One of the composition technique is to shoot repeating subjects around us. Take out your Point&Shoot camera and look around for any interesting and repeating subjects. I would like to see a Point&Shoot camera entry as much as possible but any camera will do.

Winner: Sunset Run
As the title says, show the beauty of the subject in black. In this challenge all cameras are equal so no disadvantage for a P&S camera. I would like to see a P&S entry as much as possible though but any camera will do. Show your best Silhouette shot!

Winner: Waiting for the Lucky bee
P&S cameras are often limited with aperture control to achieve SDOF. So an alternative way especially in macro subject is to shoot in tele-macro mode. Make your macro subject stand-out and show that blurred or bokeh background.
