Photoblog Challenges : Results #1
This week on photoblogchallenges, congratulations are in order for Treur, Fototopia and Rue Du Lavoir winners for Best of 33 (05 Aug – 11 Aug), Theme 33 : Begins with “F” and Technique 16 : Macro of insects.
Celine and I are permanent guest judges and since the middle of the year we switched the roles a little. She has to pick one favorite from the winning pictures and I have to pick several “non-winners”.
Each week I will try to shed some light on some of my choices.
- For Best of 33 : I particularly liked the submission from Treur for the great silhouette and Tapio for the adventures of his ladybug. I picked Deja for his intriguing macro, Leovi for a sharp fresh abstract, Light Impressions for a very detailed flamingo with amazing colors and Remus for a puzzling work in Black and White.
- For Theme 33 – Begins with “F”: Treur and Joel Schilling had great frog renditions with amazing details and I’m glad they were picked. I picked the flower from PhotoLeoGrapher for the great use of the depth of field and a very fresh green. My second choice was Red Rock Photography with a splendid field.
- For Technique 16 – Macro of insects : I’m really amazed by the level of details from Rue Du Lavoir and pretty envious. This challenge was the first for Lena Ericsson and her delicate butterfly is among the winners. Welcome to Photoblogchallenges Lena! I picked Thorgun and her bumblebee for the details (look at the pollen!) and Twiggy for making a creepy crawler look beautiful!
My pick of the week, among all the winners would have to be Rue Du Lavoir for is macro of insect. Here it is.
