WINNERS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE WEEK #013

Quite a major announcement. As from now together with announcement of the winner will try to give some brief comments/critics to every winning photo
in order to bring some more value to the post itself. Lets hope this gonna help to understand some basics of photography, as well pointing tips and tricks while shooting

So here we go...

1ST PLACE
@manoldonchev

Well, this portrait initially caught my attention a lot. Call it personal maybe, but its a fact. It is very unusual composition with great usage of light on a model face, while most of other frame remains in the shadow. Combined with kind of triangle lines of the stone, it makes perfect composition. Well deserved!


2ND PLACE
@yellowmode

Mountain landscape always has WOW factor and guess not for me only. That's because normally most of people lives far away from then. Obviously it is nothing special for a Highlanders, but we are not they :D So what do we have here. Just great diagonal composition pressed from both sides and leading or eye into the road serpentine away.. and away.. and away. White snow on the top of mountains brings additional contrast perfectly looking in BW conversion


3RD PLACE
@digi-me

Just amazing salt flat. At this point I remember our trip to Larnaca with quite famous Salt Lake, just at this time at was completely dried out and without much reflection, just some oil or fat on the top of the salt. And here is majestic reflection!!! And it is very well employed. The reflection of the clouds bring some kind of surrealism, something from another planet... Almost centered but very right weighted composition



HONORABLE MENTIONS

@orjantomarcelo

Honorable mention for creativity in choosing final composition. Have almost broken my neck trying to understand what is it and how is it... Quite amazing example of artistic approach to modern architecture. Those parallel lines works perfectly and repetitive, especially in BW. Just mind-blowing


@boddhisattva

Back to landscapes. This time some lake on sunset. And it is extremely perfectly framed bu grass and trees. While keeping enough space to show us mirror of the calm water and the last ray of the sun on sunset. Actually also mirrored on the water surface. Excellent view!


@tinamarr

And the last one for today. A perfect example of street photography Pretty cool dynamic (made stronger by lover shooting point and wide angle lens) of approaching tram from the right and man's figure in movement from the left. Guess they have to meet somewhere and hopefully without any accident :) those metal holders brings additional leading line, while electric wires making some amazing network in the sky. The image is very well supported by angled building at the foreground, nice balance.
