*** Mini Challenge #438 ~ Outdoor Plants***

*** Mini Challenge #438 ~ Outdoor Plants***

I would like to see pictures taken outside of plants which live outside. This will include flowers, bushes, trees, and even cactus and mushrooms. It could be a single flower or tree, or a garden, or a panorama of a forest. But the subject is clearly a plant or plants

You may use any post processing you like to enhance your pictures. I will be judging the photos on technical aspects, composition, use of light, and impact on the viewer.

If you're familiar with extracting exif-data, let us know camera model, shutter-speeds, f-stops and ISO-numbers: others may be able learn from that!

The challenge begins now, and will end on Monday, Sept 8, 2014, at 8:00 pm Minneapolis time.


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

You may enter up to three competition images.

Please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post only 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 #437"... it would be very boring to scan the list.

I will share some examples in the following post. Please reply to that post with any pictures that you are just sharing 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.

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.

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.


Please embed your image in the thread. 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.
Main rule and general guideline: Have fun!!
