Welcome to the Fortnightly Challenge Photo Thread 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. 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.
