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).
Winner: Full Spectrum
Repetition Challenge finished on Tuesday, 03 Mar 2009 Interpret the word 'repetition' in any way you see fit. But it must not be by post-processing, for example cloning or mirroring, but in a single original shot. And, as usual, no borders.
Winner: Road to eternity...
B&W Film Grain Challenge finished on Monday, 02 Mar 2009 Nothing can beat the effect of film grain on a Black and White image. It coverts the photograph into a timeless piece of art. Film had a distinct advantage over digital when it came to grain, as digital noise didnt give the same effect. But with advanced image-editing softwares and plug-ins its possible to replicate the effect.
