168th Show & Tell Competition: Eye Contact - WINNER

Post Sat Aug 28, 2010 8:58 pm


There were really many very nice shots entered in this contest. It was very difficult to eliminate a number of photographs to narrow the field down to the final selections. I started my process by taking three dozen initial images and placing them in a folder and start sorting them; in most cases I do not know who’s photograph is who’s unless there is a water mark in the image. When there is only one judge for a contest like this, the final selections come down to personal preference. I hope you like my selections.


First the Honorable Mentions in no particular order:

by Dennis Camp

“Portrait of an Artist Two” by GP Merfeld

Image
William Von Gonten

Image
“what are YOU looking at” by Daniel McCarey

Image
“Hello, I’m a Rainbow Lorikeet” by Chris Lock

5th Place
Brad’s capture of this wolf is really a wonderful composition capturing the action; the eye contact here is brilliant!

Brad Claypole

4th Place
I just love this image of Swimming by Peter. Great composition here, the reflections of the subject in the water as well as her arms visible beneath the water lead your eye to the subject’s eyes.

3rd Place
Great shot of this crab, excellent reflection, color and composition! No doubt about eye contact here!
Image
Wot U looking at ?... Heh by Nick Vivian

2nd Place
Such wonderfully sharp image of this Swan. The lovely red colors against the black of the feathers make for a terrific composition.

Black Swan 1 – Swan River
by Marcel de Jong

1st Place
This image fascinates me! I love the depth of field here, the dark background really makes this image pop. Great color and dynamic range as well as the framing of the eye really made this a winner in my opinion. Congratulations Juan!
