  Current challenge: #168 P is for Panachallenge.
In recognition of our 200th Panachallenge, take any image with the letter "P" somewhere in it. The letter "P" can be uppercase, lowercase, in a manuscript, on a sign, in a logo, or whatever. Impress us with your photographer's eye and your imagination. (168 regular challenges + 32 mini challenges = 200). The winner of the Main Category gets to choose a subsequent theme.

  Current challenge: Mini#32 Monochrome, 2016
It has been 3 years since we last explored this photographic staple, so again, let's try to see the world in black and white (toned monochromes are welcome too). If your viewfinder allows you to frame a scene in monochrome, try it. If not, use your mind's eye. Colors can take attention away from the visual building blocks of a great photo; texture, tonal contrast, shape, form and lighting. A photographer shooting in monochrome should learn how to use all these elements to create a memorable image. Understand that not all subjects are suitable for monochrome, so experiment!

  Past challenge: #167 Resolutions, 2016
2016 is upon us, so, take a photo to illustrate, or provide incentive for, a New Year Resolution (such as lose weight, get fit, travel more, climb a mountain, etc). It DOES NOT have to be your personal resolution. Include a description of the resolution in your title or Extra Info. In case you need them, here are some resolutions to get you started. http://bembu.com/100-new-years-resolutions The Open Category winner chooses a subsequent theme. (created by leanneqld)
