Submit up to three (3) images relating to or displaying the essence of this week’s theme: ‘A Skewed View.’ Cameras are normally held either horizontally or vertically. Not in this contest! Instead, show us your “skewed views” where the camera is rotated or twisted to create a compelling photo. The judge will be looking for images that illustrate the theme in an interesting, provocative, and creative way that engages the viewer.
