  • Competition Comment: Nice pictures guys! It's sad to see though, that most of these pictures are about showing the sadness and tragedies that are happening in your communities. Don't happy people also make the news? Isn't there any successes, wins, achievments, that would make stunning pictures? I chose the rallye picture because it shows hope in a better world, that people can be part of the change they want to see. The international news are full of tragedies and bad news. People are counting on their local or community newspapers to give them a bit of hope! Show the good news that are in the commuity. Emotions don't have to always refer to fires and firefighters... Thanks for submitting your pictures.
