Submit up to three (3) images relating to or displaying the essence of the theme. This week, the focus is on two people (or animals) who are exhibiting a special relationship or some sort of connection. Differing from the earlier ‘Duo’ contest, no inanimate subjects for this one; couples should be living or breathing humans or animals or both. Show us your cool couples! 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.
