Beautiful Mistakes: Camera Shake Challenge finished on Saturday, 06 Feb 2010 Generally, people feel that the camera should be steady when shooting, thus the proliferation of tripods and image stabilized lenses and bodies. Whether deliberately or accidentally, camera shake can create images that capture an altogether different feeling. Show us an example of an image where an unsteady hand created a better image.
Winner: Sunrise at Mono Lake, CA
Travel series: American Landscape: Close, Middle and Far. Captions required. Challenge finished on Friday, 05 Feb 2010 The United States landscape is as beautiful as any in the world. Landscape photographers have been capturing this scenic beauty for a long time. You don’t have to travel to a National Park to find it, either. In this challenge, we will practice setting up interesting composition. •Show and tell us about your favorite American landscape. Captions are required, so tell us when and where it was taken. •In your composition of the landscape image, it will be more interesting to the viewer if you have something interesting in the forefront of the image (some call it an anchor), then have the middle and background complete the image by guiding the eye across the frame. We all know the rule of thirds, the golden rule etc. Lets take it one more step up and show better thought and planning in our composition.
Winner: Wedding in Tokyo
