Well-composed photographs possess a few essential elements: an interesting way of seeing or interpreting the subject, solid craftsmanship that enhances the image, strong organization of the elements within the frame, and hopefully, a spark of life that makes the image memorable. This is a call for such photographs. All capture and processing methods are welcome.
