Photo challenge :: Manmade

scrapbooking photo challenge

Don’t worry – you don’t have to be in New York or even a big city to participate in our second photo challenge, I promise!

Your challenge is to take and post a photography of something manmade! The subject is entirely up to you, as long as it features something created by at least one person.

scrapbooking photo challenge

You can photograph whatever you would like, but the image needs to be snapped between now and the end of the crop — this weekend’s challenges are not for older images already in your photo library.

Post your image on Flickr, on your blog or in another online photo gallery. Leave a link to it in the comments on this post to be entered.

One winner will be randomly chosen to win Scrapper’s B&W Actions, a workflow of black and white processing options for your photographs. If you’re not a Photoshop user, you can choose another product of the same value from Two Peas in a Bucket.

Please see this post for all the deadlines and details about this weekend.

Now go find something to photograph on your lunch break!

    Great photo challenges so far, only thing I ask is can we have lots of rainy weather friendly challenges please! Weather for this weekend here is rain rain rain! As much as I want to take part I don’t fancy a drowning

    Can’t wait to join in with this crop! At work at the moment, camera is at home and anyway, it is pouring with rain outside in Essex! Hope the weather is better tomorrow as I am out for the day and will be taking loads of photos, using the ideas here to make them all that little bit more interesting!

    Something I helped in the making of… alas the weather today has meant the contrast isn’t as good as when we have lovely blue skies.
