This competition was sparked by a discussion in the ‘A Photographers Craft’ forum. The idea being to photograph an apple or something similar, and use digital imagery to alter the original image.
Two of the top three have been mentioned here before in the Promotion, so i will not re-introduce them. Karri is a mother with a talent for turning the everyday image into a piece of art. All three have a wealth of talent and are very deserving of their efforts in the competition. Adriana Glackins effort has some lovely texture and simple colours that bring the apple to life. Dana DiPasquales image once again emphasises the colour of the apple, with a lovely perspective and texture. Karri Klawiters use of light is exquisite.
My entry Ode to Life came equal second. This image was taken when my wife and i were just about to leave Brugge, packs on our backs, walking to the train station. We had some time, so we sat, relaxed, and breathed in the beauty of Belgium, one more time. It will always remind me of those times of peace between travelling.
I am happy to say that i have come first in the latest Promote each other competition.
My entry Sister Two was taken of my sister-in-law after our visit to Auschwitz. We went to a bar in the old Jewish quarter of Krakow, to have a drink and reflect. I think this image best displays our feelings at the time. A feeling none of us had ever experienced before. To have been, too see, to smell such a place of despair and death.
Sue Wickhams entry On Her Way was the last photo she took of her daughter before she left in the car, on her way to the church with her father, to be married.
Dana DiPasquale’s entry Waiting to Say Goodbye was taken when waiting to attend funeral services for a beloved uncle that has passed away. She saw these antique children’s chairs that her aunt had and decided to spend some time taking photos of them to get her mind off of things.
This time i did not miss the competition, but i had no images that fit the rules. Basically, i have not experimented with sepia as of yet. Once again, below is the winner followed by the runners up.
