Crowds (read the rules) Challenge finished on Saturday, 26 Mar 2011 Taking a break from the city theme of the series (though the city is a great place for this kind of material). This week we're sharing pictures of crowds. This could be a crowd at the crosswalk or a crowd at a sporting event or anything you want but there must be at minimum of 9 people in the picture OR if that's not the case then the people should fill the frame completely and convey a sense of being cramped...if they don't do this the you'll be DQed.

Filter Effects: Polarizer Challenge finished on Thursday, 24 Mar 2011 Long before digital editors, photographers used filters to create special effects during capture. While not really a special effect, a polizer can be used to intensify blue skys, increase color saturation and eliminate reflections. For this challenge, enter images in which the use of a polarizer gives the image a "Wow" factor that would not occur without using polarizer. PLEASE: ENTER SHOTS WHICH WERE TAKEN WITH A POLARIZING FILER ON THE LENS. DO NOT CREATE THE EFFECT IN PP

-Sunset over the Metropolis- (in Sepia Only) Challenge finished on Thursday, 24 Mar 2011 Be creative - use shadows, reflections, silhouttes... Take time to think about the composition, subjects, main subjects, props. I want to see modern skyscrapers. (make sure they are prominent). If it's not to theme or if it doesn't look good, don't submit it. Otherwise I might DQ it.
