I want to go back there!! Challenge finished on Monday, 16 Nov 2009 This is for people who travel and leave a piece of themselves everywhere they go. Let's post photos of places we've been to and that we miss so much. Places where we want to go back. It would be great if we could post photos linked to particular emotional feelings that help us to understand why that place is so attractive to you. Photos are stories, so tell us something about the place and about your experience there. Let us empathize with you, give us a little bit of your feelings. I wish everyone to go back to the place you are longing for. -paradiso

More of the Extraordinay Ordinary - After the irony of Elliott Erwitt Challenge finished on Sunday, 15 Nov 2009 Look at the work of the great Magnum photographer, Elliot Erwitt for his wonderful way of catching a quietly poignant, humerous or ironic moment. I don't mean his excellent photojournalism, but his personal work that shows his great sense of the comedy of life. Be rigorous, the subject and composition should be really arresting and amusing. Erwitt's work never looks planned but seems effortless and much of it is the lucky moment of being in the right place at the right time with the eye and skill of a great photographer. Work that does not fit into this subjective category may be disqualified. Please look at the Elliott Erwin websit for more insight into this great photographer: www.elliotterwitt.com I hope to see work that is better than my own paltry samples.
Winner: Extincion es por siempre
Wild Creatures: Amphibians Challenge finished on Saturday, 14 Nov 2009 :: An Insight into the Natural World III :: The challenge here is to post your best picture of an Amphibian, either tailless, e.g.: Frog or Toad - or tailed, e.g.: Newt, Salamander and Mudpuppy - or legless, e.g.: Caecilian (very unusual and hard-to-find creatures. More information here: http://www.sandiegozoo.org/animalbytes/t-caecilian.html). The Amphibian should be the main subject but it can be pictured in its natural environment - interacting with other animals, etc. If possible, please include information about where the photograph was taken and the name of the animal, if you know.

Your worst picture ever Challenge finished on Saturday, 14 Nov 2009 We've seen so many really nice pictures posted in Challenges section in the past, but everyone has to go through the growth path to get there, has to take time to get there. Why not recall our memory and see how successful you are today. So if you still have your first shot or worst shot in your hard driver, share it with us, we'll learn from you.
Composition: Fill the Frame! Challenge finished on Saturday, 14 Nov 2009 Beginning photographers have a tendency to keep well back from their subject. The acronym SCUFI (Shoot Close-Up For Impact) was coined to remind novices to get in close and fill the frame. Using a STANDARD FOCAL LENGTH lens (between 35mm and 65mm equivalent), demonstrate your ability to get in and fill the frame with your subject. Be careful not to crowd the frame, just get in close to prove you're not afraid of the subject. (Note Additional rules.)
Winner: come baby..
Disconnected Challenge finished on Thursday, 12 Nov 2009 This theme can be interpreted in many ways -- a telephone with the wire cut off, two people turning their backs on each other, or a homeless person roaming the streets. Be creative.
Winner: Mt. Hood in Spring
Old Manual Focus Prime Lens Challenge finished on Thursday, 12 Nov 2009 Over the last 30 years, photographers have become used to a variety of convenience features such as wide-open auto exposure, auto focus, and zoom lenses. Unfortunately, these features cost us depth-of-focus preview, precision and robustness of physical construction, and the superior IQ of prime lenses. This challenge is for photos created combining the best of both worlds: modern digital image capture and processing with an old, high-quality, manual-focus, prime lens.
