4th of July – Celebration- PhoozL

PhoozL

4th of July – Celebration

THIS WEEK’S PHOTO CONTEST THEME: ‘4th of July – Celebration’

Submit up to three (3) images relating to or displaying the essence of the theme. Inspired by the July 4th holiday in U.S. but going beyond that, consider summer or national celebrations in all their forms: fireworks, parades, concerts, BBQs, picnics, etc. Show us your best celebration captures, and if they’re connected to the 4th of July holiday and/or with fireworks, even better! The judge will be looking for images that illustrate the theme in interesting ways that engage the viewer; plus normal judging criteria of: originality and creativity, photo technique and/or quality, and overall artistic merit.

CONTEST JUDGE: Kevin O’Connor is a professional photographer, designer, and color management expert. He teaches well-received classes in these subjects, delighting his students with wit, patience, and a deep knowledge of these subjects gained over 35 years of professional work. He celebrates seeing other photographers’ work as they celebrate light and shadow, composition and form.
