ELEMENTS in this Art of Earth series!

Masterclass: Yousuf Karsh Challenge finished on Tuesday, 19 Oct 2010 One of the true masters of portrait photography is Yousuf Karsh. He has photographed about anyone that shaped the 20th century. This challenge is dedicated to him. Go to http://karsh.org/ click on "the work", then "portraits" and enjoy a sample of his work. In this challenge you'll recreate one of these works. In the title of your entry you must state which portrait you picked for your recreation. Images other than those will not be accepted.
7 Deadly Sins: Invidia (b&w) Challenge finished on Tuesday, 19 Oct 2010 The 7 Deadly Sins, used since the advent of Christianity, are the most objectionable vices which beckon humans to sin (more info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_deadly_sins). This challenge explores "invidia" (also known as "envy"), its most basic definition being "the resentment caused by a person having something that the other does not have". There are numerous ways to interpret this with imagery and it is now up to your creativity and perhaps a little research to come up with something that portrays this "deadly sin".
Bridges in monochrome Challenge finished on Monday, 18 Oct 2010 ...not just in black and white but sepia, blue-tone, etc are acceptable. Be creative. Find a different viewpoint on your bridge which can be any kind of bridge, not just highway or road types. Footbridges can also be interesting. Also, bridges under construction or being demolished may also lend themselves to great shots. I have only 2 restrictions: NO SKYWALKS and NO AERIAL shots. the reason? Aerial shots are always "interesting" by definition and I think skywalks are, in general, an affront to my senses. Plus, it's my challenge. (I do realize that some shots will be taken from above but just make sure they are taken on the ground. I can usually tell.)
