Winner: Focus on sound
Selective Focus Challenge finished on Friday, 13 Mar 2009 Larger apertures, macro lenses, TS lenses lets you play around with depth of field creatively. You can create stunning images out of nothing by focusing on a particular part of your frame. Shoot from different angles to change the plane of focus and achieve different results using the same subject.
Arty Arm's-Length Self-Portrait Challenge finished on Thursday, 12 Mar 2009 We want to see you take on the newest (and most maligned) photo genre: the arm's-length self-portrait. A shot of you by you minus the trusty tripod is the aim here. Get the camera in hand and get creative with your lighting, setting and composition. Prove to the social-networking crowd once and for all that the arm's-length self-portrait need not be mediocre.
Winner: Oaks by the Road in Pinhole mode
Pointless scene modes Challenge finished on Wednesday, 11 Mar 2009 A challenge for compact camera users only. We've been known to poke gentle fun at the plethora of scene modes which adorn modern compact cameras, here's your chance to prove us wrong. Show us a picture which illustrates the unique advantages of a scene mode, either using it for the purposes for which it was designed, or using it creatively for special effect. Whether it's 'White Dog' or 'Aquarium 2', show use what your camera can do.
Winner: Sunset Dreamland
Silhouette Challenge finished on Tuesday, 10 Mar 2009 The title says it all really. This is a challenge to capture the most arresting silhouette you can.
Winner: The Nose Knows
Faceless portrait Challenge finished on Monday, 09 Mar 2009 You'd think that a portrait, by definition, would have to show the subject's face? That's certainly considered a good starting point by most photographers, but the creative photographer knows that the most interesting results often come from doing exactly the opposite of what's expected, so for this challenge we're asking you to include little, if any, of the subject's face in the frame. The key thing here is that we're still trying to shoot a portrait, so you're still trying to capture something of the character or personality of your subject, just in a slightly less obvious manner.
Winner: Mr. Jones
Filmic Challenge finished on Sunday, 08 Mar 2009 Whether its cinematic or simply harks back to the pre-digital era, we're looking for shots with a 'filmic' quality. Post processing is allowed (but no text, no borders please)
Winner: Water Lilly
Stare Challenge finished on Saturday, 07 Mar 2009 It's all there in the one word: STARE. Whether it's the uniquely engaging quality of a portrait subject staring directly into the camera or an animal transfixed by its prey, show us your interpretation of the theme...
A splash of color Challenge finished on Friday, 06 Mar 2009 We're looking for shots where a single splash of color dominates the frame. You can use selective desaturation in post processing but that's the only 'shopping' allowed.
Winner: Snohomish Valley Lights
The perfect storm Challenge finished on Thursday, 05 Mar 2009 We're looking for an image which epitomizes mother nature at her wildest and potential most destructive.
Winner: The Golden Hour
Bokeh Challenge finished on Wednesday, 04 Mar 2009 Keep it simple, use bokeh creatively or just knock out the background, whichever you prefer. Extra adoration for exotic lenses. Bokeh must be natural, as in produced by the lens, not in post processing (we'll be looking closely at the aperture used).
