Ongoing CHALLENGE !!!

If your picture has been blogged here, it means that it has appealed to over 300 art jurors (currently 50 active) for a whole week or more. That is an achievement!!!

... and what does that mean ??? well according to This ... it means your picture is "... extremely resistant to people wanting to get rid of it", :)

If you see one single picture in this group that you think is not art, please say so (by commenting on it) and tell us why. If you are convincing - we will remove it. This group is to show case the most resistive pictures from the
B&W Art Photography - Is Your Art universal

A svemograph, originally uploaded by avezink.

Three quarters of yesterday's Svema 125 roll came out looking empty. Development gone wrong? Let's just say, it's a svemograph - a barely distinguishable imprint on the old film's clouded membrane.

Niland Boat Launch

Niland Boat Launch, originally uploaded by photodoc2.

Infrared image of the Niland Boat Launch area on the East side of the Salton Sea. The sea was formed in 1905 when the dam holding back the Colorado river compromised. Today, the salt levels are so high only Tilapia can survive.
Dead and mummified fish are laying everywhere due to an unexplained fish kill.
The park is abandoned and in complete disrepair.
