    Hi everyone,

    Thanks to those who took part in the May challenge, let's see how the vote goes this time.

    The Photo Challenge this month is on the theme "Window to the Soul"

    Please email your photo to photochallenge@thephotoforum.com and remember to enter the subject as indicated.

    All photos must include the form when submitted. Just copy and paste it into your email. This will ensure that no mistakes are made when photos are submitted and therefore, hopefully, no photos are excluded. If the form is not included in the submission email the photo will not be included in the challenge gallery and voting process.

    There is more important information regarding rules and procedures located in the FAQ section. We highly recommend that you take the time to read these FAQs.

    Good luck to everyone and have fun with this challenge!

    *150KB will be taken as the &#8220;size on disk&#8221; and not the actual file size. Also some email programs consider 1KB=1000Bytes as oppposed to 1KB=1024Bytes. When these programs calculate attachment size they will often read larger then they actually are. To be safe we recommend a target size of about 140KB so that once sent it does not go over 150KB.

    Although the expression is 'the eyes are the window to the soul', I can think of a few other ways to interpret "window to the soul". Now whether I can convey it photographically is another matter!

    Darn it I had a nice twist on that one. Too bad it's already posted to the forum. Hey Chris, ok to post it here to give some people more ideas than just eye shots?

    Hi Anti :salute:


    EDIT, some religious overtones as a twist...

    I've already got two other twists on it that have nothing to do with eyes, so go ahead.

    So long as the photos are all yours, then I'd say that was OK.

    Very interesting idea. I never thought of eyes at first when I saw this. I guess that's the good thing about photography. It's all in what we interpret. I have a few ideas and I'll be throwing mine in there!
