New Mini Challange #434

I am pretty chuffed at winning the last mini challenge, particularly in view of the high standard of the other entries, so now I must host the next one.

This week's mini challenge is "Ancient and Modern"

This could of course relate to buildings, technology, people, fashion, sport, whatever you like.

I like images to be presented well, and I enjoy imagination.

Submissions should show both Ancient and Modern in the same image.

The start is now, and it ends on Sunday 3 August at 8 pm Paris time.

I am never clear whether people are entering or just showing their images, so it would help if entrants only submit images which are entries for the challenge. If you think your picture is good enough, why not enter.


The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going.

You may enter up to three competition images. If you post more than 3, anything following the third will be “for fun”.

The host chooses the winner after the challenge closes (usually after one week). The decision of the judge (the host) is final. The judge is not eligible. The winner then chooses the next topic, runs the challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person.

If you submit a photo, please check in when the winners are posted. The first place winner is expected to host the next challenge. If the first place person cannot host, it moves to the 2nd place, etc.

Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera. Previously submitted photos are acceptable

Please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post if you are submitting an entry and please remember to change the Subject of your post to display your name or picture titles. This way, when someone comments (i.e. replies), it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: Mini Challenge #432.." it would be very boring to scan the list.

Try to put your entries within a 'single' post.

Please give a title to each photo - this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments...also you may wish to comment about when and where you took it.

Feel free to comment on other contestants' images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put an asterisk * next to the title of the image.

For list of previous winners:


Please embed your image in the thread. Also please re-size your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (approx. 800 pixels on the longest side works best.)

As a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos.

Thanking you in advance for your submissions. Have fun!!

To get you started, here is my own take on the theme, showing the contrast in styles of dress, both ancient and modern.

Generation Gap, dress styles both ancient and modern.
