Winner: Ice waterfall
Steady Shot INSIDE stabilisation is a feature on all alpha cameras, helping both reduce camera shake and allow you to use much lower shutter speeds without ruining your images. It also opens up a whole world of creative flexibility. In this challenge we are looking for the best hand held image that shows use of a slow shutter speed.
Winners announced: 12th November, 2009 GMT
Winner: The Conductor
With the first Alpha Only challenge now at the voting stage the second will be on 'portraits'. Don't just submit photos of people though, the best portraits are those that say something about the subject. Be creative.
