Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait Of An Artist Summer Challenge

Welcome to our Fifth Portrait of an Artist Challenge. The theme of our new challenge is “Portraits Under The Rain”.  The purpose of this challenge is to evoke very strong and intense feelings through the use of metaphors about the weather. How would you represent what makes Summer special where you live? How would you be like if you were the Summer?

Dates for submission are from August 10th through September 10th, 2017.

Please read the following instructions:

All submissions must be posted ONLY to our specific Portrait of an Artist Flickr Challenge group – link here. 

Not to any other group from TheAppWhisperer. You will be able to add them to any other group of your choice after the challenge is over and the showcase presented.

Please use the hashtag #PortraitsUnderTheRain so we can identify images submitted to this challenge more easily.

Be creative, artistic, intense, passionate and poetic!

    I keep trying to add a photo to this challenge, but every time I get a message that it has already been submitted, is in too many groups or I am not following group rules.
