Photography Contest FOTOEMOTION

Fotoemotion photography contest: We invite you to transmit the state of mind felt by people that show: satisfaction, sadness, fantasy, doubt, fear, longing, happiness, etc. To express these emotions, with images that will endure in our retina, is to truly reflect like a mirror, by way of photography or digital art, who we are and how we feel.
