  Looks like it's still the category to place your Special Effects photos but now everyone else can dump whatever into this category as well. Read more here.

  Let's not get that same old arguement going again. It's just what it says, a catch all for things that don't really fit under the other categories.

  Yes, hello friends!

I did just update the contest pages, renaming the "Special Effects" category to "Catch-All". Catch-all will be for everything, including special effects, still life images, and whatever else doesn't fit into the other categories.

Thanks for your thanks, Kay :)

Happy New Year to all,

  Great! This has been the subject of many threads, and I reckon this is a good approach and a sensible response.
Thanks, Jim.

  thanks- I hadn't really thought of it for still life and recognized it as special effects. Now I can add more still lifes to the collection-- is muchly appreciated since I am learning this new Fach--and sorry for the singing terms, but doubt if I will ever be a "photographer".
