Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photo showing one subject in the frame in the Isolating The Subject Photo Contest with chances to win a Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens Solution and more!

A special thanks to our friend and professional photographer Mike Shaw for his collaboration as a guest judge in this photo contest. "I'm a working class man from a small industrial town called Widnes in the North West of England. I first picked up a camera in 2006 to see how I would fare and fell in love with the medium. Although I have no specific genre I love both portraits (human and animal) and landscapes’. I have since gone on to develop editing procedures utilizing Adobe CC and Lightroom to produce works that stand out from the norm by isolating the subject."

Grand Jury Winner

"Normally I'm not a huge fan of poses model shots but this just stood out. The tones and the beautiful whites used throughout the composition are elegant. The air of mystery that comes through because the model has her eyes closed adds another dimension to the shot. It's a well executed image but has a warmth from her skin tones that balances against the white background and elements of her hair. It's simply wonderful." - Mike Shaw
