153rd Show & Tell Competition: Contrast or Clash - WINNER

Post Mon Apr 12, 2010 2:04 pm


First and foremost, my sincere thanks to everyone for their contributions to this competition!

Like many a competition before this I'm sure, judging has been difficult to say the least, but more importantly great fun, seeing different peoples interpretations of the theme and an abundance of high quality pictures. Without further ado, I will get down the knitty gritty and announce the all important results ....

In no particular order, the honourable mentions:

Brad Claypole: I love the warming tones of this wagon against the milky blue skies, the yellow autumnal tree and the cold of the crisp white snow.
The contrasts of warm and cold and an almost tranquil feel make this an extremely atmospheric image


Juan Leon: as soon as I saw this image I thought Italy - the red, white and green contrast nicely then there's a clash bright pink. This would make
a great photo for a caption contest! Great composition and DOF


Scott Johnson: I love this image for its soft purple hues together with the cream and vibrant red blooms


Sandi Whiteker: I love the simplicity of this picture which at first glance looks like an oil painting, nice and simple but very effective


Peter Schmidt: simply for the vibrancy of the colours and what looks like almost an explosion of light from the centre of the flower


Josep M Rodríguez: I chose this for simplicity .... great depth of field, wonderful contrasting colours, a simply lovely image


Margaret Lew: a vibrant and crisp purple bloom with a spectrum of leaf tones against the more subdued sandy tone of the wall, another simple
but effective image


THIRD PLACE:
Gill Kopy: a great picture of contrasts and clashes! Whilst it was definitely contrasts of colour I was looking for, who can dispute the contrast
of expressions here? As for the outfits, without doubt, there are a few clashes going on!


SECOND PLACE:
J Rayner: I just love the eye-poppingly bright red fences bouncing out of an otherwise dull and dreary scene, great capture with extreme
atmosphere


WINNER:
Terry Bowker: a dramatic image, it stretches the imagination as to what might have been going on there - brilliant yellow and subtle shades
of purple, togewhter with his sparkling white teeth. Great timing, great light, great capture and, in my mind, a worthy winner .... well done!


Congratulations Terry, it's now over to you for number 154!

Great winner! My guess would be a scene during the Holi festival?

Many of you probably know of this site, but for the rest: check out http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2010/03/holi_2010.html for more awesome pictures of people covered in dazzling fluorescent colors.
