PHOTOGRAPHY | NIKON HEART OF THE IMAGE CHALLENGE


I found this photo contest over the net and thought it will be interesting to join.
The only question is- WHAT INDEED MAKES THE HEART RACE? SKIP A BEAT? WARM THE HEART?

Speed/adrenaline, thrill of excitement, emotion of the moment?

If I'm joining this contest then I would have to make the most out of it. I will have to win this and prove what indeed defines the heart skipping warming photos.

What makes your heart race?
What makes your heart skip a beat?

Is it speed and adrenaline, the thrill of excitement, or the emotion of the moment?
