  Current challenge: #174 Night Photography
Entries MUST be taken at night, between your sunset and sunrise, and NOT converted to a night scene with post processing. Night photography is far more varied than most people imagine. See http://photo.net/travel/night-photography-tips/ When viewing the entries, members are reminded that night is very short and not very dark for some of our members at this time of year. We hope that this will not bias your judgement. Photo can be taken indoors or out. Each entry should give the sensation to the viewer that it was taken at night. It will be up to the members to judge whether a photo has given that impression.

Note: This challenge, we are experimenting with delaying the displaying of the post-processing info until after the voting is over. So, be sure to disclose all the techniques and processes you used that may help members understand how you crafted your photo. Describe any special in-camera settings you used.
In the extra info section, along with the usual info, let us know if your image consists of multiple exposures.

  Current challenge: #175 Leading Lines
For this Challenge, let's focus our efforts on a well-established compositional technique - using linear elements to direct the viewer's eye in the image. The lines might be obvious or subtle; straight, curved or irregular; natural or man-made. They might point to the main subject, or they could guide the viewer on a path through the scene. You'll find a wide variety of examples at Internet resources like those below, or search "Leading Lines" for a great many more:

Now let's go line up our own examples to show how this technique can make our shots more intriguing! (The winner of the Open Category will get to choose a subsequent theme.)

  Past challenge: Mini#33 Best of 2016, So Far
Let's take a lighter approach and review and exhibit our best photos of the year, so far. Submit your best photo taken in the first 6 months of 2016. Remember, you have time to take something new if your 2016 photo collection is suffering. For this mini challenge, the following changes to the normal rules apply:
  1. Entries: photos must be taken between January 1 and June 30, 2016, inclusive.
  2. Anonymity: normally photos shouldn't be posted elsewhere, but that's fine this time.
  3. You may try resubmitting an entry if you don't think it received proper recognition the first time around.
All other rules are as normal. Though the entry period runs into July, no July photos will be accepted! Photos must have been taken from January through June. Good luck.
