    From the first challenge:

    As the title suggests, each challenge lasts for 72-Hours. Everyone gets to submit 2 photos in line with the chosen theme. The winner of the previous challenge gets to choose the new theme (topics can be anything under the sun) and serves as the judge for his/her 72-hour challenge.

    For obvious purposes, the judge is disqualified from participating in his/her own 72-hour challenge. Instead, he/she should post up to 2 photos as examples to start out the challenge. Should the winner not be able to commit to being the next judge, the responsibility is passed on to the runner-up.

    At the end of the 72-hours (we don't have to be strict about 72-hours, especially with time differences depending on where you are on the globe), the judge will name a blue ribbon winner, a runner-up, and 1 honorable mention. As we all know, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. We may not all agree with the chosen winners; the judge is encouraged (but not required) to state what criteria he used to decide on a winner.

    To make sure we don't break any Mu43 rules/regulations, by participating in this thread you are allowing the judge to repost your image for the sole purpose of announcing the winners for "Your Best Shot: A 72-hour Blue Ribbon challenge."

    *This is an older photo taken with my old Canon DSLR. I didn't see any rules about limiting photos just to those from m4/3 cameras, but if there are any problems I can withdraw it but it was the only photo I have that would fit with "pink."

    The present.
    This was taken at Yale University. I was involved in a shot per day challenge and it was the end of the day. No picture yet, and the heat was on. I walked out and kind of aimlessly followed my nose. Suddenly the whole sky went pink. I composed and shot this on the spot. Pretty much took less than a minute. It was recently selected by a committee to be hung at Yale. A huge three foot by four foot copy of this is now hanging on the wall at my office.

    p481679437-5.

    Sunrise in San Francisco, taken from One Nob Hill. Three sets of three stacked exposures.

    p276239522-5.

    I have a couple (I've posted these in the native lens threads before) of pink shots. :smile: This would've been the perfect theme for the month of October.
