Asleep (Nature) Challenge finished on Saturday, 12 Dec 2015 I hope this challenge won't send you to sleep, but instead give you the opportunity to show us examples of birds, animals, insects, flowers, plants which have gone to sleep, or are dormant. Your entry might be birds or animals resting (with eyes closed), or flowers which close for the night. It might be animals in hibernation, or trees which have lost their leaves in winter. Seeds can lie dormant until the earth warms sufficiently, or the rains come to break the drought. Please, no humans, no cats, dogs or domestic pets. Macro and close-ups welcome. Size of entry: 1,600 pixels on the longer side.
Winner: Purse Snatcher Arrested
The "Photo Journalist" in you. Challenge finished on Saturday, 12 Dec 2015 Go out and get a newsworthy photo, and do a write up in the description. Treat it as if a newspaper editor would want to add it to the next addition. Be serious about it. Don't come up with something like "Uncle Harry Cutting the Grass On an Unusually Hot Day". Find something that is truly newsworthy. Perhaps you came across a car accident, a fire, or spotted a celebrity at an eatery for example. Whatever you think would make the next addition in your local newspaper. But keep one very important thing in mind. Do not put yourself in harms way. You're not getting paid for this.
Winner: Bricks and Mortar
Building Material: Brick Challenge finished on Friday, 11 Dec 2015 A brick is one of the most common building material forms in the world. The characteristics found most commonly are: 1) manufactured - you don't pick them up from the ground or cut them down in the forest. Rather, they are formed from clay or mud (sometimes with other material as a binder) by hand or machine and baked in a oven, dried in the sun, or chemically hardened.This challenge is to present images that illustrate any of the many uses of bricks in construction in an appealing, attractive, and accurate way. It can be a whole building, a detail of their use, or a hod-full of them awaiting placement. Given a nearly 7000 year history and the remarkable variations in materials, how they're made, their colors, and uses, I hope to see a range of submissions that mirror their broad uses around the world. When looking at the images, one must be certain that a "brick" something is the major subject: wall, house, floor, patio, walkway, whatever. Open your eyes to their presence everywhere.
