This is the place to submit and vote on photos for the week of 23July to be featured on the main site. This contest should showcase your best quality work, demonstrating at least moderate skill with a camera and a general understanding of the artistic aspects of photography. Remember, the selected photo will be displayed on our main site header for a week. Submit something that you and the members of our site will want to look at and admire for seven days!  This contest is for the community to choose what they LIKE (not what they dislike), with the most liked being displayed on the main site header for a week.

This week, there is no particular theme for the contest. All photos which would be appropriate for the banner are welcome.

Submissions may be added any day of the week until voting closes. The winning image (with the highest votes) as of the close of voting will be exhibited on the main site.

For me, photography is an opportunity to focus my entire being on observing the world around me. I experience life in other peoples' perspectives, and capture the day-to-day memories that make life the wonderful thing that it is.

Watching this girl, completely terrified to go near the glass-covered edge of a high platform, be comforted by her father enough to actually touch and lean on the glass was absolutely incredible. It was a moment of gratitude and love for herself, a moment of extreme pride for her father, and a moment of awe and inspiration in my eyes.

People are so cool! :)

Many think my picture has been faked in some way.
But, this is the real me. Really!
