Re: Photo Challenges - Do they help you improve?

I think that they can help you improve...I would generally ignore the voting because sometimes it is hard to figure out how the winner was the best photo for the assigned subject matter (I almost always like mine better...hahahaha)...but as you say, you don't win anything so who cares....what is good about it is the same thing that you see on many sites that talk about improving and that is you have a project or assignment to complete. So if you photo efforts are getting kind of stale or boring, the challenge gives you something specific to work on and maybe give you a lift in doing something new or different that you haven't tried before.

The challenge might give you new ideas and you can submit your best effort in that regard...so, insofar as that part of the challenge, it can definitely help keep you fresh or change your typical photo outing. I think that helps generally and possibly can improve technique, concentration, etc.
