It is important to realise that every photographer may interpert each subject quite differently to the next person. The definitons below are therefore very brief, and are only to be used as a guideline……
FEBRUARY Landscape: Feb 11th
MPS Club Landscape Definition: The club's applicable definition of a Landscape for this purpose is as follows: “While a prominent feature of the image should be a landform, this definition does include where the land meets the sea /ocean or lake. Images can therefore show some representation of both land and water. It does not include Cityscapes.”

Photographs inspired by or depicting a song, rhyme or poem.
APRIL Eyes: April 14th
Eyes should be the dominant part of the image. They could be the eyes of an animal, human or otherwise
