The Results Are In: June Photo Contest!
For the latest monthly photo contest, as with every month’s contest, I was presented with a number of excellent entries to choose from. Thank you to everyone who sent in your shots and for making my job so tough.
So, without further ado, the winner of an 8×10 of one of my shots (a $50 value) is:
“Rare Indeed” by mreid1166
What I really liked about this shot has the desaturated, high contrast look and the excellent depth of field. The choice of a square crop draws further attention to the shot and just the right amount of vignetting to keep your eyes in the frame. I really enjoy the reflection of the subject in the metal within the right-hand third and the grungy yet tack sharp words in the top third. I like all of the repeating patterns of vertical and horizontal lines in the lattice work, the brick, the stripes in the awning and the subject’s shirt, they really add interest throughout. Very well done!
As always, there were a number of shots that deserve mention for their artistry and unique approaches to image making:
Thanks again to everyone who entered and I hope to see what you will be coming up with for next month’s photo contest.
