Grand Jury Winner

“Not only is this a great moment, it’s amazing composition. This looks like a work of Asian art – and the depth of field is gorgeous. I love how we can see the eye and strong intent of this bird – and he’s placed in a picture perfect environment. Quality of light is sublime – and processing is lovely as well. A really complete photo in every way.” – Karen

Runner Up

“Fantastic photo! The mushrooms take this one over the top, for sure; they add such an usual pop of color and whimsy to the whole moment. Exposure is super, as is the DOF. Love how the bird looking up makes us wonder what’s up there. Would’ve loved to see more of his/her face… but good lord that’s getting picky. Still… it’s the ONLY thing that allowed the other 2 to edge it out. Really lovely indeed.” – Karen

Runner Up

“This is great for the pop of color these birds have against the monochrome background AND for the story of the conversation they’re obviously having. I like how the branch runs diagonally through the image – although it’s a little prominent on the left side. It’s overshadowed by the strength and usual moment between the birds, however… which is what makes this image work so well.” – Karen

Scott Denny
People's Choice

“If I could, I’d have made them a tie! What an unusual moment – and a truly complete catch on the part of the photographer! The story is right there, exposure and composition spot-on. Depth of field is lovely. This is a photograph to be proud of.” -Karen

Experimental Angles Photo Contest Winners!

Another contest has ended and we have been blown away by the amazing quality and originality of the entries. The following images show experimental angles and the different perspectives shown in the contest submissions are awesome. We are excited to have such a talented guest judge for this contest, Emma Brabrook. Emma is based in South Wales, UK. She first got interested in photography many, many years ago, but she really got actively stuck into it five years ago. Emma loves teaching others more about photography and retouching and has a soft spot for beautiful landscape photographs. Her favourite photographers are many of the greats – Annie Leibovitz, Paolo Roversi and Gregory Crewdson to name a few.

Jon Leiweke
Grand Jury Winner

“I love the colors in this image and the lines on the bottom of the frame really draw your eye into the picture and off into the distance, so you take the journey along that road yourself.” – Emma

David Freid
Runner Up

“This photo made me think of a tiny little fairground in the middle of the desert, which was quite fun to think about! I thought it was a clever use of perspective.” – Emma

Jay Lawler
People's Choice

“I love the striking color palate of the yellow, black and white. It really catches your eye! It’s great seeing all the band members marching in step from above, all looking the same aside from the instruments they carry.” – Emma
