Submit up to three (3) images relating to or displaying the essence of the theme. The Summer Solstice is upon us (in the Northern Hemisphere), and it’s time to mark the high point of long days and short nights. Summer is the warmest season and, for many, time for vacations, travel, and summer sports or recreation. Show us your best interpretations of Summertime! 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.
