Submit up to three (3) images relating to or displaying the essence of the theme. Just as judge David Gubernick captures the beauty and magic of our world, your challenge is to focus on the magic of flowers. Intimate details, colors, textures… … surprise us with your close-up or macro views. Let your camera speak the language of flowers. 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.
