    Here's my submission. This motion was almost too much, still took some sharpening to bring it out.

    The hummingbird is a great symbol of motion, those little guys never stop! It amazes me that the can stop on a dime in the air, hover there perfectly still except for the beating of their wings, and then just dart off at a blink of an eye.

      Thanks T Paul. One observation about this challenge is that it is very difficult to find. I found this challenge from the "Home" page and that is the only way I have found to get to it. All the other Challenge links do include a link to this challenge. Maybe I am not looking in the right place?

          Gallery Challenge #9 - Motion

          I think your posts belong over there (above link). Maybe if T Paul moves them over, the thread will be easier to find?

            The posts are in the correct place, but I agree these challenges tend to get overlooked, because you have to go to the gallery forum to find them...not to be confused with the gallery which is completely different

            I'll talk to Doug and see if it is possible to place a link to all the various challenges on this great web site from the CHALLENGES page.

              Thumbnails on list of challenge submissions?
              by Lilla
              I've looked at all or almost all of the challenge submissions by now. I find it very interesting to see the results and read the notes by the artist. I find myself going back several times now to look/read again certain submissions.

              The tintype challenge was especially interesting to...

              Photorealism Challenge: Toothbrush
              by T Paul
              In this challenge you can use photos for reference, but none can be used for the actual image. You must create the image from scratch. Be sure to include your steps, as this will be a great way to pick up some new techniques.

              Create a photorealistic toothbrush. If you...

              Challenge: Odd Combinations
              by T Paul
              For this challenge you are to take an ordindary object and change it into a material that typically wouldn't be used to make the object. For instance a hammer made out of glass. Or a coffee cup covered in fur (talk about hairballs...)

              Attach your file to your first post (no URLs, please)....

              by Doug Nelson
              Here's an exercise for your composition skills.

              The challenge:

              Go to and turn on Street View (you'll need Flash installed)
              Use Street View and only Street View to compose a photo (ie: no retouching)
              Capture the photo and attach here...
