Yes, the rules state "Take a picture of something that has outlived its usefulness. It could be old technology, broken, discarded, outgrown, forgotten - anything. Exception: people (alive or dead) are not to be the main subject."

Do abandoned things qualify for this challenge?

i hope tons of time at least...

the obsolete challenge is my second...metal was my first. I'm only 13, and I figure that even if I don't do very good,(right now my metal picture is at 4.6) there'll be lots more!

SC has nothing to do with posting challenge topics, or writing the descriptions for them...

Wow, with the challenge going into voting stage pretty soon, I'm glad that I read this thread! I had to include in my title a word from the challenge topic. ;)~

Over-analysation is running rampant. (And yes, I wanted to spell it that way.)

Ok let's not turn this into hot competition. Everyone one here is an artist with a unique style so let the public vote on what they like and leave it at that. Boasting will get you NOWHERE.

I still have no idea how to solve it!


when we were kids the way to impress your friends by solving this was to take off all the stickers and put them where they belonged! :0)

When choosing an entry stop and don't over analyze or say to yourself "what would everybody think.." Just go with your gut. Don't second guess yourself. Then submit it and heave a sigh of relief.

I think this one is going to be really fun to view.

Do I go with the "pretty" pictures that will be cliched and several others of the same object(s)? Or do I go with the more original, but not as such a "pretty" shushu frufru shot?
I want a higher score, but I don't want to sell out either......


Ah...the eternal struggle;)

I think you should delete your picture... challenges and their photographers are supposed to be anonymous (sp)

I have one at my desk at work, and I solve it every other day. I found nothing to replace it yet, so I guess No, not obsolete. Antique maybe, but definitively not obsolete.

On the other hand, my pick is so obsolete that notmany people would recognize what it is. So, if you run into something in the challenge that you have no idea what's it for, please assume that it does meet the challenge.
