Including EXIF info (camera model, lens, shutter speed, aperture, focal length etc) is warmly encouraged and welcomed, but not compulsory.

Please note the standard challenge rules and posting guidelines (see the stickied thread in the Challenge Board).

Please also remember there can be no comments on people's submissions for the challenges (to keep the voting fair), either in this thread or in other threads while the challenge is running. Comments on submissions will be deleted without notice.
