    Thanks again to Kirill for the win! For the next challenge, I'd like to see some INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE shots. The more geometrical lines and shapes, the better. :biggrin: The contest should run until 4/3 8PM EST. Let's see your wide/ultra-wide angle shots. :thumbup:

    Some examples...

    Please refer to the comprehensive list of previous topics and winners via the links below:

    72 Hour Challenge Rules

    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 the 72-hr Blue Ribbon Challenge.

    Great idea Yekimrd while I don't usually shoot much of this here are two I took the last weekend from Union Station. I bet there will be some great shots in the one.

    I don't see where it says it must be taken with a micro 4/3 camera...but I'll still be upfront and indicate that this was taken with my Oly E-620 4/3 camera! If it disqualifies it...so be it!

    I love how this photo turned out looking like it's a black and white painting! It's inside the Vatican back in 2011 when I was in Rome and completed the full marathon (my first!).

    You're right. The rules aren't explicit but the hope is for micro four thirds featured photos. But, I'll allow it. :biggrin:

    I do hope others will also join.

    Not as much participation as I was hoping for. Nevertheless, these were all great entries. I'll only name a runner-up and a winner since we didn't have much numbers.

    The runner-up goes to Sac
    P1010031_Custom_.

    And the winner of the 72-hr Blue Ribbon Challenge: See You Inside is elavon. I know that this is an oft photographed staircase and yet I never tire of seeing it. Congrats!

    Did you see the shots the Tom posted today in the 7–14 lens thread of the Blue Mosque? It makes me crave large building interiors. (Hmm, I just thought of a place on campus that might be interesting...)
