Winner: Foggy Night
Streetlight, lonely night (Read Instructions Carefully PLEASE) Challenge finished on Friday, 08 Oct 2010 This one is tied to a song. Ingrid Lucia and the Flying Neutrinos performed "Streetlight" back in 1994. Samples of this jazz / blues song can be found all over the internet (I have permission from the artist to distribute A FULL VERSION of the song, so feel free to write me if you'd like a full copy). When I listen to this song, the lyrics/music provide me with a very clear image in my head to accompany it. YOUR MISSION: familiarize yourself with the song and / or song lyrics, then produce either a color or black and white shot that shows what image the song conveys to you. Mp3 available..need an address THe lyrics are: STREETLIGHT Streetlight, lonely night, there's one too many whiskeys in me, That Streetlight is my only moonlight, no romance to shine on tenderly, and all that broken glass, scattered around my feet, Stars that felt a shatter of my dreams and memories Streetlight, shine on bright, you'll see me home again tonight.
Ultra-Fast Lenses Challenge finished on Thursday, 07 Oct 2010 Very large aperture lenses, those with an f/number of f/1.2 or less, don't just let a lot of light in. They also have vanishingly small depth-of-focus. That makes them hard to focus, but often results in beautifully smooth out-of-focus portions of the scene (i.e., very pleasing bokeh). This challenge is for photos shot using a taking aperture marked as f/1.2 or faster. Note that not all ultra-fast lenses are expensive; used special-purpose lenses as fast as f/0.75 can be adapted for macro photography on most DSLRs and EVILs: http://www.instructables.com/id/Using-Ultra-Fast-Lenses-on-DSLR-Cameras/

Off the map Challenge finished on Thursday, 07 Oct 2010 Post a pic with latitude and longitude of the point where the pic was taken Only criteria -> On maps.google.com, there should be no road/track/trail etc., marked within 5km as the crow flies. Entries without latitude/longitude in description or title will be disqualified. I will draw a 5km radius circle around lat/lon, and if it intersects any path/road/trail, entry will be disqualified. If your country/region is not mapped on google, then make sure that the pic is not within 5kms of a road. I will be checking out satellite imagery too The idea is that you should meet the spirit of the challenge.
