Winner: Water collision kaleidoscope
This is something I just got started with, and I'm enjoying it quite a bit. So I thought I would run a challenge based on it. Take a photo of a drop or drops of liquid colliding. Be it two or more drops colliding with each other, or one just hitting the floor etc. There must, however, be a collision. Remember it's just for fun. If you have any issues please send me a polite...

In intentional camera movement (ICM), a camera is moved during the exposure for a creative or artistic effect. This causes the image points to move across the recording medium, producing an apparent streaking in the resulting image

The Harris shutter is a strip device with three colour filters, invented by Robert S. "Bob" Harris of Kodak. The effect is produced by re-exposing the same frame of film through red, green and blue filters, while keeping the camera steady. This will generate a rainbow of colour around any object that moves within the frame. With digital photography, the process has become a lot simpler – the...

Winner: The Wave
This is another challange based on an old bit of photography course work I did for my A-Level. Photo must be of a pattern found in nature. This can be in the form of something natural forming a natural pattern or a natural pattern on something. The pattern must be the main focus of the photo, but it should not be a simple texture shot. No photos that look like fabric or paint samples...

Winner: Missing pillars
The challange is to create a photo where main subject is noticable by the very lack its missing from the photos. This can be achieved many ways by either not having the subject in the photo at all, or removing the subject in PP. If you take the photoshop route it must not be obvious that something has been removed. Ie no blanks spaces where the object was. Think the heinz ketchup advert with...

Long-exposure photography or time-exposure photography involves using a longer than average duration shutter speed to sharply capture the stationary elements of images while blurring, smearing, or obscuring the moving elements.

More specifically, it is where your subject appears as a plain black shape against a brighter background. It is an artistic photography expression that many photographers like to refine and perfect in their images. This effect can be achieved with any bright light source with the...

Photos taken while in the Open Ocean, Deep water. By definition, there is no bottom in blue-water diving. In fact, any diving where the maxim “if you drop it, it’s gone forever” holds true, even if the bottom is only 50 m (165 ft) deep, could probably be considered “blue water.” The most common applications, however, are in places where the bottom is far deeper than one can see or go while...
