Congratulations Grand Jury Winner "Knives and Onions" by PhotoWorks

Knives and Onions by DonHoekwater - Commercial Style Photo Contest

"Commercial photography exists mainly to grab your attention and sell you on something. In the case of Knives & Onions we have got not only a beautifully lit subject, but the composition is faultless in my view. The earthly tones all compliment each other very well too. It's a great image that really works on many levels commercially. " - Dallas Dahms

Congratulations Runner Up "Milk and honey" by hazelmansell-greenwood

Milk and honey by hazelmansell-greenwood - Commercial Style Photo Contest

"Visually there is a lot going on in this image that captivates. The burst of colour, the model's position in the bath, the colourful tattoos. It has vibrance and mystery. It's an imaginative image that draws you closer. I'd buy whatever she's selling!  Really good work. " - Dallas Dahms

Congratulations Runner Up "Sunset Sip" by Joseph_Belcher

Sunset Sip by Joseph_Belcher - Commercial Style Photo Contest

"This scene epitomises what the product is all about. Feelings of warmth, the mellowness of the background, the fact that the bottle has been busy and is not full like in most product shots. I can almost hear mellow music in the background. It works for me.  " - Dallas Dahms
