    Weekly Challenge Apr.27 - May 4 : Street Photography

    Vermonster was the winner of the "Bridges" Challenge and issued the "Masks" Challenge. He has selected his winner, who has now issued the next challenge:


    "Street Photography"





    Ok, enough of the easy stuff that can be done in your living room.

    This challenge is designed specifically to get your butts out of the house and push you creatively!

    "Street Photography" is pretty much anything Urban related, like Public spaces, graffiti, people, subways, streets & alley ways, wealth, poverty & culture. Something that truly captures the feel of urban life. Get IN the city for these submissions. Cityscapes and anything taken from a distance (like across a river etc) will not cut it. Everyone has a city...let's see it!! If you are extremely rural, get creative and use what you have, but make me believe it was taken in a city at least. Obviously, the more creative, powerful and emotional, the better. I don't want to just SEE the city...I want to FEEL it as well.

    I do not expect many entires for this, but hope you all prove me wrong.



    Be sure to visit the Weekly Challenge Rules & Guidelines for more information. This thread will be closed on May. 4 (midnight EDT)...so get those photos in!


    The Rules


    1. Photos must be posted to the thread in order to be considered for the challenge.
    2. Any photo submitted for a weekly challenge must be taken during the dates specified in the challenge thread and taken by you! Because not all EXIF data can be verified, we will use the honor system here.
    3. Challenges will be judged solely by the winner of the previous week. There will be no individual voting.
    4. Only one photo entry per member, for each challenge.


    There will be no cash or prizes awarded for the Weekly Challenge, unless specifically noted by the site administrator.
    This is a member-run contest, and the purpose of the Weekly Challenge is to encourage member participation on the forums and to keep you taking pictures!

    Any photo will be accepted for the challenge. Edited/straight out of the camera, it does not matter, as long as it complies with the specs of the challenge.


    This challenge is now officially open. Good luck!

    Actually, I'll go a bit further than that.

    I don't expect a lot of submissions this week either, and here's why: this is a real challenge. I do not want to diminish the value of our weekly challenges here. We all move outside of our comfort zone when we participate in these by putting someone else in the driver's seat and let them pick our subjects for us. This is how we grow and get better. But while most of these challenges push our boundaries, none will push our limits like this one. This one is personal. It's not about the subject or about post-processing. It's about you.

    Good luck, everyone! I hope to see lots of photos this week!

    If it doesn't stop raining, I won't get any shots this week. "Street" or otherwise. I have a few ideas, but was wondering if the shot is expected to include people as in the example? My ideas will include street shots, but there is rarely a crowd of people.

    based on the description, seeing things like graffiti, alley ways etc....and "people" being listed seperately, I would guess it is safe to say that it doesn't have to have people in it.

    Us poor old country boys hate getting into the city. Mainly because thats where all the cops are and I have to be perlight.

    (Did ya notice the accent in there?)

    I will be waiting until the last minute on this one because I don't drive and its about a 10 mile walk into town.

    This ought be FUN!!!

    You have to stand for something, otherwise you will fall for anything.
    Despite the high cost of living, itís still very popular.
    Light travels faster then sound, that is why some people appear bright until they open their mouth.

    Thats a really nice pic Curt. You captured that "early morning" feel nicely. I love the architecture and perspective.

    I don't think it falls within the specified dates of being taken though, since you came back from Sweden a week ago....unless you are there again? (can't view exif at the moment)
