It's been ages since I posted here. Hope everyone is doing well! I always liked the challenges section so thought I'd come by, say hi and post an image or two. Some cracking shots already in this thread!

Wow there are some very nice images in here, great job everyone.

Thought I'd just throw this first attempt at HDR in at the last minute since it's the only night shot I have. I'm in awe of the images on this thread including the ones that started it. Beautiful stuff and inspirational for those of us who are just getting into this area! Thanks so much to everyone who posted here.

Congrats Patrish, well deserved and some stunning images from everyone else.

CJ, if that's your first HDR shot it's a really good one. I look forward to seeing your next one!

This is like being a kid in an eye-candy store with a nickel and trying to decide what to buy. (And 55 years ago, when I was in 3rd grade, walking into the candy store with a nickel commanded respect!)

Frankly, I think that they're all winners in one way or another. But my two very favorites, from different perspectives, are Broadway at the Beach and Syco's lightning shot. This is just a personal thing, though.

Seeing all these images has been among the most amazing experience I've had since participating in digital photography forums for the past few months: Incredible inspiration motivation. Thanks!!!!

How much did you have to pay G, Patrish? Kidding, congrats.

So many fun images to look at here. It's been a pleasure to view, thanks G. (and see the mess you got yourself into, having to pick a winner???) :)

Thanks, everyone, so very much. I don't do a lot of evening or night photography, so maybe this will inspire me to try it more often.

What a difficult choice for Geo. There are so many excellent images here I had no idea I would win. Thanks again!

That is very true, Syco. We see a man in the moon, and Tibetean Buddists see a rabbit. Not sure about the Jananese.

This does relate to the discussion on regarding what images the mind may see in twisted wood and how that comes about and what it may mean for what we see in "conventional reality." And, of course, what we "see" most certainly is germane to photography.

Some excellent images there guys, well done.
And congrats to the winner, well done Patrish.

I can't believe I missed this whole thread, my favourite time for shooting, that's what happens when your mind is somewhere else.

Again, well done to all.

This is an amazing image, MCTuomey, and welcome to this forum as I, myself, am new and must apologize if you have posted before.

This challenge is over. They all last for about a week or seven days, whichever comes first in New Orleans.

If you go to the main menu on the forum, you will be able to see all the various forum categories, or whatever they call them, and if you look you will find the Challenge.

Go there. Take a picure this week; Something new. Then post it. I hope you win; I love New Orleans!!! I love Canada too!!!

You did as far as I'm concerned :D Absolutely!

And just so you know, I myself happened upon this Challenge thread soon after joining the forum, and I barely snuck under the wire on this particular one.

So, again, when you first sign on, scroll down past the main bars of
WELCOME
PHOTOGRAPH CRITIQUES AND DISCUSSIONS
DISCUSSIONS AND POST PROCESSING
then PLAYGROUNJD
then within PLAYGROUND look for Photography Challenges, and click on that.

Then click on Challenge #100.

Then post something you shot recently. You're in! Go for it.
