Welcome to the fifth theme in the 2010 Challenge! For the next four weeks, we will be shooting one photo each week, with the theme of FLOWERS. It’s springtime in many parts of the world, and the flowers are starting to bloom. Feel free to shoot flowers in the wild, flowers in a vase, flowers wherever you find them. Shoot the details of a single blossom, or a wide expanse of wildflowers in a field.
I’m sure you’ll discover that you have found some beautiful photographs attempting this theme each week, but please only submit one per week for the 2010 Challenge.Seeing that we’re encouraging everyone to submit just one photo for each week of the 2010 Challenge, make sure the one you finally select is your best. If you’re not being forced to select one from many good photos, then you’re may not be challenging yourself enough. We trimmed the 2010 Challenge down to one shot a week, for the very reason of allowing you the freedom and time to plan and practice each week’s shot. Shoot many, but select just one.
Let’s not forget the guidelines, Ok? You can post your weekly shot any time during the week. When posting, please add your photo to the photochallenge.org pool on flickr, and tag the photos with “2010challenge” and “2010challengeXX”, where XX is the week in a two digit format (17, 18, 19, 20). Of course, you are welcome to join in at any time, and if you miss posting during one week, just make it up the following week. This is about having fun and challenging yourself to become a better photographer, so the rules are guidelines. You won’t be punished or banned from the group if you miss a week or make up a shot.
For the active outdoor enthusiast that wants to keep their camera/binoculars at the ready and always secure. Go out and discover!
