MIDNIGHT GMT 31ST MAY 2009 - SUBMISSIONS CLOSED!
VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE!
Hi everyone! Welcome to May's Assignment!
The theme for this month is "Delicate", as suggested by Sublimity who won the March 2009 competition.
In Sublimity's own words: "The theme for May is Delicate: the quality of being easily broken or damaged; fragility; brittle. Bodily weakness; liability to sickness; frailty. Some suggestions would be something luxurious, tristful, ephemeral, transitory, and so on. Don't hesitate to make your own interpretations! Moderate post-processing allowed to develop atmosphere for the concept."
