***FEBRUARY PHOTO Contest Preliminary Thread 2*** [View all]

Last edited Sat Feb 17, 2024, 06:41 PM - Edit history (1)

Our February Contest has as its theme "now that is love". Valentine's. Any photo depicting love. The theme was expanded to include not only romantic love, but other forms of it as well, AND not confined to humans.

Our DU Photography Forum is dedicated to not only sharing our photos, but also discussing photography as an art, a skill, and a means of communication. Please keep those criteria in mind when voting.

There are three (3) Preliminary Threads. Please vote in all of them. The other preliminary thread links are here:
Preliminary Thread 3 https://www.democraticunderground.com/100218696216
Preliminary Thread 1 https://www.democraticunderground.com/100218696212

Preliminaries and Finals will run for 72 hours.

As always, the photographers appreciate your comments!
