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, #4, is "SELF PORTRAIT." Use your imagination and creativity to capture the photo you feel best represents this week’s theme. Have fun!!!

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.

Thanks to all of you who were brave enough to take the challenge. It's pretty difficult to make a self portrait while using your hands and eyes to bend. Mirrors, composer and tripod seem to be necessary. I worked on it a bit and found it a real challenge.

So, on to the winners - or actually winner. I didn't feel it was fair to choose 3 winners of only 4 entries.

ScottM - the baton passes to you for the next challenge. You've won. It's a striking portrait that says much about you.

jbrunges - congratulations on having the guts to go first, I love the detail of your watermark in reverse on the mirror!

David -I really liked this composition - the curved shape of the sweet spot, the curved bar and your compressed shoulders - all pointing to your face which has another curve in its upside down smile. Sure wish the slide wasn't there. But the ball adds humor.

Captured Light - Great moody portrait - truly love it.

Thanks again to you all. It's been a great experience.
