    Great stuff! I enjoyed looking at all of them. I love the first and third pictures. The lines of shadows and the movement of the snow draws me in. I haven’t figured out what the third one is and please don’t tell me! 🙂

    Hello, I have been a subscriber of yours for quite some time now. I always read,but have never participated in any of your sponsored events. This most recent activity you had here for January 2016 was an interesting assignment. I was wondering if you can for future events ask of the submitting photographers what part of the world,USA state or county of origin their image was shot in. I also believe that other photographic artists would like to know what time of day the image was achieved and possibly the equipment, F/stop used to achieve the image. Are these images right out of the camera? or shown using software manipulation?

    Thanks, i am anxious to get your reply back. Thanks for your time.

      Hi David,

      The purpose of our photographic assignments is to help people grow creatively and as expressive artists. We firmly believe that great photos can be made anywhere (from your kitchen, your backyard or on your far flung travels). Location does not make a great image; creative vision does and so listing the location (or the camera equipment, camera settings and time of day) is irrelevant. Hopefully, the great images you see on our blog will inspire you to go out and do your own good work in your local area with what ever camera you own. Gear and location does not matter, what is in your head and who you are is what makes you an artist. The camera is merely a tool to externalize your inner vision.

    Hi Darwin, Hi Samantha,
    Wonderful collection of images! Love all the different style and how the shadow could be the main subject in a composition. Congrats to all!
