  Current challenge: Mini#45 Share What You Like
We are trying to spread a little joy during this challenging time in history. So look through your old photos from this century (which, hopefully, will bring back memories of happier times, and submit a digital photo to share with us. If you can manage to shoot something new to enter, that is fine too. Just don't put yourself at any risk! Judging will be a minor part of this challenge, as we are just trying to lighten the burdens of life right now. So, when voting, just pick what you like. No critiques needed for this challenge, but comments are welcome! No post-processing need be entered. However, please share something about your entry in the Extra Info space. Note: Though you will get an error message, you may enter non-Pany/Leica photos in the Main category for this Mini challenge.

  Current challenge: #229 Low Angle or Low Perspective Shot
Shoot whatever subject you want from a low perspective or, a low angle (not the same thing). For either type shot use a camera height no more than 1 foot (30 cm) above the ground (or floor). A low perspective can be used to create leading lines, to add depth to an image, to shoot towards a less distracting background, to exaggerate the size of objects, etc. The use of shorter focal length, i.e., wide angle, is recommended. Also, it must be apparent that the photo was taken from a low angle by including elements in the image that clearly show the camera is close to the ground. [The voting period is extended one day, due to the Easter holiday that many celebrate.]

  Past challenge: #228 On the Road Again
The theme is Travel - it doesn't have to be YOUR travel, nor does it have to be an actual trip. It's not about where we've been, but how we got there and what we encountered along the way. Rather than exotic local customs and beautiful scenery, we want to see suitcases, airport check-in lines, camper vans and traffic jams. The journey indeed is the reward! As usual, please disclose any use of multiple frames in the Extra Info area. The post processing information will be hidden during voting period. The winner of the Main Challenge will chose the next challenge theme. A forum has been set up at https://panachallenge.com/forum/forum_topic.php?id=871
