Challenge has finished
In our journey around the world, I somehow forgot to include Japan. Let's make up for that oversight. We will do 2 challenges...this one will focus on Japan's people, and next week will be everything else. Only photos taken inside Japan are eligible. This challenge can have environmental portraits or traditional portraits. From infants to the elderly. Businessmen scurrying off to work, farmers sweating over their crops--whatever message about Japan you want to communicate. The person (or people) must be the main subject of your image. As is 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. **UPDATE** FOR THIS CHALLENGE, YOU **MUST** VOTE ON OR BEFORE TUESDAY night, Pacific Std. Time. (IE, YOU HAVE ONLY 6 DAYS TO VOTE, INSTEAD OF 7 DAYS!!!!).
