Sorry for the delayed feature this month, been quite a busy month for all of us. Congratulations to all the graduates out there as well!

We had a wonderful turn out for submissions this month however before we get into our 'Feature' picks for the month of May we do want to announce our next theme. The theme for June will be 'Warm Colors'! Let's get those cameras ready! As always, everyone who wishes to participate is allowed Two Submissions to the Theme Folder for consideration.

So with that, here are the'Feature' picks from the Co-Founders, you will now find these in our 'Feature' gallery. Congratulations all around to everyone!

Again thanks to everyone that took part in the theme challenge this past month! We look forward to even more great submissions for June!

Hint: How to enter an image already in our gallery folders:
To remove your art from a group, just go to the deviation you'd like removed and you should see something that shows you which groups it's in and lets you remove them. There is a little pencil beside each group, just click on that, and you've removed your photo from the group.
Then re-submit to the contest folder
