    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 'love'.

    Not the best quality, but i tried slow shutter speeds and light painting. This one looks like a couple embracing each other, amazing i think haha. I tool this among others two or three years ago:cool:

    And the winner is Edge100. The photo is technically well-done in the richness of color and detail. The crux of the photo, however, is in its conceptuality. To me, the photo shows the simplicity of love (that should exist) between two people amidst the societal stresses and pressures that clearly surround them.

    Kudos, Edge100.

    I think you got it right on, ghostguts. The photo from Edge is outstanding - with the best narrative that speaks directly to your theme.

    Congrats Edge.
