Photoblog Challenges : Results #15

This week on Photoblogchallenges, the winners are Spectrum for Best of 47 (11 Nov – 17 Nov)Shaker for Theme 47 : Rainy and Pictografio for Technique 23 : HDR.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.

  • For Best of 47 (11 Nov – 17 Nov): This week I picked Pictografio with the polish aviation museum. I think it’s a nice architectural shot and being of polish ascent  it spoke to me too. I also picked Rue Du Lavoir for taking us in a factory without anybody. It has a quiet feel to it, almost abandoned. I finally picked up Weib for a very expressive cow with a nice processing.

  • For Technique 23 – HDR: I do believe that HDR is a big divide in photography. You have those that can’t live without it and those that wouldn’t even consider it.  For me HDR has it’s ups and downs but most importantly it needs to be subtile. That’s the reason why I picked Frances and Shaker. They bring wide range of colors and details.

My pick of the week is Deja for Theme 47 – Rainy. I can really visualize what the experience must have been with the bikes roaring in the mud. This shot takes me in the middle of the action and without the rain it would be a completely different shot.

With a week full of birds, my pick of the week had to be one of them. I was split between several but finally set my heart on Ellebelle‘s lonely bird. I love the framing and the fact that this lonely cutie seems to be chirping.

  • For Best of 34 : There were a lot of great submissions this week. I’m glad that Mittened Hands is among the winners for his first submission. I really liked the fan’s passion and happiness. Congratulations and welcome! I picked Gumnut for the great layers of warm light, Remus for a flawless nostalgic shot, Xerraire for her amazing shot of a flying heron and Weib for a beautiful black and white with a funny title.

  • For Theme 34 – Sunny : I really liked the processing from Twiggy. With various choices from everyone I only had one pick. I picked Vaido for the great feeling of holidays in these last days of summer.

My pick of the week among the winners was the tape from Remus. It reminded me of so much good memories. Loved the mechanical aspect of these.
