Huffhines staff SHOULD NOT be asked to determine the category for your image.

Abstract – Little or no pictorial representation; emphasis is on color, shape and spatial relationships.

Anything Goes - Got a great shot but it doesn't fit in any of the other categories? Submit it here!  

Cityscape/Architecture – Design and style of manmade structure(s) or object(s), taken either day or night, in a city setting. 

Experimental/Enhanced – The alteration of a scene or subject so that it is obviously unrealistic. The image being altered must begin as a single original photo taken by the contestant. Post production effects may be achieved by any means at the photographer’s disposal, as long as the result depicts a significant deviation from reality.
