Colours of Australia

This challenge closed over 5 years ago.

The Challenge

Australia is a place of striking contrasts. Brilliant blue skies, red soils and golden beaches. No close-ups for this challenge please. We’re looking for landscapes that show the strong natural colour contrasts that can be found. It can be the sand against the sky or any other combination so long as the colour is natural and not from over-cooking in Photoshop.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Voting is open to all members and in case of a tie, the host (Susan Adey) will decide. You may vote for as many images as you like.

Rewards & Prizes

Bragging rights and the first four placegetters will have their work featured on the groups homepage and are eligible to enter in the SUPER challenge which starts on the 10 March 2013.

Additional Information

The image must accepted into the group before it can be entered in the challenge. Any images that are not in the group or that do not meet the challenge criteria will be removed.
