Photo Challenge Roundup - 2/11

By K David in Photo Contests on Feb 11, 2015

Much of the U.S. is trapped inside thanks to a series of heavy storms. Europe, too, has seen snow, cold, and heavy cloud cover this week. About the only place around with good weather this week has been Australia. So whether you're stuck inside editing your photos or out enjoying a lull in the summer heath, this is a great time to post and share in the Pentax Forums contest threads!

In the Northern Hemisphere, spring is approaching quickly. In the Southern Hemisphere, autumn will arrive sooner than you realize. This is a great time to get those end-of-season photos. To help spur your photographic creativity, here are some of the the many contests and events currently happening on PF. You can find them all (and hundreds upon hundreds of photos) in our Monthly Photo Contest,  Weekly Photo Challenges, and Mini-challenges forums.

The winning image in our "Sweets" photo contest

Thank-you to everyone who nominated and voted for my photo in November 2014's “Sweets” contest.  It was a wonderful Christmas present to learn that my image had been selected.

Each month,I look forward to learning the topic for that month’s contest.  It gives me a focus for my photography and ensures that I’ll take at least one picture of something other than my dog.
