    Lately we haven't had a huge lot of submissions for the challenges, so this thread is for you to make suggestions on themes.

    Alternately you can PM a theme suggestion to Twist, Chase, MDowdey, Voodoo or myself.

    Tell us what you want. Suggest a theme and yours may come up in the future. :sillysmi:

    Ok, some new challenges:

    -Life/Death (celebration of Life, Inevitability of Death)
    -Extreme Close-ups
    -Abandoned Buildings/Ruins
    -Snow (I'm going on a limb here since I live in Phoenix!!)
    -Water/Fluidity
    -Motion

    Just a few I thought of. Sorry if some of them seem morbid, like Death and Ruins, but I think they are part of our Photographic Universe. While I don't condone killing anything alive :eek: , pictures of dead flowers or plants/trees can make strong statements.

    Anyone, let me know what you think. Voodoocat?

    Well our second challenge was water.

    Snow? What is the quickest way to snow from Phoenix? Flagstaff? I suppose we could always shave some ice and use that in a photo :D

    Why not cold?
    I certainly will have enough snow to do snow and am more them willing to share, but cold leaves it open for those of us enjoying warmer climates, they can find things in the freezer!
    :p

    how about the random words that have deep meanings?
    like pathos, grotesque, etc.

    I would like to see a night sky challenge, I spend a lot of time doing this and find it very rewarding, although you do have to have obsessive perseverance to be any good at it..My favourite type of shot is when you have something like your house in the foreground with all the stars visible above it, kind of reminds you that you&#8217;re on a ball of rock wizzing through space!


    Cheers

    Time-- the seasons, the passing of time (growing older, a broken down barn or somethign.. the ware of time on stuff...), preservance of things, growth and natural change, eternal/perpetuality....

    Majesty of Nature

    Majesty of the Unnatural (a big city shot, a shot of a skyscraper)

    simplicity

    sadness

    happiness

    life/birth (saplings, bambi shots..., mother duck with ducklings...)

    Christmas Decorations! Over here in the UK many people are spending huge amounts of money decorating their homes so could be interesting.

    Cheers,
