Photoblog Challenges : Results #12

This week on Photoblogchallenges, the winners are Gumnut for Best of 44 (21 Oct – 27 Oct) and Deja for Theme 44 : Subjects of Phobias. Congratulations!

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.

Photoblog Challenges - Results - Best of 44

  • For Theme 44 – Subjects of Phobias: I’d like to start by saying that I’m pretty scared about the pictures submitted for this, as it basically means that most of you were inches from these spiders and snakes and cockroach for instance. I really liked Monica as her spider seems to be dancing and Ben for a stinging shot but I picked in the end Larans that showed the Eiffel tower and reached me what acrophobia is in the same picture

My pick of the week is Remus for Best of 44 (21 Oct – 27 Oct). Not only is it a beautiful light painting shot but it’s a shot that celebrate Remus 9 years of photoblogging. 9 years is a really impressive number. Congratulations and many more to you Remus!

I did hesitate a long time for my pick of the week due to the great submissions of Blendwerk  and My Glass Eye. I loved the curve work and the photorealism of these. I was also amazed by the rendering of Monica but I finally had to settle down for the submission of Steve Rice. Steve has been with Photoblog Challenges since the early days and I’m really jealous of the result he achieved with this weeks submission.

  • For Best of 35 : Decisions were tough this week. I picked Hapzydeco for the fresh look on these cute birds, Klaus Neuner for the very expressive look of his dog and Leovi for his crystal clear fresh shot.

  • For Technique 17 – Sun Rays : The submissions were amazing an it took me the 2 weeks to decide who to vote for. You should really check this challenge out! I picked Monica and Pictografio as their sun rays were the major actor in their dramatic shots.

My pick of the week among the winners was the submission for Technique by Twiggy. It’s always a pleasure to see Twiggy‘s submissions as she is very creative and has a great eye.
