If there are humans they should not be significant (less than 0.5% of the photo area.). Put a Border on the photograph and watermark a Title on your entry.

Panning. Challenge finished on Thursday, 03 Sep 2015 Panning is a skill used to show speed and blur. It is often used in sports photography. Put your camera onto M mode or shutter priority, and dial in your shutter speed etc. I have found that 1/30th of a second works better with slower subjects all the way to 1/100th for faster subjects. When panning you need to twist at the hips. Focus on your subject or pre focus where you feel the subject will be, and follow your subject all the way through the pan. Keep it smooth for best results.
Winner: Night at McWay Falls, Big Sur

Natures Monumental Monuments (with Border and Title suiting a postcard) Challenge finished on Monday, 31 Aug 2015 This week the picture postcard is for all the Ansel Adams fans out there. Go forth and photograph Natures Monumental Monuments. Half Dome is a target this week, and if downunder then take a walkabout to Ayers Rock. Go to Monuments National Park for a blast, or even head over to the Fjords in Norway! How bout a giant Oak, or maybe a Californian Redwood. Remember the rules, for I have no qualms for booting off images that do not follow the rules.
