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

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

A boat out of Water.

This challenge closed over 4 years ago.

The Challenge

Exactly that. Must be a boat. Must not be in the water.

Not out at sea, in a lake, even in dock against a pier etc but still in water. Must clearly be out of water.

If in any doubt as to what we mean by that please do check the example photograph.

As close to straight out of the camera as possible please. No composites at all. No superimposed images. This is the photography challenge group NOT the photoshop challenge group. Thanks!


  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids, reptiles 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 :-)
