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

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

The Moon

This challenge closed over 4 years ago.

The Challenge

The Moon must be the focus, though preferably not the sole object in the frame. We’re not looking for astronomical photos of the Earth’s satellite – the relationship with this things on this planet is more interesting.


  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids or butterflies – thank you!
  2. also, nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  3. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)

Note: Please don’t be disheartened if your image is removed from the challenge, you can always ask us why that happened, but the usual answer starts with the challenge description – please read it :-)

Here are another few examples:
