Challenge series hosted by James A Rinner. Challenges start on Tuesdays.
I have changed the name from Springtime to Creation. The last title limited the challenges to a single season. I find the world around me so detailed in every season so I opened it up to all seasons! Though some of the challenges may include man-made objects the main subjects are not man made.
Finished (9 challenges)

The reflections on a still lake usually take our breath away. This challenge is for COLOR ONLY.
Winners announced: 1st January, 2013 GMT
Winner: Mt Hood Sunrise 0586
The reflections on a still lake usually take our breath away. We see them done in color all the time and I may add a color version only of this challenge sometime in the future but this challenge is for BLACK and WHITE ONLY.
Winners announced: 13th November, 2012 GMT
We have all seen this style done many times before, usually in wedding photos but let's take it to fall colors; specifically leaves that change color in the fall on a black and white background.
Winners announced: 6th November, 2012 GMT
Winner: Dark trunk
The trunk of the tree can provide quite a contrast between the trunk itself or its surroundings whether it is a man made object or its own foliage!
Winners announced: 25th September, 2012 GMT
Winner: Leaf on Truck
We have all seen it at one time or the other; a single leaf that seems to make a statement or just strikes us as unique. Because that first visual image caused us to shoot the leaf please keep post processing to a minimum. IF YOU ENTER THIS CHALLENGE PLEASE VOTE! If the voters are too few then an entry can win by just a few of the submitter's friends voting for it.
Winners announced: 11th September, 2012 GMT
Winner: Oak moon silhouette
The moon has always intrigued photographers. One of the most famous moonrise photographs in the world is "Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico" by Ansel Adams. This challenge mst include the moon and have that "natural look" of the moon and its interaction with the landscape. This challenge will NOT include buildings but a future one will.
