Israel & Palestine: Their People Challenge finished on Thursday, 07 Nov 2013 It's hard to find a part of the world with more history than Israel and Palestine. With so many cultures at play, the area is a photographer's dream. Both traditional and environmental portraits are fine. (Note: The photos may be political and thought-provoking. Or, they can simply capture a slice of life. That is totally up to you guys, and the submitting photographers. (BUT NOTE: I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO DQ AN IMAGE IF I FIND IT OFFENSIVE. I trust that this step will not be necessary, it takes a lot to really offend me.) If you have any questions, please submit early in the week, so that you have plenty of time to submit a different image if there is a problem. As usual for my challenges, Entrants are required to (1) vote for each other entry, (2) read the comments (if any) below this challenge, in case I or other entrants post with Rules questions or clarifications, and (3) follow each of the challenge rules...including voting WITHIN THE FIRST SIX DAYS of the challenge.
