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

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.

Dramatic Light: Impressionist Landscape Challenge finished on Saturday, 10 Oct 2009 The arrival of the camera on the art scene caused some, including poet Baudelaire, to decry the eventual death of painting. One group of artists rebelled by creating a whole new type of art: impressionism. The camera, they realized, could only capture reality, while the artist could record impressions and feelings. Advanced photo editing techniques allow modern photographers to create impressionistic work as well. Start by examining the work of early impressionists. Find a suitable landscape (one of the most popular subjects). Use a mix of techniques to make an impressionistic version, but don't rely on automated filters (go hands-on!). Briefly describe how you created the look. (Note the rules!) NOTE TO VOTERS: You really need to evaluate these images at normal or large size. The thumbnail view does these images no justice.
Sigma-Foveon: Intimate Places Challenge finished on Saturday, 10 Oct 2009 Show us your best 'Intimate Places' photographs taken with a camera that uses a Foveon sensor. The challenge is to engage the viewer in your reasonably tight composition; make them feel emersed in the mood of your picture. Framing is everything! It could be a garden, a pond, a river, wild flowers, mushrooms or an isolated gully in the forest, park, garden or desert -- anywhere that is, or looks, 'intimate'. :: For those who aren’t technically minded about these matters: Most digital cameras use a Bayer sensor, which captures red, green and blue light (RGB) using a Colour Filter Array -- one colour at each photosite. The Foveon sensor captures RGB at each and every photosite. This is a very different way of capturing an image that produces pictures with great colour depth and sharpness.
