A Few words from MIke on the Creative Challenge. 

Everyone is going to be busy over the holiday period but when the festivities are over get out your cameras and be creative. My 'Challenge' is an attempt to encourage your creativeness. Entries have to be mounted prints and either colour or mono. No more than 2 prints per person. They have to be in on 10th January for the critique on 17th but, if that puts too much pressure on you, I could acceptentries even on the 17th. Cepta will bring in mounts on the 10th. Your prints should be labelled with the 'challenge' and your membership number. As an incentive the best picture will earn the photographer a copy of Steve McCurry's book 'Reading'. Its a beautiful book of this American photojournalist's shots taken around the globe of people in the act reading. Let me know if you haven't yet got a challenge from the 'hat' and I'll pick one for you. I think I pulled a short straw myself with 'Panning'. A Merry Christmas and happy New Year to you all.
