Re: Tony, I agree with your assumption...

...and I think the average person judging a contest with the given rules would assume the same thing. In other words, to me, somewhere in the photo the context of winter should be evident. Either snow or ice. Or, given the lack of either, winter should be evident in the breath of the man. If I can't see any evidence of winter, I would vote down the photo. I don't care if it is technically winter time in the Amazon river basin or not--the photo needs to convey the thought of winter to me.

Of course, I said, "the average person". The host is not an average person. (but don't let his moxy make you walk away thinking your interpretation was incorrect ).
