Winner: Stick Work
Tribute to: Gjon Mili Challenge finished on Sunday, 07 Feb 2010 Gjon Mili was one a Life magazine "photographer emeritus". He used the budding technology of strobe lighting to amazing effect, combining technical and artistic genius. This challenge is all about photos made in one or both of Mili's trademarks. Use of flash to stop action, and/or painting with light. As in the examples below, both techniques can be combined. Gjon often worked with Harold Edgerton to capture multi-strobe sequences, but it was his artistry in capturing "the moment" that stands out. Also consider that part of his artistry was using complex lighting set ups to capture images even quite moments with vibrancy. This is a chance to put all those off camera, TTL enabled flash systems to the test! See the samples below: any of these styles is acceptable, so don't limit yourself to thinking of only one style. Entrants and voters alike should please read the additional rules. Thanks.
Winner: Falling Tour Eiffel
Beautiful Mistakes: Camera Shake Challenge finished on Saturday, 06 Feb 2010 Generally, people feel that the camera should be steady when shooting, thus the proliferation of tripods and image stabilized lenses and bodies. Whether deliberately or accidentally, camera shake can create images that capture an altogether different feeling. Show us an example of an image where an unsteady hand created a better image.

Workin Nine To Five Challenge finished on Saturday, 06 Feb 2010 Lets see a great image to match the title. It doesnt have to be a literal interpretation , be creative if you wish. Your image should show somebody or something doing some sort of work. Remember the title is just as important as your image in this challenge. Viewers / voters must still be able to see a clear link between the title and your image. Good / Great images with no real link to the title should be marked low. Good / Great images with excellent links to the title should be marked higher. Think carefully before posting your entry and the viewer / voter will of course do the same before scoring your picture. Have fun!

Travel series: American Landscape: Close, Middle and Far. Captions required. Challenge finished on Friday, 05 Feb 2010 The United States landscape is as beautiful as any in the world. Landscape photographers have been capturing this scenic beauty for a long time. You don’t have to travel to a National Park to find it, either. In this challenge, we will practice setting up interesting composition. •Show and tell us about your favorite American landscape. Captions are required, so tell us when and where it was taken. •In your composition of the landscape image, it will be more interesting to the viewer if you have something interesting in the forefront of the image (some call it an anchor), then have the middle and background complete the image by guiding the eye across the frame. We all know the rule of thirds, the golden rule etc. Lets take it one more step up and show better thought and planning in our composition.
