Submit up to three (3) images relating to or displaying the essence of the theme. Fall has begun (in Northern Hemisphere), but that’s no reason to stop thinking about flowers, whether still blooming, died or dried. Our theme is Florals but the restriction is Mobile-only, new or archived. Show us your best flowers, and, if possible, list the mobile device (phone, smartphone, tablet) and any apps used to process the image (may also process on the PC). 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.
