Submit up to three (3) images relating to or displaying the essence of the theme. For the grand finale of our ‘The Elements’ series, here’s your challenge… Show us images that COMBINE as many of the FOUR Classic Elements (Earth, Water, Air, Fire) as possible WITHIN the image. The winning images will be the most artistic combinations of these Elements. The minimum requirement is two (Elements), but three, or all four, will weigh in your favor. The judge states that the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place images will be evocative and involving, not merely photos containing each element. Say something with your images!
