This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

Upside-Down World

This challenge closed over 3 years ago.

The Challenge

If you ever looked through a crystal ball, of just through a glass of clear liquid, you must have noticed how the image is upside-down. We want to see what you captured this way. Doesn’t matter which way you post it (as captured, or as to show the refracted image ‘the right way up’), as long as it’s clear you have both the refracted image, and (at least) some of the refractive object through which you took that picture. As usual, see the avatar for an example

  1. NO reflections for this one – only refractions
  2. Please, NO circular panoramas – this is not what we’re after in this challenge.

WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!


  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 added writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)

Judging / Voting Criteria

Please vote for your favourite(s) that fit the theme, as many as they are. Every vote counts!

Rewards & Prizes

  1. Bragging rights
  2. Banners for top ten photos
  3. Features for the Top 10 and 2 host choices (or as many from the top 10 that are in the group, plus the remaining places as ‘hosts’ choices’).
  4. Top ten will be invited to participate in next month’s Avatar challenge

Additional Information

  1. Please remember this is the photography challenge group :-)
  1. Works not added to the group cannot be featured when they end in the top 10 (‘computer says NO’). Adding to the group once the challenge is over will be too late. Please add your work to the group as you add it to the challenge! :-)
