March 2021 Challenge: People.


Recommended Posts

Thanks to Michael for creating such a good challenge last month and for everyone who voted for all the final 8 images.


The subject this month is 'People'.  You can have people as the main subject or not - the choice is yours.  I've chosen people because it's a very accessible subject, everyone has people pics in their port, and you can get creative.  Same rules apply - choose 3 of your best people pics, they must be on Alamy and the competition closes at midnight on Wednesday 31st March.  Good luck!  Here's some of mine as examples.

The top and bottom images from your five above are absolutely first class Andy. Three from me, as if I can get near those two.

Congrats on your win! This is a tough one--lots to sort through but most don't stand out. I'll try these three.

I never thought I could enter this competition but it turns out I have more people shots than I thought.

Definitely _not_ my area of expertise but I'll give it a try anyway. 🙂
