Challenge has finished
Vignetting is often seen by the unimaginative as an optical defect to be avoided at all costs. But it can be a powerful method of drawing attention to your subject, by reducing the visual impact of the surroundings and background. Show us pictures which use vignetting to help make their point.

Taken: Sunday, 29th March, 2009
Focal length: 24 mm
Shutter speed: 1/200 sec
Aperture: F11
ISO: 200
Notes: Shot at f/11 due to the bright fixed output of the mini flash beside the laptop. On camera flash at 1/4 power on manual mode enough to trigger the mini flash. f/11 rendered cluttered kitchen background in sharp focus. Processed in b/w in lightroom then vignetted and touched up in Photoshop to take out distractions.
