Challenge has finished
Enter photos in which technical concerns such as poor framing, bad exposure, lack of focus, blurring, shifted dyamic range et al are secondary to having just captured a moment or subject. This does include the idea of introducing intentional "flaws" for "artistic" reasons. More importantly, it's about images in which the subject is so compelling viewers should be willing to overlook the flaws.

While taking shots of the little alleyways in Miyagawa-cho, one of Kyoto's hanamachi, the geiko Komomo walked right into my shot. I couldn't complain. I had a photo of a famous geiko. One who actually put out one of my favourite books.
