Excellent and original challenge idea.
Photography at it's best.
JamesD28: Why make the capture date so restricted? There is potential for some incredible entries in this challenge, but such restriction could really limit how well the challenge is received...... if there is any particular reason please could you let us know.
That would be a different kind of fun. The fun here is to go take a picture and compete with others doing the same. This is more in the spirit of a true challenge.
Joseph Mama: Wow I should totally take a picture of some Old Guy and do a bleach bypass look. Then I can be a winnar!!
The voters will be the judge of that if you ever actually enter a challenge.
Next time I would prefer to have a longer short list, so the the final result reflects more of the voters choice and less of DPR's staff's choice.
