This challenge is all about movement. You can pan, keeping the subject sharp and the background blurry; you can use a slow shutter and a tripod to keep the background in focus and the subject showing the action. You can show us stop action, which can be super in sports, with the subject in mid-air contortions; you can use your software to imply movement of any of these types. Take or manipulate a photo of anything that will show us the world around us is not static, even when captured as a stable image.

Have either of you moderators considered appealing to the troops out here for ideas on new challenges? I'd suggest asking for *private* messages, so you could do some weeding out yourself before publishing or using them. However, you might alternatively choose to do the "democratic" (quotes intended)thing and ask people what they want to do next. (We suggest, you dictate).

It's in the natureof this forum that it'll get harder & harder to be original.So I hope you have a big long list of challenges hidden somewhere, and in the oft-repeated words of my long-dead grandfather, "I wouldn't like to be you".

Your picture reminds me of when I raced in Wilcox, Az., a long time ago. Is this someone you know?
Thanks

:-)Yes, it is my husband. He WISHES he had ever raced in AZ! He just does the WI/ MN hillclimbs and motocrosses. This is a track in Hixton, WI. It is awesome. It has woods trails, a family trail, kids motocross track, adult track, and hillclimb. Our whole family races.



SORRY to the board...I can see now that I posted my entry incorrectly. This is just my second day. I apologize and I'll try to do better in the future!!
