Digital manipulations

All entries should limit the use of digital manipulations to only file conversion, level, curve and sharpening. Adding elements to the original image that were not there are NOT allowed.


Voting & Comments

During the "open period", please do NOT enter the comments in the thread, this way we will have all the entries together without interruption and it's easy to view. Comments are welcomed during the voting period.


The Judge will select the top three finalists' work to include in the Poll for all members to vote on.


VOTING will follow after the end of Challenge, for one week only. Registering multiple user accounts to vote is not allowed.

In the event of a tie, the judge will make a decision between the tied finalists.



Chief Judge

The winner of current Bi-weekly Challenge will serve as the Judge for the challenge after the next, for example, the winner of Challenge #1 will be the Judge for Challenge #3.

Fishing seems to be my favorite form of loafing.


"Even a bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work."


I know the joy of fishes in the river through my own joy, as I go walking along the same river.


What do you think if the float does not dip, try again I think.
