SCROLL DOWN TO SEE FIRST PLACE WINNER:
This image displays emotion and love between the father and baby. Nice composition. The monochrome adds to the emotional aspect
Nice composition using the rule of thirds. Photographer also used an odd number of glasses that added to the composition. I would have preferred to see ALL three glasses. One of them is cut off the frame.
Perfect silhouette of the girl and boy, with a lovely yellow sky. The girl’s hand on her dress adds interest to the composition. I think it could be improved if the boy were facing more towards the girl.
Nice angle of the bird with his head tucked in. Composition could be improved by leaving a little bit more room at the tail. White birds are a challenge for exposure. Always check your histogram for over exposed highlights which cause loss of detail.
Nicely composed stamen of a flower with the angle. The soft focus adds to the drama, but appears to be a bit too soft. I little more detail would have worked out better.
Very cute expressions on the child. Photo is well composed with child looking slightly over his shoulder and right into the camera. This could be improved if it had been possible not to include the writing on the car seat.
Two sets of feet and one starfish. Very creative and unique composition. This photographer had a vision that goes beyond what most people see in a scene. He/she picked out the most interesting aspect and photographed only that
