    Rules (Copied from the first thread)

    #1 You may submit only one photo per contest.

    #2 The contest runs for exactly one week, from the time stamped on the first post in the thread (this will be made by the winner of the previous week's contest).

    #3 Please refrain from commenting on the photos submitted in the contest. I think that a good photograph is one that can appeal to someone who may not know much about the technical aspects of photography. I think it would be best if the judge isn't swayed by someone else's opinion of the photograph.

    The judge will decide his/her favorite at the end of the week, place a post listing it and a short synopsis of why he/she chose that photo. The winner is then responsible for starting a new thread containing a new contest and topic which again will run for exactly one week.

    This week's theme is 'strength'.

    Sorry guys, I've been doing a ton of traveling the last few days, so I havent had a chance to finish the judging until now.

    This week's winner is ghostguts.

    This portrait is simply gorgeous; there is such power in her eyes. She is strong, but not scary, with a story in her face. Technically, the shot is great; nicely desaturated colours, great lighting, especially around her face. All in all, it perfectly captured the theme.

    Thanks to everyone who submitted pics. They were all great, and this was not an easy choice.

    Ghostguts, the next contest is all yours...
