Jim Block Photo
puzzle Challenge finished on Thursday, 15 Oct 2009 Please propose the photo for The Most Difficult Puzzle. 'The most difficult' is crucial but remember that the photo must be interesting as well (i.e. puzzle with a single tiled roof would be hard to put together but extremally boring so I would prefere an aerial view of whole town/city with hundred tiled roofs). Please do not submit photos for regular puzzle (sunset, sunrise, horse, dog, cat, flower, castle, girl, dolphin, car or any other corny or fabulous stuff). Do not submit photos with plain surfaces (i.e. blue sky or just single color) or grainy patterns (i.e. sand or starry sky). Be reasonable and keep the balance between 'hard' and 'entertaining'. Please read ALL additional and post-processing rules.

2 out of 3 - Bullet with butterfly wings Challenge finished on Monday, 12 Oct 2009 Bullet with butterfly wings - Smashing Pumpkins - Despite all my rage I'm still just a rat in a cage... The photo must contain at least 2 out of the following 3 elements: Smashing (adj.), Wing and Rage. This is a tribute to another fundamental band and a hymn of the nineties. Perhaps it is not a coincidence that this song's video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DowTH201wI ) is a clear homage to one of the most fundamental photo reports of the century: the Workers of Serra Pelada by Sebastião Salgado - a goldrush almost on the turn of the 21st century: http://www.girafamania.com.br/montagem/fotografo-sebastiao-salgado.html

These old shoes... Challenge finished on Monday, 12 Oct 2009 You have walked miles in them, been through happy moments and sad ones, they are old, cracked and scrapped...but they fit you like a glove and give you comfort.
One Day at a Time Challenge finished on Sunday, 11 Oct 2009 We live life one day at a time. Daily events can sometimes become so routine we don't think much about them. This challenge is about finding the unique or extraordinary in your daily routine or activities. Keep in mind that what may be boring or ordinary to you may be fascinating to someone else. So, try to create a unique image of something you or someone you know does every day, whether it be at work, home, at play. Capture interesting or surprising aspects of the activity that tell a story. The story may be about the activity itself, the person doing it, the location, or all three. Include a description to help tell the story, but try to make the image effective enough that it still has impact. The image should invite viewers to read the caption, not depend on the caption entirely to work. Be sure to thoroughly read the additional rules! NOTE TO VOTERS: Please take the time, as much as possible, to examine the images beyond your first impression. Thanks.
