Winner: Softly Pink
Counter display: Flowers Challenge finished on Wednesday, 23 Feb 2011 The client has a line of floral scented oils and needs a counter display to attract customers from within a department store. The image needs to be bold enough to catch the eye of those passing by, but not so overwhelming as to detract from the products. The image does not have to be sharp; in fact, the client would prefer something very soft and romantic, but feels a super close-up might work as well.
Winner: No sweat...

"Shoppin ain't my thing!!!" Challenge finished on Tuesday, 22 Feb 2011 Though the male of the species is widely acknowledged as the stronger half of the species, it seems they have a hard time adapting to the circumstances in the harsh outlet environment. There the female of the species really thrive, where as the males look to have lost their spirit... abandoned all hope... lost the will to live. They just weren't made to go hunting in the midst of a mega-sale for high heeled shoes, bra's, ... whatever... Capture these lost souls.

Winner: Bad Boy O'Kane
Classical Portraiture Challenge finished on Tuesday, 22 Feb 2011 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: Lytham Green
