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

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

Oranges, Tangerines etc

This challenge closed over 5 years ago.

The Challenge

Let’s go back to a fruity themed challenge (although I heard that Oranges are seeds, not fruit, let’s not worry about that!)

We want oranges, tangerines, satsumas or that other fruit I cannot think what it’s called that looks like the above.

Just that… oranges. Must be the main focus although other fruit in the (background of a) shot is fine eg in a fruit bowl etc. :-D

Not orange juice despite me getting inspiration from a juice pouch, nor dried oranges, just REAL oranges in their “normal” form :-)

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!

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, 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 :-)
