  Current challenge: #181 Framing (Revisited Again)
We had fun with this theme way back in 2005, and 2011, so we thought we'd give it another go. If we increase our awareness, we will find suitable frames all around us. Things, such as trees, archways, holes, rails or fence posts, etc, can help lead the viewer's eye. By placing these objects around the edge of the composition it helps to isolate the main subject from the outside world. The result is a more focused composition which draws the eye to the main point of interest. The Open Category winner chooses a subsequent challenge theme. (Created by NEAT)

  Past challenge: Mini#35 Best of 2016
Check your digital photo collection and show us your best photo taken in 2016. For this mini challenge the following changes to the normal rules apply. Photos must be taken between January 1 and December 31, 2016 inclusive. Though we prefer photos that have not been entered in a previous challenge, recycled entries will be accepted if you REALLY believe it is your best of the year. Normally, photos shouldn't be posted elsewhere, but that's fine for this challenge. All other rules are as usual. If you don't have anything great to submit, you have until the end of the year to shoot something new! Entries shot in 2017 will not be accepted. Get your entries ready soon. Time waits for no one, so please note the shorter than usual entry period! Post-processing info will be hidden during voting.
