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

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

View FROM a Balcony

This challenge closed almost 5 years ago.

The Challenge

We’ve had the ‘balcony as viewed from outside, now it’s time to see what you saw FROM a balcony, somewhere.

  1. Must show a bit of the balcony too (so that we know it’s taken …er, from a balcony!)
  2. New work please – we can check the old challenges, you know :-)
  3. Can be an inside balcony too, though the intention is to show outside views in this challenge, mostly. See below for more samples of what we’re looking for
  4. Very important: The subject must be the view, not something or somebody on the balcony

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 or butterflies – thank you! (shouldn’t apply here, but…)
  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!

  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! :-)
