Harmony of Colours in Nature Challenge finished on Saturday, 16 Aug 2014 In this challenge show us examples where colours in nature harmonise together. I know that this is very subjective, but I'd like to see what colours YOU think are harmonious, and are pleasing in YOUR eyes. I'm not just referring to 'complementary colours' of red-green, yellow-violet etc., but I want to see pictures which you find pleasing to view, and perhaps tell us why. Preferences for colour harmony can depend on gender, race, country of origin, climate etc. (Bright colours in the tropics look very out of place in colder countries, and muted pastel shades are 'lost' in places with bright clear sunshine). The subject of your photo should, where possible, be outside in the natural environment. Macro and close-ups welcome. Size, 1,600px maximum on the entry's longer side. Later, I'll host a challenge: 'A Riot of Colour', where you can showcase those colours which are discordant to you, and excessively flamboyant in nature.
Winner: Hyatt Regency Duesseldorf

Mona Lisa - 20th / 21st Century Challenge finished on Friday, 15 Aug 2014 This is a portrait challenge to recreate the famous painting. Imagine yourself with a camera, sitting next to Leonardo da Vinci when he was painting the Mona Lisa. Submit a photograph that resembles as much as possible that famous painting. Elements to consider in the photograph: your subject's look-alikeness to Mona Lisa, her costume, the pose, the background, the lighting, the chair, etc. The best photograph should be the one that when a viewer sees it, will quickly think it is a Mona Lisa interpretation. It is allowed to use your creativity in interpreting / re-interpreting the Mona Lisa, as long as the viewer can quickly think you are attempting to recreate the Mona Lisa. As for creative interpretation: one thought is to recreate a 50's Mona Lisa, a 60's Mona Lisa (hippie!!), 70's, 80's, 90's, etc.

Subtlety....Nature Challenge finished on Monday, 11 Aug 2014 Most people are so used to seeing bright, dynamic, significantly processed images in this digital/Photoshop era that they tend to overlook the less punchy photographs that require a little more effort to appreciate. Photos, of late, seem to be judged by whether they reach out, grab you by the lapels, and shake you to get your attention. This challenge is to show us images that are interesting and thoughtful, but don't look like an exploded clown of color/sharpness/HDR.
