a travel photo is an image that conveys a sense of time and place, portrays a land , its people or a culture in its natural condition and has no geographical limitations.
a nature photo includes both astronomic and underwater images, as well as wildlife pictures in a natural background, up to more focussed macro or micro shots of subjects in their natural condition.
colour is a phenomenon the eye can perceive and photocameras are built similarly, therefore all images having one or more colours belonging to the chromatic scale are accepted.
B/W photography often enhances the sense of drama in the image, making the picture more true-to life than colour which, in some cases, may confuse the onlooker. Photos in this section may also be monochromatic.
a photojournalistic entry or reportage faithfully documents well identifiable facts and aims at telling the lives of people at ordinary or extraordinary moments of their daily lives.
