Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photo showing creative use of angles and composition in the Clever Angles Photo Contest with chances to win a Canon 5D MK III camera body or Nikon D800 camera body!

A special thanks to friend and professional photographer Alex Benetel for his collaboration as a guest judge. Alex Benetel is a twenty one year old student and photographer from Sydney, Australia. Being fortunate enough to have travelled to many places since quite a young age, she has become very familiar with the importance of documenting a memory or special occasion with the use of a camera. At the age of 16, she enrolled in a Visual Design course which sparked her passion for photography. In 2014, she was named as one of the 20 best artists on Flickr and was flown to New York to exhibit her work. The Flickr20under20 exhibition was curated by Ivan Shaw, Director of Photography for Vogue.

Grand Jury Winner

"This image stood out to me right from the beginning. The angle at which it has been shot shows off not only the contrasting colour palette but also a human vs. nature element. It’s a really powerful image. I’m absolutely in love with the different textures and the overall vibrancy of the photograph. I could go on all day analyzing every little thing, but I won’t! What I will say is that this artist is extremely deserving of the grand prize!" - Alex Benetel

Runner Up

"At first glance, I’m sure many think this photograph is a simple photo of a person at the beach. But, I haven’t seen it shot at this angle before! I thought it was a really interesting choice. It being in black and white also allows the audience to zone in on the concept. It’s almost as if a giant has found itself into another world – who knows what it will get up to next! It’s playful, but there’s this serious mood to it, which I thought was quite different! Well done." - Alex Benetel

Runner Up

"I’m always amused by these types of shots. Adding in the blur movement in the background has created a really cool sci-fi quality. I actually turned my laptop upside down to see what the shot would look like if it was flipped and I actually liked it even better! Overall, a very cool angle and image. I also really love that clear line between light and shadow down the centre of the image. Awesome work!" - Alex Benetel
