Hello repLica, we've already had a photo contest focused on "people, portraits" last year. Perhaps we will hold another portrait contest much later if everybody wants to.

In the interim, let's see your images of cats, dogs, hampsters, birds, butterflies ....

I know you'll surprise us all, JawZ. Hope you've recovered from illness?

And Heike, don't worry. It's still the early days of submission
