Just when we’re about to close your eyes and get into a deep slumber, it is the time when the subconscious is awaken, taking you down to the door that leads to the other dimension! And once you stepped out of that door, you are faced with these rather odd and random sequences, with soft-hued, amorphous shapes which you’re not sure of and it makes you bewildered all at the same time. By the time you wake up, you are left with a very faint memory of what had just happened. And upon realizing it, you could be pastel dreaming.

Those bleached and frosted hues that closely relates to the colours of these dreams can render are what we want to see in this showdown! If you haven’t got one, then it’s time to get clickin’ that camera, you only got one week before this competition ends!

    Are the likes wiped when you submit a photo or just the difference calculated in this style of competition?
