43rd Show and Tell Competition: Light and Shadow - *WINNER*

Post Sun Apr 08, 2007 8:47 am


First I must apologize profusely for the delay in announcing the winner. I've been out of the country with little internet access, and it didnt help that I had so many great images to choose from with my dial-up connection.
There were many fantastic submission, but I had to pick the winner based on whether the theme was the focal point of the photo. So with no further delay...

Runner Up: Hell hath no fury
Image
I really enjoyed the film-noir nod (in color). The neon light shows the main character well while the dark background reinforces the murkiness of the scene. The atmosphere hit me like a sledgehammer. You really wonder about what the rest of the story will be...

Runner Up: Mystic Morning
Image
The religious overtone of this image is unmistakable. "Adam and Eve" submerged in darkness while rays of light fill the background. This is quite a powerful image. There were many silhouettes submitted - but I felt this was the most multi-dimensional.


Winner: Climber
Image
This image made me do several double-takes. The unusual composition of the figure (dead-center) forced me to really scrutinize it. I can almost feel the oppressive force of the dark clouds above. Is the climber forcing his way up (an image about hope) or is this an image of despair?

Thanks to Popeye for a good theme

I'm sure all 8 shots could have gone in one thread to avoid flooding. I can see the logic in that, obviously Ghengis Khan't

But hey, each to his own

Congrats to all participants and winners. Some really nice shots there.
It would be ok with me if the winner or runner up saw fit to post up
competition #44 now. Eventually we will get this done.

I have just sent a PM to the winner to let him know of the victory, cause somehow i don't think that he is aware of the competition result. :)
I think that if he does not respond than we must apply the rules and pass the torch to the second runner up, what do you say?
