Subtlety....Nature Challenge finished on Monday, 11 Aug 2014 Most people are so used to seeing bright, dynamic, significantly processed images in this digital/Photoshop era that they tend to overlook the less punchy photographs that require a little more effort to appreciate. Photos, of late, seem to be judged by whether they reach out, grab you by the lapels, and shake you to get your attention. This challenge is to show us images that are interesting and thoughtful, but don't look like an exploded clown of color/sharpness/HDR.
Winner: English Tea Party 2

One Brown Leaf Challenge finished on Saturday, 09 Aug 2014 In this challenge, show us one natural brown leaf, its beauty, detail, veins and texture of the leaf. Macro and close-up photos welcome. The single brown leaf may be outside, still attached to the tree or plant, but it has probably fallen, and attracted you to it where it lies. Other leaves may be in the background, but there should only be one dominant leaf as the subject.This is the third of a series of challenges I am hosting about leaves, so collect shots of single leaves in orange, red, and multi-coloured, for these later challenges. Purple, pink and blue leaves will also have their own challenges, but I think they will be multiple leaves, as it is probably difficult to find examples of single leaves in these colours. Size of entry: 1,600px MAXIMUM
