    Congratulations to everyone who participated in our 28th challenge! The piece started out as a minimal abstract, went through many changes, and came out... another abstract! Be sure to check it out in the Gallery! :D

    This thread will kick off the 29th challenge, so those interested in participating please start signing up here. :D

    Please see the Rules and Guidelines for MobiChallenges posted HERE

    Specific Rules & Guidelines for this Elements of Surprise Challenge:

    (1) Using apps such as, but not limited to, Juxtaposer, Superimpose, Montage, Flowpaper and so on, this challenge is an iPhotographic "tag team" of sorts. Each person will take their turn, handing off the photo to the next person and so on until everyone playing has participated.

    (2) There will be a "sign up" period and everyone who wants to play will go on a list, numbered in order of sign up. Maximum number of participants will be 10 people.

    (3) Sign up will last for up to 5 day(s) OR once there are at least 5 people on the list, then the challenge will begin. Any latecomers will be added to the bottom of the list.

    (4) Player #1 will post a simple photo containing one "element" using any app of their choice. For example, a photo of a flower; a photo of just the sky; a photo of a winding road. OR, you can simply create a "background" image of just texture, with nothing else on it or it may contain ONE ELEMENT.

    (5) Player #2 will then add ONE ELEMENT to the photo using any app of their choice. For example, add a flower or a butterfly using Juxtaposer. OR, add a shape using Montage. The only limits are your creativity!

    (6) Player #3 will then add ONE ELEMENT, and so on to the end of the list.

    (7) Each player will be allowed 24 HOURS to add their ONE ELEMENT, otherwise their turn is forfeited and play moves on to the next player.

    Every participant will be a winner in this game, as we are combining all of our skills and creativity towards a final piece of art!

    I'd really love everyone to step out of their comfort zones. So while I think adding filters is a great way to enhance and change the mood of a photo, in this challenge it cannot be the ONLY "element". By element I mean some kind of object/shape added using Juxtaposer, Image Blender, Superimpose, Montage, etc. Feel free to use filters also, but an ELEMENT must be ADDED. :D

    HELPFUL HINT: If you sign up for the challenge, you can "Watch" the thread and get email notifications. This can help to alert you to the Challenge's progress, as we all get busy and can't always check in every day. :D :thumbs:

    Who will be the next participants in this fast-paced adventure?

    I am LOVING your creativity, dear MobiPeeps!! Seriously!! :inlove: You all ROCK. :notworthy:

    I do want to gently remind everyone about the main "rule" for EOS. It's really what sparked the idea for this challenge and something that I think sets it apart, and may perhaps help to "stretch" us creatively.

    I am sitting out this round. By the time we get home from babysitting for our two-year-old grandson, I should be able to get back in on #30! :-D

    I'm thinking about just taking a pic of the first thing I look up and see when my turn comes up and using that. I tend to read Mobitog in the restroom a lot. o_O

    Next time elle! :)

    Before I took part in my first EOS challenge I had never superimposed or blended an image in my life!
    It was my way of forcing myself to learn some new techniques and apps ... and it worked.
    The people who take part are a really creative group who inspire each other as the challenges progress.
    These EOS challenges are a blast, the bees knees and the best fun you can have with an iPhone! :D

    Wow!!! That makes me so happy!!! :D That was my exact intent with EOS, as it was quite an epiphany for me when I first learned how to blend.

    Thanks so much Robert!! :D

    You know...I made it a long time ago and really liked it myself. I did add grunge from snapseed but never thought it really stood on its own very well and didnt know what to do with it. Now that you mention it...I think you're right! Either way it should surely make for an interesting EOS!
