Might be cool to have a challenge where a photograph must showcase a particular sense...

Examples: "Take a photo that suggests to the viewer a sense of smell" (photos might include a skunk, a rose, a freshly baked pie...)

Could also be accomplished with "touch", "sound", "taste".

hrmm...very interesting. I like the idea. This one will force us to think.

Scents and Aromas was a long time ago... we're due a revisit maybe? :o)

Since scents and Aromas has been done... then how about touch or sound...or there is also the possibility of allowing the photographer to choose from one of the senses and then it is up to the viewer to interpret which sense is being demonstrated (and how clearly that is).

"Take a photograph in which a major element stimulates the sense of touch in your brain". This would include photos of anything that appear to have a tactile feel... examples might be the bottom of someone's dirty shoe, a pricked finger, etc...

or...

"Take a photograph that provides the viewer with a sense of sound". Examples might be a picture of some construction workers and a jackhammer, someone with headphones on, a stereo... etc.

I like this idea. Maybe the challenge could be something along the lines of the 7 deadly sins challenge and leave it open to the individual to depict their chosen sense.

It'd be interesting to see how touch and taste would be interpreted.

Sound

Not to say they aren't good ideas - even good enough for a second go!
