    Your Assignment:

    Choose your favourite landscape season photo from your collection and submit it. Think about composition, use of light and even the possibility of storytelling when you choose your best photo to submit. Haven’t got one yet? Get out there and shoot a Winter one! Remember this is your chance to show us your absolute best! Be tough on yourself and weed out the weaker ones to let the best rise to the top, then submit only one photo. Good luck!
