April’s winner, Othman Kammah (Click here to Visit and see his photography) has chosen the theme “closer” for this month’s challenge.  All you need to do is to submit your image to the TRP Flickr group thread HERE and the Mirrorlessons Flickr group thread HERE.  The submission threads will close on May 31st at which time Heather, Mat and I will choose our three favorites and put them up for a vote which will run for 5 days.  Once a winner from that vote is determined, they will get to choose the theme for June and we begin again!  The winner this month will join Othman and Marco in a semi annual vote which will see one of the six monthly winners voted on to win our first champions giveaway!

So get close, and get shooting.  Enjoy and I look forward to seeing everyone’s submissions!!!

Happy shooting,

Tyson
