Jordan: Non-Portraits Challenge finished on Thursday, 28 Nov 2013 We captured Jordan's people last week. Now, show us everything else. I expect a ton of images from Petra...I would be disappointed if this does not happen. But Jordan has much more. The spectacular Wadi Rum. The unexplored north. Show us the unexpected. And if you show us the expected, wow us with great lighting, or an unusual composition, or something we haven't seen many times before. Let your creativity run wild. As usual for my challenges, Entrants are required to (1) vote for each other entry, (2) read the comments (if any) below this challenge, in case I or other entrants post with Rules questions or clarifications, and (3) follow each of the challenge rules...including voting WITHIN THE FIRST SIX DAYS of the challenge. (Note: I of course would not be surprised by a large number of Petra images. If so, I encourage those entrants to submit ones that are unusual, ones that show Petra in ways we have not seem a million times before.)

!!!BOKEH PHOTOGRAPHY!!! Challenge finished on Monday, 25 Nov 2013 Bokeh is the quality of out-of-focus or “blurry” parts of the image rendered by a camera lens – it is NOT the blur itself or the amount of blur in the foreground or the background of a subject. The blur that you are so used to seeing in photography that separates a subject from the background is the result of shallow “depth of field” and is generally simply called “background blur”. The quality and feel of the background/foreground blur and reflected points of light, however, is what photographers call Bokeh. Read more: http://photographylife.com/what-is-bokeh#ixzz2jeriODKs
