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

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

Red BUT NO flowers

This challenge closed over 4 years ago.

The Challenge

I know it’s June and there are lots of flowers in the Northern Hemisphere at this time – so what would be the challenge?! Not to mention it would be unfair to those in the Southern Hemisphere! So make it anything other then flowers, as long as

  1. it’s RED
  2. (not deep orange, not deep pink, not a spot in the corner – must be CLEARLY VISIBLE without a magnifying glass) – we check things on a couple of monitors each, they’re well calibrated – if it doesn’t look red to us, they’re not accepted, sorry.
  3. They also must conform to the usual rules, below.
  4. And if possible, no previous winners – challenge yourselves by taking or posting something new to this group.

Oh, and make it quick! Three days to enter, three days to vote – starting… NOW.

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!
