CALL FOR "THE SPICE OF LIGHT" THEMED PHOTOGRAPHY - October 28, 2010
This is an opportunity to express nature in a manner that doesn't necessarily express reality, but does express your feelings and experience at the moment of capture. And, by all means, if nature gave you that "perfect moment", then submit that moment! I want to see drama through the use of composition, color and light... an image that makes the viewer want to stop and spend time with your creation... an image that makes the viewer FEEL! Remember, it's within the beauty of nature that we find the essence of our souls. Up to 50 photographs will be chosen by juror Bruce K. Haley, Jr. for exhibition. Photographers set their own prices if they wish to sell their work, and retain all rights.
