This is the seventh time we’ve put a challenge together and each has been a terrific collection of street shots from around the world. The emphasis with this challenge is on the image, not on the equipment or the reputation of the photographer.

Use whatever equipment you like, from a rangefinder to a DSLR or a cell phone… it doesn’t matter. Film or digital… your choice. Use your creativity and tool of choice to capture an image that will delight the viewers/voters and reflect your inspired vision of the world around you.

This is a fun competition, see if your local photo group wants to take part and make it a day of shooting and stories. Others may choose to go it alone, concentrating on your environment and the search for that “moment”.

Whether you’re a seasoned street shooter or someone who just wants to give it a try, go for it!

Prizes: As usual Prize Donations will be appreciated (contact me if you're interested in donating). I will kick things off by offering a $100 Adorama gift card!

Finally, tell your friends who may be interested in participating!

Last day to vote!

You have until 11:59 pm tonight (1/25) California time to vote for your favorites in the Decisive Challenge.
