White, Black, Red, Blue: The Police Files Challenge finished on Saturday, 26 Feb 2011 This challenge is for all the photos you have taken of your local, state, or national police forces and their associated gear. From police officers to police cars - your qualifying picture should contain an easily discernible theme about the men and women of law enforcement.
Partial view of city life (READ RULES) Challenge finished on Saturday, 26 Feb 2011 Let's see something that depicts the city lifestyle. HERE'S THE CATCH, you must not show the subject in its entirety. This means if your subject is a person it must be only a part of that person ex. their hands, legs, torso without the head, etc. Full portrait shots are NOT allowed, thus your subject may not be the full head and shoulders of a person, though you could do half or a potion of their head. Other examples may be a car of which you only show the view from the bumper or a street sign which is cut off in the picture. If you do a building front we should get the feeling that a good portion of it is out of frame.

Film Effects: Solarization Challenge finished on Thursday, 24 Feb 2011 Solarization is an old darkroom technique made quite easy by many photo editors.

Start with a good image and use Solarization effects to make it more effective.
