  Current challenge: Mini#42 Best of 2019, So Far
A departure from our normal theme, for a more lighthearted review and exhibition of the first half of the year through our photos. Submit your best photo taken in the first 6 months of 2019. For this mini challenge, the following changes to the normal rules apply:
- Entries: photos must be taken between January 1 and June 30, 2019, inclusive. (Please don't submit July photos!)
- Anonymity: normally photos shouldn't be posted elsewhere, but that's fine this time.
- A photo previously entered in a Panachallenge is allowed if you are convinced it is your best of the year, so far.

All other rules are as normal. As usual, as of late, post-processing will be hidden during voting. You have 3 days to shoot something new, if your archives are suffering!!!

  Past challenge: #218 The Rule of 3 (NOT the Rule of Thirds)
The idea behind the Rule of 3 is that groupings of odd numbers are more pleasing to the eye. While odd numbers can be 1, or 3, or 5, or 7, the number 3 sticks out as one of the best. So for this challenge we will use the number 3.

The rule of 3 can be applied in very subtle ways, such as three lines, three curves, three sections of the composition, three strong colors, etc. It doesn’t have to be the main subject that utilizes this rule, it can be applied to secondary subjects or background materials. Entrants may want to point out, in the Extra Info box, what the rule is based on if the usage is a subtle one.

From the Greeks, who worshipped the amazing properties of triangles, to The Three Stooges, the number three has a special relationship with human perception, art, music, science, religion, and every other field.
