    Since we were going with the basic elements and the last one left is - Space, I’ve decided to go with the flow but it doesn’t necessarily need to be related to astronomy directly and can be interpreted in any way you see fit. So let’s get the ball rolling.

    Rules are the same as always -

    · The photographs must be your own work.

    · Be creative and have fun.

    · You may only submit one photo per contest.

    · Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.

    · The contest runs for a week and starts now!

    · At the end of the week, last week’s winner will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible.

    · If the winner is unable to complete the selection within 48 hours of the deadline for close, then a vote will be carried out to select a winner. This will be based on the number of "likes" each image has. In the event of a draw, the second place winner from the previous week will choose the tiebreaker.

    · The 1st place winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place).

    · Please update the Weekly Contest Master List when you post a new contest.

    This one is probably the most difficult of the five.

    I would agree with you but given the creativity and talent of the people who roam this part of the universe I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the submissions.

    Congrats to all the winners of the last brief, thanks for the feedback. I took this one of my daughter last night, lucky it seems to fit the brief well. It's part of a narrative I am putting together for uni Beam me up.

    Completely agree. I’m so hyperactively excited to see the entries this time that winning the last competition doesn’t feel like a curse anymore.

    You might think differently on judgment day. :eek:

    In Mahāyāna Buddhism, the Sanskrit word “shunya” means space or void. Buddhism teaches us that all spiritual journeys begin from nothing. For the Greeks, the fifth element was “aether” or “spirit.” My entry explores the spiritual side.
    This was done in camera with the only processing being cropping and adjusting levels.

    This is reminiscent of the climactic scene of the movie "The Fifth Element." Nicely played.

    Let's go folks. This is a tough theme and it is already going to be hard to judge, but we can give akash.nu more than just 6 images.
