Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photos showing the main subject in the middle in the Centered Compositions Photo Contest with chances to win a Nikon D7100 and more!

"Looking at so many images at once, all with the subject in the middle, was a daunting task. I first went through all of the photos. Then I proceeded to go through them again and pick out the ones that spoke to me. By that I mean the images that I really wanted to look at longer, or ones that got a reaction. I came up with more than I should have, with a few on the side that were possibilities. I knew I had to pick no more than 6.  I kept going back to "The lost board”. The angle - from the air and the colors are striking. I could make up so many stories about the image, and that is what defines a successful photograph to me. The subject matter is not the only important aspect of an image, but the tones of a black and white image, or the colors in a color photograph play important rolls. Everything must work together to seduce me to want to jump in and become a part of the image, to study each corner as I learn more about the photograph. Congratulations to all of these photographers! It was a pleasure to look at them all." - Jill Enfield
