FOR THE 2014 "NEW YEAR, NEW HUNT" ROUND
WILL BE HELD ON
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2013 
at 12 NOON (mountain time zone) -
____________________________________________________

We're officially on DAY TEN of REVEALS from the 2013 AUTUMN round of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!
OUR LAST ALBUM

What is the photography scavenger hunt?
Only the most fun you can have with your camera!!

I host this event 4 times a year (seasonal) for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers
(this round's judges were +Alan Shapiro, +Ron Clifford, +Jan Kabili, +Robin Griggs Wood, and due to popular demand - me.)

I then open the albums up to the public - which is this stage.
Later today I will be posting the winners from this album.
There are 10 categories: This is the "*STRAIGHT OUT OF THE CAMERA*" album (no editing allowed), see my stream for the previous albums: "MUMMY", "GOLD", "THANKFUL", "CREEPY", "TREAT", "STUFFED", "SEATED PORTRAIT", "PUMPKIN" and "TRICK".

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(ONLY ONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "SOOC" album,
1 item seen in 320 different ways.
