Winner: Lost door
Recording Memories Challenge finished on Sunday, 19 Apr 2009 We all have a special possession that reminds us of something or someone, or that evokes a particular period of our lives. Choose a person other than yourself, and portray him or her with an object that tells us a story. There are no restrictions about type of camera, but post-production must be kept to a minimum. It is important that the words you use give strength to your work rather than narrow its meaning. Thus, the title should be minimal and only descriptive, just the name of the person--and what the object is, if you wish. But as part of the challenge, I strongly encourage you to use your poetic talents in the description or notes, where you can speak more about the person, the object, and their stories.
Winner: Too many choices?
Failures of Design Challenge finished on Saturday, 18 Apr 2009 Sometimes, despite the best of intentions, man-made creations either don't do what they're supposed to or conflict with other objects and/or their environments in such ways that we can't help but shake our heads. I'm specifically looking for examples of counter-productive human creations here, no poking fun at the natural world itself. Bear in mind that some designs are elegant yet unintuitive, so be careful when pointing the finger.
Winner: House of cards
Architecture... Demolition ! Challenge finished on Thursday, 16 Apr 2009 This challenge is dedicated to demolition of buildings. Show us what happen !
Winner: Bokeh'd against a bed of Creeping Jenny
Buds and Thorns Challenge finished on Thursday, 16 Apr 2009 Post a photograph of colorful buds but take care that thorns also get equal importance.
Winner: In search of nector from heaven
A distant compact Challenge finished on Wednesday, 15 Apr 2009 This challenge is for compact cameras only, and specifically those with a long zoom. We're looking for those long distance shots you could only have captured with a big telephoto, the catch being it's got to be a compact camera's built in big zoom. We're looking for shots with lots of 'X', 20X, 24X, whatever you've got, give it your best.
Winner: Early morning at Capri.
I do like to be beside the seaside Challenge finished on Wednesday, 15 Apr 2009 Ok, sand may not be too good for your lenses but the seashore can be a great place to take photos. This challenge is about day trips to the seaside, so no sunsets, surfers or sea-based sports. And no-one said the weather has to be good.
Vignette Challenge finished on Monday, 13 Apr 2009 Vignetting is often seen by the unimaginative as an optical defect to be avoided at all costs. But it can be a powerful method of drawing attention to your subject, by reducing the visual impact of the surroundings and background. Show us pictures which use vignetting to help make their point.
Winner: Patent Pending at the Blender Theater
Unplugged Challenge finished on Sunday, 12 Apr 2009 Acoustic or the original version, watching live performances is an experience in itself. But photographing it can be tricky as the setup generally includes low or mixed lighting conditions. Other hindrances could be the distance between the performer and photographer, the crowd etc. Submit the best pictures you have captured.
Winner: "Wolf" and Boy
Scary stuff Challenge finished on Friday, 10 Apr 2009 Anything that scares you or gives you the creeps.
This is the Modern World Challenge finished on Wednesday, 08 Apr 2009 Modernist architecture isn't always a popular style, so here's a challenge to show the style at its best. If you're in London you can look for inspiration at the Le Courbusier exhibition - if you're anywhere else, you might be able to find examples of his work, or perhaps a Mies van der Rohe to get you going. Nothing too abstract though - once you can no longer tell it's a building, it's no longer eligible.
