This is the last qualifying round open to everyone before we have our first semifinal. The coming semifinal will only be open to the previous qualifiers. So put your best effort into this qualifying round.

I would like to compliment everyone on the great work in coming up with unique titles that don't include the theme words, keep it up. What I would like to see entrants work on next is adjusting the levels of the photo entered. Does it look a little dark? Is it lacking in contrast? Brighten it up a bit, play with it, at least so that you know the photo is as bright as you want it. Using levels or curves or whatever works for you, crank the white point (brightness) up and down until you find the point that looks best to you. Now do the same with the black point. Not only will it potentially make the photo look better, it will give you an idea of where you can take the photo artistically. Can the brightness or darkness of the photo change the meaning, does it enhance it, or detract from it? You won't know until you try!

For those unfamiliar with editing the levels of a photo, this tutorial is very good:
