Challenge has finished
Pete Turner is undoubtedly among the first masters of color photography. He is recognized as one of the 20 most influential photographers of all time, honored with the prestigious "Outstanding Achievement in Photography" award.

Americana is a collection of images that has moved photographers to explore their surroundings, by shooting simple objects in color, and cropping to transform a simple idea into something outstanding. Let's pay homage to the American Way with our own photos.

PLEASE read the rules before entering the challenge.
