The Challenge

This challenge requires you to submit an image of a shelter you have actually used. It could be your current home, your grandparent’s farm house where you visited, the old bus stop shelter you used as a child. Be creative. Don’t forget our basic criteria which is: Image of good focus, clarity and composition – focus is very obviously on the shelter and not on any other object in the image – very few if any people, animals, and other objects, and it should be in our gallery before submitting it for the challenge.

Judging / Voting Criteria

A well thought out composition with excellent clarity and focus.
