218th Show & Tell Competition: Pet Portraits - WINNER

Post Mon Dec 12, 2011 3:58 pm


A Big Thanks to all who entered this contest!! I enjoyed looking at all the photos. To me they are all winners, But, For this contest I can only pick so many so I picked which ones really stood out to me and it was VERY DIFFICULT at times to choose. It was fun and interesting to see how "You"as the photographer Viewed, Composed, And Shot your image. In these images, I have seen how Color, Compostion, Lighting, Clarity, Ect. helps make a big difference in photos, I hope you have seen it too and hope that it helps you in some way in your future images, I know it will help me in mine! Now, Off to the Winner, Placements And Honorable Mentions !! ....

Honorable Mentions ... No particular Order ~


Stuck On You ..

Really like the Simplicity of color and the composure on this, Very Cute photo too! I like the title on the original picture which says .."Darn It!!"



Great Dane Pup ~


Nice Coloring, Nice out of focas background which brings the black and white coat and intense blue eyes right out, Nice Composure!

Territoriality...


I like the colors, Composition, The way his eyes are focased on something other then the camera, And look at those paws!


The Doog ...

I really like this photo, Especially when viewed in Original size, It just pops out at you! Really like the background color which contrast's with his lighter coat and makes him stand out, And look at that face!

3RD Place ~ Tiger Cat ..

Beautiful Eyes, Love how the face just comes out at you and the rest of the composure blends back out of focus, Nice Clarity, Very Nice Lighting, Looks great and pops out , Especially when viewed in large size

2CND Place ~ Kaya ...

Bright color, Nice composition, Lighting, And Clarity, Nice catchlight in the eyes, It all comes together for a Brightly Intense,Composed photo!

1ST Place ~Winner ~ Funny Cat Semen ~

There is just something about this picture that drew my attention to it over and over again! I love the coloring of the coat and eyes and focased out background, The clarity of the eyes and the Expression of the eyes, The lighting of the image ~ It just seems to all merge together and make this photo stand out to me!!!

Again, Thankyou all for your participation in this contest! A Big Congratulations to the Winners!! ( 1ST, 2cnd, And 3Rd, And All HMs!!)

Cats Versus Dogs aside, those were some tough decisions for you, and you've done well in choosing. Thank you for the wonderful HM, and congratulations to all winners. I could hug all your pets! :D :D

Thanks for the HM Debbie! Dougal is such a character; he really wanted to know what was going on with me on my belly telling him to stay still. There were more than a few shots of him coming forward to see if he could help!

Cheers
