WINNER - 99th Show & Tell Competition

Post Fri Oct 10, 2008 4:44 am


Hello! Thanks for all of your submissions. I had no idea judging would be as difficult as it was. There were so many amazing photographs entered.

Starting with honorable mentions in random order:



I was in the dark on this one until I read the caption "Sagrada Familia"...of course! What a great shot. I certainly did not notice the spires from this perspective when I was visited Barcelona. I also like how the structures carve an hourglass into the sky, lending an element of "time" to the church whose construction has officially never been finished.



Great B&W shot...nice composition with lots of pattern. I still haven't completely convinced myself of where the airplanes come from...hmmm?



Nice macro shot. I was admittedly in the dark until I read the caption. Striking!...pun intended.



I figured there would be at least a couple of entries of this type. The photo of these "Ladies" is a superb B&W. I especially like the dual contrast between skin tone and hair color.



Another great composition. I'm drawn to the sharp lines and angles, as well and the excellent lighting that gives way to a gradient of shadows.



Wonderfully creepy...looks like a mythical creature slinking back into the ocean. Great find!


Third place:



For me, the brilliance of this photo lies in its simplicity and powerful symbolism.

Second place:



I really like the slightly elongated crop on this photo - adds dimension to the visual. It definitely took a few moments to determine what I was looking at. A stunning capture.

First place (Winner):



I absolutely love this photo. The texture and color are brilliant. And it's a stellar example of crypsis via mimicy. Also impressive is the fact that it must have taken a keen eye to spot this deceptive little critter. Well done!

Thanks again to everyone...

I pass the torch for the next competition to the first place winner, M. Grompe.

Cheers,

John S.

Thank you for the honorable mention. I'm glad you found my photograph 'striking' ;-)

Congratulations to the winners!

PS- I believe the photo with the two airplanes is a necktie.
