This week's contest theme is "Textures" -- I'm thinking of photos that emphasize the texture in the subject (or perhaps even where the texture is the subject). Rules: 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 one week, starting NOW! (see time/date stamp at the start of this thread.) At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible. 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). The contest will close on September 22 at 7:30 AM GMT.
