And again, we are all looking for inspiration and competitions seem to get the creative juices flowing. We are continuing with the weekly challenges.

The winner gets to judge the following week. Here are the rules. Hope this catches on. I will be the judge and the winner will set the next week's theme and then be the judge for that theme. Please hold comments until after the winner is announced.

The second challenge, #3, is "SIMPLICITY." Use your imagination and creativity to capture the photo you feel best represents this week’s theme. Have fun!!!

Photo Submissions:

1. Camera - Any Camera
2. Time - any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Post-Processing - do whatever you like and the judge will decide if it works.
4. Posting - * ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.* Photo Name in the message subject line.* Camera model & Lensbaby used.* Notes -- post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
6. Commenting - No commenting during challenge. When the posting is closed and a winner has been declared, comments can be made in this thread.
7. Have FUN!

One challenge every week, on the following schedule:

* New Topic - After winner is declared.
* Posting Starts - Right after topic is announced.
* Posting Ends - 9pm EST (eastern) Monday October 27, 2008. Winner will be announced shortly thereafter.
* Winner from this competition decides the theme of the next one (and judges it for a winner) after this competition is closed.

Regards,

Thank you all for participating and sharing your photos! Very nice variety of subjects and takes on the theme! Never really had to judge anything in my life, and while the tastes could very well very from one another… So here it goes:

1st place: lefteye with “Just Breathe” There is something so dreamy and surreal about this photo, just makes me want to be that person!

2nd Place: jumpinjimmyjava with “The Catcher” Magically intriguing subject and can be interpreted in many ways!

3rd lace: jbrunjes with "Lonely Tree" Very nostalgic feel with the perfect treatment for the subject.

Nicely done veryone!

lefteye – congrats, time for you to kick off next weekly challenge!

Regards,
D

Thank you D-
I'm quite honoured. The images submitted were great, so I feel doubly blessed. By the way I'll be updating my profile. And I assume we start the next challenge in a new thread? You'll have to be a bit patient with my late/early replies as I'm in New Zealand.
