    Time has slipped me by. The schedule has been revised to bring it up to date.

    Welcome to the Fortnightly Challenge

    The purpose of the Challenge is to provide a venue where photographers of all skill levels can work to improve their craft by shooting along a common topic for two weeks - one fortnight. Helpful comments and critiques are key to reaching the intended goal - better photography.

    About Your Photos

    Shoot for the topics listed on the schedule. You may shoot for upcoming topics, but post photos only to their matching Challenges. Try to avoid using photos from your archives just for participations sake. If you really want input on an older image that fits the Challenge topic, please let us see it.

    You may post as many photos as you wish for any one Challenge.

    About Your Comments

    Comments are critical to the success of the Challenge. If you post a photo, add a comment to another one. If you are only viewing, please add your comments, too.

    Comments should be meaningful, something that the photographer can use to improve his/her work. Explain why you like or dislike a photo. Spend a moment looking at a photo before commenting on it. Try to answer the question "I like this photo because…" It really helps the photographer.

    Note: This is a special edition of the Fortnightly Challenge. Topics based on accepted photography guidelines will be supplemented with user suggested topics. For more on the basic rules of good photography look at this link:

    Your photo doesn't show. Is it Private or Public?

    Classic leading line photo. Maybe next time try focusing maybe a third of the way into the photo or at the first tree line to get the middle of the photo sharper??? Just a thought. Here's mine (I believe I have posted this once before-the Mission Mountains in western MT):

    Thanks for the input. I don't usually think of these things until I get home from my trip and it's too late.

    Here's another (I have very few photos with this technique it seems...)

    Light Graffiti. Now im not really sure about this photo following this topic, but when I look at it my eyes follow the lines. If you look hard enough, you can see my apple shrine in the background...

    Nice interpretations of the theme with these two photos.

    Melizard: Good job of making the classic road to the woods into an interesting photo. The incline of the hillside and the fog add to the pic.

    LumbermanSVO: Nice sweeping lines from both the top and bottom of the frame. They do a great job of moving the eye across the frame.

    Nice photos in the Challenge so far. Keep up all the good work and expand your photography horizons.

    The camera on that thing must be better than I think it could be. Very nice flow of lines into the frame. B&W is a good choice for this image, too. Interesting bridge. Where is it?

    I like the way the vanishing point works here. It pulls my eye into the frame. Old California architecture must be fun to shoot.

    Feel free to add to this thread until it's the 29 Th. on the West coast I'll try to start the Flash Effects Challenge before I hit the sack tonight.

    I don't know if it's still to late, but I'll give it a shot...
