Ha ha, I wouldn't know what tastes to pander to. I have no clue what the voters are looking for or why they vote the way that they do...that is why I mentioned that whether you win or not who cares...the only thing good about the challenges is that it gives you a project to work on and you do the best job you can to accomplish that task. If you learn something about doing macros for the challenge that is a good thing, if you learn about HDR for the challenge that is a good thing.

It is much better than just going out on a Saturday with your camera and aimlessly shoot stuff. Going with a purpose or a mission of accomplishing something specific gives you better focus, makes you more aware of your surroundings and I think generally helps you take better photos...
