Its Time to Be CREATIVE

Another competition has been completed with some scoring high and some not so high.

I do believe we are all winners as we all benefit from the critiquing and advice from our judges.

Our next set subject is CREATIVE. Please read and digest what is meant by our definition. Competition closes on Wed 28th March.

Creative images should display a novel or innovative effect from an unusual point or view, an unusual combination of objects, or any other means. Images may be modified during or after exposure to create an experimental technique. There must be a basic photographic image, but digital manipulation may be used, provided the original exposure and the digital manipulation has been performed by the entrant.
