There will be a challenge on Indo + water, and another on Indo + non-water shot. Please, enter images that you've not already used in prior challenges . . . let's see something fresh and new from you. (I will likely depend on help from other challenge participants in tracking down violators. So, images that are repeats could be DQ'd at any time . .. even after the challenge ends!) See my earlier challenges, or send me a PM, if you have any questions about what an "environmental" portrait is. In addition, this particular challenge is for subjects that are *not* staring into the camera and/or not posing for the camera.
