!!*Photography* Challenge Group!! Happy Holidays :-)

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

Cloudy Day Photos

This challenge closed over 5 years ago.

The Challenge

We only want to see ‘cloudy day’ photos: outside shots, no sun, no shadows, no dusk, no storms, drizzle OK, but downpours not OK, shots through really wet glass mean proper rains, so not now, please). We want to see what people make of a dull day – challenge your photographic skills, it’s easier to take pretty shots in sunshine :-) May be new or old shots, but overly textured are not acceptable. Shots that you were ready to throw away because of the featureless sky, but you turned to B&W/Sepia, that kind of thing (like the sample on the right, which I was ready to throw away).
If you can see a shadow, it’s not a dull day
