Ok, to start the new year lets have something nice and easy with plenty of scope that everyone can get involved in.

This challenge is to create an image that best represents where you currently reside OR the place you call HOME.

Unfortunately I don't have my archives available to me at the moment, so I've had to rely on other's images to demonstrate the type of photos that can be entered into this challenge. Here's how I might represent my home county of Yorkshire:

A landscape synonymous with your area:

Image
Reach Up For The Sunrise by Canonshot Mole, on Flickr

Image
Yorkshire Helicopter flight by Paul in Leeds (1/3 Million Views! Thanks!), on Flickr

Perhaps the inhabitants of your home town have a particular look that is easily recognised:

Image
Farmer Giles by John_Scone, on Flickr

Image

Image

Maybe your county/state is renowned for their sporting prowess:

Image

Image

Or maybe particular objects or local delicacies may bring back thoughts of home..

Image
Yorkshire lunch by Phil Jackman, on Flickr

Image
Tetley's Bitter - Hull, UK by Neil Pulling, on Flickr

However you choose to do it, please represent the place you call home as best you can in a single image. Multiple entries will be accepted (lets say a maximum of 3), and all will be considered when I come to choose a favourite.

Bonus points can be obtained for images produced especially for this challenge (please state where this is the case), although archive photos are allowed (try and keep it to 2011).

Entries are accepted through to Sunday 15th January (00:00 GMT) and I'll give my feedback and announce the winner later that day.

Hope that makes sense, but feel free to post here if you have any questions or concerns. Please join me in thanking Pete (Teaco) for the inspiration behind this first challenge of 2012!

Good luck everyone and enjoy!

okay here's my first one. This is our 'new' home. We bought it last september and spent from oct-May renovating it while trying to sell our house. This house represents years of work and planning to get our 'dream' property- 19 acres of fields and woods. the house itself is about 90 years old. When I went to look at this house for the first time I really liked it although the pictures in the real estate ad didn't 'thrill' me- I was just looking to eliminate it. But it pulled me in. the agent then opened the front door and I saw this huge oak tree (you can see it in the picture). Now here's the weird part- I've had many dreams about a house that would be my 'home' and the house was always different. But what was the same was this huge oak tree in the front yard. When I saw the tree I knew it was the one. Of course I'm not completely flakey- we looked at it 3 more times and had it inspected top-bottom. I took this shot 2 days before Christmas during a snow fall. I love this shot- more for emotion then real photographic brilliance. To me it looks like a warm haven on a cold and snowy day. And the snow shows off the lines of that beautiful oak tree!

#1. Here's the one I took today for the contest. I was trying to show that Myrtle Beach has a lot of modern high rises, but it's
still a family-friendly beach at heart, represented by the Family Kingdom Park logo and a sliver of the small Farris wheel.

And because we get to post 3 images:
#2. is because, well, it's the main reason our tourists vacation here
#3. it's me...in our neighborhood on New Years Day! (Wally took it with the S95 Canon point & shoot.)

Here's my #2- taken for the challenge:

I could not live without a dog- having them accompanying me on my walk or curled up on the rug asleep makes it home for me.

Great idea for the Challenge Timmy, very interesting for sure. Super examples even if they're not your photos lol.
Phil, love that foggy tree and Bambi what a cute house you have! I agree about doggies, couldn't be without mine
either and that's such an awesome shot! Scott that flower shot is my fave of yours!
Patrish, I always enjoy seeing photos from Myrtle Beach, give Wally a pat for that one with you and the seagulls, love it!

here's my last one. Today I headed out to the beach because I wanted to show you guys what a beautiful place Nova Scotia really is. This beach is called Green Bay and is about a 12 minute drive from my house.

This shot represents the old and the new of my hometown. In the foreground, we have the Ottawa Convention Centre which just opened in April'11, and in the background is the Peace Tower and the East Block of the Parliament Buildings, Canada's house of government. Also seen is the end of Rideau Canal, the longest skating rink in the world, and a World Heritage Site.

If that's not enough to represent my city, the temperature was -20C (-4F) (not counting the windchill) this afternoon when I took this shot! ;)

Just in case he accepts them past the deadline. :lol:

Not extremely happy with this. I took it today and noticed I had a ton of dust on the sensor or my lens. Plus, the lighting was harsh and there were no clouds in the sky like I had hoped there would be.

This was taken last summer on my way home from work.

This is the statue of Thomas Edison down by our boardwalk. Taken last fall.

First of all thanks to everyone who participated. Quite a lot of entries for this one, so bear with me...

Phil:

1) The image itself is very interesting. I particularly like the changes in plant life and the fact it fills the background. That really is an extensive path if it stretches 20 miles and must be an important feature of you home area. I'm not sure I'd be able to place where in the world this was though by this image alone.

2) Another great image. Again it suffers in this particular challenge as it would be difficult to place. The fact it is a golf course could mean that golf is particularly popular in your area, and therefore would be a good choice, but I wouldn't have known it is a golf course unless you had specified so I'm not sure that is what you were going for. Furthermore, golf courses are usually extensively landscaped and don't necessarily reflect the surrounding area. Perhaps are more natural landscape would have helped me get a feel of where you live.

Bambi:

1) Bambi you have a very beautiful and photogenic home. That tree is indeed very impressive. Again, I wouldn't be able to tell exactly where this is from the image alone, however you have managed to capture the climate and environment well alongside a literal take on the challenge. I feel this image represents the cold and isolation I imagine you can find in Nova Scotia, and as such suits this challenge well. This could be a contender!

Patrish

1) Yes! I was hoping for some Myrtle Beach shots. I've added it to my list of places I have to visit. You, of course, get extra credit for shooting specifically for this challenge, and this image reflects a great concept and execution. The composition doesn't do much for me however. I think you could have been a bit more inventive in positioning the sign in front of the buildings.

2) There it is! The beach itself, and surely a symbol of your home town if ever there was one. I particularly like the couple in the foreground! Compositional I can't fault this. The horizon is nice and straight, on one of the thirds and the shoreline draws you into the image right to the tiny buildings curving round in the background. All very nice.

3) I think this is my favourite of your entries. It represents the laid back but fun loving life style I imagine many of the inhabitants of Myrtle Beach enjoy. It also shows another side to the beach I hadn't been aware of previously with a beautiful bridge spanning the river/estuary(?). My only nit with this one is that you didn't take it! It could be Wally might win this contest without even entering (something unheard of in the history of photo challenges)!

Scott

1) Brilliant flowers, you must have a beautiful garden and someone must be a keen gardener to keep them looking so nice. Although it is a great picture of your immediate home environment, I would probably have preferred to see a bit more...

2) That's more like it. That really is a stunning beach you live near. Those rock formations are amazing, and I would not have known you could find these type of things in Vancouver. If I had to guess, I would guess somewhere in Thailand, had it not been for the dog walkers.

3) Saving the best for last, I can see why this must be a must on the Tourist trail. Simply stunning scenery and you captured it perfectly. I particularly like the ice on the rock and around the pool in this.

Bambi

2) This is just brilliant! That expression is priceless. How does it relate to this challenge? It certainly shows the cold climate of where you live. Furthermore, despite the cold, that is not a miserable dog. It may be slightly bemused, but it also seems full of life and enjoying the great outdoors. The outdoor life is obviously a big part of where you live. Yet another possible winner.

Mia

1) Great image. Excellent use of leading lines, and it's beautifully clear. A nice local harbour scene with a genius positioning of your signature!

Bambi

3) Well you succeeded in showing us what a beautiful place Nova Scotia is. As noted you did particularly well to capture the wave with the house in the background. I'm please you posted one without snow too, I know you get seasons just like everyone else :)

Mia

2) Yet another beautiful home. Thanks for sharing. Not only have you get a well tended lawn but you must have some spectacular scenery to look out on. Could that be a raised hot tub behind those canes by any chance? Good entry, I'm very jealous!

3) Nice image, with some more of that stunning scenery in the background. It does seem a shame to get the weed killer involved!

Mike

1) A great image that has obviously taken some thought beforehand. It's great to show some of the key landmarks of the city and the concept of contrasting old and new works well. Composition and IQ are great and a good choice to go with a mono shot, which I always like. Another potential winner.

Aaron

Just scraping in there eh? ;)

1) That's a fine looking bridge. As you commented, I think it let down by a lack of interest in the sky, and I personally would have preferred to see it positioned on one of "the thirds." Still I'm sure it would have been instantly recognisable to a lot of folks around the area.

2) A lack of interesting sky is obviously not the case with this entry. I don't think they get much more dramatic. For me the long road reminds me of this part of America. I recall on my previous visits, you have miles and miles of perfectly straight roads which I know many people spend far to much of their time commuting on. Oh it they could only experience sights like these more often! Great entry.

3) I really like this. Partly because of my personal weird fondness for photos of statues, but mainly because of the amazing contrast you have managed to capture in the sky. The deep blacks and brilliant whites give a hint of a brewing electrical storm, very fitting for the subject of your image. I like how the sculptor has depicted Mr Edison in his youth, obviously relevant to the time he spent in Port Huron.


Great work everyone, it has been a very interesting, educational and enjoyable journey through all the places you call home and I hope you enjoyed it to. There wasn't one image I didn't like, but as ever, I have to try and pick a favourite. He is my short list:

    Phil's 1st entry, the cycle path
    Patrish's (well Wally's really) 3rd entry, feeding the seagulls
    Scott's 3rd entry, the amazing waterfall
    Bambi's 2nd entry, the Pooch Portrait
    Mia's 1st entry, the good ship MiaDelight
    Mike's Black & White Cityscape
    Aaron's (very late) 2nd entry, the Rainbow Road

There's a lot there to choose from and making a final decision is not easy at all. I think I'm going to have to go with my heart and congratulate Bambi for her fantastic pet portrait! To be honest, every time I see it at the top of the banner, it will make me smile.

Thanks again everyone for your contributions!

Bambi, over to you...

Congrats Bambi! I must admit, I keep wanting to look at that photo. It is very cute!

Thanks for all the thoughtful feedback Timmy!
